- Hi! the boy shouted while dragging the 'i'
- Hello, Peter. An older male replied. The basked was wiggling, as Peter seemed excited seeing the one he was meeting.
- Arthur! I made a lunch. The boy took the basket up in a hasty swing. I jumped a little.
- Okay, let's have it then. Arthur replied with a smile in his voice.
