The boy discovered a girl crouching on one of the stepping stones. The boy guessed that she was the only child of Mr. Brown's son. Mr. Brown owned a section of wheat field near our village. Mr. Brown's son's family had to move here. The boy wasn't sure why because when his parents were talking about Mr. Brown he almost fell asleep though, he vaguely heard Mr. Brown's son had failed in his business in the city.The girl was staring at the water as if she was seeing her face reflected on the surface of the water. Her neck was extremely white. He wasn't brave enough to ask her to move out of the way.Even though he worried about being late for school, he couldn't tell her. About ten minutes passed. There were people who wanted to cross. He could follow them.After that day, the girl hadn't shown up at the stream for a week. As the days passed, the boy felt very grumpy.One day, the boy went out to the stream. The girl wasn't there. The boy sat on one of the stepping stones.

When I used to live in the city I went on picnics pretty far away with my parents."He was afraid that the girl would think him a coward if he refused to go so he agreed.They walked beside wheat fields that had just been harvested. He thought 'I am supposed to go home and feed the horses.'.They got to the foot of the mountain. The girl admired the beautiful flowers that spread all over the mountain like a silk carpet.They sat side by side on a rock. The sunshine of the fall afternoon made them feel very warm. Suddenly the girl stood up quietly and walked into a very steep slope where bunches of cosmos were blooming. She tried to cut the stems of the flowers. They were very tough.
