Oh, Nurzhan. Don't be foolish. You waste your time. Papa will never change his thinking because of you. "
Let me try to get permission for you from Papa
It's okay, Nurzhan, it wasn't a big deal. Shannon can tell me all about the dance.
After dinner, I hid in our room, leaving Nurzhan to try and convince Mama and Papa to let me go to the dance...I was reading my math textbook when I realized that I no longer could hear Mama and Papa talking. Then, Nurzhan slowly opened the door, a solemn look on his face.
I'm sorry, Maya, Papa and Mama both said no.
I turned around and opened the room door quietly. I poked my out of the room, the kitchen light was still on, and I could see Mama's shadow walking around. I walked to the kitchen quietly, trying not to wake up Nurzhan. I called out Mama's name, and she turned around startled. I took in a deep breath and clenched my fists tightly.
Instead of going to the dance tomorrow, could I instead invite Shannon, David, and Daniel to a small gathering instead?
Okay, Maya, I will allow Shannon and these boys to come over. But I will have to convince Papa to allow it. “
Hey, Maya! You look really nice.
Thanks, Daniel. You can come in and sit down, all of the food is ready...
Me and Shannon were laughing heartedly, and Daniel and David were enjoying the food. Not only were they enjoying the food, they were talking to Papa. I have never seen Papa speak so much English in one sitting. They were talking about wrestling, and it made me happy to see Papa enjoying himself at my party.
Your friends, even the boys, are nice, Maya. Keep these friends.
After the party,I walked everyone to the door, and when I turned around, I jumped as I wasn't expecting to see Papa standing behind me.
