Some people come into our lives and quickly go.

Some people stay a while and leave footprints in our hearts and we are never the same.

“Many people will walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.”

The problem for me lies in finding texts (stories) written in present tense, which I could use for my classes. Even those labeled as "basic… Continue

He glared at the driver and said, "Big John doesn't pay!" and sat down at the back.

The driver was five feet three,…
