Family Dinner

James knocks on the door of Valeria's parents' house. Valeria is his fiancée. He is feeling really shy.

Valeria opens the door and says ‘Hola! Welcome to my house!’ Then she introduces James to her parents.

Valeria is Spanish. Her traditions are different from James'. James goes inside and sits down at a table.

There is a lot of Spanish food. It is his first time trying it and he has no idea of what each dish is.

James asks: What is it?

Valeria smiles and says ‘It is a Spanish omelette made with potato, eggs, onions’.

James tries the food and he really likes it.

‘It's delicious’ he says.

James thanks Valeria and her parents.

They spend a few hours laughing, eating and talking. It is a nice evening but it is getting late.

James stands up and says ‘I’m sorry but I think it’s time to go home.’

James thanks everyone and slowly heads back home.
