“Father, do you see Mother in your dreams?” the young girl asks. “You know sometimes I do.”
“Mother comes to see me a lot, you know. We sit and talk.” The father smiles. “How is your homework coming along?”
“Why do I have to study so hard?”
“It is what your mother would have wanted!”
She regrets speaking her mind. “I’m sorry, Father, I shouldn’t have said that.” She looks up and sees his eyes well up with tears.
“It’s okay, love,” he gets up and pours himself a drink. “I’ll just sit outside for a while. You finish up your work, okay?”
“I’m sorry, Father; Mother did love you very much. She told me all the time.”
“Homework, first, eh? Then we can chat about your mother.”
He heads off outside and sits in his usual chair, looking around the courtyard. The whole area relaxes the mind and somehow soothes the soul.
“All finished, Father. May I get a drink and sit with you? I have some questions.”
She comes with two drinks one for him and one for herself. He looks surprised. She never really liked him having a drink. Although he had cut back a lot from before he brought her here, it still seemed strange.
“Mother told me all about you. That is before she passed away. We would laugh together at your love stories.”
He listens without uttering a single sound.
“Why didn’t you come and take her away with you? She really wanted that. Did you know that?”
Her father looks at his daughter lovingly. “Circumstances(情况) were difficult back then. It was just the way things were. When it came time to…” he sighs. “To visit her it was too late.”
The girl smiles. “I hope I will have the same kind of love you and mother had.”
“Without all the heartache,” her father adds.
“She always knew you loved her. She told me every day,” the child mentions cheerfully. “I saw her crying sometimes when she read your letters.”
“Did she make you promise to look after me?” she inquires.
“She asked me to take care of you.”
“You promised her, didn’t you?”
“Yes, I did.”
“It is nice out here, isn't it? Mother would have been very happy here.”
She talks with some authority. Her father remains silent. A smile comes to his weary brow. He nods his head.
“Mother wanted me to give you something. I think now the time is right.” She runs to her room. Upon returning she hands her father a book. “It’s mother’s diary! She wanted me to give it to you.”
He takes the book and holds it in his trembling hands, “Thank you.”
“Mother said you would understand things better.”
“Wise woman, your mother.”
He places the book on the table as he gets up. The girl gets up and wraps herself around her father.
“I love you.” she looks up at his face.
He picks her up and hugs her. “I love you, too.” His voice trembles.
“It’s okay, Father. We have each other now and mother is in both of us.”
He kisses her head.
“Time you went to bed,” her father softly says.
He puts her down and she scampers off to get washed and ready for bed.
Clearing up everything he checks on his daughter. She is in bed waiting for her good night kiss. He tucks her in and bids her goodnight.
Just as he is to leave, she tells him. “Mother told me she adopted (收养)me when I was a baby.”
He stands at her bedroom door. Words fail him. Yes, he knew she was adopted.
“I am really lucky for being loved by my parents, even if I am not really theirs.”
“You trying to bring on the water works?” he tells her.
She giggles, “Goodnight, Father. I love you.”
“Love you, too.”
His face lights up as he wipes his dampened eyes.
The door closes and the child falls asleep dreaming of her mother.
Sitting outside he picks up the diary and opens it and reads the first line: “I love you, my dearest, if only things could have been different…”

Next time you make yourself a hot cup of tea or coffee，you might want to let it cool down a bit before drinking.
Researchers say letting your hot drinks cool off could help you avoid some kinds of cancer. Researchers at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) found evidence that drinks at temperatures above 65 degrees Celsius, when swallowed, can cause cancer of the esophagus (食道). The researchers examined findings from other studies where tea and coffee were often served at 70degrees Celsius or above. Those studies were completed in Iran, China and South America.
In developed countries, health experts have linked esophageal cancer to smoking and alcoholic drinks. However, this form of cancer is more common in areas where people drink beverages at very high temperatures.
In Europe and the United States, many people drink coffee and tea at temperatures around 60degrees Celsius. And they often add milk which lowers the temperature considerably. However，tea﹣drinkers in Iran and mate﹣drinkers in South America often enjoy their beverages at closer to 70degrees Celsius.
The researchers note that South Americans not only drink their mate very hot，they also drink it through a metal straw. This sends the scalding liquid directly into the throat.
The findings, however, are good news for coffee drinkers. In 1991, the World Health Organization listed coffee as possibly carcinogenic (致癌的). WHO officials have since changed their position on that listing. They now suggest that the temperature of your hot drink is a greater risk factor than the actual drink itself.
The results suggest that drinking very hot beverages is one probable cause of esophageal cancer and that it is the temperature, rather than the drinks themselves, that appears to be responsible.
1.What might be the cause of esophageal cancer in developed countries？
A. Smoking. B. Alcoholic drinks. C. Unhealthy vegetables. D. Hot drinks.
2.Where do tea﹣drinkers like adding milk？
A. In China. B. In Iran. C. In South America. D. In Europe.
3.What does the underlined word “scalding” in paragraph 5 mean？
A. Sweet. B. Hot. C. Sour. D. Harmful.
4.What is the best title for the passage？
A. Cool it Down before Drinking B. Hot Drinks Are Still Popular
C. Hot Drinks Linked to Cancer D. Tea or Coffee, a Different Choice.
For as long as I can remember, seniors have attracted too little attention from society as a whole. For example, people may shrink physically as they get older and have a higher incidence(发生率) of falls, but how many people have thought about buying a more comfortable and stable chair for their elderly parents?
We spend generously on our children, such as hiring a nanny to take care of them .When we look for a nanny for our baby, we believe that someone who charges 8.000 yuan must be better than a person who charges 5, 000 yuan because they have a better grasp of how to interact with babies, But when we look for someone to take care of our elderly parents, we usually keep the cost as low as possible, We just want to make sure that caregivers will prepare three meals a day for our seniors, but we don’t take their psychological needs into consideration.
The differences in attitudes are obvious. However, we are not yet old, so perhaps it's hard for us to understand the bitterness of the elderly: regression(衰退)in health, a handful of pills every day, not being able to catch up with developments in the digital age, and the disappearance of the old streets and favorite restaurants from the good old days. Those are the kinds of lives they live and we may even live through something similar in the decades to come.
If we think about how we want to be treated when we grow old, we should start the changes today. Because the elderly were once the backbone of society and made huge contributions, they should enjoy the fruits of the country's development as well
1.What situation might old people face according to the text?
A. A high and stable income. B. Physical inconvenience.
C. Much concern from the public. D. Short of favorite food and fruits.
2.Which of the following can replace the underlined word “nanny” in paragraph 2?
A. home teacher B. coach C. storyteller D. babysitter
3.Why is it difficult for us to understand the bitterness of old people?
A. Because we fail to catch up with their development.
B. Because we are sharing a similar lifestyle with them
C. Because we are too young to experience their condition
D. Because we have spent much money looking after them
4.What does the writer think of the elderly?
A. They can make greater contributions. B. They are worth the attention from society
C. They should start to change themselves D. They need a handful of pills every day.

These are the worst shoes I have ever worn! The leather came off after only one week, and everybody thought they were ugly. The bottom of the shoes made everything slippery. My boss fired me because he hated them! From then on, I will only wear Brand X shoes !
These shoes do exactly what shoes are supposed to do. There isn’t anything too special about them. In the morning, I put them on and go to work. They look delightful enough , and they are quite durable. I will probably buy another pair.
These shoes are my favourite ones. I met my bride while buying a pair of these shoes. She was the saleswoman at the store I bought them at , and after she sold me three pairs, I asked her for her phone number and we started dating. Soon after that, we were engaged（订婚）. We are getting married this afternoon, and I couldn’t be happier.
