New to America
Nancy was new to America. She came to America speaking only her native language. She brought her 8-year-old son with her. He was all she had in this world.
or He was all she had.
They found an apartment in Arcadia. They had been there for a couple of months only
neighbor's dog jumped over the fence. The dog ran toward Nancy's son. Nancy put her body in between the dog and her son. The dog stopped when it heard
Nancy screaming at it. She was going to punch it in the nose. The dog backed off.
Shaking, Nancy took her son upstairs. They stayed in the apartment all weekend. Then Nancy found another apartment, close to the school her son attends/goes to.
She and her son walked everywhere. One day her son started coughing badly. He had an asthma attack. All the walking made
his asthma worse.
Nancy knew that she had to buy a car. So she called up the Honda dealer. She talked to a salesman who spoke her language. She told him that she wanted to buy a new car if he could come over to pick her up. The salesman said he would be right over.
