Englishman Paul

Englishman Paul

“Tomorrow is the 1️⃣st of September”, Mom👱‍♀️said.
– And now autumn has come, and you will go to the2️⃣grade. Hmm…., how time flies⌛!

🧖‍♂️Dad said with a laugh on this occasion, let’s🔪"slaughter" the watermelon🍉! And he took a knife and cut open the watermelon. I opened😮my mouth to eat a watermelon, but then the door🚪open and👦Paul entered the room. We were all incredibly😀happy, because he had not been with us for quite a while, and we really missed him.

– Whoa, who came⁉️- Dad said.
– Paul. Sit down with us, there is🍉watermelon, - said my mom👱‍♀️.
I said: Hello!👋and gave him a seat🪑next to me.
– Hello! He said and sat down.

And we started to eat🍽️and ate for a long time and were silent🔇. We were hesitant to talk and who cares about the talk when there is such delicious food in our mouth👄!

And when👦Paul was given the third slice🍉, he said:
– Hmmm…, I❤️love watermelon. Much more. My grandmother👵never gives me enough to eat.
– And why❓Mom asked.
– She says that after a watermelon, the stomach gets🔥upset.
“True”,🧖‍♂️Dad said. - That's the reason we eat watermelon early in🌄the morning. By evening🌆, its effect 🔚ends, and you can sleep peacefully🛏️. Eat, don't be afraid.

And we all get down to business again without any🤐talks for a long time⌛. Mom began to remove the crusts🍉, dad said:
– Why, Paul, haven't you been with us for so long❔
“Yes”,👦🏻I said. - Where have you been❓What did you do?
Then Paul whispered, blushed🤭, looked around and suddenly fell from the🪑chair.
– What did you do, what did you do?👦🏻I questioned several times.
I studied Russian, that's what I did – said, Paul👦.

I was shocked🤯. I immediately realized that I had spent the whole summer in vain😧. I messed with the hedgehog🌿, played🏏cricket, and wondered here and there.🤔But Paul, he didn’t sit around ideally💡, no, he worked on himself. He raised his level of education🧮. He studied Russian and now I guess he can relate with Russian pioneers and also read Russian books📚!

I quickly felt that I was dying of envy😞, and afterward, my mom 👱‍♀️said:
“Well done,”
Dad said – Good👦Boy!

– So,🤷why don't you use your knowledge, Paul? – said, mom.
– Why didn't you say “Hello”🤝to us in Russian when you came in?
– Well, you ate the🍉watermelon, why don't you say, "thank you"❓
– 💬Of course, You meant to say “thank you” in Russian, not in English; Right❔, Paul said.

Then, at that point I said:
– Paul, show me how to say "1️⃣,2️⃣,3️⃣" in Russian. What’s the🕖time now? tell me in Russian.
“I haven't studied it yet,”👦Paul said.

– What do you mean❓What have you learned❓ I🗣️shouted.
🗯️Have you learned anything in two months or it’s only the new word you have learned “Russian”?
– I learned, how to speak my name in Russian, said Paul👦.
– Well, how❔ - I said.
– In Russian,👦Paul will be Pavel.
– He laughed happily and added: Okay, tomorrow I'll come to class and asked: "Pavel, Pavel, give me an eraser✏️!" Probably everyone’s mouth will be opened😛, they will not understand anything.🤣HAHAHA…..That will be fun🤪!
