David, Andrew, and Levi were sitting in the common area playing video games, as they normally would. They didn’t talk much; they were just enjoying themselves and each other’s company. The three boys were playing several classic video games and drinking grape soda for an hour and thirty minutes.
Until David’s phone rang.
The boy quickly got up and ran toward his phone. Andrew and Levi, however, were still playing games. David found his phone on the nearby coffee table and quickly answered it without looking at his caller ID.
“Hello?” David answered on his end.
“Hi, David! It’s Brody,” the voice on the other end answered back.
“Hey, Brody! What’s up?”
“Not much. How are you?”
“Andrew, Levi, and I are playing video games. What are you up to?” David asked.
“Just woke up, and it’s already noon,” Brody replied plainly.
“What are you going to do today?”
“I’m practicing tennis with John Garfield. He and his family are coming to Crown Point later this afternoon.”
“We’re going to, hopefully, practice tennis soon.”
“Hopefully you can.”
Andrew and Levi looked at David and realized that he was talking on the phone with his younger brother. After a few minutes, David put his phone on speaker, so that all three boys could talk to Brody. All four boys met at Andrew’s brother’s best friend’s birthday party, and they knew that they were going to be close friends.
“Hi, Brody!” Levi shouted.
“Hey,” Brody replied somewhat sleepily. Since he just got out of bed, he would probably spend some time waking up. Brody is not a morning person in the slightest.
“What’s up, Brody?!” Andrew shouted.
“Hi. So, I heard that you are planning to have your own tennis practice soon,” Brody remarked.
“Hopefully in a few days.”
“I can’t wait.”
