आप से ख़श था। वह आधा घंटा देरी से आया। मैं उसका बगीचे में इतंजार कर रहा था। मौसम सुहावना था। उसने कहा, “तुम्हारी मशीन देखने में सुन्दर है। वह कैसे चलती है ?”

मैंने कहा, “ऐसा मत करो, तुम उसे नुकसान पहुंचा दोगे।”

उसने कहा, “आगे का पहिया हिलता है।”
मैंने कहा, अगर तुम इसे न हिलाओ तो वह नही हिलता।” वह बिल्कुल नहीं हिलता था, वास्तव में कुछ भी हिलने जैसी चीज न थी।

अब वह चेन के बारे में देखेगा। उसने उसे तब तक कसा जब तक वह हिलनी बंद नहीं हो गई. आगे उसने उसे इतना ढीला कर दिया जैसे कि पहले से दुगनी ढीली हो गई। तब उसने कहा कि हमें अगला पहिया सही जगह वापस रखने के बारे में सोचना चाहिए।

13. I held ………………….. changed places. At length ……………………… out laughing.

ऐसा लगा जैसे कि साइकिल भी बहुत सहन कर चुकी थी। यह कहना मुश्किल था कि ज्यादा सजा किसे मिली थी। मैं उसे पिछवाड़े में रसोई में ले गया, जहाँ तक हो सकता था उसने अपने आप को साफ किया। तब मैंने उसे घर भेज दिया।
