A special lunch
Dotty came to meet the editor Jerry Green in his London office. He praised her work and __offered__ to publish her stories in his magazine. After discussing the contract Jerry invited Dotty for lunch. It was her first visit to a big city, so the young lady was really excited.
A shiny black cab stopped next to the beautiful building and Jerry took Dotty into the restaurant. A smart waiter in a black suit took their coats and escorted them to a table by the window.
“Please order __whatever__ you like,” Jerry told her as the waiter handed her a menu, and Dotty got lost. She had been __brought__ up on very plain food and everything on the menu looked so fancy and expensive. Jerry saw her discomfort. __Therefore__, he asked after a while if he could order for her. Dotty gratefully agreed. The meal was like nothing she had ever eaten before, and as one delicious course followed another she began to relax a little as she found that Jerry was good company and very easy to talk to. He __reminded__ Dotty of her elder brother.
“Thank you so much for a lovely day and a lovely meal,” Dotty said when the lunch was over. She was so full that she was sure she wouldn’t be able to eat another thing for at least a month.
“It was my pleasure,” he assured her. “I’ve really enjoyed today. And I hope this will be the start of a long working relationship. I’ll be __in__ touch soon.” Then she __said__ goodbye and caught a cab to the railway station. It had been a truly unforgettable day.
