The American Inheritance

The American Inheritance part thirteen

The American Inheritance 13.1.1   

Ealee and Juan are at home.   
Kirree is upstairs.   

Juan:I told you she was all right.    
Ealee: You weren’t sure.   
Anyway,  something strange      
is happening.   
Juan: You won’t be pleased    
until she’s back in Cleveland.    

Ealee: Maybe not.   
Kirree comes downstairs.   
Kirree: Excuse me, but are you   
on the Internet?   
I’d like to send an e-mail home.    
Ealee: No, we’re not on the Internet. 
Juan: We could go to the library.   
You could send e-mail    
from there.   
Kirree: If that’s too much trouble..   
Juan: No, it’ll be all right.   
We can go shortly.   
Ealee: I’ll come too.   
I have to renew some books.   

The American Inheritance 13.1.2   

At the library, Kirree pays   
to use a computer.   
Librarian: How much time    
do you want? An hour?   
Kirree: Oh, far less than that.   
Is that enough money?   
Librarian: Yes, thanks.   
The computers are over here.   
Kirree sits down       
to send her message.   
Kirree: I hope I’ve got      
the right address.   
Juan: I don’t know anything      
about this stuff.   
Will it be all right if I watch?         
Kirree: This is crazy, but                    
computers make me shy!   
I don’t like people watching me.                            
Juan: Never mind.  I like looking    
at the books.   
Juan and Ealee look at books.     
Lots of books.   
Juan: She’s spending a lot of time   
sending that message.   
Ealee: That’s the way with computers.   
But I can’t believe she’s    
shy at any time!   
At long last, Kirree is finished.   
Kirree: I wasn’t used to the computer.
I’m sorry to put you out,   
but could we go to a bank?   
Ealee: God forbid!
