[Example Passage]
On Monday morning Jasmine got on the bus like always. She found an empity seat, sat down and started browsing through the newspaper. One of the article was about a hundred-year old tree being cut down next week. People from greenpeace were furious. Jasmine turned the page. The next article she noticed was about a family trying to sort out if the youngest son was actually theirs. It was said that the nurses in the labour ward might have a mistake. The last article jasmine read before her stop was about the importance of putting by money for children's education. While Jasmine was reading it, she realized she had missed her stop.
