Catching a Mouse!

In the center of the Underwood house, there was a guest room. This was the room where all the guests stayed. In the west end of the house, there were two bedrooms. Each had a fireplace and a tiled bathroom.

One day, James  and Richard went into the bathroom and found a mouse. James and Richard slammed the bathroom door hastily, so the mouse wouldn’t escape. They picked everything up off the floor and tried to catch the pest on the tiles. It must have taken them a long time to catch that little pest because every time they tried to catch it, they always flinched.  Wouldn’t you flinch if you tried to catch a mouse? Eventually, after a very long time, they caught it!

집 안에 쥐 

언 더우드 집 중심에는 손님들이 묶는 방이 있었고 집 서쪽에는 침실 두개가 이었습니다. 각 침실에는 벽난로와 타일을 깔아 놓은 욕실이 있었습니다. 어느날, 재임스와 리차드는 욕실안에 쥐를 발견했습니다. 그들은 쥐가 도망가지 못 하게 급히 욕실 문을 닫았습니다. 그들은 쥐를 잡을려고 할때마다  쥐를 잡기 전에 계속 머뭇거렸습니다.  여러분들도 쥐를 잡을때 흠칫 놀라지 않겠습니까? 제임스와 리차드는 오랜 시간을 거쳐 마침내 쥐를 잡았습니다!
