1 "Happy birthday, Grandma," said Jamal. "We are coming to visit you today."
2 His grandmother was happy. She had not seen Jamal for a long time. It was a special day. It was her birthday.
3 Jamal's grandmother lived in another city. It would take several hours to get there. It was too far for Jamal to walk. It was too far to ride a bicycle. The bus did not stop there. Jamal and his mother had to drive to Grandmother's house in the car.
4 Jamal carried a neatly wrapped present to the car. His mother backed the car into the street. She drove several blocks. Soon, she came to an intersection with a red light. His mother stopped the car. The intersection was busy. There was a lot of traffic. A fancy purple truck pulled up beside them. Jamal looked up at the driver. The driver smiled. He waved at Jamal. He honked his horn. The horn was very loud. A taxi driver honked his horn, too. The taxi driver was in a hurry.
5 Jamal heard the sound of an ambulance. It was coming towards them. The cars all had to wait for the ambulance to pass. It drove through the intersection with sirens blaring and lights flashing. The city was a busy place.
