Slow Speed with Pauses
Natural Speed with Pauses
Then, the old man took something out. “Jack, I will give you this bean in exchange for your cow. This is a magic bean and it will grow into a beanstalk that touches the sky for a day.” “Okay.” Jack exchanged the cow for the bean and went home. When Jack arrived at his house, his mother asked, “How much did you sell the cow for?” “I exchanged the cow for this magic bean.” Jack told his mother about the bean and then she started getting angry. “How foolish! Why did you exchange our important cow for such a bean!?” His mother took the bean and tossed it out the window to the outside.
