Slow Speed with Pauses
Natural Speed with Pauses
They were very happy. However, the man didn’t have money. Once in a while, there were days when they could not eat meals. Then, the woman said, “I can make beautiful cloth. How about selling the cloth in a town?” When the woman made the cloth, the man was surprised because it was the most beautiful cloth that he had ever seen. The man went to the town quickly. When the man arrived at the town, he asked a person in a shop, “How much can I sell this cloth for?” Then, the person in the shop was also surprised, “I have never seen such beautiful cloth. Well, I will pay one million yen for this.” The man was surprised again because he usually sold a tree for 10.000 yen.
