Natural Speed with Pauses
Melos was angry. He thought that he could not forgive the bad king. Melos didn’t understand difficult things. Melos was living a happy life in a village. However, Melos could not forgive bad things. Melos came to the town named Syracuse from the village. Melos had no father, mother nor wife. He was living with his sixteen-year-old younger sister. She would get married soon. Melos came to the town to go shopping to prepare for the wedding. While he was walking in the town, Melos thought that the town was strange. The town was much quieter than when he came before. So, Melos asked a person in the town, “Why is the town quiet?”
