Xiaolin and I made an appointment yesterday, but he did not arrive on time. Why is he late?
Yesterday, I and Xiaolin wanted to go to the library together. We have said, we will meet at nine in the morning. I arrived at 8:55. Because the time has not arrived, so I wait for him. I waited until 9:30, he has not come yet. I am very curious, where is he now? Then I call him. After three calls, he did not pick up. I don't want to wait, so I go to the library myself.
When I arrived at the library, Xiaolin’s phone came. I picked up Xiaolin’s phone. He said, "I'm sorry, I am late. I slept too late yesterday, so I got up very late today." I replied: "It doesn't matter, but I have already arrived at the library. Can you come here?" He replied: "Good! We meet in the library then!"
