afternoon Officer Vinnie.
Vinnie---Hi Lu Chen.
Lu Chen---What brings you here?
VINNY--- Ah, just wanted
to be sure everything is alright.
Lu Chen—Why is something the matter?
Good afternoon, Lu Chen. Is my order ready?
Lu Chen—Good afternoon to you, Martha Jones and
yes it is ready.
Martha---Oh hi there officer Vinnie. Am I
glad to see you! I have a question for you.
Vinnie---What might that be Martha?
Martha--- Well, Spike came home all
excited about you being a hero!
Lu Chen---You, a hero?
Vinnie---Ah man, it is nothing…
Martha----- Well, I haven’t had time to read
the paper or watch TV. But, he came home and said you were just like Shadmego in the bible.
Vinnie---I don’t believe I am familiar with
Lu Chen---What happened?
Martha---Well, it took me a few minutes to

Abednego. He said you must have had an angel watching over you like he
Lu Chen---An angel? What?
Vinnie---Well, I'm not sure about an

Lu Chen---Will someone please tell me what’s
Vinnie---Well, I went
pass the Elmer house early this morning and I saw smoke and flames in
the back of the house.
Lu Chen---Oh my goodness! What happened?
Vinnie--- Well, I called the fire department
and said a prayer. Then I had to break a window to get into the house. Just as
I got to the top of the stairs, Mr. Elmer came out and I helped him, his wife
and the kids down the stairs. I grabbed all the coats and boots under the coat
rack. I got every one into my car just as the fire department got there.
MARTHA---It was a good thing that God sent
you there just at the right time.
Vinnie---It’s too bad, the house was damaged
Lu Chen---My goodness, that’s terrible!
Martha---I am sure God did send an angel to
look over everyone, and I’m glad to know that Spike does listen in
Children’s Church, even if he does get them a little mixed up.
Martha---Well, I need to get home now.
LU CHEN---Here you go Mrs. Jones. Have a nice
Vinnie---It was nice to see you again
Martha. Tell Spike I said ‘hello’.
LU CHEN—Bye now…
Vinnie---Well, I need
to get back to my rounds. Bye, bye!
