Writing

Original:

I have a friend and her name is Yuki.

Last week was her birthday, so we had a birthday party for she in Hangzhou.
We borrowed a room and decorated it one day ahead of schedule. We prepared many balloons and a big surprise.

Yuki arrived in Hangzhou in 7pm. She took an hour’s train from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station to Hangzhou Station. Then we took her directly back to the house. We let her close eyes and opened the door for her. When she saw everything in the room, she wept with joy. We took out the birthday cake and sang the birthday song for her together. We had a pleasant evening together.

After we had a dinner, we watched a film together. The film name is The Mist.
I thought The Mist was a very good film. I enjoyed this film immensely. The Mist tell about that people trapped in supermarkets in the unknown fog and done a lot to survive, such as fighting monsters, taking his own life and so on. The film was very exciting and the ending was very unexpected.
