Writing exercise

Original:

Last night I watched one episode of Friends about New Year Party. The six friends made a pact that they wouldn’t bring their boyfriend at the party and just had dinner together themselves.

Ross got a monkey, Marcel from his colleague. Phoebe met one scientist, David when she was singing in Central Perk Cafe and they started dating later. New Year was coming and the six friends began to prepare party things at Monica’s apartment. During their talking they knew they might not keep their pact . Rachel told them her boyfriend went out of town but would try to come back to celebrate New Year with her. Monica, Phoebe, Chandler and Joey would also bring somebody to the Party.

Then each of them forgot the pact and brought his or her friend at the party. But Ross came with Marcel and he hated it because everyone broke their pact. Phoebe split up with her boyfriend as he was going to Minsk. Rachel’s boyfriend missed the plane and she felt bad for it.

The countdown to New Year started, they forgot all their troubles but just enjoyed the festival at that moment.
