him. She asked him to bring a bag of smoked longganisa to Mrs. Lianco, a customer in a

his bicycle.
On his way to Mrs. Lianco's house, he passed by his playmates and waved. They waved
back at him.
"Where are you going? Aren't you gonna play with us anymore?" they asked Buboy.
"I have to deliver this longganisa to Mrs. Lianco. She is waiting for it." he replied.
"Can't it wait for a little while? You can hang it on that tree while we play, then deliver it
later on. I'm sure your mother will not know about it." said one of his playmates.
"Sorry but I have to bring this to her first. Promise I'll be back soon." said Buboy as he
continued biking.
Mrs. Lianco was smiling on the doorway when Buboy arrived. She insisted to serve him a
snack before she handed him the payment. And she even gave him a tip for delivering
the order on time!

His playmates asked him not to deliver the longganisa yet.
