It was very unhappy and helpless situation for Rita. She and her family very moving far, far away from the busy city. 'We're off to the country!' her father used to cheer, and he was very much looking forward to it, for he had just got a promotion in his job. That was exactly the reason why they were shifting. Rita didn't know anything about the country, but she was sure that it was no match for her beautiful city with plenty of friends and places. Her mother, who loved nature, wouldn't stop telling her about the plants, sun, noise-free and pollution-free country that they were going to. 'We'll leave next week ' her mom said. 'The packing is almost done. The first thing we'll do is grow a garden!'


This was all greatly disliked by Rita. Since she hardly knew about the country, she decided to pay her neighbor a visit. She walked outside her house and went two blocks ahead. She knocked on the door, and when it opened, she gave a weak smile. Miss Bina, the old woman exclaimed with joy on seeing her, and signaled her to come in. She walked slowly towards her rocking chair and sat down. She adjusted her glasses to get a closer look at Rita. 'How are you, my dear? You don't seem very happy?' 'I am not' Rita replied, unable to prevent herself from acting happy anymore. 'I'm moving to the country'. Miss Bina frowned. 'I'll miss you. You've come here to say goodbye, I suppose? Oh well, I'll have to give you a gift so that you'll remember me whenever you see it. Would you like a-' 'It's not that' Rita said, trying to smile. 'We're only leaving next week. I came here to read country-life books from your library'.


Miss Bina nodded. Just as Rita opened the door to the library room, Miss Bina suddenly gasped, startling Rita. 'What is it, Miss Bina? Do you need any help?' She asked. 'It's not that, my dear. I just realized something.....you don't want to go to the country, you say?' Rita nodded vigorously. 'But I have to. My dad got a job there'. 'Well, I just have the thing that'll help you and your family to stay in the city and be happy. But it'll be extremely dangerous.......and rather surprising too'.
