I’ve loved my mother’s desk since I was just tall enough to see above the top of it as mother sat doing letters. Standing by her chair, looking at the ink bottle, p ens, and white paper, I decided that the act of writing must be the more wonderful t hing in the world. Years later, during her final illness, mother kept different things f or my sister and brother. “But the desk,” she’d said again, “it’s for Elizabeth. ”I nev er saw her angry, never saw her cry. I knew she loved me; she showed it in action. But as a young girl, I wanted heart-to-heart talks between mother and daughter. The y never happened. And a gulf opened between us. I was “too emotional(易动感情 的)”. But she lived “on the surface”. As years passed I had my own family. I loved my mother and thanked her for our happy family. I wrote to her in careful words and asked her to let me know in any way she chose that she did forgiveme. I poste d the letter and waited for her answer. None came. My hope turned to disappointme nt, then little interest and, finally, peace— it seemed that nothing happened. I could n’t be sure that the letter had even got to mother. I only knew that I had written it, and I could stop trying to make her into someone she was not. Now the present of her desk told, as she’d never been able to, that she was pleased that writing was m y chosen work. I cleaned the desk carefully and found some papers inside —a photo of my father and a one-page letter, folded and refolded many times. Give me an an swer, my letter asks, in any way you choose. Mother, you always chose the act that speaks louder than words. 1. The writer began to love her mother’s desk ______. A. after Mother died C. when she was a child B. before she became a writer D. when Mother gave it to her

2. The passage shows that ______. A. mother was cold on the surface but kind in her heart to her daughter B. mother was too serious about everything her daughter had done C. mother cared much about her daughter in words D. mother wrote to her daughter in careful words 3. The word “gulf” in the passage means ______. A. deep understanding between the old and the young B. different ideas between the mother and the daughter C. free talks between mother and daughter D. part of the sea going far in land 4. What did mother do with her daughter’s letter asking forgiveness? A. She had never received the letter.BFor years, she often talked about the letter C. She didn’t forgive her daughter at all in all her life. D. She read the letter again and again till she died.

I worked for a short time as a cashier(出纳员) at a restaurant a fe w months ago. I also helped to clean up the tables when it was very bu sy. One night, just before Christmas, I found a large black wallet on the floor near one of the tables. I guessed I should check it to find out wh o was the owner, but I was very busy at the time. And I imagined that if there was something valuable(有价值的) in the wallet, the owner wou ld be back. Sure enough, an hour later a man came up to the counter a nd asked if anyone had found a wallet.
