"Listen attentively guys, I'm about to give my speech..."
"First of all..."
"We have to applause for these brave kids who fought with their illness, let's bring them the positiveness"
"So, we shall smile for them!"
"Hmmm? Am I right?"
Ju (excited):"Why not all of us join in the marathon? Maybe I can create another race of 42KM, you all will support me right? Sports for life and for the kids!"
Guy (smiles slowly faded):" 42KM..."

Ju:"You know I've been thinking..."

Ju:"Is 42KM too easy for you? Or we try to make it a 84KM?"

Ju:"so how's that?"
Guys *sweat*

Guy (I have to stay calm and look professional *wear specs*) : "Well Justine, I think 10.5KM is good enough for us to keep to the schedule)

Ju:"OH! I totally forgot that we have to take time into consideration..."
JU:"My bad! Sorry ah...ok, we'll stick to the original plan"
The guys:" Oh yes yes, that's right! Haha!"
Ju: "Hehehehehe"
