It was raining when Tom was on his way home. He opened his umbrella and walked faster. Suddenly he saw an old woman staggering forward with a stick in her hand. She hadn't got an umbrella with her and was wet all over. Tom went up to her and tried to share his umbrella with her. But the old woman was tall and he was too short to hold it high enough. Then he saw the old woman's stick and a good idea came to him. He tried hard to tie the stick to the handle of the umbrella. Then the umbrella was long enough for both of them. The old woman thanked him again and again. Then they went on walking home.
