Brian: Hey Rosa. I've heard you are getting transferred to the corporate office?
Rosa: Yeah. That's right. I'll be moving to New York in a couple of weeks.
Brian: That's really good news. From Texas to New York, huh? Life is going to be really exciting for you!
Rosa: I hope so. I'm really excited about moving to New York. I've heard a lot about the city, and I'm ready to explore all its excitement and fun.
Brian: You look really happy. I wish you all the very best. Rosa: Thanks a lot Brian.
Helen: Honey! There's a letter from THY University.
Preity: What does it say, mom?
Helen: It says that your application has been accepted. But you must be there next week!
Preity: Next week?! How will I handle all this in such short notice?
Helen: This is your dream, Preity. You'll have to do it by any means.
Preity: This isn't a weekend getaway. I'll be gone for 3 years. How can I just move to a new city without proper planning?
Helen: Don't worry. I'll talk to your uncle in Washington. He'll make all the arrangements before you get there.
Preity: Well, I don't think I have much choice. Alright. I'll start packing today!
Helen: And let me call your friends over for dinner tomorrow. I'm sure you'd like to spend some quality time with your friends, too.
Preity: Aww... that's so sweet of you, mom! You're great!
Preity: What's up? Why do you look so upset?
Brian: Oh. I got a call from WHT Enterprise. I've been appointed the branch manager of their California branch.
Preity: Really? Congratulations! This is such great news.
Brian: No. Not for me, it isn't. I was aiming for the New York branch. I don't want to move to California.
Preity: Brian, look at the bright side. WHT is a leading name in the software industry. This is a great opportunity for you and your career.
Brian: I truly understand that and, I'm not letting it go. I'm just not willing to relocate to California. I have some personal reasons.
Preity: Well, you should forget about your personal problems and just concentrate on your career.
Brian: Hmm...Thanks for the advice.
Helen: Hey Rosa. How are you doing?
Rosa: I'm good Ms. Helen. Glad to see you here.
Helen: Well, your mom told me you were relocating to New York. I thought it'd nice to meet you before that.
Rosa: Oh. That's really nice of you.
Helen: So how are you feeling? All ready to welcome a new and adventurous life?
Rosa: You're exaggerating a bit. I'm going there because of work. I don't think it's going to be that exciting.
Helen:Oh! You haven't tasted the grapes yet! Are you nervous about moving to a new city altogether?
Rosa: Well... Yes, I am. I'm happy but I'm also feeling a little reluctant.
Helen: It happens. Don't worry. Everything will be just fine. It won't take long ‘till you're fully adjusted to the new environment.
Rosa: I hope so. Thanks for your support, Ms. Helen.
