M: That was my last week economic lecture of the week, here is the weekend again.
W: What are you up to tonight? I was just wondering if we could try out the new restaurant on Charles Street, then go on to Queen Victoria for a drink.
M: Sorry, I'm heading home this weekend for my brother's 18th birthday.
W：Oh, that's great.
M: All of my relatives will be there, as well as my brother's horrible friends, of course. Listen, why won't you come along? Mom would be absolutely delightedly to see you again. She's always asking after you.
W: Yes, I'd love to see her too.
M: So, please, do come. It would be great. And besides, with Jonathan's wild game to contend with, I'd really welcome an ally.
W: That sounds tempting, but I won't be ready till 5, as I've got my statistic seminar now. What time are you heading off?
M: well, I'm going to leave right away. However, I can hang around for you if you like. It just means that I'll need to change my ticket.
W: But wouldn't that be too much trouble for you?
M: No, not at all. I'll go to the station first, and see if I can get tickets for us on the 6:30 train. Then, you can join me there. I'll text you when it's done.
W: Brilliant. Are you absolutely positive if it's Ok? I wouldn't want to impose.
M: Don't worry, you are most welcome to join our party, and as I always say "the more, the merrier".
W: Look, I'd better go or I'll be late. So, I'll meet you down at the station around 6.
M: Fine, see you later.
