Pete was going home from school. The weather was cold and rainy. Pete had no umbrella and no raincoat. When he came home, he fell ill. His mother told him to get into bed. In the evening Pete was running a temperature and had a headache. He had a running nose and a bad cough. His mother gave him hot tea with honey and a medicine for headache.
The next morning Pete had a sore throat and a bad headache. His temperature was thirty seven point six. So he had to stay in bed. His mother called the doctor in.
When the doctor came, he examined Pete’s throat and listened to his heart and lungs. He said that he had the flu and prescribed some medicine.
