"Do you ask questions to strangers often child" The man says with a sigh.
"Usually, sometimes father gets upset at me for such questions" the boy says in a mischievous voice.
"My name is none of your concern child" says the man.
"Oh yes it is" the child says as he jumps down the high perch in front of the man"
"You are quite the child to wish to know such unneeded answers" The man says as he tries to brush pass the child.
The child rebounds and jumps in front of the man once again.
"You are persistent child and for that I think I would like to talk to you" the man motions over a siting area on the side of the walkway.The child follows without a second thought.
