Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Emma, we are going to eat at the school cafeteria, would you like to come?
Thank you for inviting me, Ron. I would like to come, I will just bring
my packed lunch with me.

Really? Do you have a packed lunch? That’s amazing. How I wish I have packed lunch as well.
Yes, every morning my mother prepares my lunch for school. What do you
usually buy from the cafeteria?

Most days, I just buy onigiri. I seldom try other food because I am afraid that they will be too tasteless for me.
I see. If you want, we can share my packed lunch. It is really a relief
for me that we are now allowed to bring food from our homes.

Yes, I think so too. How do you decide what food will you bring for lunch?
Usually, my mother is the one who decides on it. But some days,
I crave some food and my mom prepares it for me.

What do you have for lunch today?
Today, my lunch includes udon and gyudon beef bowl. We also have
a bundle of celery at home so my mom decided that I bring some.

It is really good that you have a packed lunch as some of the food in the cafeteria cost an arm and a leg.
I agree. Also, when my mother cooks my favorite food, I feel like
I’m on cloud nine.
