An artist was coming home by train one day. He hadn't much money but was very kind. He gave his last few coins（2） to a beggar, but he saw another one, and forgot that he didn't have any money in his pockets. He asked the man if he liked to have lunch with him, and the beggar, of course, agreed. So they went into a small restaurant and had a good meal.
In the end, the artist could not pay the bill（3）, and the beggar had to do so. The artist felt very sorry for it, so he said to the beggar, "Come home with me in a taxi, my friend. And I'll give you the money for our lunch."
"Oh, no!" the beggar answered quickly. "I had to pay for your lunch, but I'm not going to pay for your taxi home!"
