Write a story in which a pair of sunglasses plays an important part.
Cambridge O Level
It was a hot summer day, and I was on my way to the beach with my friends. I had packed my bag with sunscreen, a towel, and my favorite pair of sunglasses. The sunglasses were a gift from my grandfather and they were special to me because they were the last thing he gave me before he passed away. They were a vintage style, with round frames and dark lenses, and I had never seen another pair like them.

We ended up chatting for an hour, and exchanged contact information. I never saw her again but it was a nice moment and I felt grateful for my sunglasses.
I returned home that day with a new appreciation for my grandfather's sunglasses. They were more than just a pair of shades, they were a reminder of my past, a connection to my loved one, and a way to make new friendships.
