    random words in sentenses.

    Hi there,

    I am trying to remember words as much as I can.

    here is the words,

    -assumption
    -bruise
    -applaud
    -horrify
    -mortified
    -loan
    -flatter

    A: I have an assumption that your bruise must have made by a punch of someone.
    I will applaud you if you tell me the truth.
    B: Sorry, but I was being horrified I might have punched again if I told the facts to you, teacher.

    A: I will tell what happened between you guys to his parent. they will be mortified.

    B: I hope the mortification will come.
    A: so for now, I can loan you my handkerchief. please focus on your study then. you are the one of the best students in our school
    B: Thank you, I'm flattered..

    Hi!

    1. In the sentence "A: I have an assumption that your bruise must have made by a punch of someone. I will applaud you if you tell me the truth.", the B is the receiver of the punch or the one who has punched and has got the bruise because of his own action?;

    2. The use of tenses in this dialogue is strange because the A can expect that the B describe his feeling of horror in the present tense like that: " Sorry, but I'm being so horrified to be punched again that I can't tell you the facts."
