    Tim, you are the last person I would expected a proposal of this kind

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?


    After the proposal of the principal to the teacher, she reacted immediately.


    -"Tim, you are the last person I would expected a proposal of this kind. I am deeply disappointed of you.", she said.

    -"Kelly, I did not, I really not, I", Tim tried to reply.


    After the attempt to answer, Kelly began to laugh.

    -"Tim, ake it easy, it was a joke. I really appreciate this opportunity. Please give me some time to think about it."

    -"Of course, no problem."


    Thanks.

    The first sentence is okay. For the second sentence, try:

    "Tim, you are the last person in the world I would have expected a proposal of that kind from. I am deeply disappointed in you," she said.

    Next paragraph. Perhaps:

    "Kelly, I did not, I did not, I really did not -- ," Tim stuttered.

    And:

    "Kelly laughed."

    That's the way to do that.
