My cousin lost his job and his home and he had nowhere to go.

He asked his other relatives for a place to stay but they all said no.

It was wrong of his relatives to turn him away.

When he came to me, I gave him a place to stay.

He's a good man buthe was down on his luck.

Whenthey turned him away, it really sucked.

The way they treated my cousin wasn't at all nice.

When he asked me for a place to stay, he didn't have to ask twice.

I wasn't about to let my friend be thrown out on the street.

I gave him a place to stay until he got back on his feet.
