Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest. Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been a while since they'd seen each other.

"That's a good idea," her mother said. "We usually visit grandma twice a month. However, because of common tests, you have not visited Grandma this month! She would be upset if she doesn't see you soon!"
["Rate" in the story: 2 visits in ONE month]

12. Little Red Riding Hood knew a secret about her grandmother, just like a famous cartoon character Popeye the sailor, she would gain miraculous amount of strength if she ate spinach. Therefore she had brought along several cans of spinach for her grandmother. She offered the spinach to her grandmother and asked her to eat up quickly, for Little Red Riding Hood knew the wolf would not be gone for long. Her grandmother wolfed down the cans of spinach at an astounding speed of a can per second.
(rate in story: a can per second)

13. After Little Red Riding Hood's Grandmother finished gobbling down the cans of spinach, she broke out of the ropes that the Wolf had tied her up in and went after the wolf. When she found the Wolf, she unleashed her Fists of Fury onto the wolf and started punching him at the rate of 6 punches per second.
(Rate in story? 6 punches per second)

15. Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother drove back to her grandmother's cosy little cabin. On their way back, Little Red Riding Hood caught a glimpse of the speedo-meter and nearly fell out of her chair. "Grandma! You're only supposed to be driving at 50km/h not 120 km/h! You're going to get us killed as well!" She exclaimed, clearly alarmed. :)
