Fighting - example

Two lots of neighbours, who lived side-by-side in semi-detached houses, were always fighting. The boy from one house was forever kicking his ball over the fence into the neighbour’s garden and when he went to retrieve it, he would trample all over the beautiful flowers and destroy them. Then he would grab for the ball, run off and escape. Well, the neighbour caught him and complained about him being to blame. But the boy's mother defended her son saying what a good boy he was. So the neighbours went on fighting.
