Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with a question. The question is as following, "Create a paraphrase of the following sentence from “The Cold Equations”: "Our time is up, Gerry—I have to go, now. Good—" Her voice broke in mid-word and her mouth tried to twist into crying." I'm supposed to paraphrase this sentence, and even though I know how to do so with other sentences, this sentence seems far too simplistic and straightforward to be paraphrased, otherwise it would essentially just be dumbing the phrase down. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Zenshiru

    "We're out of time, Gerry. I need to leave. Good-" Her voice cracked midsentence and her mouth trembled as she began to cry."

    I got $1400 in the bank. I need buy some time travel equipment for the soul purpose of being all these scrubs on open study, in answering the question first.
