Jimmy wells and Bob were fast friend. They lived in New York. Jimmy was 20 year old and Bob was 18 year old. Jimmy was honest and dutiful. He did not want to leave New York. Bob was ambitious and only money was everything for him. One day at 10:00 pm they dined at a restaurant and promised to meet at same place and time after twenty years. Bob went to Chicago and earned more money. Jimmy lived in New York and became a soldier. After 20 year Bob returned/came back from Chicago to meet his old friend. He turned up for their rendezvous. He struck a match-stick to light a cigar. In the light of the match-stick , Jimmy recognised him. Bob was criminal who was wanted by the Chicago police. Jimmy did not understand what to do ? He thought of a way. he told another soldier who wore simple clothes to arrested Bob. Bob was arrested by another soldier. Hence Jimmy completed his duty.

But Jimmy betrayed his friend, didn't he?

So all of my corrections were correct. Except for "20 year old" and "matchstick".

Now there are two questions;

1) Do you know the movie "20 year old Virgin"? Because of the name of the movie I didn't correct "20 year old" as "20 years old". Can you tell me why it is "20 year old Virgin" and not "20 years old Virgin"?

2) Will you, please, differentiate between "match" and "matchstick"

Thanks AS
