Q16 - Help!

Watch video


I am staying at the Royal Hotel. This morning I walked past a room on the first floor. Suddenly, I heard a woman's voice.

'Help!' the woman shouted. Then I heard a man's voice.

'Don't move or I'll shoot you!' the man shouted angrily.

'Please don't shoot me,' the woman cried. The man laughed. Then I heard a shot. I knocked at the door loudly.

'Come in', the woman said softly. I rushed into the room.

'What's the matter?' I asked the woman. 'Can I help you?'

'Who are you?' the woman asked angrily.

'I heard a shot', I said. 'Are you all right?'

The woman laughed. 'Of course I'm all right.' She turned to the man.

'Put your gun in your pocket', she said.

'What's happening?' I asked.

'We're not quarrelling', the man said. 'We're actors. We are learning our parts.
