Chapter 2: A strange place
One day I (to walk)
down the countryside and (to get)
to an interesting stone-statue. It looked like a white round circle with a circular hole in the middle, more or less like a millstone. Just this wouldn’t have been strange, but I (to find)
it in the middle of a small forest, out of view of all the other things, and while all the rest looked old and shabby this stone seemed to be brand-new and was shining like a bright lamp in a dark place. Why (to have)
someone put it here? And why (question form /the birds / not / to sing)
around this place?
Back at the hotel I (to ask)
the Weeds for the story of the stone statue. But after some unexpected moments of cold silence and puzzled looks Mr Weeds only (to tell)
me that they (not/to know)
anything about that mysterious thing and it must have been placed there a long time before they had arrived in town. The cold atmosphere between the Weeds and me stayed for the whole evening, and as I didn’t know what I had done wrong I (to go)
to bed early.
