Read the following extract and extend it by adding an imaginary paragraph of your own in about 120 words :
“But your father came looking for you. Didn’t you get in touch with him?” said my mother.
“My father and I were never very close. Mother died when I was very young, and the only relative I had was a cousin in West Africa. So that’s where I went — Sierra Leone!” said Mrs Green.
“How romantic!” said my mother.
“It’s hot and steamy in Sierra Leone,” said Mrs Green. “But the climate does wonders for your libido. I lived with a wonderful black man for several years.”
“What happened to him?” I asked.
“He was killed in a tribal war,” said Mrs Green without any show of emotion. “It was a long time ago.”
“And that skeleton,” I asked. “What about the skeleton in the cupboard?”
They were much confusions about Skeletons. Suddenly Mrs. Green enquired about Skeleton. Her question and act about Skeleton is in such a way that as to make it appear that something is the case when in fact it is not she didn’t know anything. Well, I tried to take her mind back to the time she was living here and I realised that she knew something, but wouldn't tell us. Suddenly, Mrs Green became very friendly and narrated an incident, which I am sure was untrue. She said that years ago while she lived at the hotel, she had heard a noise in the middle of the night. She quickly dressed and went to investigate, but before she could reach the landing she saw a man drag, somebody along the staircase and then she heard a door bang. She got frightened and rushed back to her room. Next morning, many guests left the hotel and a few more came. So she forgot the incident. “That”, she said, “must have been the skeleton of the ‘body’ shoved in the cupboard.”
