Read the following extract and rewrite it from the point of view of Orlando:

[You may begin with : When Duke senior and his followers
were taking meal I rushed ...... ]

The Duke senior and his followers were sitting down to a
meal one day when Orlando rushed out from among the trees, his sword in his hand. 'Stop, and eat no more!' he cried. The Duke and his friends asked him what he wanted. 'Food,' said Orlando. 'I am almost dying of hunger. ' 
They asked him to sit down and eat, but he would not do so. He told them that his old servant was in the wood, dying of hunger. 'I will not eat a bite until he has been fed ', Orlando said.
So the good Duke and his followers helped him to bring
Adam to their hiding place, and Orlando and the old man were fed and taken care of. When the Duke learned that Orlando was a son of his old friend Sir Rowland de Boys, he welcomed him gladly to his forest court.
Orlando lived happily with the Duke and his friends, but he had not forgotten the lovely Rosalind. She was always in his thoughts and every day he wrote poetry about her, pinning it on the trees in the forest. 'These trees shall be my books,' he said, 'so that everyone who looks in the forest will be able to read how sweet and good Rosalind is.'
Rosalind and Celia found some of these poems pinned on
the trees. At first they were puzzled, wondering who could have written them; but one day Celia came in from a walk with the news that she had seen Orlando sleeping under a tree, and she and Rosalind guessed that he must be the poet.

Solution

I rushed out from the trees, sword in hand, just as the Duke senior and his followers were sitting doen to a meal. I stopped them from eating and told them that I wanted food as I was almost dying of hunger. The courteously asked me to sit down and eat, but I remembered Adam, and replied that I would not eat until he had been fed. He was in the wood, and the Duke and his servants helped me to bring Adam to their hiding place. They then took care of both of us. The Duke welcomed me when he knew that I was the son of his old friend, Sir Rowland de Boys.

Though I continued to live happily with Duke and his friends. I had not forgotten Rosalind. She was always in my thoughts, and I wrote poetry about her and pinned it on the trees in the forest. They served as books and told everyone one looked in the forest how sweet and good Rosalind was. I later came to know Celia and Rosalind saw some of these poems and were puzzled. Then Celia saw me one day, and she and Rosalind guessed that I was the poet.
