Question

Read the following extract and convert it into a dialogue between Rosalind and Celia in about 120 words :

[You may begin with: Rosalind: There are many thieves ..... ]

The two girls made their plans. There were many thieves on
the roads in those days, and it was dangerous for rich and beautiful young women to travel alone. So they stained their faces with a brown juice to make them look sunburned, and wore simple country clothes. Rosalind, who was much taller than Celia, dressed herself as a young man, and took the name of Ganymede. Celia decided to call herself Aliena. They took with them a kind old servant called Touchstone, who served as Court jester, or ''Fool'', to Duke Frederick. (A Jester's duty was to keep the court amused with merry jokes and songs, and to make his master laugh when he felt sad or dull.) 
        Touchstone had always been very fond of Celia, and he gladly agreed to accompany her and Rosalind into the Forest of Arden. He still wore his Jester's clothes of red and black, with little bells hanging from his cap; and he was a great comfort to the two lonely girls, making them laugh with his merry jokes, and cheering them when they were tired or frightened.
        As you can imagine, Duke Frederick was very angry when he was told that Celia had gone with Rosalind. He knew how much they had admired the young Orlando de Boys, and he suspected that the two girls had joined the young man and that they had all run away together. 'Send at once.to Oliver's house,' he said angrily. 'and if Orlando is not there, bring his brother to me. I'll make him find him. Everything must be done to bring back these foolish
runaways'.
