I: Yes, I am alone
J: Where are you?
I: I’m near you
J: What are you doing?
I: I am walking, to the house, the house with many windows
J: Do you go inside?
I: I’m almost there. I see the door, there is a number. Number IV. I knock the door. I look through a window. It is dark
J: Do you go inside?
I: The door is closed. I ring the bell. It rings inside. Nobody answers
J: Is it dark inside?
I: Yes.
J: Where are you?
I: I am here, on this narrow path
J: What about the house?
I: I am now walking beside the lake, behind the house
J: Can you see the windows of the house?
I: I see trees
J: Can you see anyone?
I: There is nobody
J: What is the time?
I: I don´t know. It is late.
J: What can you see now?
I: I see the house, and the windows. Are you near?
J: Yes, I am near
I: Can you see the door?
J: I can see it.
I: Don’t you want to ring again?
