Writing Activity

Dear Martha,
… The manager was talking on the phone. When he saw the robbers he stood up. The cashier was counting some money. When he saw the robber he put his hands up. A young child was sitting on a chair and she started o cry. An old lady who was waiting in the queue near me fainted. The robbers took some money and left. The police arrested them later that day. It was a terrible experience. I hope I won’t have another adventure like that too soon! I’ll finish my letter here so that I can post it today. Please write when you have time.
