6. Read the story and highlight in yellow the regular verbs you find: It was a rainy night and thunder and lightening crashed. I had spent the weekend in the country with some friends and started back to the city Sunday evening. After an hour, my car suddenly stalled. I had just driven by a house, so I decided to walk back to it. I arrived at the front door, wet and dripping. Before I had even rung the bell, the door opened. A smiling old lady was standing there. She didn't say a word, but took my hand and led me inside . I asked if I could use the phone, but she didn't answer. I looked around for a phone, but couldn't find one. In fact, the whole house looked like it had been transported from the 1880´s . There were no electric lights, just candles. There was no television and no radio. The old lady motioned me to go upstairs and showed me into a bedroom. There was a fire in the fireplace and a comfortable bed heaped with pillows. She let me know with gestures and smiles that I could stay there, and I decided that it would be better than going back out into the stormy night.

I figure a candle had fallen over and caught the carpet on fire. The old lady was nowhere in sight. I called to her and looked in all the upstairs rooms, but I couldn´t find her. Finally ,I had to get out myself, so I opened the window in my bedroom and climbed down the tree next to the house. When I got to the ground I saw flames shoot from the room I had just left. I had escaped just in time. I ran back to my car. It started immediately and I drove off to get help. I stopped and pounded on the door of the first farmhouse I found. When the farmer and his wife came to the door ,I explained about the fire. They looked at me strangely. Then the farmer said , “ There is no house there. That house burned down a hundred and fifty years ago.” Taken from: Teenagers 9. page 38 grupo editorial Norma
