English

Gundega is at the police station. She is scared. The policeman asks a lot of questions. Where did Gundega get the chair? Gundega found a chair in the attic. It was among her husband’s belongings. And where did her husband get that chair? She doesn’t know. That was a long time ago – Gundega’s husband died five years ago. The policeman says that he will do an examination of the chair.

“How long will it be?” asks Gundega. The policeman says that he’ll have to see, maybe a few hours, maybe a few days. Gundega should wait here until then.
