THE TRICK (2)
The man with the beard smiled to himself. This was perfect!Right now
he had two men outside the hotel. He had two men inside the entrance, two on
the stairs. And he was sure to make a lot of money.
The moment he entered the room, Bill fixed the chain across the door.
Then quickly and quietly he pushed a table against the door. Someone knocked
at the door and he felt afraid for a moment. Just then the telephone began to ring.
One hour later, Mick was already at the airport waiting to get on the air
craft to Japan. This was a strange adventure indeed! He had never been to
Japan before, but now he had the chance. He put his hand inside his case and
felt the flat box containing the computer program—it was safe with him. He
wondered whether Bill had managed to escape. And what a curious hotel it
was! It was perfect for a trick like this.
The two men forced open the door of Room 411, broke off the chain and
pushed the table to one side. They found themselves next to a bathroom at the
bottom of a flight of twelve stairs. They ran up the stairs /into/ the room. The
room was empty. Was this a trick?There was nowhere to hide. The window was
open but it was not possible to climb out of the window because it was too high.
They turned round and stood in the middle of the room, completely astonished.
Twelve more steps led up to another door, on the other side of which was Room
511. They looked at each other and shook their heads. The man with the beard
was going to be very unhappy.
