Reading practice
When Bond arrived[d] at the renovated[Id] Château, darkness had descended[Id]. He examined[d] the shadowy building. Its ground-floor windows were closed[d] and shuttered[d]. He glanced[t] at his watch. He concluded[Id] that there was no time to lose and decided[Id] to enter. He tried[d] the gold-leafed[t] front door but it was locked[t], barred[d] and bolted[Id]. He realized[d] he needed[Id] a ladder. He looked[t] around and noticed[t] one on the grass. Noiselessly, he propped[t] it up against the freshly-painted[Id] balcony and started[Id] to climb. He had nearly reached[t] the top when he spotted[Id] headlights approaching. A large car pulled[d] in through the gate. By the time it arrived[d] at the door, Bond had already jumped[t] through the balcony window and discovered[d] the cause of his anxiety.
