Answer for C8

I usually go to school by bicycle.  When I get to the school I usually put my bike under a tree in the yard.  Today after I went to the library it was raining , so when I went to class I had to put my bike under the stairs.  After class, I went out to the stairs but I didn't see my bike there (any more).  I went out to the yard and looked everywhere but still didn't see it.  I had no choice but to walk home.  On the way home I stopped by a police station to report losing my bicycle, hoping they would help me find it.  Seeing me come in, a policeman asked:

  • What's the matter?
  • I lost my bicycle, I answered.
  • Really? When did you lose it?
  • Maybe about an hour ago, after my class.
  • Where did you put it?
  • I parked it at school.  I usually put it under a tree in the school yard, but today I put it under the stairs because it was raining.
  • Before going to class did you go anywhere?
  • Yes, before going to class I went to the library.
  • And before going to the library what did you do?
  • Before going to the library I was at home.

 

The policeman conscientiously wrote down my answers on a sheet of paper, at the same time murmuring:
  • After being at home he went to the library.  After going to the library he went to class.  Before going to class he put his bicycle under the stairs.  After class he couldn't find his bicycle (he said he lost his bicycle). 
Then suddenly the policeman asked me:
  • So, after losing your bicycle, did you see it anywhere? 
Before I could understand his question in order to answer, he continued:
  • When you find the bicycle somewhere, remember to report to us right away, all right?
