[In this story, (J) represents a sentence said by José, (H) by Henri and (C) by Claude]
José got up when the telephone rang. He picked up the phone:
(H) Hello, José!
(J) Hello, Henri! I was about to call you.
(H) I just wanted to confirm my arrival in Paris tomorrow.
(J) Perfect. At what time?
(H) I'll be at Montparnasse station at 11:30.
(J) Very well. I'll be there.
(H) Will Claude come too?
(J) No, he has an appointment with a customer and will not be able to attend. He should come to see me here in a few minutes.
(H) OK. Give him my best regards.
(J) Yes, but anyway, we must have a meeting to improve our seminar handouts.
(H) Right. Try to see if we can have lunch together the day after tomorrow.
(J) I'll ask him. Bye and see you soon.
A few seconds after he hung up the phone, the door bell rang. It was Claude.
(J) Hi ! Come in.
(C) Sorry, I'm a bit late.
(J) I just had Henri on the phone: I'll meet him tomorrow. He asked if you could meet us for lunch the day after tomorrow.
(C) No problem. I'll be there.
(J) Great ! I'll tell him right away.
(C) Fine ! Here are the documents you requested. I must go, now. Ciao !
(J) Bye ! See you tomorrow.
Claude went out, took the elevator and walked out of the building.
