One afternoon, a big wolf (wait)  in a dark forest for a little girl to come along carrying a basket of food to her grandmother.

When the little girl (open)  the door of her grandmother's house, she (see)  that there was somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown on. She (approach)  no nearer than twenty-five feet from the bed when she (see)  that it was not her  grandmother but the wolf , for even in a nightcap a wolf does not look like anybody's grandmother. So the little girl (take)  an automatic pistol out of her basket and (shoot)  the wolf dead.
