I see them here now.
I don't see you too often now.
The children saw you there yesterday.
Did you see her here ?

You saw them a long time ago.

Did you see myself and Juan
up on the tree in the garden, mummy ?
I saw you, indeed.
I hope daddy didn't see you.
Why, mummy ?
Because he doesn't like little children
going up on that tree.
I don't think he saw us anyway.

That's good.
But I don't like you going up on that tree either.

Daddy's coming now. Don't tell him.
