Helen and Alice in the sitting room
Episode 104: A mini-break*
Alice: Helen! I've got great news for us!
Helen: What is it? Is there another letter from Michal? Let me see!
Alice: No, forget Michal! It's something much better! And anyway, I said 'great news for us'. So, do you remember my friend Gabrielle?
Helen: The one who lives in Paris?
Alice: Right! Well, she's invited us over there for a visit. So, what do you say?
Helen: Oh, I don't know. I'm not sure Alice.
Alice: Come on Helen! It'll be good for you, and it'll stop you moping over Michal and his silly letter! It's Paris, the Champs Élysées, the Eiffel Tower!
Helen: Well, I do need to unwind a little bit and a mini-break would be fun but I don't know.
