      Reporter: Sir, you are the paparazzi who took this photo. What (you / do) at the Capulets' mansion?
      Paparazzi: Well, I (cover) the ball for the Verona Mirror, and I was surprised to see Romeo. Later, I (take) a picture of Juliet's parents when Romeo suddenly kissed Juliet's hand. It was so surprising that I followed him. They had stars in their eyes when they (speak) to each other. A few seconds later, I adjusted my camera and they (kiss). It was soooo romantic!
