Reading practice:

When Bond arrived at the renovated Ch√Ęteau, darkness had descended. He examined the shadowy building. Its ground-floor windows were closed and shuttered. He glanced at his watch. He concluded that there was no time to lose and decided to enter conventionally. He tried the gold-leafed front door but it was locked, barred and bolted. He realized he needed a ladder. He looked around and noticed one on the grass. Noiselessly, he propped it up against the freshly painted balcony and started to climb. He had nearly reached the top when he spotted headlights approaching. A large car pulled in through the gate. By the time it arrived at the door, Bond had already jumped through the balcony window and discovered the cause of his anxiety.
