Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 

David and Sam were walking together in a forest. They made a pact to look out for each other. They were halfway through the forest when they heard a frightening sound. They turned around and sure enough, there was a bear lumbering slowly towards them. They froze in their tracks. Bears normally leave people alone if they just stay still. However, the bear kept on coming. In a panic, David simply ran off and climbed up a tree. Sam did not have time to do the same, so he just laid down on the ground and stayed still. The bear came to Sam. He went closer to Sam's head and sniffed him. Sam stayed as still as a statue.

After a while, the bear lumbered off. David, who had been watching, climbed down when he was certain that the bear was gone. He went up to Sam, who was walking away. David asked, "I saw the bear go near to your ear. Did he say anything ?" Without looking at David, Sam said, "Yes, he told me not to walk with friend who leave you when there's trouble."
