She has a big belly. It looks like she is pregnant, but it is not true. The belly is not real. There is no baby. There is cocaine in the belly.

Two kilograms of cocaine are worth $60,000. That is a lot of money. She may be in prison for 8 years.

Difficult words: pregnant (have baby inside), be worth (have price in money), prison (place for criminals).
