1 Mary had been rather tired of the old ones.
2 Mary knew the fair young man who looked like a boy.
3 Mary alternately cried and slept through the hours.
4 "I am Mary Lennox," the little girl said, drawing herself up stiffly.
5 Mary even thought she saw him wink his eyes as if to wink tears away.
6 Mary was standing in the middle of the nursery when they opened the door a few minutes later.
7 After that, appalling things happened, and the mysteriousness of the morning was explained to Mary.
8 So if Mary had not chosen to really want to know how to read books she would never have learned her letters at all.
9 During the confusion and bewilderment of the second day Mary hid herself in the nursery and was forgotten by everyone.
10 Mary hated their untidy bungalow and was so disagreeable to them that after the first day or two nobody would play with her.
11 When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen.
12 Nothing was done in its regular order and several of the native servants seemed missing, while those whom Mary saw slunk or hurried about with ashy and scared faces.
13 At that very moment such a loud sound of wailing broke out from the servants' quarters that she clutched the young man's arm, and Mary stood shivering from head to foot.
14 Mary had liked to look at her mother from a distance and she had thought her very pretty, but as she knew very little of her she could scarcely have been expected to love her or to miss her very much when she was gone.
15 She had not wanted a little girl at all, and when Mary was born she handed her over to the care of an Ayah, who was made to understand that if she wished to please the Mem Sahib she must keep the child out of sight as much as possible.
16 The woman looked frightened, but she only stammered that the Ayah could not come and when Mary threw herself into a passion and beat and kicked her, she looked only more frightened and repeated that it was not possible for the Ayah to come to Missie Sahib.
17 It was in that strange and sudden way that Mary found out that she had neither father nor mother left; that they had died and been carried away in the night, and that the few native servants who had not died also had left the house as quickly as they could get out of it, none of them even remembering that there was a Missie Sahib.
