6 Only when footsteps or voices were heard did they look at one another, the princess anxious and inquiring, the nurse encouraging.
7 Just as he went in he saw that the nurse was hiding something from him with a scared look and that Princess Mary was no longer by the cot.
8 Princess Mary shuddered; her nurse, putting down the stocking she was knitting, went to the window and leaning out tried to catch the open casement.
