Chapter 19

They go straight to the lake. The governess thinks she will have tried to cross the water to where Miss Jessel stood on the other side. Mrs. Grose is terrified but sticks to the company of the governess. At the lake, they see that the boat is missing, and decide to walk around the lake and catch up with Flora. On the other side they see the boat, hidden, and the oars drawn up inside, a difficult feat of strength for such a small girl. Then they see Flora, who smiles and plucks a rather withered fern, as if that is what she came there for. Everyone smiles but keeps an ominous silence. Mrs. Grose breaks it by throwing herself on her knees and hugging Flora. Flora first asks where the governess’ hat and wrap is, then where Miles is. The governess says she will answer if Flora tells her where Miss Jessel is.
