down the hill, walking as swiftly as before. �She said some queer things,” said Dick, staring after her. �Was that a silly village-tale she told us - or do you suppose there’s something in it, Ju?” �Oh - a village tale of course!” said Julian, sensing that Anne hadn’t liked it much. �What a strange family - a shepherd who spends all his time on the hills - a child who wanders about the countryside with a lamb and a dog - and a mother who stops and tells such angry tales to strangers!” �It’s

tonight,” said Dick, remembering. �I’ve a good mind to go and look out of the window that faces the hill opposite, and see if it’s there again.” He leapt out of his bunk and ran to the window. At once he gave a loud cry. �Come and look! Whew! Just come and look!” All the others, Timmy as well, rushed to the window at once, Timmy standing on his hind legs to see. Certainly there was something queer to look at! Over the hill opposite hung a mist - a curious glowing mist, that stood out in the

Anne cried out at once, �That may be Morgan coming back! Hide Aily, for goodness sake - or he’ll drag her out of here and take her back with him! Quick - where shall we hide her?”

The old lady took them into a big warm living-room and made them sit down. �What a journey for you!” she said. �You look worn out and poorly. It’s late you are, too, and I’d a good tea laid for you.
