The next day Polly watched Owen leave and cried for 3 hours. Mrs. Carter let another
girl do Polly's work during that time. It was terrible the next few weeks. Polly felt
as if there were 7 times as much work. She only went to school once a month for an
hour. Then trudged home to chores. She was getting thinner and paler as ever.
She cried every morning and every night. She thought she might as well die. She
stopped doing chores and Mr. Carter made the basement her permanet room. Every night
her tears froze to her face. She stopped going to school and rarely left the
basement. Sometimes Mrs. Carter forced Mr. Carter to check on her to make sure she
hadn't died. Polly didn't come up for food so at meal times Mrs. Carter knocked on
Polly's door and left food outside. When ever Polly left her room it was rainning so
no one would notice her tears.
