The Borrowers Chapter 13 Summary
Arrietty is bent on seeing the boy to find out what happened, and whether her uncle is all right. This girl most definitely does not want to be the last of the
Homily mentions in an offhand kind of way that Pod has gone borrowing, and won't be back for an hour and a half.
Wait a chicken pickin' minute. A whole hour and a half with the gates left open?
Arrietty quickly brightens up and tells her mother that she is "going to the store room" for a bit, but she really makes a beeline for upstairs.
Along her way to the boy's bedroom, she hears her father talking with Great-Aunt Sophy—a voice she likes very much because it is as comforting and steady as the sound of the clock in the hall.
She runs into the boy's bedroom and finds out that not only has the boy delivered the letter, but he has also brought it back with a reply message from her uncle!
Man, this is pretty speedy messaging, for pre-texting days.
The boy is helping her read her uncle's atrocious spelling in the letter, which says to "tell your Aunt Lupy to come home," when they are spotted—by Arrietty's father, Pod.
Boy is Arrietty ever in trouble now.
