A Little Princess Chapter 14 Summary

What Melchisedec Heard and Saw

  • While Sara is out and about for the day, an odd thing happens—and only Melchisedec is there to witness it.
  • Melchisedec is chilling, just minding his own business when the skylight opens and two people crawl through. Oh no! Could it be thieves?!
  • No, it's just Ram Dass and a young man, the Indian gentleman's secretary.
  • They take a look around at her bed (hard as stone), all her sheets (dingy and worn), and the fireplace (never had a fire in it).
  • Meanwhile, the secretary is furiously scribbling things down.
  • It appears that Ram Dass and the Indian gentleman have decided to bring lots of nice things into Sara's room and redecorate it while she is asleep one night.
  • Well, that seems a little bit ambitious. And creepy.
