From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
As soon as the Governess is left alone with Miles, she misses her friend, Mrs. Grose. However, left in charge, she does her best to make everything run smoothly.
The Governess doesn't see Miles until dinner; after the departure of his sister and Mrs. Grose, he spent the day on his own.
The Governess struggles to act natural even in these odd circumstances. She and Miles discuss Flora's health; they eat a polite meal together while the maid is around, but, as soon as she leaves, he states, rather menacingly, that they're alone.
