The Woman in Black Chapter 6 Summary
The Sound of a Pony and Trap
As Arthur walks back along the causeway, the water starts to seep in.
And… here comes the fog. Even better.
He can't see the town, and he can't see Eel Marsh House either.
Okay, this really isn't looking good.
But he walks on, sticking to his path and sure that it'll get him to the village in no time. Sure it will.
Soon, he hears the clop-clop of a pony and trap. At first he thinks it's Keckwick coming to get him, but then he hears some more disturbing noises.
Like the sound of sucking and a terrified sobbing, almost as though a pony and trap has been dragged into the mud and a child is dying.
Arthur freaks, but there's nothing he can do—he's in the middle of nowhere.
As the water starts to come up, Arthur makes his way back toward the house and to safety.
Once inside, he just sits there and cries helplessly. Poor sad Arthur.
Then he drinks some brandy, which solves all of his problems. (Just kidding!)
He wanders through the house and tries to get into one locked door, but can't.
We're guess that's going to come back to haunt him (no pun intended).
Then he lies down on a sofa.
Ding ding! Arthur hears a bell and realizes that he's fallen asleep, but that someone's arrived—who's
It's Keckwick here to get him, even though it's 2 a.m. What a nice guy.
Arthur asks him how he got out, since he thought Keckwick was the one trapped in the marsh. Keckwick doesn't say anything.
They ride back in silence and Arthur goes to sleep at the hotel, a bit shaken from his whole experience.
Okay, maybe more than a bit.
