Part 4

 

A

1."At this moment," I said, "all the witches are down on the Sunshine Terrace having tea with the Manager.

2.The Grand High Witch probably won't be back until six o'clock or just before.

3.That's when she's going to dish out supplies of that foul formula to the ancient ones who are too old to climb trees after gruntles' eggs."

4."And what if you did manage to get into her room?" my grandmother said.

5."What then?""Then I should try to find the place where she keeps her supply of Delayed Action Mouse-Maker,and if I succeeded then I would steal one bottle of it and bring it back here."

 

B

1."Could you carry it?""I think so," I said."It's a very small bottle."

2."I'm frightened of that stuff," my grandmother said.

3."What would you do with it if you did manage to get it?"

4."One bottle is enough for five hundred people," I said.

5."That would give each and every witch down there a double dose at least.

 

C

1.We could turn them all into mice."

2.My grandmother jumped about an inch in the air.

3.We were out on my balcony and there was a drop of about a million feet below us and I very nearly bounced out of her hand over the railings when she jumped.

4."Be careful with me, Grandmamma," I said.

5."What an idea!" she cried."It's fantastic! It's tremendous! You're a genius, my darling!"

 

D

1."Wouldn't it be something?" I said.

2."Wouldn't that really be something?"

3."We'd get rid of every witch in England in one swoop!" she cried.

4."And The Grand High Witch into the bargain!""We've got to try it," I said.

5."Listen," she said, nearly dropping me over the balcony once again in her excitement.

6."If we brought this off, it would be the greatest triumph in the whole history of witchery!"

7."There's a lot of work to do," I said.

 

E

1."Of course there's a lot of work to do," she said.

2."Just for a start, supposing you did manage to get hold of one of those bottles, how would you get it into their food?"

3."We'll work that out later," I said."Let's try to get the stuff first.

4.How can we find out for sure if that's her room just below us?"

5."We shall check it out immediately!" my grandmother cried.

 

F

1."Come along! There's not a second to waste!"

2.Carrying me in one hand, she went bustling out of the bedroom and along the corridor, banging her stick on the carpet with each step she took.

3.We went down the stairs one flight to the fourth floor.

4.The bedrooms on either side of the corridor had their numbers painted on the doors in gold.

5."Here it is!" my grandmother cried."Number 454." She tried the door.It was locked of course.

 

G

1.She looked up and down the long empty hotel corridor.

2."I do believe you're right," she said.

3."This room is almost certainly directly below yours."

4.She marched back along the corridor, counting the number of doors from The Grand High Witch's room to the staircase.

5.There were six.She climbed back up to the fifth floor and repeated the exercise.

H

1."She is directly below you!" my grandmother cried out.

2."Her room is right below yours!"

3.She carried me back into my own bedroom and went out once again on to the balcony.

4."That's her balcony down there," she said.

5."And what's more, the door from her balcony into her bedroom is wide open! How are you going to climb down?"

 

I

1."I don't know," I said.

2.Our rooms were in the front of the hotel and they looked down on to the beach and the sea.

3.Immediately below my balcony, thousands of feet below, I could see a fence of spiked railings.

4.If I fell, I'd be a gonner."I've got it!" my grandmother cried.

5.With me in her hand, she rushed back into her own room and began rummaging in the chest-of-drawers.

6.She came out with a ball of blue knitting-wool.

 

J

1.One end of it was attached to some needles and a half-finished sock she had been knitting for me.

2."This is perfect," she said.

3."I shall put you in the sock and lower you down on to The Grand High Witch's balcony.

4.But we must hurry! Any moment now that monster will be returning to her room!"
