Description: We learn that Tom's sister Dorrie (coachman gave him a message) has sent some word of where she is. Minty agrees with Tom that it would appear he has grown in stature since they last metæTom then admits that Minty is not the only ghost he has found in the gardens, she is smaller and only seen at night. He reveals that Sarah is her name, to which Minty says that she has also seen her. Before anything else can be said, the gardener (Mags) appears and shouts at Tom . Both children run off and hide round the back of the house. On looking around the corner Minty sees a coach and family with maids and footmen in attendance. Tom is again shouted at by the footman who apparently cannot see Minty though. Tom at this point discovers that he is the only one who can see Minty and in order to prove this, takes her into the kitchen. The cook and maids look right through her and admonish Tom for standing doing nothing. The nasty cook grabs Tom and marches him down dark corridor and locks him in dark room. Minty who had followed also finds herself locked in. Minty at this point sits down and closes her eyes and when she re-opens them, finds herself once more in the present day and back beside the moondial. Back now with Aunt Mary the two are making up the room for Ms Raven. Minty is most upset to find that Ms Raven has been in her room looking at the pictures on the wall and asking questions about them. Minty then lies on her bed and records her thoughts into a tape machine. "Tonight, I will go tonight, before she gets here" Minty says to herself. Later that same day she runs into the night in just her night gown. She runs through the church gates and across the graveyard. She is then stopped by the large closed gates leading to the large house. She thus goes through the bushes and over a wall before walking slowly down the path towards the moondial. She then stops at the moondial and asks it "Who are you ?" She then touches the moondial and closes her eyes. It begins to rotate.
