After walking all day Jim and Ma stop for Ma to drink water from the fountain.
As Jim and Ma continue walking Ma lies down for a little rest on the pavement and Jim sits beside her and they both fall asleep.
Then Jim wakes up with a shaking from a boy with other boys surrounding him,his Ma and the boy.
Before Jim new it, his ma was on a cart being pulled away in seconds so Jim started running after her as the crowd started leaving.
Then Jim looked up as the cart stopped and they were there- the work house. He was hauled up by a man with white hair to hear the dreaded words.
'ere's another one for the work house.
After a day of being at the work house, Jim found out that the man with the white hair is called Joseph and he had gave Jim the worst news ever-his ma passed away.After that Jim was so upset that he cried only when hr was alone.
