Storyboard Text

  • Mary's feelings as she was waiting for her husband where happy because according to paragraph 2,"Now and again she would glance up at the clock, but without anxiety, merely to please herself with the thought that each minute gone by made it nearer the time when he would come." Meaning she couldn't wait for him to come home every minute that wen't by.
  • This shows that Mary really cares for husband and loves him. Because it says that she pleased herself by looking at the clock and seeing what time that it got closer and closer to her husband came home from work. She just couldn't wait for him to come home. 
  • She had shock because she didn't expect her husband that she really loved to just leave her. Mary loved her husband a lot that why she couldn't wait for him to come home so when she heard this she just couldn't believe it.
  • Roald Dahl's description of Mary actions suggest that she wasn't fully aware of what she was doing because it states that,"The violence of the crash, the noise, the small table overturning, helped bring her out of her shock. She came out slowly, feeling cold and surprised, and she stood for a while blinking at the body, still holding the ridiculous piece of meat tight with both hands." This she didn't know what she was doing because after she did that to Patrick it says that she feeling cold and suprised.
  • She is trying to convince herself that she hasn't murdered Patrick because it states,"Therefore, when she entered the kitchen by the back door, she was humming a little tune to herself and smiling. “Patrick!” she called. “How are you, darling?” This is saying she must feel as her husband alive and she keeps acting like it's a typical  day to convince herself he still alive.
  • Mary is confused that she actually just killed her husband that she loved. She is trying to convince herself that she didn't by acting like it is just a typical day in there house and she never killed her husband.
