Jacob, Millard, and Emma came to a small room and Emma left to find the headmistress.
Jacob turned to see the window and saw children playing, then someone kicked a ball too hard and ended up getting stuck to a tree. A girl reached a boy and then he looped a rope around her waist, and she started to levitate, but she couldn't reach the ball.
That's why Emma had been so reluctant to believe me that I was Abe Portman's grandson.
I'm afraid she's quite sensitive as regards your grandfather, they were admirers.
Then Jacob saw a second girl with a wild hair. She reached the tree and close her eyes concentrating then the tree moved plucking out the ball and tossed it back to the kids.
Go wash off the bog mud before sitting down to dinner, please.
Finally, Jacob met Miss Peregrine. She answered a lot of doubt and questions Jacob had, explaining to him a little bit of what they were. Her answers left Jacob astonished and also confused.
Miss Peregrine paused and opened a door to find Emma with her face red and streaked with tears. She'd heard everything.
Miss Peregrine answered some more questions for Jacob and she insisted for Jacob to get ready for dinner.
