"That must go to the attic," says Alice. "Shall we try the next one?"

"Yes good plan."

Henry closes the first door and goes to the second, keeping close by Alice's side.

The next door leads into what is obviously Tabitha's bedroom. A small crib leans up against a pastel yellow wall. Nearby stands a new chest of draws. There is very little in this room; it looks like it was emptied hastily, as several of the draws of the chest are open, and there looks to be nothing inside. A patch of yellow beneath the dress appears to be a small china doll, perhaps forgotten in the rush to leave. Two more doors can be seen, each adjacent to the far corner of the room.

"We're getting closer," says Alice. "Surely her room will be near the baby's room. Let's try the door on the right far corner next."

There are three more doors. There is another room next to Tabitha’s bedroom, and standing next to this door the companions can see two more doors; one on the left and one more facing them.

"Maybe it's the room next to Tabitha's?" suggests Alice.

"I'll take this for Tabitha." says Henry, picking up the doll.

This bedroom overlooks the front garden. It contains a dresser, chair, single bed and a pair of closets, and like the other room seems to have been emptied in some haste.

Alice takes a look inside the closets and the dresser drawers to see if anything has been left behind.

Isadora Carmichael

Isadora walks around the room, knocking on the walls. Then she goes to the window, and takes a look outside at the garden.

Spoiler:
There are one or two items of women’s clothing, but nothing of any real interest.

The garden outside is peaceful. A cat runs across the lawn.

"Just a few of her clothes they left here," says Alice. She examines the wallpaper to see if it matches the description she had heard.

The wallpaper is a pale pastel blue, with a pattern of small raised polka dots.

"The wallpaper doesn't look off to me," says Alice. "I guess that's a good sign, though."

A thought occurs to Harrison - are they correct in assuming that this is Margaret's room?
