"A tantrum"

Mary was sleeping when Colin had a tantrum. Everybody was running up and down the house. Colin's nurse asked Mary to make the young rajah stop. He was yelling, and shouting, and screaming.
Mary was furious. She got into her cousin's room and screamed too. She said she hated Colin and that, if he shouted again, she would do it too.
Then, Colin said he saw a lump on is back and Mary, furiously, ordered the nurse to show her her cousin's back. The little girl said there was nothing, just Colin's backbone.
Mary and his cousin agreed Colin would go outside the house with his cousin and Dickon. Mary sang to the young rajah a song that her Ayah would sing to her.
Colin and the girl were no longer fighting.
