"'It's Mother!'"

While Mary, Dickon, Ben and Colin worked in the garden, the young rajah talked about Magic and his discoveries. Then, he stood up and felt the sun on his body. Dickon started to sing a song thanking God. Everybody sang it twice and, in the last line, a woman entered the garden. She was Mrs. Susan Sowerby, Dickon's mother.
The woman said Colin looked like his mother and that his legs would be the strongest in the whole world. She also said Mary would be beautiful as her mother, like a rose.
They talked and walked through the garden. Colin asked Mrs. Sowerby if she believed in Magic. She said she did. Colin admired Dickon's mother the rest of the afternoon, wishing she was his mother too. And Mrs. Sowerby said, that Colin's mother would probably be there, in the Garden, looking after him.
