Jean leads May over the school field fence into a lush and picturesque green meadow which she claims can only be reached through that way. The two girls enjoy themselves there for a while, during when May finds out that Jean's parents passed away when she was younger.
The next day is a really bad one for May, as she is apprehended by the prefects for her skirt being too short. Eventhough she claims it was perfectly fine last week, the prefects will have none of it and escort her to the discipline teacher's office, which in turn makes her late for class and unable to complete her unfinished homework. She spends the afternoon Jean's "secret garden" with her to let off some steam. Jean relates a tale or two about being bullied terribly by Saras' gang some time back, making her discover the "secret garden" which cured her constant unhappiness. May smiles and tries to comfort her, leading us into Chapter 11.
