PART FOUR - LIFE AT MOOR HOUSE
I Am No Longer Poor
"St. John!" I cried. I could not stay quiet.
"I can imagine how you feel," he said, holding up his hand. "But wait until I'm done with the story. I don't know anything about this Mr. Rochester, but I do know that he wanted to marry this young girl. But during the wedding, she learned that he already had a wife! And, his wife was mad. After this, the girl disappeared. Many people have tried to find her, but no one knows where she is. But she must be found! A lawyer named Briggs needs to talk to her, about something very important."
"Just tell her one thing," I said desperately. "What about Mr. Rochester? Where is he? What is he doing? Is he well?"
"I don't know. Why don't you ask me the girl's name, and why people are looking for her?"
"Did Mr. Briggs write to Mr. Rochester?" I asked.
"He did, but Rochester didn't write back. Instead a woman named Mrs. Fairfax answered his letter."
I felt cold and miserable. Probably Mr. Rochester had left England to live an exciting life in Europe. He would looked for a new woman to love.
"You won't ask the girl's name, so I'll tell you," said St. John. "I have it right here." He took out a little piece of paper and showed it to me. The paper came from my drawing book, and said"JANE EYRE" in my own writing.I had written my real name on Miss Oliver's drawing without thinking!
