“What are you taking all those things home for, Anne?” Diana wanted to know, as soon as they were out on the road. She had not dared to ask the question before.

Diana gasped and looked at Anne to see if she meant it.

“Will Marilla let you stay home?” she

“She’ll have to,” said Anne. “I’ll never go to school to that man again.”

“Oh, Anne!” I do think Diana looked as if she were ready to cry. “I do think you’re mean. What shall I do?


"Will Marilla let you stay home?": The published version adds the missing "asked."
