As Frau Meyer walks towards the mill, Delfig finds himself waiting in front of the house door, where the various children of the house watch him. The three older children, two boys and a girl, all younger than ten, seem somewhat fearful. The girl in particular watches Delfig with large, worried eyes.
The three year old boy sits against the door jamb and plays with a blade of grass he's just found. He blows on it again and again, watching it dance as he grips it.
Soon Frau Meyer returns, with Herr Meyer. Delfig sees them coming across the grass towards him. A chicken steps daintily out of their way.
"Yes?" asks Herr Meyer.
