Chapter Twenty 131,Chapter One,Bruno Makes a Discovery. page 1 One afternoon when Bruno came home from school he. was surprised to find Maria the family s maid who always kept. her head bowed and never looked up from the carpet standing in. his bedroom pulling all his belongings out of the wardrobe and. packing them in four large wooden crates even the things he d. hidden at the back that belonged to him and were nobody else s. What are you doing he asked in as polite a tone as he could. muster for although he wasn t happy to come home and find. someone going through his possessions his mother had always. told him that he was to treat Maria respectfully and not just. imitate the way Father spoke to her You take your hands off my. Maria shook her head and pointed towards the staircase behind. him where Bruno s mother had just appeared She was a tall. woman with long red hair that she bundled into a sort of net. behind her head and she was twisting her hands page 2. together nervously as if there was something she didn t want to. have to say or something she didn t want to have to believe. Mother said Bruno marching towards her what s going on Why. is Maria going through my things,She s packing them explained Mother. Packing them he asked running quickly through the events of. the previous few days to consider whether he d been particularly. naughty or had used those words out loud that he wasn t allowed. to use and was being sent away because of it He couldn t think of. anything though In fact over the last few days he had behaved in. a perfectly decent manner to everyone and couldn t remember. causing any chaos at all Why he asked then What have I. Mother had walked into her own bedroom by then but Lars the. butler was in there packing her things too She sighed and threw. her hands in the air in frustration before marching back to the. staircase followed by Bruno who wasn t going to let the matter. drop without an explanation,Mother he insisted What s going on Are we moving. Come downstairs with me said Mother leading the way towards. the large dining room where the Fury had been to dinner the week. before We ll talk down there, page 3 Bruno ran downstairs and even passed her out on the. staircase so that he was waiting in the dining room when she. arrived He looked at her without saying anything for a moment. and thought to himself that she couldn t have applied her make up. correctly that morning because the rims of her eyes were more red. than usual like his own after he d been causing chaos and got into. trouble and ended up crying, Now you don t have to worry Bruno said Mother sitting down in.
the chair where the beautiful blonde woman who had come to. dinner with the Fury had sat and waved at him when Father closed. the doors In fact if anything it s going to be a great adventure. What is he asked Am I being sent away, No not just you she said looking as if she might smile for a. moment but thinking better of it We all are Your father and I. Gretel and you All four of us, Bruno thought about this and frowned He wasn t particularly. bothered if Gretel was being sent away because she was a. Hopeless Case and caused nothing but trouble for him But it. seemed a little unfair that they all had to go with her. But where he asked Where are we going exactly Why can t we. Your father s job explained Mother You know how important it. is don t you, page 4 Yes of course said Bruno nodding his head because. there were always so many visitors to the house men in fantastic. uniforms women with typewriters that he had to keep his mucky. hands off and they were always very polite to Father and told. each other that he was a man to watch and that the Fury had big. things in mind for him, Well sometimes when someone is very important continued. Mother The man who employs him asks him to go somewhere. else because there s a very special job that needs doing there. What kind of job asked Bruno because if he was honest with. himself which he always tried to be he wasn t entirely sure. what job Father did, In school they had talked about their fathers one day and Karl had.
said that his father was a greengrocer which Bruno knew to be. true because he ran the greengrocer s shop in the centre of town. And Daniel had said that his father was a teacher which Bruno. knew to be true because he taught the big boys who it was always. wise to steer clear of And Martin had said that his father was a. chef which Bruno knew to be true because he sometimes. collected Martin from school and when he did he always wore a. white smock and a tartan apron as if he d just stepped out of his. page 5 But when they asked Bruno what his father did he. opened his mouth to tell them then realized that he didn t know. himself All he could say was that his father was a man to watch. and that the Fury had big things in mind for him Oh and that he. had a fantastic uniform too, It s a very important job said Mother hesitating for a moment A. job that needs a very special man to do it You can understand. that can t you,And we all have to go too asked Bruno. Of course we do said Mother You wouldn t want Father to go to. his new job on his own and be lonely there would you. I suppose not said Bruno, Father would miss us all terribly if we weren t with him she. Who would he miss the most asked Bruno,Me or Gretel. He would miss you both equally said Mother for she was a great. believer in not playing favourites which Bruno respected. especially since he knew that he was her favourite really. But what about our house asked Bruno Who s going to take. care of it while we re gone, Mother sighed and looked around the room as if she might never.
see it again It was a very beautiful house and had five floors in. total if you included the basement where Cook made all page. 6 the food and Maria and Lars sat at the table arguing with. each other and calling each other names that you weren t. supposed to use And if you added in the little room at the top of. the house with the slanted windows where Bruno could see right. across Berlin if he stood up on his tiptoes and held onto the frame. We have to close up the house for now said Mother But we ll. come back to it someday, And what about Cook asked Bruno And Lars And Maria Are. they not going to live in it, They re coming with us explained Mother But that s enough. questions for now Maybe you should go upstairs and help Maria. with your packing, Bruno stood up from the seat but didn t go anywhere There were. just a few more questions he needed to put to her before he could. allow the matter to be settled, And how far away is it he asked The new job I mean Is it. further than a mile away, Oh my said Mother with a laugh although it was a strange kind.
of laugh because she didn t look happy and turned away from. Bruno as if she didn t want him to see her face Yes Bruno she. said It s more than a mile away Quite a lot more than that in. Bruno s eyes opened wide and his mouth made the shape of an O. He felt his arms page 7 stretching out at his sides like they did. whenever something surprised him You don t mean we re leaving. Berlin he asked gasping for air as he got the words out. I m afraid so said Mother nodding her head sadly Your father s. But what about school said Bruno interrupting her a thing he. knew he was not supposed to do but which he felt he would be. forgiven for on this occasion And what about Karl and Daniel and. Martin How will they know where I am when we want to do. things together, You ll have to say goodbye to your friends for the time being said. Mother Although I m sure you ll see them again in time And don t. interrupt your mother when she s talking please she added for. although this was strange and unpleasant news there was. certainly no need for Bruno to break the rules of politeness which. he had been taught, Say goodbye to them he asked staring at her in surprise Say. goodbye to them he repeated spluttering out the words as if his. mouth was full of biscuits that he d munched into tiny pieces but. not actually swallowed yet Say goodbye to Karl and Daniel and. Martin he continued his voice coming dangerously close to. shouting which was not allowed indoors But they re my three. best friends for life, Oh you ll make other friends said Mother page 8 waving her. hand in the air dismissively as if the making of a boy s three best. friends for life was an easy thing,But we had plans he protested. Plans asked Mother raising an eyebrow What sort of plans. Well that would be telling said Bruno who could not reveal the. exact nature of the plans which included causing a lot of chaos. especially in a few weeks time when school finished for the. summer holidays and they didn t have to spend all their time just. making plans but could actually put them into effect instead. I m sorry Bruno said Mother but your plans are just going to. have to wait We don t have a choice in this,But Mother.
Bruno that s enough she said snapping at him now and. standing up to show him that she was serious when she said that. was enough Honestly only last week you were complaining about. how much things have changed here recently, Well I don t like the way we have to turn all the lights off at night. now he admitted, Everyone has to do that said Mother It keeps us safe And who. knows maybe we ll be in less danger if we move away Now I. need you to go upstairs and help Maria with your packing We. don t have as much time to prepare as I would have liked thanks. to some people, page 9 Bruno nodded and walked away sadly knowing that. some people was a grown up s word for Father and one that he. wasn t supposed to use himself, He made his way up the stairs slowly holding onto the banister. with one hand and wondered whether the new house in the new. place where the new job was would have as fine a banister to slide. down as this one did For the banister in this house stretched from. the very top floor just outside the little room where if he stood. on his tiptoes and held onto the frame of the window tightly he. could see right across Berlin to the ground floor just in front of. the two enormous oak doors And Bruno liked nothing better than. to get on board the banister at the top floor and slide his way. through the house making whooshing sounds as he went. Down from the top floor to the next one where Mother and. Father s room was and the large bathroom and where he wasn t. supposed to be in any case, Down to the next floor where his own room was and Gretel s.
room too and the smaller bathroom which he was supposed to. use more often than he really did, Down to the ground floor where you fell off the end of the. banister and had to land flat on your two feet or it was five points. against you and you had to start all over again, page 10 The banister was the best thing about this house that. and the fact that Grandfather and Grandmother lived so near by. and when he thought about that it made him wonder whether they. were coming to the new job too and he presumed that they were. because they could hardly be left behind No one needed Gretel. much because she was a Hopeless Case it would be a lot easier if. she stayed to look after the house but Grandfather and. Grandmother Well that was an entirely different matter. Bruno went up the stairs slowly towards his room but before. going inside he looked back down towards the ground floor and. saw Mother entering Father s office which faced the dining room. and was Out Of Bounds At All Times And No Exceptions and he. heard her speaking loudly to him until Father spoke louder than. Mother could and that put a stop to their conversation Then the. door of the office closed and Bruno couldn t hear any more so he. thought it would be a good idea if he went back to his room and. took over the packing from Maria because otherwise she might. Yes of course said Bruno nodding his head because there were always so many visitors to the house men in fantastic uniforms women with typewriters that he had to keep his mucky
