The children are eating lunch in the nursery room. Beyond them is the African glade. The children act as if thee is nothing the matter. They are polite enough to McClean but have the tone defiance and authority in their voices. They know the lions have eaten their parents. They have a sense of satisfaction about them. I would think that McClean might shut the house down and call the police.
