'How can you stand there arguing，'cried Mavis Pellington，'with a wild animal in the house？''Lord Pabham，'began Mr Hampton，'you know a lot about wild animals…''I buy all my animals，'said Lord Pabham.'I have never found one in a conservatory before.But this is a wolf，I am sure of that.I think it's probably a North American she－wolf_''Oh，who cares where it came from！'screamed Mavis，as the wolf came a few steps further into the room.'Can't you offer it some food，and take it away safely somewhere before it bites somebody？''If this animal is really Mrs Hampton，'said Clovis，'she's just had an excellent dinner.She won't be interested in food.'Oh，Leonard，'cried his aunt，'can't you use your wonderful powers to change this terrible animal into something small and gentle，like a rabbit？''I don't think Mr Hampton would like that，'said Clovis.'You're right！'shouted Mr Hampton.'I forbid it！''All my wolves love sugar，'said Lord Pabham.'If you like，I'll offer this one a piece.'He took a piece of sugar from the table and pushed it along the floor towards Louisa.She ate it quickly and then，clearly hoping for more sugar，she followed Lord Pabham out of the room.The guests left the table thankfully and hurried into the conservatory.It was empty.
