Summary of Section XV
The governess feels that Miles has triumphed over her. He knows there is something she is afraid of—that the uncle will find out what is going on. She thinks to herself that she should want him to know, but she could not face the ugliness of it or about the boy's dismissal from school. She also knows that Miles is right and is amazed that he is mature enough to think out a plan to clear things up—he will find a way to get his uncle to come. She considers giving up and leaving Bly. As she goes to her room to pack, she suddenly sees the ghost of Miss Jessel at her desk, looking tragic and damned. She decides to stay.
