Next day, Jo wanted to get out of the house, so she picked up her skates and went next door to ask Laurie to take her skating.
  Amy heard them going. “Jo promised to take me with her next time!” she complained.
  “It’s hard for her to forgive you, Amy,” said Meg. “Go after them and wait until Jo is enjoying herself, then give her a kiss or do something kind.”
  It was not far to the river, but Jo and Laurie were already skating when Amy arrived. Jo saw Amy but turned away.
  Laurie was carefully skating along the edge of the ice and didn’t see the younger girl. 
  Amy put her skates on and stood on the ice. 
  “Keep near the edge. The ice isn’t safe in the middle.” Laurie called to Jo, then he disappeared round the first bend in the river.
  Jo heard, but Amy did not. Jo realized that Amy probably hadn’t heard, but she said nothing and skated after Laurie. “Let Amy look after herself!” Jo thought. 
  Amy skated out towards the smoother ice in the middle of the river. Jo reached the bend, and for a moment she stood still, a strange feeling in her heart. Something made her turn round—just in time to see Amy throw up her hands and go crashing through the ice into the cold water! Amy gave a cry that made Jo’s heart stop with fear. She tried to call Laurie, but her voice was gone, and for a second she could only stand and stare at the little blue hood(帽子) of Amy’s coat above the black water.
  Suddenly, Laurie skated past her and shouted, “Bring a piece of wood from the side of the river, quickly!”
  Wild with fear, Jo fetched some wood and pulled it across the ice, while Laurie held Amy’s head above the water. Together, they got her out.
  She was more frightened than hurt, and was quickly taken home. They covered her in blankets and tried to calm her, and after a little while she fell asleep in front of the warm fire. Later, when everything was quiet, Jo asked her mother, “Are you sure she is safe ?”
  “Quite safe, dear. It was sensible to get her home as quickly as you did.”
  “Laurie did it all,” said Jo. “Mother, if she should die, it will be my fault. I get angry so quickly. Oh, why can’t I be more like you?”
  “I get angry nearly every day of my life, Jo,” said Mrs March, “but I've learned not to show it. I’ve learned to stop myself saying the angry words that come to my lips, and you must try to do the same, my dear.”
