Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (MacMillan Readers, Beginner)In 1825, I was ten years old. My father and mother were dead. I lived with my aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mr.s Reed. Their house was called Gateshead Hall. The house was in Yorkshire, in the north of England. My Aunt and Uncle Reed had two children — a boy, John, and a girl, Eliza.

I liked my Uncle Reed and he liked me. But in 1825, my uncle died. After that, I was very unhappy. My Aunt Reed did not like me. And John and Eliza were unkind to me.

It was a cold, rainy day in December. All of us were in the house. I wanted to be alone. I wanted to read. I opened a book. Then I heard my Cousin John’s voice.

‘Jane! Jane Eyre! Where are you?’ John shouted. He came into the room and he saw me.

‘Why are you reading my book?’ he asked. ‘Give it to me!’

John took the book. He hit my head with it. I screamed. John hit me again. I pulled his hair and I kicked him.

‘Help! Help, Mamma!’ John shouted. ‘Jane Eyre is hurting me!’ Aunt Reed ran into the room. She pulled me away from John.

‘John hit me with a book,’ I said. ‘I hate him. And I hate you too!’

‘You are a bad girl, Jane,’ my aunt said. ‘Why do you hate me?’ ‘You don’t like me,’ I replied. ‘John and Eliza are unkind to me. I want to leave Gateshead Hall.’

‘You want to leave!’ Aunt Reed said. ‘Where will you go? Your parents are dead. You cannot live alone.’

Aunt Reed thought for a moment.

‘My friend, Mr. Brocklehurst, is the owner of a school,’ she said. ‘I will send you to Mr. Brocklehurst’s school.’
