With such great offer, the deal was the governess should be fully in charge of the kids, that is, regardless any problem that may occur. She should never trouble him, neither appeal nor complain nor write about anything; only meet all questions herself, receive all moneys from his solicitor, take the whole thing over and let him alone.
The story is arranged in such a way that it allures readers primarily with the main character, the governess whom was at first, depicted as kind, lovely person, having the narrator in loved with her. On the other hand the story had kept her whole personality intriguing as it has not directly professed what was running on the governess' mind. Her excessive love for the children had led to obsession pushing her to possess them had open the possibilty of that tragic end was due to her psychosis. Latter part of the story serves as strong proof of her delusions, hallucinating that the children were also evil. May all suspicions real or not, despite the tragic death; still the first part of the story implies the integrity within the governess that in her sane mind had managed to write her own side of the story and be loved by the narrator.
