Summary of Footprints without feet Class 10 English

• To their surprise, two boys on the streets of London spotted fresh muddy footprints of bare feet without the presence of any person walking there. It was a mystery for them.

•The explanation to the mystery was that a scientist named Griffin had discovered something which could make his body transparent like glass and hence invisible to others and it was he who was walking on the streets of London invisibly.

• Being a lawless person, Griffin set ablaze his landlord's house in revenge and ran away. He had to remove his clothes to be invisible.

• Being winter season, the cold forced him to enter a big store and hide there. At night, he put on new clothes, fed himself from the store restaurant and went to sleep.

• He woke up late and was found by the store staff. They chased him. Again, he had to remove his clothes to escape from there.

•Then, he entered a theatrical company where he wore bandages on his face, bushy side whiskers, a false nose and dark glasses. Before leaving the company, he robbed the owner and left London for a village to escape arrest.

•In the village, he stayed in an inn owned by Mrs. Hall. To explain his odd look, he told Mrs. Hall that he had met with an accident. He also instructed her not to be disturbed. Soon the money he looted from the theatre company finished.

•Mrs. Hall asked for rent. He lied that he was waiting for money by mail. To pay Mrs. Hall, he robbed a clergyman's house. For this act, again, he had to be invisible by removing his clothes.

•Same day, suspicious of his activities, Mr. and Mrs. Hall entered Griffin's room. They were attacked by the furniture of the room. Mrs. Hall considered it the act of a haunted spirit.

• The clergyman reported the burglary to the police and the whole village including Mrs. Hall was of the opinion that her eccentric guest had something to do with it because he had paid the bill without having received any money through mail.

• Resultantly, the village policeman came to arrest Griffin but he saw a bizarre sight where people were struggling with a man who was becoming more and more invisible every passing minute. Griffin used his power and kicked the policeman and ran away.
