    it was perfectly alright
    Joe puts his hand in the mouth, then suddenly starts screaming, pretending he can't pull the hand out. Ann, scared, screams too, trying to pull out his arm. Then Joe takes the hand out, having drawn it into the sleeve, as if it has been bitten off. Ann is in horror. When she realizes all is ok, she playfully beats him:
    You beast! it was perfectly alright! You never hurt your hand!

    What does the "it" refer to?
    Thank you.

    "It" refers to his hand. It was never injured.
