The next morning Peter and Henry were to go to Miss Ethyl’s farm (where they are to live for the time being) yet Peter had his own plans, he wanted to follow the map before leaving the village. When they were waiting on the carriage he faked needing to pee, so when he left behind a bush, he ran into the woods towards the east as the map says.
He ran desperately for quite a time before he reached a cabin in the woods. He saw much movement going on inside, he had second thoughts, but trembling, he pressed onward. He climbed upon the top (remembering what happened the last time he tried to explore one of these buildings) and looked through a small hole in the roof. Inside Peter saw the woman who attacked him with a hand upon the door knob turning it before opening it and leaving, he also saw groups of men singing and joking over top each other, all slering there words, as if drunk.
Peter saw one man who sat alone, he did not speak to the rest of the room, he was silent, and almost as grim as the scars that littered his skin, almost as eerie as the depictions of his tattoos on his bared arms and chest. It should be apparent that Peter was quite afraid.
