  • Their master's wife, Ms. Lockton, known to the slaves as Madam, is evil. At least I think she is. She is offering Isabel and Ruth milk with some sort of sleeping potion in it. Isabel fell asleep almost right away.

  • When Isabel woke up, Ruth was nowhere in sight. She went all over the big house yelling Ruth's name, but no one answered. Becky, the only other slave, told Isabel with tears in her eyes that Madam had sold Ruth while she was sleeping. She said that Madam had sent her home after the milk and cookies without baking the bread, which was one of her chores.
  • Madam came down the stairs and Isabel ran up the stairs and tried to attack her. Madam grabbed a painting off of the wall and smashed it against Isabel's head. She then ran up the stairs screaming like the house was on fire. Becky opened the door for Isabel and told her to run. Isabel ran out the door toward a rebel fort she had gone to and learned the password of.
  • Isabel ran toward the fort and yelled the password, "Ad Astra". They let her inside and she ran towards the rebel commander. She told him what happened and he said, he couldn't help her. Isabel said, "but you promised you would help me." He said " I take it back," and then Isabel ran out the door wanting Britain to win instead of the rebels.
  • Isabel ran back to the house and was caught by Madam. She reported Isabel to the British and she made the punishment putting an I for insolence on her right cheek. She sat down on the ground and they got a hot iron and put it against her cheek. There were other slaves there with almost the same punishment.
