Dana was walking through the woods in order to avoid the road because she was scared that someone might mistake her for a runway slave and sell her off.
Since she was getting lost in the woods, she decided to take the road. She took the road but as she was walking, something ran passed her leg really quickly which made her scared. She felt scared and dizzy but this time it didn't send her back home.
When she saw a horse and people come by she dove into the bushes and hid. After they left she decided to follow them, which she herself knew was dumb.
As she followed the people on the horses, they stopped in front of a log cabin. They went inside and grabbed a man ad a brought him outside followed by a woman and a child.
They asked the man whether he had a pass to be out of the planation. The man said yes but he couldn't prove it so they started to punish him/whip him for leaving the plantation without permission.
After they were done whipping the man they started to leave but one man seemed to be having a conversation with the woman but it seems like he didn't like what she said because he punched her in the face which made her fall to the ground.
