Winnie is ready to run away because she is mad that her mother and grandmother treat her like a child.
When Winnie runs away to the Wood, she finds Jessie drinking water from a spring.
When Mae found out Winnie knew about the spring, she didn't know what to do so she kidnapped her and told her their story.
Jessie wants Winnie to drink the water when she is 17 and come away and marry him. He gives her a bottle of the water to keep so she can drink it when she is 17.
Winnie helped Mae escape jail by taking her place in the middle of the night. This brought much shame to her family.
Winifred Foster Jackson 1870-1948
