Kate raced out of the now fixed school house to try and find Sam. When she did she said, "I found one more thing that is broken, but I don't know if you can fix it!" "What is it?" He said. "My heart" he seemed to understand and pulled her itno a tender kiss.
Little did they know, that someone was watching from the shadows...
One day, Kate was finished with her teachings for the day, she was walking home and out of the corner of her eye some red reflecting on the lake. She turned around and saw that Trout and some of the other men, were holding torches and burning the school house on fire!
She raced over and yelled "Trout, why are you doing this?!?!" He responded with "Kissin a dark man is a fellony. And no one ever says no to Trout Walker."
She ran to the Sheriff's station and told hime everything. He just sat there. "Sam will be hung tomorrow. He will be punished by the law. You will be punished by the Lord." She was clearly distraught. He then said "Maybe if you give me a kiss, I'll change my mind." She couldn't believe her ears and ran out.
The next morning she warned Sam and he told her he already knew. They decided to try to escape on Sams boat.
