Summary The Ruffler puts “Jack” in Hugo’s charge while the gang invades a farmhouse, making the family serve them. Hugo takes “Jack” begging. The king refuses, so Hugo tells him to play decoy while he begs. Hugo writhes on the ground, but when a kindly stranger comes near and offers money and assistance to Edward’s “brother,” the king denies that they are related. He tells the stranger to “heal” Hugo by hitting him with a staff. Hugo runs off, and Edward is turned away at all of the farmhouses he stops by. He finally hides in a barn, taking a horse blanket to sleep on. He wakes up several times during the night thinking a corpse has been laid next to him, only to find a calf snuggled close.
Question One What does Edward discover about the life of a peasant? Being a peasant is dangerous and you risk your life almost every day. When Edward did the switch with Tom, he thought it would all be fun and playing in the mud, but instead he has faced many life-threating situations.
Question Two Why does Edward feel so peaceful with the calf? The Calf s Edwards only friend at the moment and when the calf snuggles up to Edward, there is a sense of home about him suddenly Edward does not feel so lonely anymore.
