The girl marries the hermit, Fear O'God Fulton in order to calm the people's anger and day by day she falls in love with her husband and a child is born. Pettigrew hides Edward and charges the hermit with his son's murder. Fear O'God is imprisoned but he escapes and takes refuge in the mountain with his wife and son.
