Now that Johnny is gone, Mr. Tweedie makes Cilla fetch water for the silversmith. Johnny is upset to see the pretty, delicate girl being forced to do hard labor. He carries the water for her and introduces Cilla to Goblin. He asks Cilla to meet him on Thursdays and Sundays––or whenever she is sent for water––so that he can carry it for her. She is reluctant at first, but she agrees when Johnny admits that he really just wants an excuse to talk to her and Isannah.
