In Chapter 21 Hester does feel a sense of excitement and anticipation because she and Dimmesdale have decided to flee the town with Pearl. Hester and Dimmesdale have worked out a plan to escape on their ship that is leaving for Europe. Unfortunately Chillingworth has ruined her plans by joining the ship’s crew as a physician.
