After discovering that Sir John has sold her Father's farmland, Lady Devereux decides to enlist the help of Swiftnick to intercept the delivery of the money gained from the sales. She writes a letter from Lady Devereux to Swiftnick, and then dresses as DeeDee to take the letter to him.
After planning the heist in the crypt, Tom, Moses and DeeDee prepare to leave, but then find that the door to the crypt is jammed – there is no other way out. Believing that they will die in the lair, DeeDee decides to write about her experiences, hoping that her Father will find it in later years. There is then a flashback to what happened when they first met.
DeeDee speaks of how she was held up by Tom and Moses when she first arrived at the castle. Lady Devereux pulled out a gun, and robbed both boys of their clothing. Later on, Lady Devereux decided to join the outlaw gang, so as to be able to fight against Sir John, stopping him from taking all power from her Father. She dressed as a peasant, DeeDee, and joined the gang.
Lady Devereux then hears of how a masked prisoner is to be delivered to the castle. Believing it is her Father, she enlists the help of the boys to release this man. They succeed, but unfortunately it is only a messenger of Lady Devereux's Father. He tells DeeDee to get in touch with Lady Devereux, and tell her to keep resisting Sir John.
At this point, Moses fixes the door to the lair, and they are able to escape. DeeDee destroys the letter by eating it, for fear that Tom may learn to read some day!moreless
