From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The captain hands Charlotte over to Mr. Hollybrass, though before he does so, he bids her farewell by kissing her hand in front of the crew. What a gentleman! (Yeah, right.) Charlotte, however, is stoked.
Mr. Hollybrass takes Charlotte to Mr. Barlow, who's supposed to lead Charlotte to her trunk that's stored in the ship's top steerage.
Charlotte and Mr. Barlow enter the ship's top cargo, and he takes her to her trunk.
Mr. Barlow leaves Charlotte in the darkness of the top cargo to go through her things, and leaves his lit candle near the ladder for her.
Charlotte, though alone, begins to feel a presence. She thinks someone is watching her.
Charlotte looks to the left and right and sees nothing. She finally turns around toward the ladder, and there she sees a grinning head with eyes staring at her.
