Titre original : Eliza's Trap
Candy avoids Terry at Saint Paul's Academy, but she cannot forget the kiss. Albert is in Africa, working in a hospital to treat animals. When Candy receives a letter from him where he asks her to greet Terry for him, she feels obliged to search Terry out and share the letter. He seems happy to see her, and Candy admits to herself that he tends to make her feel good. Green with envy, Eliza warns Terry about Candy's thieving ways, but Terry points out that Eliza needs to take a good look in the mirror. Eliza gets her opportunity for revenge, when she discover how Patricia and Alistear use a hollow tree to pass secret letters to each other. Eliza uses it to set up a night meeting for Candy and Terry in the stables. Just as Candy and Terry start to put two and two together, Sister Gray arrives with a patrol and Eliza and her friend Louisa as witnesses. Sister Gray decides to remove Candy from the Academy, while Terry will be confined for a week. Candy is imprisoned in a tower that she cannot escape from and weeps profusely at the injustice of the whole situation.
