Titre original : Two Stowaways
Candy is not the sole stowaway. Cookie is the other, trying for the tenth time already. How he came to be captured so often is proven by his carelessness with his things that he leaves lying about in the cargo. Captain Nieven orders a search, just when Cookie ventures out for food. While Candy remains safely downstairs, undetected, Candy overhears how the sailors throw Cookie overboard to teach him a lesson. Her conscience gets the better of her and she rushes to Cookie's rescue. But her decisive manner of giving orders and chastising the men for their dangerous prank makes them believe she must be the Captain's daughter. While she nurtures Cookie back to consciousness and warmth, Captain Nieven visits the two fifteen-year-olds, not at all amused. He inquires with Candy about her story. When she volunteers no info, the Captain declares a boat of the same company passing them on its way to the UK will pick them up and repatriate them, in spite of Candy and Cookie's protests for clemency.
