Meanwhile, Hurlan arrives at the revelation that he wants to be a physician. Seeking counsel from the town doctor, Hurlan suddenly finds himself with a medical practice of his own when the town doctor decides to retire.

    In our tale's thrilling conclusion, Hurlan accidentally reveals the secret to the curse of Heartshe Holler to his sister Hambrosia.
