Then Candy gets in trouble for stepping on the cat’s tale by “accident”, and the mother calls Candy a violent girl.

When Candy sees the sign, she’s cheered by the fact that this property has to have something to do with her missing prince, and as Candy continues to wander around and she keeps seeing her prince’s sign in different places, and Candy concludes that this other piece of property is much larger than the Leagan’s.

        Well, in this episode Candy continues to try and fit in at the Leagan’s household, but her troubles continue. Even Though Candy tries to fit in, and the Leagan’s notice this, it seems that Neil, Eliza, and their mother won’t be satisfied until Candy’s spirit is broken. Mr. Leagan looks like he’s really not a bad guy, but he’s not around enough to be in control of that house.

       Candy really wants to learn how to be a proper lady but none of the Leagans give Candy anything but trouble, so she starts hanging around with the servants. She’ll do anything to be around people who are kind to her, and this leads to her getting in further trouble. But, Candy has found another bright spot, she met another nice young boy/man near the estate that has her “prince’s” sign all over the place. Will these boys lead Candy to her prince, or will they become her prince? Only time will tell.
