Eventually, the two grow older and meet. They end up getting married at the manor house. Philip, being virginal his entire life, falls in love with the idea of the older Rachel. He enjoys her time and company. But their marriage is not everything it seems. He becomes suspicious of the special tea that Rachel keeps giving him and eventually learns that she is planning something wicked.
