Edward traveled to Salt Lagoon and located the deserter.
Deserter:(I'll stay here, and nowhere else. And they'll look but they won't find me. Ha! No! Devil take them they're a band of monkeys scratching their arses. I'll never submit! They'll never find me. They never will, for I'm invisible to all but God's eyes.)
Edward killed the deserter and left the island.
Edward completed the contract and received his payment.
