Chapter Six narrates the way in which Daniel receives an injury because he insulted a Roman soldier. He manages to stagger back to Joel and Malthace's house to seek sanctuary because he is clearly in no condition to make it back to the hills. When he arrives there, initially Malthace does not want to take him in because of her father's injunction and also because she is worried about Joel and what might happen to him if he pursues his friendship with Daniel. However, Daniel collapses unconscious.

When he wakes up, he discovers that Malthace has hidden him in a storage room of the house that can only be reached through a passageway that is hidden. Daniel is to be kept there until he recuperates and is able to leave without fearing for his life.
