there's a kid that she's hiding in some little town!
They reported it to the foreman, warning it could cause problems if the mayor found out.
Yes, there's indeed a child and the child is my daughter. I pay for the child, I need this job
The foreman was disgusted; he didn't believe a word she said, so they fired Fantine and sent her out into the streets.

what lovely hair. I'll give you 10 francs think about that
10 francs may save my poor Cosette
She was forced and abused to sell her teeth for 20 francs. She felt betrayed, but there was a man who said his willingness to pay money for her youth.

Fantine begging Officer Javert not to take her to jail for scratching a rich persistent pervert. Monsieur Le mayor then arrived to save her, saying he believed she was telling the truth
