  • "One kiss my bonny sweetheart...I shall be back"(Noyes).
  • The Highway Man has fallen in love with the landlords daughter, Bess. He promises to come back in the morning after he gets the riches from the robbery he is completing.
  • Tim, the ostler, is also in love with Bess and gets very angry when he sees Bess and the Highway Man together. He wants to get revenge so he calls King George's men.
  • But I love Bess, much more than that Highway Man!
  • Its after the morning light and the Highway Man has not yet returned from his robbery. While he was gone,Bess was taken hostage by the King George's men. 
  • Where is the Highway Man?!
  • Surprise! As the Kings men, we are going to hold you hostage and wait for the Highway Man to return!
  • Bess was not able to escape from the king's men so she decided to try and get a hold of the gun, which she was able to do. 
  • I cannot escape, so I must try to grab the musket just in case. There! It is now midnight and my finger is on the trigger. 
  • Bess heard that the Highway Man was on his way back to the inn, although the kings men did not hear him. Bess decided she needed to warn him so she sacrificed herself and shot herself, ultimately dying . She wanted the gunshot to warn the Highway Man. 
  • This is the only way I will be able to save him. I need to warn him somehow about the sneak attack. 
  • As soon as he walks in here we have to kill him! We need to plan a sneak attack against him!
