Poisoned love


You might be asking why the mysterious highwayman road to his death or why Bess warned him not to come back to the house? Well this is the heart breaking story of: Bess, Tim and the Highwayman.

While the roaring swiped itself into the highlighted, glimmering sky like an invisible eagle souring ,a mysterious rider came riding-riding up to the old in-door .to who answered the door, but jaw-dropping , wonderful Bess (the land lord black eyed daughter)As lucky as that was Tim the  stable boy was slyly cleaning the barn at that exact moment in time! Cautious Tim hurried anxiously behind the ragged door spying up at the window on the cream wall. 

I will come in the early darning with yellow-golden coins by my side, oh for just one kiss my pretty sweet heart! Implied the highwayman. Tim was so seriously furious. He was hopefully going to get cold-revenge …   

As 5.00 went, no-sight of him, but as 5.15 came something or someone was here ‘creak’ the well-used door slowly opened! Mortified Bess hid in a small empty closet. Did they know she was there?  Her cold cell was exposed .The cold hard door closed. There was no escape! Suddenly light peered through  the closet door began to opened with a gust of wind blowing through like ghostly water . Lifeless -less like Bess sat still a moment… Silence.
