The highwayman galloped furiously down the dusty road, through the abandoned misty forest on his mighty horse! As he swooped through the forest like a bat in a cave he felt the air push his body in all directions but he kept his steady and held on. As he reached the old and lifeless front garden of the mossy inn. In this inn there lived the highwayman’s ‘girlfriend’ named Bess, who was the landlords daughter. He looked in the window of the pub and who should be standing there, the landlords daughter Bess. She was standing there flirting with the soldier of a highwayman and then the landlord interfered with love. Bess asked politely if the mighty highwayman would care to enter, but he refused and exclaimed that he would, but he had to go. He said for her to watch for him by moonlight and no hell shall bar his way. He then galloped off like he was on his own in the ghostly abandomed forest. As the highwayman left there was bad news for Bess because the ostler Tim was listening to their conversation and he dreamed to be with Bes, but Bess didn’t. Tim wanted to kill the highayman so Bess would not be able to love the highwayman and will just give Tim a higher chance to get a girlfriend.
