But in the shadows Tim the ostler who loves Bess listens and tells the red coats. The next evening, instead of the highwayman, some British soldiers show up. These guys are real jerks. They drink a bunch of beer, they tie Bess tightly with ropes and put a bayonet beneath her chin, and after that they then wait at the windows to murder the highwayman when he comes back.
