On the ground behind her, a SCARF.

7A EXT. NORCOMBE HILL - DAY 7A

-towards a high vantage point. The panorama is magnificent

and she smiles to herself.

She urges the horse on, a wonderful rider, riding past

GABRIEL without even stopping.

7B INT. GABRIEL’S COTTAGE,- NIGHT 7B

The SCARF again, but now it lies on the table of GABRIEL

OAK’s cottage, a neat, comfortable place.

GABRIEL sits nearby, counting out money which he locks away

in a strong box. He closes his money box.

His eye returns to the SCARF

8 EXT. GABRIEL’S COTTAGE - DAY 8

Another day. From his high vantage point, GABRIEL with his

sheep and dogs, behind him his cottage.

He sees BATHSHEBA walking by, below.

GABRIEL:

Miss!

In his hand, the lost SCARF. He stays proudly on top of the

hill, so she has to climb the hill towards him. He hands her

the scarf.

BATHSHEBA:

(out of breath)

My scarf. I lost it. You must be

Farmer Oak.

(surprise from GABRIEL)

This is your land, I must be

trespassing.

GABRIEL:

You’re welcome here. Gabriel. And

you are...?

BATHSHEBA:

I’d rather not tell you. It’s a

very odd name, I try not to say it

out loud.

GABRIEL:

I’m sure you could get a new one.

If you wanted.

(An awkward moment, a

misfire. She takes the

scarf -)

Forgive me, I can’t always..map my

mind on my tongue.

BATHSHEBA:

Thank you. Farmer Oak.

On BATHSHEBA as she walks away, a small smile appearing.

8A EXT. MRS HURST’S FARM, NORCOMBE HILL - DAY 8A

BATHSHEBA is milking the cows. GABRIEL is herding his sheep

nearby, heading up to the small SHEPHERD’S HUT, a kind of

CARAVAN from where he guards the sheep.
