I’m going to my aunt’s in Cornwall.

It’s what my mother wanted.

NED:

But! Mary?

She’s walking away but she stops. He hesitates -

NED (CONT’D)

For a second she looks at him in painful, mute apology. The

jealous watching GIRLS look daggers and whisper behind their

MARY hates hurting him, fixes her eyes on the ground as she

walks away.

9 EXT. ROAD - DAY 1 9

The coach careens through a bleaker, rockier landscape.

10 INT. COACH - EVENING 10

Different PASSENGERS sit opposite MARY now, still better

dressed than she is, their blank eyes staring at her as

though she has no right to be in here.

MARY turns to the window and outside the landscape has

changed.

River Tamar and there’s a glimpse of the distant sea as the

landscape gets wilder, bleaker, and -

MARY’s eyes close, taking her into -

BLACKNESS.

CORNISH DRIVER (V.O.)

Launceston! All out!

11 EXT. THE FLEECE INN, LAUNCESTON, CORNWALL - EVENING 11

MARY blinks awake. The DRIVER opens the carriage door and

MARY follows the other PASSENGERS out *
