START: [Girton’s orchard. RALPH waits leaning against a tree. TESS appears. It’s dark and very quiet. She creeps to one tree. He creeps to another. She moves in the shadows from tree to tree, becoming increasingly anxious.]

TESS. Curses.

[... …]

END: RALPH. I’ll leave you a sign. Look out for it. Goodnight, sweet mistress!

TESS. Goodnight.

[She watches him until he is out of sight. Then she has a little moment of elation before she exits.]
