START: CELIA. What are you doing out here?

TESS. Daydreaming.

CELIA. It’s the middle of the night. Listen, have you finished your Cuvier notes? Caro thinks we need to learn the fossil studies. Have you read them?

[... …]

END: CELIA. You should watch yourself, Tess. I’ve never – I haven’t – I mean, I’ve never had a Ralph. I want that too. Almost more than anything. But being here… it’s not until it’s taken away that you understand. They sent me home. Nervous exhaustion. I worked through till dawn every night then went straight to prayers. I had to fight to come back. What would I have done if they’d said no? Don’t throw this away. Not when it’s only just started.
