He said he was a member of parliament so I trusted him. He told me he wished me to meet another member. His member for love. He locked the door, I pleaded for my maidenhood, but... The words are common place but they deserve the frontest piece. Show them Maud. The execution for the member of love. The delicate rendering of the crimson tip. I don't have to borrow, very rare. I had it as a young man, it was sold in difficultly. For a shilling. I would not part with it now for fifty pounds. But having slipped the bolt off the door.. A curator of poisons, as my uncle described himself to me. I was twelve years old when he began inoculating me with poison. Grain by grain, scruple by scruple. So I should be immune to what I read. Be his librarian. And when he lost his sight, his eyes. So they came together. The romance might have been somewhat unusual, but that gave it all the charm of the unexpected. And there, as the red sun tinges the sky, and the chatter of birds heralds the coming night, we must leave them. You don't care for your uncles subjects? I'm his secretary, it's a matter of total indifference to me. I find it rather curious to find a lady so cool and unmoved by something designed to stir the emotions. Most ladies in those books and paintings seem to me to be singularly unmoved by it. You are very uncommon, Miss Lilly. So I understand Sir. Miss Lilly. Dear Miss Lilly, we need to talk. It's about your mother's will. I know nothing of what I read from those books, Sir. I've not come for that, Miss Lilly. I can get that in the street corner. I'm here to help you. How much do you think you'll receive when you marry? A few hundred. Forty thousand pounds. Who told you such nonsense? Hawtrey. You're the talk of the shady book shops in London and in Paris. Your readings and the favors men imagine follow them. Your uncle is a villain, Miss Lilly! And you are not? I came here to seduce you. Secure your fortune. But I saw what life has made of you and I knew it wouldn't work. To a woman like you it would be an insult. Instead I want to free you. You are very gallant, Mr. Rivers. Suppose I don't care to be freed. I think you long for it. Go please, go! Good afternoon, Miss Lilly. Good afternoon, Mr. Rivers. Will you marry me? How dare you? He's lively today, ain't he Mr. Rivers? Not as lively as me, Charles. I swear I will not touch you after the ceremony, we will go our separate ways. Why would you do such a thing? For half your fortune. I'd tell him his idea was nonsense. My uncle would pursue me. Not if he thinks you're in the mad house he whispers. But it would not be me who was locked up. His plan is to install a new maid a compliant chaperon. A thief who will think she's cheating me. Instead, we will cheat her. She will take with her into the mad house all the taint of my mothers madness, my uncles filth, my very name. He is right. I would be free. I return to London in three days. I must secure the maid when I go back. We will never have this chance again! Will you? No. It would be foul. Putting a girl in the mad house. The girl's despicable, a thief. She would do it to you. My uncle will be here at any moment. You must not open that. You belong out there! Not locked up here with this filth! Go! Go! There was an obstacle to Mr. Rivers plan. My maid Agnes. The way he painted that fruit, Miss. You could eat it. He has an eye for it. And for you Miss. Are you all right, Miss Lilly? I think she may have twisted her ankle, Sir. Really, Agnes. I have not. Oh well, we must take no chance of that, Miss Lilly. It's treacherous ground here. Allow me to assist you. I cannot just dismiss Agnes. Leave it to me. Agnes, every time that I've looked into her eyes, I was thinking of you! Mr. Way, Mr. Way! Agnes! I was shaken by what we had done to Agnes. But my uncle had trained me to well to feel it for long. Mr. Rivers returned to London. Recommending the new maid, whose character was as false as her courtesy. Here is the evil little fingersmith who's going to make us rich. Remember, she has to become you. And you her. You have one month until I return. Is it all right, Miss? Very satisfactory. She has come to Briar to swallow me up. Like clutch of eggs. What do London ladies do this time of day? Make visits, to other ladies like you Miss. Ladies like me? There are no ladies like me. But I grew used to her, to her life, her warmth. She was not the gullible girl of a villaineers plot. But a girl with a history, with hates and likings. Yet to escape from Briar I must despise her. Must deceive her. Miss. It's not bad news, is it Miss? Mr. Rivers is coming tomorrow. Oh lord! I must change our dresses. This one for sure. I want you to have that. Me Miss? But this is your best dress? I want to show Mr. Rivers that... That I do so much approve of you. Of his choice. Oh Miss! That's one of the nicest things any one's ever said to me. But really, I can't. I can't, really, Sue. She looked so beautiful. I had to keep telling myself, over and over again, what she planned to do to me. To go on. Oh my goodness, Miss! I look like a real lady. She changed even my uncles books for me. I thought them dead but the words came suddenly alive. Full of meaning. She must think we love one another! Oh damn it, Maud! There's another hour gone. In two days I will leave. And I will never see you again. Wake her up, she'll burn. Let go of me. I've lost half for this. Lost it to a wretched little fingersmith. Let me.. She'd laugh in your face if she knew. If I told her. You mustn't. I agree. Do you want to stay here forever? Appear to love me. Marry me! I can't. Maud! - Miss Maud? - Please. Miss Maud? She's coming. Tell me.. Tell me a way.. Tell you what, Miss? Tell me, on her wedding night, what must a wife do? Aren't you a pearl. Everything I say to myself is changed. She has touched the life of me. The quake of me. But she is ashamed. He'll be leaving here tonight Miss. She didn't love me. her feelings were false, part of a trap. Why should I not trap her to escape from this foul place. The night I escaped, I needed to do one last thing. How fast your heart beats Maud. I told you I don't want to hurt you. But we must show the marks of true love. Are you by any chance bleeding to save me the pain? Do you mean to insult me in every possible way? Hold out the sheet. The fashionable couple on their wedding night. Sit down here Susan. Miss Smith. Were you ever a maid with Lady Stonely of Mayfair? No Sir. That's one of poor Mrs. Rivers fantasies. Ever since the wedding night she's made up these stories. Fiction... Yes. Does she read books? Her passion is books. There you have it Graves. The over exposure of women to literature breeds unnatural fantasies. - Indeed. - Unnatural? Oh Sir, you don't know the worst of it. It's not your shame, Susan, your guilt. You did nothing to invite the gross intentions my wife and her madness tried to force upon you. Is this true? Please, these tears speak themselves. Come on Susan! You are not to blame. I'm so sorry you were exposed to such horrible things. Speak, damn you, speak! Oh my own poor Mistress. My heart was breaking. That is my story. That is what brought me here. You were very convincing Maud. Don't speak to me or I shall kill you. I have betrayed her. Mrs. Rivers. Sit Mrs. Rivers over there, if you will. You see, they tricked me. She's fit, can't do it. Hold her steady, man! She may pull off her joints! We will not have you lying here, Mrs. Rivers. You can choke yourself and it's no business of ours. Chew off your tongue if you like. We prefer them quite here. Welcome to London. How could we have done this to her? Believe me, she'll be better taken care of than where she came from. Are we here? Is this our house? I thought for a moment that was the Briar bell. We're near the river. Chelsea? Not quite. Lant Street. Wow... Come on or I shall leave you here. We cannot live grandly, Maud, until we have your money. We'll just wait for the lawyers to release it. Do you want to stay out here and freeze? Mr. Ibbs. Mrs. Maud Rivers. Very pleased to meet you, Mrs. Rivers. Do come in, make yourself at home. Couldn't you imagine a better night than this, Mr. Ibbs? This is a very good night, gentleman. A very good night indeed. Let me take the ladies cloak. Do beg me a pardon. Who's she? How much are you going to pop that for, Mr. Ibbs. Richard, Richard? Good boy! Marry him, Miss. Mr. Rivers loves you. What kept me alive was the thought that Mrs. Sucksby would find me. And then I would find Maud. And kill her. She lived here, Sue, didn't she? Will you stop touching me! What a fool I've been. What an idiot. This is Sue's house of thieves, isn't it? Honest thieves, dear. Get me a cab. Handsome or haggeny? Don't you dare talk to me like that! Oh she's got a dander, ain't she? If you don't get me a cab I shall walk. I shall find a policeman. Never there when you want them, my dear. Not in this fog. Come on. - John. - Give us the bag. Gentleman, throw it. - Get her! - That's enough! If you don't let me go I will kill your baby. I have come too far for... this. John! I mean it. I will. Get me a cab. I will do it. My dear. I've been caring for unwanted babies for years. At the moment I'm looking after seven babies. Now you can make it six if you like. Or five. No one would miss them. Come on, come on. Go see to the fire, John. Make some tea, Dainty. Strengthen her up a bit. Go on with the mark there, Betty. My poor hands have suffered so much recently. Mrs. Furbisher, Mrs. Furbisher? Do you want the kirk? Where you from? London. I'm a little out of touch. And the season's only just beginning. Are you out? No I ain't. So young. I'm not much in. In... That is the first two word I've heard you say, Mrs. Rivers. In. Keep telling the truth like that, Mrs. Rivers, and you may well be out. Before the end of the season. In! In! In! I couldn't bare to wake you, dear. Feed the babies upstairs, Dainty. Now... Oh... Come on now. I can see you're a spirited girl. But you can't imagine we mean you any harm. I can't imagine you mean me any kind of good... when you insist on keeping me here when I so clearly wish to leave! Just hear the grammar in that, Mr. Ibbs. Here, let me take your glove. Her uncle taught her to be very particular about her fingers. Made you read a lot of filthy French books. Did he touch dear, were he oughtn't? Oh never mind. Better your own than a stranger I always say. I'll get you a nice cup of tea. You plan to kill me, don't you? It would mean nothing to me, but she would not allow it. But has she got to do with this? She sent me to Briar. This is her plan, she controls everything. How does she know about my fortune? From some servant? From her. You're liars. You're cheats. How could you know my mother? I was born in an asylum. Dear, oh dear. We're not going to put that together again, are we? No you weren't born in the asylum dear. You was born here. Marianne, that was the ladies name, wasn't it dear? She ran away from Briar just like you did only her gentleman didn't do the decent thing, not like your husband. She got my name from a woman in the Borough that did the girls in their complaints. Did she ever have complaints, Mr. Ibbs? Too far gone to get rid of the poor creature. She was terrified, poor lamb. It was her father and her brother, your uncle Lilly, they were after her. It's why I made up a bed in front of the fire, like I did for you. And she had her baby right here. Oh! How Marianne loved her little baby girl! Poor little scrap! Then we heard it, didn't we? - The carriage. - Your uncle had found her. He was hammering at the door. And Marianne, she was sobbing. I must name her, I must! But not with a name like I've been cursed with But a plain name. I shall call her.. Maud. Susan. As God as my witness. She cried I don't want to put my baby through what I've been through. Take my baby Susie and bring her up yourself, Mrs. Sucksby. Poor, and honest. She begged and pleaded and It would have tightened her heart to stone to refuse her so... before Mr. Ibbs opened the door I gave her the baby that I was holding. Because she was born on the same day. Take her, quick! That's it. So your brother thinks she's yours. She has the name of a lady after all. Her name is Maud. My name is Ethel. My name is... You must believe me! Susan! Susan! I believe you, Thank you! That's a lot of comfort, Mrs. Rivers. Miss Wilson believes there are creatures on the moon. Damn you! I told you that in strict confidence! I'm not Maud Rivers, I'm Susan Smith! There you are, back with us. I hope you don't oppose this sherry; miss Lilly, sherry in a ladies chamber I could never agree to it but, a bit of honest brandy is a bracer. She's got a good mouth for spirits. I know you are lying. No, you haven't heard anything yet, Maud. I'm an orphan. My mother was mad. And her pa and brother... preferred the madhouse to shame. She went mad when they put her in there. I'll say.. I knew then I was mad... only the maddest... who's brains were over heated were given the plunge. I'm her husband, she'll do as I tell her! Leave it to me, gentleman. We'll do it my way. She'll do it, believe me. Well, I always say brandy is the best sleeping draft Here. If Marianne wasn't my mother then who was? God alone knows, dear. I took foundlings you see, I have the goodness of my heart and you was one of them. This! is Sue's mother. Then, how do I have a fortune? Sit down. Marianne took pity on you, a poor foundling came to a lonely old place like Briar. There was plenty for both she said. Poor woman might have needed it, wouldn't change her mind. She left half to you and half to her own daughter Susan. Due on yours and Susan’s twenty-first birthdays in one month's time. And you planned to get all of it? Oh, no no, it's Mrs. Sucksbys scheme. She gets the major share, I get a mere three thousand pounds. Did Sue know what you've planned? No dear. You're not any villains, you're fools! I won't sign anything and Susan's in no position to. No, you're right. Sue, or should I say your poor mistress... my wife Mrs. Rivers is in no condition to sign for her, is she? I'll be forced to sign for her. Thanks to your help. What have I done? Damn you, I told you to keep away from me! Leave her! And what do you want with me? Well, we still have to collect Susan’s half of the money. You want me to be Sue. Oh, she's sharp Mr. Ibbs. I don't believe you. It's because I'm nothing. I don't even know my name. After I've signed you're planning to kill me, don't you? No dear. You're one of us now. And you're a lady. You would be my companion. Because I need a real lady like you to show me how to become one. When you have the money. You are ridiculous. You should both be in the mad house. Pass me off as Sue? Mr. Ibbs will tell the lawyer he's know you all his life. She is your legal guardian. The doctors knows you was a maid, you have no friends in London, no money, no name even. You, as you say, are nothing. And you will do as I say. I will tell the lawyer. How you plotted to swindle an innocent girl? Are you truly so wicked? So vile? That is vile! Poverty. You think life is hard with money? Well, you should try it without. It is one month before your twenty-first birthday one week of barely living will help you make up your mind. Two weeks after the plunge I was prepared to be anyone they wanted me to be. Only the thought of Mrs. Sucksby kept me going. Mrs. Sucksby used to say people ain't never interested in the truth, Sue. But in what they want to hear. I am Mrs. Maud Rivers. This is truly remarkable. I've got you to thank, doctor. You've looked after me so well. You would like to see Mr. Rivers? I need to see him, oh, my poor husband, and my maid. What... Who has put up with so much. How I long to see them both again! And so you shall. Dr Graves... A little test, Mrs. Rivers. Please... write your name. I think it begins with a different letter, doesn't it? Remarkable! the delusion even extends to her motor functions, it is there we will break her. Once your own writing comes back to you, your husband will be here to sign you out. Rivers? He has to sign me out? Rivers? I thought about Sue every day, as Mrs. Sucksby stroke off the days to my twenty first birthday. If only I could escape and get to Sue. There you are, Mrs?... Rivers. Well done. Did you like her? Sue? She turned out bad, didn't she, but? I don't know. I miss her sometimes. She was fun. We used to have a good laugh. Here, you do it. What is it? I don't feel very well. You never do! Is that what they call a ladies constitution? I suppose it must. Ahh! I need to go to the privy. I don't want to bother you. It's no bother, madam. It will be if you're not here when Mrs. S gets back. Dainty, I'm really not well. Come out then. It's my time of the... It rushes! I can't leave you. Open the door. The men might come. But Mrs. Sucksby told me not to leave you. Maud? Please. Help! Please help me! What's happened? I need to go to a hotel. Come on. Rotner Street! O dear, just look at you! Such pretty little feet. And such finely turned ankles. - Let me go. - Now, now. Help! - Don't be silly. - Help! I'm only trying to.. Ahh! Don't think that I wasn't only trying to help you! I walked through the night. Running away if anyone approached me. My thin slippers tore, and my feet were cut and bleeding before I found what I was looking for. The only street that I had heard of in London. The one my uncle's books came from. Miss! Miss! You can't go in there! Mr. Halltree! Maud! Please help me. What are you doing here? You were always saying... That was at Briar before what happened. You mustn't come here. You came through the shop, did the police see you? I won't faint. I promise you. Your feet! Good God! Mrs. Rivers! You have a visitor. Are you here today or not? Don't you recognize him? We didn't know each other from Adam. Then, it was the little boot boy from Briar. It was that look what saved me. He recognized me! He knew who I was. And I knew what I must do in that instant. Oh Charles! Charles, how wonderful to see you! Don't say who I am, and don't go. Oh Miss! I'm not Miss Lilly anymore. You're.. This is a mad house, ain't it? Do you know who I am? It's Miss Smith, ain't it? Bless you! Miss Smith who's.. You mustn't call me that here! That was Briar, Charles.. Mr. Lilly had a stroke after what happened. I'm so sorry to hear that. Gave me the creeps, he did. Mr. Wader Stuart beat me so much I ran away. I've got no job, no character. I wanted to find Mr. Rivers who was so kind to me also. He said I polished his boots better than anyone else in the whole world. And my auntie told me that Mrs. Rivers was living here... and I thought this was a grand house. Your auntie? Mrs. Cream. Where Mr. and Mrs. Rivers stayed after their wedding. Five minutes to tea ladies! Do you want to see Mr. Rivers? - More than anything. - Anything else in the world? So do I. And Mrs. Rivers. Ladies, ladies, ladies! Have you money? Five shillings and.. Locksmith. Get one inch black key. And a file. ONE INCH BLACK KEY! Bring it when you next visit. And I do hope Mr. Lilly improves. I must go in file now. Do come again soon, Charles. Thank you. Rivers keeps you without shoes? So I should not have run away. You cannot run away from your husband. There is someone here he's done a great wrong too. I must save her! I thought if I can stay at your house.. My house? That is impossible, my dear. I have wife and children. I see. Not now! Rivers is entirely to blame. Having taken you he might at least have kept you close. He saw what you were. And what am I? Mr. Halltree? Ah, Thomas. Really, you must not. You seem to forget. I've seen much worse at Briar. Whip your backside until the blood runs down your... Second part down wrong font. They set it in Clarandon, and the rest is in Garamond I think. You're right, so it is. I could work here for you. Impossible. Please. You have been kind. I think you are kind. I beg you, if you could find me some room, at a hotel. - Anywhere. - It's out of the question. Lant street was foul, it was the last place I wanted to go. But I had nowhere else. Mrs. Sucksby! Nobody say a word, but a word. Find gentleman, tell him she's been found. Mr. Ibbs, kettle. Oh my! Dear girl, come on. Come in! Come in get warm. Get gentleman! Be quick! Come here. I knew you'd come home. Please don't touch me, stifle me, smother me... pretend to love me. Pretend? When... Sue's... mother came here... People will tell you that... that I had a baby of my own which died. At least... that's the story around here. Nobody questioned it. Babies do die in Lant Street in particular. Many of time I've sat here... thinking how I last held you when you was a few days old. Imagining how you'd grown. Your eyes. The shape of your nose I'd pictured exact. The paleness of the skin but the hair... the hair I... I always thought... would be fairer. Dear girl. My own... My own dear girl. To have you back... after all these years. Ladies, ladies! Remember, meet me at the wall and don't be late. Of all the burglars' mates God could have sent me... Charles was the worse by a long chalk. Here we are, people want to get to sleep. She said your hands are like poor jobes. - I never! - That makes it swell or what? I never! After all my kindness, Betty. I never, nurse Bacon. She did! Oh God help us, look at what you've done now! And my flesh's blazing. I'll put the cream on your hands, nurse Bacon. I'll do it, I will. It's a small key. Shut up Betty! You'll hurt, Mrs. Wittshire, if you sing another bleeding verse!.. Where are you hurrying? Pee! Charles, Charles, Charles! You said two o'clock! Come on! What kept me going was the thought of Mrs. Sucksbys face when I turned up at Lant Street. And then I thought of Maud... wherever she was. I must go on Miss, or your luck will desert you... A journey of the heart. Oh! Sue, forgive me! Stay here. Miss. Come back Miss! Hello? Hoy, you there! Stop, thief! What are you doing? Come back here! What's going on? Turn around. You took them clothes without asking. I had to, didn't I? Would you rather I got picked up? And never saw Mr. Rivers again? Don't look at me like that. I've never done anything like that before in my life. Don't you think I feel terrible? Stealing from poor people like that? Oh! damn her! Damn her! I don't suppose you want a piece of this pie, then? Charles? There are times in this life when we have to do things that we don't want to do. I'll ask Mr. Rivers to go back to that very cottage... and pay back every penny for the things we've taken and more. Will you? Yeah, that's just the sort of thing that Mr. Rivers would do. Here. Can't believe that in a few days time you will be twenty one years old. I'll make myself a cup.. Oh thank you. Thank you dear. Who was my father? Mr. Ibbs? No dear. Your father was a sailor lost at sea, well, lost to me, dear. Smell it! Smell it, Miss? London! Oh, the rotten, horrible, bleeding, stink of it. - Miss Smith? - I ain't Miss Smith. I ain't Miss bleeding Rivers. I'm Susan Trinder! I thought you said that we were going to see Mr. Rivers? This is horrible! This isn't horrible, the country is horrible. - This is where I live. - This place? Where does Mr... Tommy Joslin. Conindrent, always a good poke. Go on, get in. What is it? Miss Trinder, what is it? Don't cry, Miss. There. Happy birthday! Did you take that from the cottage? Why did you take it? Why? It's because that's what I am. You're kind, you're a ladies maid. I'm a fingersmith, you stupid idiot! A thief! Well, I don't want to be a thief. I want to be with Mr Rivers. You said you promised. Mr. Rivers? Mr. Rivers is the biggest prick unhung! Mr. Rivers, Mr. Rivers got me put in a mad house. Happy birthday Maud! And to our absent friend Sue, might the day bring good fortune to us all. Leave her alone, can't you? Stop beating her. Get out. I will order madam's carriage. Dear Mrs. Sucksby, gentleman and that... bitch has cheated me and put me in the mad house. Send a signal with this boy and help me. Go on, remember what you've got selling. Wait, wait. Put... I love you... as I always will... like a daughter. Half a sovereign, son. No, it's got to be the works. I'll open it up, hang on. She took it. Mrs. Sucksby? Miss Maud. And she gave me this. She's mocking me. What is it? The two of hearts? I'll mock her. Well, he gave me a pound for the watch. Come on. Look who's here. Mrs. Sucksby, visitor. Someone who's fingersmithing cutlery and jewellery! Is that what you've told him? That I stole your jewellery? You've got some bleeding cheek! You nearly broke Mrs. Sucksbys heart! Give me the knife! Give it to me! I've got no argue with you John, or you Dainty. Sue, dear, you ain't yourself. I ain't Mrs. Sucksby, not after what they did to me. Sue, leave now. You'd like me to do that, wouldn't you? Before the gentleman gets back. You don't know what's really happened. I know you've got my clothes. Even got my bleeding bangles! Why? Isn't your fortune enough? Isn't what you did to me enough? Please go! You put me in the mad house. You planned to put me there! I wish I had! To cheat me, to kill me! I will, I will kill you! You old cow! You've been down on me ever since the day I was born! Touch me again and you'll know it. I never, I never I never believed you cut with the jewellery. I went along with the others because they'd thought me a sentimental old fool, But I knew deep down.. Give me the knife. - Did you? - I did, I did! I thought no, not my Sue. You brought me up as your own daughter. I thought I'd never see you again. But I had a man out looking for you. I knew you would! Sue! Your carriage awaits. Hello Charles. My boots have never been the same. Sue? She's just told me what you've done to her. So you'd better go. You found me out, I'm a villain Charles. Honest to god, Mr. Rivers, I never meant to. Get out. Don't let him go. He'll only go to Dr Christie! Stay, stay. Stay, stay. There, there. You're alright now. There, there... Oh damn it, tell the poor bitch how we used her. Richard don't say any more. Oh my dear wife. Have you no feelings at all? Not that I know of. But I know you have. Damn it Maud, what does it matter to you? You're a fully fledged villain now, you don't have to care about either of them! Gentleman, enough! Will you... Now I see the resemblance. No, you see nothing. Nothing. Why did I never suspect it? No wonder you kicked and cursed and she let you. Oh, this is rich! Did you know Mr. Ibbs? No he knows nothing. Stop it. Stop it! Grace? My heart! Your heart? You have a heart Mrs. Sucksby? Feel it here! I should get your daughter to do that. Grace! Grace! She hit me. Get me a surgeon! No surgeons! God damn you! Charlie? Murder, murder! Help, help me! Stop the boy! He's gone. Who did this? She's done it. I saw her. Wait... What happened was the knife was on the table... Maud started to say something else. But nobody heard her. I've done it. Lord knows I'm sorry for it right now. But I've done it. And these girls here, they're innocent girls that never harmed no one. Maud said she'd killed him. But nobody believed her. Because she was a lady. And a lunatic. Gentleman weren’t a gentleman after all. But a draper's son. Frederick Bunt. The papers said he had been brutally cut down in his manhood. And girls put his picture next to their hearts. I didn't see Maud before she disappeared. Good job. Or I had probably ended up with Mrs. Sucksby. Mrs. Sucksby was so game when the judge put on the black cap, and sentenced her to death. She always looked behind me. As if she was expecting someone else to be with me. But I wanted her for myself. Quite alone. That's good. Just you and me... as it used to be. Oh! Mrs. Sucksby! How shall I do without you? Better dear girl. How can you say that? Watch me tomorrow. Don't cover your eyes. And Sue, should you ever hear hard things of me when I am gone, think back too. We had a collection. It's not very much but... Thank you. How is she? Game... Thanks Tommy. A lady to see you. She won't give me her name. No one will listen to me. You must tell them. If you only came to say that, then go. I've done what I've done and that's the end of it. You must tell them I killed him. No. I was wrong to send you away. And I was wrong to do that to a girl like Sue, a jewel. I hope she never finds out. I will never tell her. I came to see you as well as... Did you? Of course I did. Oh dear. Mother, mother. I wish... Never mind. Just is. Mrs. Sucksby's daughter, isn't it? Sue... Sue? S - U... I, Marianne Lilly of Bear Court... Briar Court sound of mind though feeble of body... commit my infant daughter Susan... to the guardianship of Mrs. Grace Sucksby. In exchange for which Mrs. Sucksby commits into my care her dear daughter Maud. Get some water Dainty! Bit of a shock, is it, Sue? I should says so, Tommy. I should say so. Look at me, Sue. Come here. I heard that Mr. Lilly had died. And so I returned to Briar, to see if I could find something to show me where Maud had gone. Have you come to kill me? No Maud! How could I harm you? I know everything. No... you know nothing. You don't know me at all. How delicious was the glow on her ivory shoulders, as I forced her back on the couch. I scarcely knew what I was about everything, now, was in active exertion. Tongues, lips, bellies, thighs, arms, legs, bottom. Every part in a voluptuous motion... Are they all like that? Every single one. I'm at it myself now. I must earn a living some how. I'm not the good, sweet girl you thought I was. This... is what I am. I know you must hate me... hate me. I don't hate you. I'm.. I'm so sorry for what I did to you, Sue! I'm sorry... True to us both then. I found this in her dress. Someone read it out to me. The money is yours. Did you know who my mother was from the very beginning? No. Not till I got to London. And Mrs. Sucksby never wanted you to find out. She loved you. She did, Sue, she... She said... how wrong she was to... try and turn... a jewel like you and... A jewel? Turn a girl like you into a common place girl. I killed her. I pleaded with Mrs. Sucksby to tell the truth... but all she would say was... that she had done it and... and that was the end. I know. What a mess you're making of yourself, ay? What does it say? They're full of words saying... How I want you. How.. I love you.
