He helps her whenever he can and they grow very fond of each other. Angelo, the overseer, is attracted by Bianca, and becomes over-demonstrative. Beppo objects. In the scuffle, Angelo falls, wounded, and Beppo flees. He goes to Bianca's hut for refuge. She begs him to escape at once and gives him what little money she has. His pursuers on his track, he hurriedly leaves, forgetting in his haste his bundle of clothes, which Bianca conceals, to avoid being accused of harboring him. Beppo goes to a distant city and there succeeds in making himself a very prosperous vendor of fruits. Bianca, being left alone without a protector, is subject to much insult from Angelo, until she too makes up her mind to escape his indignities. In her little shack she wishes she were a boy, and suddenly remembering Beppo's old clothes, she disguises herself in male attire, makes her way, by riding on freight cars, to the city to which Beppo has fled. Without money, among strange people, she is almost starving, and not recognizing Beppo as he stands at one of the crossings with his pushcart, steals some of his fruit. She is caught, arrested and taken to the police court, to which she is followed by Beppo, who wishes to make a complaint against her. The officers oblige her and the others in the courtroom to remove their hats. As she takes hers off, her long, black hair falls down over her shoulders, and he immediately recognizes her as his dearly-beloved Bianca. He withdraws his charge, and after telling their stories to the justice, who is neither pleased nor interested, the two young lovers leave the station house together to start life anew as man and wife, happy in the anticipation of the fulfillment of their troth.
