ACT THREE

FADE IN:

SCENE 14
INT. CAVERNS OF CHAOS

Shot of animated/drawing of the Grox cuts to live action of the creature. It moves towards Greystone and Blackpool, swinging its arms at them threateningly. The princes both circle away from the beast carefully.

GREYSTONE

You stab it behind the ear!

BLACKPOOL

Which one?

GREYSTONE

The left. I think.

BLACKPOOL

Youíd better be right Ė weíll only get once chance at it.

GREYSTONE

Ah! We donít have a weapon!

BLACKPOOL

Oh, yes we do.

Shot of Blackpool pulling a knife out of his leg boot.

GREYSTONE

For once Iím glad you fight dirty!

BLACKPOOL

Look out!

The Grox moves after them, rushing towards them. They move away quickly.

GREYSTONE

Remember the quarterstaff move I always beat you with?

BLACKPOOL

It didnít work the last time you tried it.

GREYSTONE

Letís hope heís not as good as you.

Greystone distracts the Grox and Blackpool swings at it with the knife, managing to get a hit behind the ear. Greystone and Blackpool move backwards and fall. The Grox screams in agony and then falls on the floor of the chamber, dead. Its blade fingers narrowly missing Greystonesís leg. Greystone pulls his leg away quickly. They stand and Blackpool moves to get his knife.

GREYSTONE

Donít remove the knife. Youíll revive it.

Blackpool and Erik look at each other, then the fallen Grox. They exit the chamber.

 

SCENE 15
EXT. TAVERN

Shot of exterior of the tavern. It is evening. Marko exits the tavern and walks towards the hitching post towards Ben, his horse. Marko leans on the supporting beam of the covered entrance talking to Ben.

MARKO

How ya doiní big fella?

Ben WHICKERS to Marko and then SNORTS.

MARKO
(continuing)

Come on, I wasnít in there that long. Yeah, it is weird being alone. Donít worry though. Southwind and Erik will be back pretty soon.

The Wizard Traquill appears in a shimmer of silver sparks.

MARKO
(continuing)

Come on.

TRAQUILL

Youíre a nice boy, Marko.

Marko turns and yelps in surprise.

MARKO

Donít sneak up on me like that, Uncle Tray.

Shot pans back to Traquill in his chair and Marko standing next to him.

TRAQUILL

Relax, will you? Youíre too nervous. Ah, kids.

Traquill (6_78)

MARKO

All right, Iím a bit edgy. Howís King Greystone?

TRAQUILL

Not good. I hope Erik gets back soon. But thatís not what I came to talk about. Justin left here with a woman, right?

MARKO

Boy, Iíll say. A real knock-out named Serena.

TRAQUILL

Sheís a knock-out, all right. But her nameís Bethel. Sheís an evil witch. I know what theyíre up to.

MARKO

A witch. Whatís goiní on, Unc?

TRAQUILL

A big bunch of bad stuff. Look, thereís no time for this. Just bring Justin to me at the castle when he gets back. Sheís probably going to zap him good.

MARKO

All right, Iíll bring Ďem.

TRAQUILL

Something else, but I canít remember.

MARKO

Canít?

TRAQUILL

Nope. Well, never mind. See ya.

Traquill and his chair disappear in another shower of silver sparks.

 

SCENE 16
EXT. TAVERN

Shot of Marko standing next to a supporting post of the overhead canopy of the tavern. He is pondering his Uncle Traquillís appearance.

MARKO

Something else . . .

There is a WHISTLE of something being thrown and a dagger thuds into the post near Markoís head. It quivers there a moment.

MARKO
(continuing)

Have anything to do with a knife?

Shot of Prince Geoffrey Blackpool. He is staring in Markoís direction and is angry he missed.

MARCKO
(continuing)

Ah, ya missed, Geoffrey.

GEOFFREY

You wonít live to talk about it.

Geoffrey draws his sword smoothly, as does Marko. Geoffrey attacks Marko fiercely, yelling with each attempted strike. Marko defends himself very easily, even with a bit of boredom.

MARKO

Youíre not even trying, Geoffrey.

GEOFFREY

Youíre a dead man.

Geoffrey tries to run Marko through with a direct charge, blade towards Marko. Marko steps aside quickly and Geoffrey rushes past him. Marko slaps Geoffreyís backside with the flat of his blade. Geoffrey yelps in surprise, then attacks again and Marko crosses blades with him, shoving Geoffrey back towards a large stack of wine barrels outside the tavern. They are nose to nose. Geoffrey canít move away.

Geoffrey and Marko (6_81)

MARKO

Start talking, Geoff. Whatís this about? What are you doing down here?

GEOFFREY

Iím not talking, Marko. Not Ďtil weíve broken the western perimeter.

MARKO

Thatís gonna be really hard with warriors like you, pal.

GEOFFREY

Iím not done yet.

Geoffrey smirks and moves to the side, shoving the wine barrels loose. They begin to fall towards Marko.

MARKO

Oh yes you are.

The wine barrels continue to fall onto Marko and he falls to the ground, buried under them.

GEOFFREY

You lose . . .

Geoffrey sheathes his sword with a satisfied smirk and a sharp click.

GEOFFREY
(continuing)

. . . pal.

Geoffrey strides off into the night.

 

SCENE 17
INT. CAVERNS OF CHAOS

Far away shot of Greystone and Blackpool traveling along the path along a cliff passageway. The view shows the sheer drop if they veer off the pathway.

GREYSTONE

You know the source of the Crimson Fever as well as I do, Dirk.

BLACKPOOL

What difference does it make?

GREYSTONE

We get out of here, we could be fighting the same enemy instead of each other.

Shot moves to close shot of Greystone and Blackpool. Greystone is leading the way along the path.

BLACKPOOL

Grow up, Erik. Youíre still a naÔve little boy. Whatever reason for this incident, it does nothing to change the fact that I hate you and what you stand for.

Greystone stops and faces Blackpool.

GREYSTONE

I donít understand you. Thereís enough room for everybody, but you want it all. Why canít you just appreciate what you have?

BLACKPOOL

Very easy for you to say. The south is comfortable. It has plenty of food. My people have to suffer the vicious weather of the north. Theyíre starving while youíre going to parties.

GREYSTONE

They starve because you give all your food to your soldiers. You starve your own people. When we gave you food you paid us back with bloodshed.

BLACKPOOL

Save your speeches for a fool, Erik. Iím not interested.

GREYSTONE

Youíll never beat us.

BLACKPOOL

Listen to me, Greystone. We will ride through you like a hurricane in the forest. Weíll knock you down, we will crush you and we will salt the earth where you fell. I have no more tolerance for you or your band of fat philosophers.

GREYSTONE

Thank the gods weíre chained together, Dirk. Or youíd be falling to your death.

A large, hairy spider begins to crawl up and over Blackpoolís right shoulder armor.

BLACKPOOL

If thereís a death in here, it will be yours. Now letís go.

Greystone sees the spider and watches it carefully, his eyes widen.

GREYSTONE

Donít move.

BLACKPOOL

What is it?

GREYSTONE

Black Phalia.

Blackpool looks down very carefully. The spider is now on the arm of his leather armor. He swallows nervously.

BLACKPOOL

I hate spiders.

GREYSTONE

Sssh. Stay very still.

BLACKPOOL

UmmÖ

Blackpool whimpers nervously as the spider crosses over his chest armor towards his left arm.

Dirk Blackpool (6_83)

BLACKPOOL
(continuing)

I canít stand it.

GREYSTONE

Hold on. If you donít move, it wonít sting you.

Blackpool canít stand it anymore and grabs the spider in his gauntlets and yells.

BLACKPOOL

Nooo!

Blackpool flings the spider over the ledge, loosing his balance and tumbling over the edge himself. Greystone grabs onto the chain that binds them and hangs on tightly. Shot dissolves to another far away shot of Greystone leaning against the wall, trying to hang onto the chain.

GREYSTONE

Grab the edge. Get your weight off the chain.

Blackpool begins to haul himself up the edge of the cliff passage, grunting with the effort. Greystone helps pull him up by the chain. Blackpool makes it over the edge onto the pathway and both of them slump back on the path, sitting down, resting against the wall.

 

SCENE 18
INT. CAVERNS OF CHAOS

Shot of Greystone and Blackpool resting against the wall of the cliff pathway. Blackpool looks somewhat stunned. He sighs heavily.

BLACKPOOL

I nearly killed myself.

GREYSTONE

Relax. Everybodyís afraid of something.

Blackpool blinks and begins to talk almost as if Greystone is not there.

BLACKPOOL

When I was a boy, I was trapped inside a secret room at the old castle for three days. A room filled with spiders. I screamed and I yelled but nobody could hear me.

GREYSTONE

What did you do?

BLACKPOOL

I began stepping on them. I mustíve crushed thousands of them. At the end, their bodies were so deep they covered my boots. I finally passed out from exhaustion. Being bitten. I had to lie in them.

GREYSTONE

Youíre lucky youíre alive.

BLACKPOOL

Vector found me. When he saw me lying there, he laughed.

GREYSTONE

Hmm. Nice guy.

BLACKPOOL

I nearly died. It was months before I got out of bed. I hate spiders. Hate, not fear.

Shot of more spiders coming down the stone stairs towards Greystone and Blackpool.

GREYSTONE

Well, as long as you hate them so much, can we get out of here?

BLACKPOOL

I really should rest for a moment.

Greystone nods at Blackpool, then points down the pathway.

GREYSTONE

Take a look down the ledge.

Blackpool looks down the ledge and his face registers disgust.

BLACKPOOL

All right. Iím ready.

GREYSTONE

You sure you donít want to rest some more?

BLACKPOOL

Letís go.

Blackpool and Greystone both stand.

GREYSTONE

Whatever you say.

Blackpool moves past Greystone with a bit of a push, leading the way and they disappear from view.

 

SCENE 19
INT. BETHELíS COTTAGE

Shot of cottage interior. Tight shot of stairway. There are a number of lit candles since it is evening. A large black panther pelt with attached head faces the camera. Shot pans back and we see Justin coming down the stairs adjusting his clothing. Bethel is lying comfortably on a couch in the foreground of the shot, her leg arranged so her gown falls away from it seductively.

JUSTIN

I had a swell time, Serena. But, better be moviní on down the road.

Justin belts on his sash.

BETHEL

Oh. Iím disappointed. Youíre going to go and leave me all alone?

JUSTIN

Iíll be back. Like a summer cold. Once you catch it, you canít get rid of it.

Bethel half rises on the couch and looks at him.

BETHEL

Justin? Have you ever considered taking a wife?

Bethel (6_89)

JUSTIN

You mean one of my own?

BETHEL

You know what I mean.

JUSTIN

Ah, letís see. Thought of marriage did pass through my mind. One time. Sílong time ago. Iíd just won the Tri-Kingdom Drinkiní Contest.

Bethel sits up and smiles at Justin.

BETHEL

Would you consider it with someone really special?

Justin moves over to Bethel and smiles, then kisses her.

JUSTIN

Good night, Serena.

BETHEL

I could make you very happy, Prince Greystone.

Justin picks up his metal wristbands and puts them on.

JUSTIN

You already have, sugar. Now, adios.

BETHEL

Wait. Justin.

Bethel moves in front of Justin, blocking his exit.

JUSTIN

I really have to go.

BETHEL

Listen to me. My name is not Serena. Itís Bethel.

JUSTIN

Beth-el? The witch Bethel?

BETHEL

Yes.

JUSTIN

Son of a gun. I never dated a real witch before. I kinda like it.

Justin grins at her.

BETHEL

Well, I was sent by Vector to seduce you.

Bethel puts her arms around Justinís neck.

BETHEL
(continuing)

But, um, something happened to me.

JUSTIN

Was I here when it happened?

BETHEL

Um. When I kissed you I realized I couldnít go through with it.

JUSTIN

No kiddiní?

Justin and Bethel kiss again.

BETHEL

I think Iím in love with you, Justin. I donít want you to leave me. Ever.

JUSTIN

Well, thatís gonna be a problem, darliní. We come from different sides of the forest.

BETHEL

Iíd give up everything for you. Iíd even forsake my magic.

JUSTIN

This is all real interestiní but thereís one thing wrong.

BETHEL

What?

JUSTIN

I donít believe you for a second.

Justin grabs Bethelís waist and picks her up, swinging her to the side and out of his way.

JUSTIN
(continuing)

So, if youíll excuse me, I got a hot date with a deck of cards.

Justin bows to Bethel briefly and moves towards the doorway. Bethel takes her monocle from her bodice and zaps Justin with it. A beam of purple light hits him, creating a purple glow around him. He stops, frozen in place, enchanted.

 

SCENE 19a
INT. BETHELíS COTTAGE

Shot of Bethel crossing in front of Justin. He is frozen in place and is bewitched by the blast from her monocle.

BETHEL

OK, cutie. Hereís the deal. Tomorrow morning youíre gonna announce our engagement. A very short engagement. And if things go according to plan, you and I are gonna be King and Queen of Camarand before the new moon. You got it?

JUSTIN

Yes.

Justin is obviously under her spell. He speaks slowly and without expression.

BETHEL

Good. Now, hit the road.

Justin moves away from her and goes to the door. He exits.

 

SCENE 20
EXT. CAVERNS OF CHAOS

Shot of entrance at Caverns. Shot dissolves to Greystone and Blackpool walking along the pathway on the edge of the cliffs.

GREYSTONE

Where does this thing end?

BLACKPOOL

I canít see. Itís too dark.

There is a GRINDING NOISE of stone moving on stone.

GREYSTONE

Whatís that?

BLACKPOOL

I donít know. Push.

GREYSTONE

Itís the wall. Itís moving. Push backwards. Push!

BLACKPOOL

I canít stop it.

Greystone growls and strains against the stone.

GREYSTONE

Ah, put your back into it. Push!

Both Greystone and Blackpool are slowly pushed forward and over the edge of the narrow ledge Ė they yell on the way down.

FADE OUT.
