VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #37

INT. AELLA’S HOME – NIGHT


In a cozy living room, a KNOCK-KNOCK comes at the front door. Aella stumbles out of her bedroom and into the living room, walking toward the door as the KNOCKING continues.


AELLA

I am coming!


She pulls out a sword and hides the weapon behind her back as she opens the door. She glares at Tanguy as he steps into her house and walks into the living room.


TANGUY
I can’t sleep. Plus, we need to talk about the new recruits and the new requirements for warriors in training.


Aella closes the door, heads for the living room couch, and places the sword on the side table.


AELLA
So just because you can’t sleep, that means no one else can?


TANGUY
No, not everyone—just you.


Tanguy grins and pulls out the lists, then holds them out toward Aella, who quickly reads them.


AELLA
Even if his daughter wants to become a warrior, the king has no right to interfere with our training program. I designed most of the previous requirements. I can’t believe he is demanding this!


Aella BANGS her fist on the table.


NAOIS, her half-naked husband, in his early thirties, quickly flies into the living room with sword in hand.


NAOIS

Aella!
Tanguy looks at Naois oddly.


TANGUY
Is this how you greet all your guests?

ACT FOUR
INT. SIRENS CASTLE HALLWAY – EVENING


Karis quickly approaches Cybele as she exits her bedroom.


KARIS
My Queen, someone has taken the prisoners’ weapons.


CYBELE
First, we are missing food from the kitchen, and now this! I am extremely disappointed in the lackluster performance of your men today. Can no one do anything right? Has Javan located my sister?


ZOELIE
I have been in my bed room. I took the food earlier today, to feed the seagulls.


Zoelie pauses by her sister, carrying a large conch seashell in her hand.


KARIS
Did you take the weapons as well?


CYBELE
Don’t accuse my sister.


ZOELIE
Cybele told you to destroy the weapons earlier.


KARIS
My men wanted to study them, but they disappeared before I could.


CYBELE
Enough! I will have Xircom’s men watch the prisoners now. Karis, locate the weapons. You are dismissed.


Karis angrily exits the hallway.


CYBELE (CONT’D)
Zoelie, we missed you at dinner.


ZOELIE

I am sorry.


CYBELE
Why is it that ever since I married, our sisterly bond has weakened?


Zoelie hugs her sister.


ZOELIE
It hasn’t. I just hope you are happy with your choice. Anyway, I’m off to feed the seagull spies.


CYBELE
Don’t get to close to the shore.


ZOELIE
I won’t. Please don’t worry so much about me.


CYBELE

Just stay safe.


ZOELIE

I will.


Zoelie withdrawals from the hallway.

INT. TANGUY’S HOME – NIGHT


Tanguy sits on a couch in a small living room, sketching a picture of bird in a tree. When a KNOCK-KNOCK comes at the door. He quickly places the paper and pencil under his coffee table in front of him.


TANGUY

Enter!


Oisin enters, with papers in hand.


OISIN
Good evening, sir.


TANGUY
I am just starting to relax. What is wrong now?


OISIN
The king instructed me to give you this list of the new recruits and the new requirements they must pass before becoming warriors.


Tanguy snatches the papers out of the Oisin’s hand and peruses it.


TANGUY
These requirements are a little extreme for warriors in training. Why is King Lir interfering with my training methods? He has never done this before!


OISIN
There is…more. Look carefully at the list of new recruits.


TANGUY
(Reads the list of recruits.)
What!? This can’t be right. Why is Princess Palila on this list?


OISIN
Because she wishes to be a warrior, sir.


TANGUY
What a coward Lir is. Instead of rejecting her request, that fool is setting his own flesh and blood up to fail!


OISIN
I know the other recruits will not be happy with these changes either. We might lose some before training.


Tanguy tosses the lists on his coffee table.


TANGUY
It is a good thing we have a few days to prepare. Now, if you don’t mind, it has been a long day, and I would like to get some rest.


OISIN
Would you like me to inform Aella?


TANGUY
No, she will not take this news lightly. Thank you.


OISIN
Yes, of course. Goodnight, General.


Oisin gives a respectful nod and exits.


TANGUY
What is he trying to prove?


He angrily smacks the coffee table, then picks it up and tosses it across the room, then stares at his sketch as it wafts to the floor.


END OF ACT THREE

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #34

EXT. SAGACIOUS PENINSULA/ FOREST – CONTINUOUS


Ros passes Rolf and heads into the campsite tents, only to see the supplies strewn about the ground and the Tequestas and Vikings fighting each other.


ROS
I order you to stop now!


ROLF
This is not good.


While Tukkuttok fights one Viking, another approaches him from behind, brandishing a small sword. Ros quickly steps in and pushes the Viking away from the chief.


ROS
A real warrior doesn’t attack from the rear. Stop this now!


Tukkuttok and the others stop and stand in front of Ros.


ROS (CONT’D)
Divide these supplies equally. I do enjoy watching a good battle, but this is no time for one.


TUKKUTTOK
Your men started this fight.


ROS
Like it or not, we must rely on each other until we can return home, because we know nothing about this odd place or its even odder inhabitants.


TUKKUTTOK
How can I rely on someone I don’t trust?


Ros leans starts piking up the supplies off the ground.


ROS
Rolf, go retrieve some fire wood. I feel a cool breeze in the air.


ROLF

Yes, sir.


ROS
The rest of you finish setting up camp, with no more battling or bickering. The next one who raises a fist or a weapon will fight me for his life!


Ros places supplies in Tukkuttok’s arms.


TUKKUTTOK
Now, your trying be reasonable.


ROS
Well, at this time, it’s better than fighting each other.


TUKKUTTOK
I still don’t trust you.


ROS
I think that the first time we agree. Good night.


Ros heads toward his tent a few feet away.

EXT. SIRENS BAY/SAGACIOUS PENINSULA – EVENING
Ros steps out the forest and onto the beach and notices a figure swimming near the shore. Rolf follows Ros’s path and pauses beside him.


ROS
What part of wanting to be alone don’t you understand?


ROLF
I fear the chief’s people and our men will kill each other before the end of the night.


ROS
Good. That will mean fewer ships for us to build to make our departure from this godforsaken place…after we get my brother back, of course.


ROLF
You mean the brother who never wanted to be found? I warned you that this mission was pointless, but your arrogant mind wouldn’t allow you to see the truth in that.


ROS
Is there anything else?


ROLF
I know about the vow, the one you made to your parents on their deathbeds, that you would bring Dag home.


ROS

Stop!


ROLF
You already lost them and the love of Kinnla. How many others are you willing to lose? Let Dag go.


ROS
I never had Kinna’s love. My brother is all I have left. For the first time in my life, I don’t know which way to go

.
ROLF
You couldn’t be more wrong. What about all those men and women who have followed you across the far seas and beyond. Does that loyalty mean nothing?


ROS
It does, but… May you chose the wrong Captain to follow.


ROLF
What did you just say?


ROS
Nothing… Just go back to camp!


Ros notices that the figure in water is gone.


ROLF
What about the men?


ROS

I will take care of it.


Ros turns to head back into the forest.

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #32

ZOELIE
Enough with your lies. You got what you wanted, including a crown to sit on your pretty head. I have already begun seeing someone else.


PIKE
What is the Siren’s name?


ZOELIE
He is not a Siren.


PIKE
What!? Tell me you are not carrying on with a Sprite.


ZOELIE
There are others in this world besides Sirens and Sprites, you petty, narrow-minded fool.


PIKE

Do tell.


ZOELIE

If you must know, he is an explorer, but it is really none of your business.


Zoelie looks at her book and angrily flips a page.


PIKE
Perhaps you should learn more about this explorer before you take things…any further.


ZOELIE
And perhaps you should spend your time in your own bedroom, with your wife. Please go now and leave me alone.


PIKE
I was hoping to make amends.


ZOELIE
Fine! If you insist on staying, I’ll go.


Zoelie tosses the book on her bed as she exits her room.

INT. PRINCESS ZOELIE’S BEDROOM/CLOSET – MOMENTS LATER


Zoelie quickly enters the bedroom and closes the door. A big bed occupies the center of the room, and there is a small desk in the corner, next to a window that overlooks the Siren kingdom.


She walks over to her closet and opens the door. She enters and pulls clothes off of a huge chest in the corner, She opens the chest and looks down at a variety of rolled-up maps and other items.


A KNOCK-KNOCK comes at her door, and the princess hurriedly places Captain Ros’s pilfered items in the chest, closes it, and puts the clothes back on top to cover it.


ZOELIE
Can’t I have one day to myself?


Zoelie exits her closet and sits at her desk, pretending to read a book.


ZOELIE (CONT’D)

Please come in!


Zoelie smiles as the door opens. King Pike enters and closes the door behind him.


PIKE
Javan is looking for you.


ZOELIE

Well, here I am.


PIKE
I know we have not talked since before the wedding, but—


ZOELIE
At that time, Pike, you were courting me, but it certainly didn’t take long for you to move on to my sister.


PIKE
It was never my intention to hurt you. I hope you know I still care for you.


Pike reaches to touch Zoelie, but she pushes him away.


ZOELIE
Stop! Why are you here? If Javan wants me, tell him I’m in my room.


PIKE
I just want to apologize

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #30

INT. SIREN DUNGEON – EVENING
In a dark cell, Yura and Dag sit awake while their companions sleep on the floor. A beam of bright light comes down the hallway and shines through the iron bars. Cybele slowly strolls in with a lamp in her hands and shines the light on Yura.


CYBELE
I hope you are enjoying your accommodations.


DAG
Just go and let us be.


YURA
Dag, stop. Maybe we can reason with this sea monster.


CYBELE
How dare you, ingrate?I gave you a choice. Someone must pay for my soldiers’ deaths.


Yura runs over to the bars and tries to reach for Cybele.


CYBELE (CONT’D)

If you will let go of your pride and select two of your men to pay for what you have done, the others are free to go.


YURA
You wasted your time coming down here. I will not do such a thing, not ever.


CYBELE
Fine. I bid you well trying to survive without food or water.


YURA
I cannot let others pay for my actions.
Cybele gently touches Yura’s face as she gazes into her eyes.


CYBELE
Easily enough, I can determine the two you like the least.


Dag pushes Queen Cybele away from Yura.


DAG
Do not touch her again.


CYBELE
Beware, for my kindness is beginning to taper off.


Yura pulls Dag with her as she backs away from the bars.


YURA

Just go away!


CYBELE
I do hope you enjoy your stay. When you are ready to make selections—


YURA
That will never happen.


CYBELE
Well, then I wish you sweet dreams…while they last.

Queen Cybele turns around and heads down the corridor, toward the exit.

ROS
I apologize if my disposition is a bit unsettling for you. At this moment, I cannot say I feel like sunshine and rainbows.


TUKKUTTOK

Just be grateful.


Aella walks in front of Ros and points into the forest.


AELLA
Just stay away from the bay. There is a freshwater spring about a mile or so in that direction.


TANGUY
We will come by tomorrow to see how you are holding up.


ROS
I am sure we will survive the night.


AELLA

Farewell.


Tanguy and Aella fly up and jet across the sky, toward their home. Tukkuttok leans down and jerks the bags away from Ros.


TUKKUTTOK
None of these items belong to you.


Ros pulls a bag harshly away from Tukkuttok.


ROS
Wrong! Whatever I take belongs to me.


Tukkuttok shakes his head and begins removing supplies from the bags.


TUKKUTTOK
Make sure to build your tent far away from mine.


Ros continues to unpack the items, casting occasional glances through the trees and out at the bay as the waves crash against the beach.

OISIN
Highness, with all due respect, these skills are very advanced for new recruits.


LIR
Exactly, but this will ensure that they are better prepared to defend our land. Is there a problem? Are you suggesting that they—or our trainers—are incapable?


OISIN
No, sir. Certainly not.


LIR
Please be sure to give that to Tanguy when he returns.


OISIN

Yes, my King.
He lightly bows and exits the office.


EXT. SAGACIOUS PENINSULA FOREST – EVENING
Ros, Tukkuttok, and the remnant of crew follow Tanguy and Aella into a forest clearing. Two Sprite warriors drop four big bags in front of Ros.


TANGUY
Here are some tents you can use until your shelter is built.


ROS
We can build our own shelter.


TUKKUTTOK
Thanks for your kindness.


AELLA
If you like, we can help you set up for the night.


ROS
The only help I require is for the return of my brother.


Tukkuttok shoves Ros with a bag.


TUKKUTTOK
You have helped enough.


TANGUY
Sir Ros, I don’t really care for your tone.
