VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #27

ACT THREE


INT. SPRITE PALACE/KING’S OFFICE – EVENING
King Lir’s office is furnished with many shelves full of books. Lir sits in the middle, staring at a piece of paper in his hands. Palila enters and stops in front of the desk.


PALILA
You wanted to see me?


LIR

Yes.


King Lir raises his head to look at the princess, still clutching the paper.


PALILA
What is it? Did I do something wrong?


LIR
Not necessarily. Did you request to join the warriors?


PALILA
The one day you pay attention to what you are signing!


LIR
On the contrary, darling daughter, I always read everything before I approve it, particularly when the document bears my child’s name. I just want to know why.


PALILA
Because I want to keep the Sprites safe.


LIR
You know Tanguy trains all warriors. I fear you might be a distraction for him.


PALILA
That’s his problem, not mine.
Besides, can I not be trained by Aella? She is just as great a warrior.


LIR
She works with him. I can’t give special treatment just because you are my daughter. Tanguy will train you himself or select another trainer for you. That is protocol, and it must be followed for everyone.


Lir glances at the paper again and shakes his head.


PALILA
Please, Father? This is all I’ve ever wanted.


LIR
If you pass the training, I will allow you to join the warriors.


Palila smiles, leans over the desk, and hugs her father.


PALILA
Thank you so much, Father!
She leaves his office and runs down the hallway. A moment later, a Oisin walks in and stops at King Lir’s desk.


LIR
Right on time.


He holds some documents out toward the Sprite warrior, who takes it and looks it over.


OISIN

What is this?


LIR
The new requirements for the new recruits in training. They must pass all of these in order to become Sprite warriors.

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #26

EXT. SIRENS DRY DOCK BOAT STORAGE/CAPTAIN ROS’S SHIP – AFTERNOON


Zoelie climbs over the rail and trips and falls onto the deck of Captain Ros’s ship. She hurriedly gets up and glances at the huge sail as she walks around. She turns and notices a few boxes latched down to the deck.


ZOELIE
I wonder…


Zoelie unlatches one of the boxes, opens it, and peers inside. She spies many notes and maps from Captain Ros’s various journeys. In the last box, she sees two books, Captain Ros’s personal journal and his captain’s log.


ZOELIE (CONT’D)
(She reads a few pages in his captain’s log.)
The captain is quite an explorer!


CLANKING of soldier’s armor nearby.


ZOELIE (CONT’D)

On time, as usual.
She quickly gathers all the notes, maps, journal, and log and places them in her bag, then puts the empty boxes back in place and disembarks from the ship.


INT. SIRENS CASTLE HALLWAY – AFTERNOON
Javan searches the hall, opening and closing every door.


JAVAN

Where are you?


He shudders as Cybele appears beside him.


CYBELE
I told you to keep a close eye on my sister.


JAVAN

I am.


Cybele looks around the empty hallway.


CYBELE
Where is she then?


JAVAN

Well…


CYBELE
I was merciful once with you today. I did not punish you for scarring her. I will not be so patient and kind next time.


JAVAN
I shall not let you down.

CYBELE
Check near the shore. Surely the new arrivals would pique her curiosity.


Cybele pauses in front of a painting (young a Prince and Princess with a baby in front of them.)


CYBELE (CONT’D)
I always hated this painting.


JAVAN
You and your siblings are a work of art.


CYBELE
Stop with your flattery and find her, before I lose another Sibling.


JAVAN

Yes, my Queen.


CYBELE
Don’t come back with out her and have this painting removed right away.


Javan lightly bows and exits the hallway.

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #25

Ros looks at Tanguy and Aella.


ROS
Why did you bring us here? It was a waste of time.


Ros heads to the exit.


PALILA

Wait!


Ros and Tukkuttok turn around and look toward Palila.


PALILA (CONT’D)

Fathers, will you not help them at all?


Convey looks at Lir, who is gently gripping his hand.


LIR
No. Tanguy and Aella have already evolved us too much.


PALILA
So, that’s it? You must do something!


CONVEY
We will allow them to stay near the shore away from our home. That is all we will offer them.


TANGUY

Yes, my Kings.


Tanguy smiles at Palila, but she quickly turns away from him and exits with her siblings.


TUKKUTTOK
Thank you for the help.


ROS
What help? Let’s return to the shore, and I will find a way to get all of our people and our boats back.


Tukkuttok hits Ros in the arm.


TUKKUTTOK
Stop! Your actions and mouth will only make it worse for us.


AELLA
Come. You can continue this debate near the shore.


Aella and Tanguy head toward the exit with Ros and Tukkuttok in tow.

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #24

TUKKUTTOK
And I am Tukkuttok, Chief of the Tequestas. Sea beasts have taken my daughter.


ROS
Stop interrupting me! We require assistance to recover our companions and fleet.


KING CONVEY
We cannot risk endangering our own warriors in your recovery quest.


PRINCESS PALILA and PRINCESS KELLEN enter, accompanied by PRINCE LIRVEY, a younger Sprite prince. Princess Palila pauses beside Tanguy, who stands tall, trying not to glance her way.


LIR
I agree. We have our own quarrel with the Sirens, and this doesn’t involve us. Tanguy, next time, do not bring the washed-up beings to our home.


TANGUY

I will not.


PRINCESS PALILA

Fathers, it seems only right to help them recover their people.


Lir tries to stand, but Convey pulls him back into his chair.


CONVEY
Palila, this matter doesn’t concern you. Return to your studies.


PALILA
But, Fathers, you both told me once of a time when all beings lived in harmony, from the tops of the mountains to the depths of Sirens Bay. Was that just a story meant to sweeten the world for a naïve child? I certainly hope not. Surely you would not have contrived it just to spark a naïve hope that merely leads to disappointment.


Tanguy glances at Princess Palila with a smile on his face. Aella lightly pushes him.


AELLA
You are being too obvious!


Tanguy stands tall and turns his gaze away from Palila. Lir smiles and lightly nods at Palila.


LIR
Bless you and your kind heart, child. It is just that at this time, we cannot afford any more losses.

EXT. SPRITES TREETOP TERRITORY – AFTERNOON


Tanguy and Aella carry Ros and Tukkuttok to a bridge on atop the trees. They gaze about, taking notice of the giant, cozy- looking village, full of homes and shops. Many Sprites fly about, and others mill around, purchasing items in the shops or making their way home.


TANGUY

Stay close.


Tanguy points to the biggest tree in the center, the one to which all the rope bridges lead, a luxurious, palace-like treehouse.


TANGUY (CONT’D)

Come. You must meet the kings before the midday feast.


ROS
I hope this will be quick. I am eager to recover our people and leave this place.


Ros and Tukkuttok gaze around the Sprite village.


TUKKUTTOK

This is your home?


Aella hovers beside him as they walk toward the palace.


AELLA
Yes. It has been for centuries. It keeps us safe from many who mean to harm us.


They cross a bridge that leads to the palace. SPRITE GUARDS #1 and #2 are on post at the palace entrance, holding sharptipped spears.


SPRITE GUARD #1 You may enter.


Sprite Guard #2 opens the large wooden door, and they enter the treehouse palace.


INT. SPRITES PALACE/THRONEROOM – CONTINUOUS
Ros and Tukkuttok follow Tanguy and Aella into the throneroom that boasts a woodland design.


KING LIR sits on a large wooden throne, and KING CONVEY (with no wings) occupies a small chair beside him. King Lir lightly nods.


KING LIR
Welcome to the Sprite village. How may we assist you today, gentlemen?


Ros steps closer to Lir, but Tanguy hovers in front of him, blocking his path.


TANGUY
You are not permitted to get so close.


AELLA
They are here to address you regarding an issue they are having with the Sirens.


ROS
I am Captain Qiana Ros, of a Viking exploration fleet, and—

ZOELIE
Did you even bother to ask her why?


YURA
I already told you why. They killed my husband, then tried to take his brother. They attacked our ship first.


CYBELE
Where is the rest of the crew?


JAVAN
They were taken by King Lir’s Sprites.


CYBELE
How dare he? First, he takes my brother’s life and now this. Nevertheless, take all these to the dungeon and reunite them with their companion.


ZOELIE
Our brother is not dead. No! Just let them go now!


CYBELE

He is dead to me!
(Points at Yura.)
Only if she selects two of her men to pay for her crimes. Only then will I release them, along with their ships.


ZOELIE
Perhaps there is another solution, one that will not end in bloodshed.


KING PIKE enters and walks over to Queen Cybele, then lightly kisses her on the lips.


KING PIKE
You should listen to your wise and beautiful sister, Highness.


ZOELIE
Why don’t you go back to lurking in dark corners?


Zoelie quickly exits the throne room.

YURA
I was—


CYBELE
Whatever excuse you plan to spew is not reason enough to kill my soldiers. Where are her weapons?


Cybele grabs the daggers and gently points them at Yura, but Yura looks back at her fearlessly.


CYBELE (CONT’D)

She does not seem afraid.


YURA
Why would I be? In the end, death comes for us all. Set me free from this world so I can be with my love, the one your soldiers killed.


Cybele turns and points the daggers at the Vikings and Tequestas behind Yura.


CYBELE
You took two of our lives. Select two of your men to pay for your crime, and I will allow the rest of you to leave with your ships.


YURA
I will not, and only a heart of stone would ask me to do such a thing.


Zoelie enters with Javan and rushes over to hug and greet Cybele.


ZOELIE
All is well. I am home.


CYBELE
I am so glad you are safe! I have heard of the bitter struggle on the bay.


Zoelie takes the daggers from Cybele and hands them back to Karis, then turns to faces Yura.


ZOELIE
Allow me to introduce myself and my sister. I am Princess Zoelie, and this is Queen Cybele. Welcome to the Siren kingdom. And you are…?


YURA
My name is Yura, of the Tequestas tribe.


CYBELE
Why must you be so coy and casual? Surely you realize these are prisoners.


KARIS
Princess, she killed two of our soldiers.

VAGARY “Eye of the storm” #20

XIRCOM, another queen’s guard, enters, with Dag in shackles.
She walks over to Queen Cybele, bowing her head in reverence.


XIRCOM
My Queen, the soldiers were attacked on the bay. We detained the attackers, and they will be here shortly.


CYBELE
Shortly? Why not now!? Why must I wait for everything today?


DAG
Your men attacked us first.


Queen Cybele releases Delvin and pushes him away. She steps closer to Dag and Xircom.


CYBELE
What were you doing on my bay?


DAG
We were brought here by a storm.


CYBELE
Are you telling the truth?


Cybele touches Dag’s face as Xircom and Delvin hold his arms.


DAG
Stop! What gives you the right to touch me?


She looks deeply into his eyes, and Dag stares back at her. Cybele uses Siren magic to read his mind.


CYBELE
You have been on quite a journey.


Dag faints and falls to the floor. Cybele steps over his body.


CYBELE (CONT’D)
Did you recover his brother?


XIRCOM
I believe Javan has had trouble escorting him here.


CYBELE
That sounds like Javan. Take this one to the dungeon.


Queen Cybele walks across the room and sits on her throne, and Xircom removes Dag from the throne room. When the doors open wide again, Siren soldiers escort Yura, a few Viking crewmen, and some Tequestas into the throne room.


KARIS
My Queen, I charge this woman with murder for killing two Siren soldiers.


CYBELE

So I’ve heard.
