The Fair Maiden Calina, Part 8

EXT. UNDERWORLD ENTRANCE. EVENING.

Before Calina can enter, Guthran opens the door. Calina freezes.

GUTHRAN:

I stepped out for some

fresh air and I could’ve

sworn I heard your voice!

 

CALINA:

I…I was…I talk to

myself when I’m upset.

Who else would listen?

 

Guthran slaps her across the face.

GUTHRAN:

I don’t believe you! Your

behavior has changed

dramatically lately, and I

think you betrayed me!

Did you make a new friend?

 

CALINA:

No, I swear!

 

Guthran slaps her again.

GUTHRAN:

I don’t trust you to go

to the outerworld anymore!

You will stay inside with

me until the day you die!

 

CALINA:

You can’t. You wouldn’t!

 

GUTHRAN:

You are my property;

I will do whatever I want!

 

CALINA:

Well, maybe when you’re

not looking, I’ll run away.

 

Guthran pulls a knife out of his boot and holds it up to her throat.

GUTHRAN:

I will always watch you.

If you want to leave, the

only out is through a

casket. ’Til death do us

part!

 

CALINA:

No! No! It’s…you…

 

She bursts into angry, scared tears as he grabs her hair and forces her to go inside.
