14. Scene III.iii

A Boy, A Girl & A Dog
The Lay of Leithian Dramatic Script Project



[Elsewhere: the council chamber]

[Luthien is sitting down again, but on the edge of her seat as though at any moment she's going to be up again, glaring furiously at a new Elven-shade, a distinguished and serious looking fellow who was one of the many bystanders in Act I at the court of Doriath. He could be played by Anthony Stewart Head, (courtesy of Mutant Enemy Productions) and at the moment he's looking extremely distressed.]

I cannot begin to express how grieved I am, Princess, to discover that after all our efforts to keep you safe, and all the improbable escapes and scrapes you managed to get out of, you have ended up here all the same.

Luthien: [shortly]
  Well, I'm not particularly happy to see you either.

That's a terribly harsh thing to say after I got killed trying to secure help and justice on your behalf.

[shaking his head sadly]

I would never have expected such callousness and lack of nobility from that sweet child you used to be. It's got to be the influence of that repulsive Man corrupting you.

[Luthien's eyes blaze. Slowly and deliberately and ominously she gets up and paces over towards him -- as he leans back nervously we get a glimpse of what Sauron might have seen coming for him on the Bridge -- and stands in front of him with an icy look of righteous indignation]

You told Dad to lock me up in Hirilorn.

I wasn't the only one!

Luthien: [grim]
Oh, believe me, I know.

Vaire: [to Namo]
You know, darling, I'm not sure this was such a good idea. Even if it was mine.
