BELOVED FOOL: BEYOND THE WESTERN SEA

SCENE IV.iii


[Elsewhere: a wide columned space of indeterminate size, very dim, fading into shadows on all sides. Finrod is standing alone (apparently) in the middle of it, in a listening attitude]

Finrod:
I know this is an imposition, and I'm awfully sorry. But I do need help, and you do have leverage that I haven't. If you'll just let me explain, and then decide whether or not it's worth your while, I will be deeply in your debt…because I feel quite certain that once you hear the story, you'll be only too willing to lend your assistance.

[pause]

And I know I'm being impossibly presumptuous, but at least I'm honest about it. And you can always send me away afterwards if I'm wrong.

[silence -- the darkness starts to acquire a texture in front of him, with a very elegant, rather ornate but quite delicate carven archway in the middle of a ghostly wall, slowly becoming visible. (In the old days such an illusion would be worked with scrims and lighting, and mirrors, instead of computer effects.) Finrod bows.]

Thank you, cousin.

[he enters the gate which stands invitingly open, and which closes behind him, the entryway fading into the greyness once again.]
