Scene 42Mature

Medomai runs to Amalthea, taking the knife away from her.

MEDOMAI: What are you doing?

AMALTHEA, turning, tears streaming down her cheeks: Isn't this what you wanted?

MEDOMAI, a confused look crossing his face: I would never wish death unto anyone--

AMALTHEA, interrupting him: No, you wanted misery. You wanted pain. But I'm ending it all and giving you the final satisfaction.

MEDOMAI: What are you talking about?

AMALTHEA: Don't pretend you don't know. She takes the knife back. Let me end it!

MEDOMAI: I won't let--

Daedalus comes outside, interrupting them. Both Medomai and Amalthea turn to look at him.

DAEDALUS, shouting to Medomai: Back away from her! Get behind me!

Medomai, now frightened, does as he's told.

DAEDALUS, whispering to Medomai: She's insane. Don't go anywhere near her.

AMALTHEA: Daedalus!

MEDOMAI: What do we do now? She's going to come after us.

DAEDALUS: We've got to kill her now. Like a lame horse.

Daedalus pulls a knife from his pocket, handing it to Medomai.
