Scene 45Mature

Medomai bends down, picking up a pile of ashes, and heads to the river almost instinctively.

He reaches the spot quickly, dropping the ashes into the flowing water.

MEDOMAI, quietly: My escape.

Giving up hope, he steps into the river, short-circuiting himself in a blast of electricity.

This creates a spark in the nearby brush, catching it on fire, but the fire doesn't spread. It just burns the grass dry in the area, luckily not sparking a forest fire. Eventually, the whole clearing is burnt.
