ACT 2 - SCENE 5
(Jupiter is pacing while Baron Io, Duchess Europa and others are preparing for battle, Luna returns.)
Luna! You are back so soon! Have you been safe?
Yes, and I have some very good news. Why are you wearing this
My troops are forming a defensive line. We ready ourselves for war!
This all must stop! Saturn will marry you as soon as you ask!
She has been waiting for an eternity... She has always been yours.
Lord Jupiter! The picket lines are now being probed by
Planet Council assault teams. The transformed Terrance now approaches
with his hoard.
Very good. Take your position... and please... protect our sisters.
By your leave, Sire.
I am such a fool.
This strikes profoundly at my heart. My deepest desire of being with
my beloved Saturn may now become true. I am filled with gladness...
and I am filled with sorrow. So much happiness has been lost to waiting...
because I was afraid... of love... of commitment... and now our betrothal,
will surely not come to pass.
Do not hesitate! Saturn loves you and will marry you. These other
matters are not important. I will tell Terrance that my abduction was a
mistake; that I was not really kidnapped. You return the plutonium to
Pluto, Saturn will get a divorce from Halley, and you two get married!
It will be easy!
Yes, easy to say, but you forget; we deal with an enraged warrior now!
When the Council transformed Terrance from his mortal form to that of
the Planet Realm they must have forgotten to transform his heart as well.
Our requests for a peace mediation have gone unheeded. The odds are
against us six to one! We do not have a chance.
Then it is up to me. I will stop this!
Wait! Stop! You will be hurt!
