ACT 2 - SCENE 8
NEAR THE TROJAN SATELLITESTERRANCE
Venus, could we speak for a moment...privately?
(A wedding reception.)
Yes, but quickly. I have a great many Council members to flatter and
praise. You know about that, yes?
Yes. I... I would like to request a favor.
My dear boy speak up. Favors are my business.
Now that all this trouble is over, I would like to spend some time with
Luna. Is that possible?
You should be spending time with her now instead of talking to me.
Time passes quickly.
Yes, Time. I know, but I mean a lot of time. I would like to stay here
in the Planet Realm with her.
I am sorry, Terrance. That may not be possible. We only needed you for the rescue, such
as it was. Your job here is finished.
I know, but I have dreamed about Luna for so long. When I was in my
mortal form and I took my spacecraft to visit her it was like I could
almost... almost touch her. I want her so much. I need her.
Ahh, "the touch." Yes, I see what you mean. What is love without "the
touch." I am beginning to have hope for you mortals after all. Let me
see what I can do. I will talk-up a few key Council
members, but I am not promising anything.
That is all I will ask of you. Thank you.
