ACT 2 - SCENE 8
 *

NEAR THE TROJAN SATELLITES
(A wedding reception.)

Venus and Terrance

TERRANCE
Venus, could we speak for a moment...privately?

VENUS
Yes, but quickly. I have a great many Council members to flatter and praise. You know about that, yes?

TERRANCE
Yes. I... I would like to request a favor.

VENUS
My dear boy speak up. Favors are my business.

TERRANCE
Now that all this trouble is over, I would like to spend some time with Luna. Is that possible?

VENUS
You should be spending time with her now instead of talking to me. Time passes quickly.

TERRANCE
Yes, Time. I know, but I mean a lot of time. I would like to stay here in the Planet Realm with her.

VENUS
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.

TERRANCE
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.

VENUS
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.

TERRANCE
That is all I will ask of you. Thank you.
