IN THE LAND OF AARU PART 2
I’m...I’m so sorry. Sorry for
everything. Sorry I wasn’t a better
son...sorry I couldn’t save you.
At least Ora and Edmund did a nice
job on your...uh...graves. I always
loved this old oak tree. I think
you both would have liked It
So...umm...I’m gonna’ head to
Shadow Run. You said to do
that...if anything happened...
Anyway...it’s already midday so we
wont get too far before we camp, I
said to wait until tomorrow, but
Ora insisted, and you know Ora,
when she makes up her mind...
Aaaaah!! This is so STUPID! Who am
I even talking to? You can’t hear
me, you’re DEAD! Your dead and
And I’m still here. Why? For what?
Ora says I’m the “Chosen One,” that
I should feel honored or special
or... but I don’t want any of
that...I just want my parents back.
Ugh, It couldn’t be me, anyway...I
can’t do magic. No matter what she
says she saw, she’s wrong. Besides,
if I had magic, I would have been
able to save you both
And it’s not like you wouldn’t have
told me, right?
Too late to ask now. I miss you
both so much.
I don’t know what I’m gonna’ do.
I’ll go to Shadow Run...after
Well...I do know one thing, I’m not
gonna’ waste any more time on this
Chosen One stuff. Leave that for
some gasser looking to play hero.
I’m not sure the world deserves to
be saved anyway.
Godrick...? Are you alright?
Yes, yes I...I...I’m fine
Spirit stay here.
(softly, to his parents)
May Stisha grant you safe
crossing...I love you, mom. Dad.
We heard you shouting. I’m a big
fan of shouting.
Well, I wanted to be sure they
could hear me.
Hey, did we do an okay job? Dad and
I did our best and--
Oh, no no you did great. Thank you.
Really. Thank you both.
Your parents would have done the
same for us. Are you, uh, sure you
want to leave? After everything
you’ve been through...
No, I want to be with my family.
I’ve never met my aunt, but she’s
the only family I’ve got now. I
made a promise to my parents.
Sure, sure. Of course.
Well, umm...here, come see what Ama
packed in Spirit’s bags. She’s got
enough supplies for a month’s
journey, much less the six days It
takes to ride to Shadow Run.
And...uh...there’s something I want
to show you.
Ora, wait a moment.
What is It?
I want you to know something. I am
so proud of you...
I know, Grandma...
Ora! I am so proud of you and I’m
proud that you’ve placed your faith
in the Prophecy. My mother handed
that faith down to me and I’ve
handed It down to you. But
Grandma, he is...
Just listen to me!!
But Godrick does not believe the
way that you do. And with
everything he’s been through...
He’s...he’s more fragile then you
understand...You’re going to need
to look out for him. You...
Just...Just take care of him.
Grandma, don’t worry. I will.
And...and take care of yourself.
I will...I always do.
...so, even with potential delays,
I don’t think you’ll have anything
to worry about.
No, this is...amazing. We’ll eat
like kings. Thank you...for
Don’t thank me, this was all Ama’s
doing. There is...one more thing...
Here we go.
My father’s sword!
We found It when we...took care of
things. The sheath is a little
worse for wear, but the sword...
...looks incredible. Did you...?
I may have cleaned It up a bit;
it’s a beautiful weapon.
(Chuckling) Dad always said mom and
I were the only things in this
world he loved more than this
sword... Thank you, Edmund.
You’re welcome, lad. I know George
would have wanted you to have It.
Carry It with pride.
You had better not be eating the
We’re not Ama!
If I had, I’d have to go with you.
How are you two getting on?
Everything in order?
Yes. Everything looks great. I’m
Good! We should get going. At this
point, we’re only going to get
three leagues from here, if we’re
It’s about six days ride to Shadow
Run, wouldn’t It be better to set
off in the morning...?
Edmund, Spirit is packed and
they’re ready to go...so let them.
Fine, fine. So, who rides first?
We’ll just walk for. Save Spirit
for the moment.
Sounds good to me.
I’ll be back, Father. Don’t worry.
Telling me not to worry is like
telling the wind not to blow...
I know...But you know I had to try.
I love you so much.
I love you to dad.
I may have my doubts about all
this...but I believe in you Ora.
Now go! Get out of here, the
farther you get before It gets dark
the better. Less chance of me
coming after you!
Bye! Thanks for everything.
We’ll send word when we can!
Goodbye. Be safe. We love you.
(calling after them as
they walk off)
Godrick, you take care of my
daughter. And Ora...keep him alive
long enough to do It!
2 SCENE BRAKE 2
Ugh! It is far too late in the
evening for this nonsense! Hand
over the child!
He’s just a boy; he’s of no danger
Dad, I’m sorry.
We have heard evidence he’s magic.
Rumors! Unfounded gossip from
Then why did we and all these fine
village-folk find you on the road,
sneaking away from town in the dead
I won’t let you and your child put
the rest of us at risk! These men
are here for our protection.
Linus, you canary fink!
I witnessed the magic myself,
sire, just two fortnights ago.
There, you see? Hardly a rumor.
What are you doing? Don't go near
Quiet! Or you’ll be made quiet!
What is your name?
It’s alright... It's alright,
child. I won’t hurt you.
Now child, what is your name?
I knew a Malcolm once. He was a
very brave man; he had bright green
eyes. What color eyes do you have?
May I see? You can see my eyes, if
you like. I’ve always been told
mine are a dull gray, like old
I can see them, sir...they look
nice to me.
You are kind. My mother was always
fond of my eyes, too.
He’s a good lad. Kind. And those
Villagers! We all know how
dangerous the magic can be.
It’s best the child comes with us.
No! You’ll have to kill me!
If you insist...
Defend yourselves! Ugh!
It’s a Corrupted! Run Run
Everybody, in to the forest! Take
COME HERE, BOY!
Let me go!!
Watch yourself, Jasper! It’s comin’
And no eyes! Jasper, aim for
Protect the child! It’s after the
Oooof! Nobody Move!
Get away from the boy!
Please...leave us be...
I’m Sorry mom. Father!!
Hal, the child!
The Lusus Naturae, sir.
Took him in his jaws...he’s surely
Another one...claimed by one of
How many have we lost?
My dearest Annette...
Villager. The Lusus Naturae, or
corrupted as you call It, feed off
the magic. Magic that broke this
land in two. We are here to protect
you! And now you know why. You
tried to save your child, and now
you’ve lost him...and your wife.
This is all your fault, Linus!
You’re the traitor!
Traitor. You saw! He was a traitor!
Sir, may I point out we are short a
few men now?
It’s Linus. I’m a fuller by trade.
You fended yourself well against
the Lusus Naturae and showed no
remorse to the grieving widower.
Methinks you’ll fit in perfectly as
my apprentice. If you are so
inclined to join, of course?
Good. The pay is low but the
adventure is high.
Hal, pay the fuller. For his first
week. He’s earned It.
Thank me with your blood and sweat,
fuller. That’s all I ask. Mount up
and let’s ride.
3 SCENE BRAKE 3
Ugh! Stop doing that!
Ha, I think Spirit likes you.
Ugh, I wish she liked me less.
Ugh! What’s that smell?
I think its the horse. Oats will do
that to you.
No, seriously. You smell that?
Oh, now I do. It’s almost like...
Blood. Come on. Hyah
No, Ora! Wait!!
I’m going to be sick.
A corrupted did this?
What else could? These people are
ripped apart, and these claw marks
on the ground...? And look!
ugh...I...don’t want to imagine
what happened to this one. Look at
his jerkin! I remember It. He was
one of the Vigiles who attacked
Your right. One of the men I fought
was wearing one...or one just like
It. But he’s the only one dressed
that way. What about these others?
Must be villagers.
Let’s get out of here, Ora.
this is...I wasn’t...I couldn’t
have expected this...
Come on. Let’s keep going...
Yeah. Spirit, come on girl. Lets
Ora, if the Prophecy is fulfilled
It means the corrupted will
Yes. Along with the Vigiles.
And if I am the Chosen One, all
this carnage and awfulness could
stop, once and for all?
Yes. The Chosen One will protect
the realm and peace and prosperity
will reign once again.
I didn’t tell you the other day,
but when I was unconscious, right
before I woke up, I had a dream I
was the Chosen One. Everything felt
so real. I saw myself...I saw
myself saving everyone.
Ha! Of corse you did, because you
are the Chosen One, Godrick. One
Dream. That cinches It. The Chosen
One can’t walk, you’re riding from
here on out! Your horse, my liege.
I shall walk from here.
Why, thank you citizen.
Let me help you up.
Well, if you insist. As a reward,
I will allow you to look after my
Such an honor your Chosen-ness!
Yes, my people, we shall defend
this land... Ha HA! What? Oh,
Haha ha ha, Ohhh! Haha. Oh hey
Spirit! Spirit! Hey, are you
alright? I guess bees have no
respect for the Prophecy, sire.
But don't you worry, oh Chosen
One! We'll change the world and
then they'll bend their tiny little
wills to you. But first, we must
retrieve your noble steed!" I hate
to say It, but it’s a good thing
they chased Spirit, at least she’s
got some hope of out running ‘em.
Hey and if you think I’m doing all
the work now that your... Godrick?
Godrick. Come on get up and help.
Godrick? Godrick, come on... Hey,
please say something.
Is that blood? Godrick? Oh no.
Godrick?! No...GODRICK NO! No no
no. Come on. Godrick, Godrick. No,
no, come on...
