|The Mage Sister||
Nathan Now that’s just mean. You’re clearly into torture, and I’m not sure any of us should have anything to do with you.
The Mage Sister Some people like wearing crowns, Nathan. Not everyone has a pathological fear of them.
Nathan And now you’re lying. You aren't a very respectable character, are you? I don’t know anyone who likes walking around with an iron maiden on their head.
The Mage Sister How many people do you know that wear crowns?
Nathan There’s plenty, and none of them like it.
Arinda I don’t mind wearing it, Nathan. It’s not that bad.
Catherine They’re nowhere near as uncomfortable as you’d have people believe.
Nathan Who’s talking please? Do I know you?
Catherine I certainly hope so, because otherwise a complete stranger stole all the covers last night.
Nathan I have no idea what you’re talking about. The very idea!
Arinda My apologies, Your Majesty. Clearly I’m mistaken and I’ll return this ten pound hair ornament to your keeping.
Nathan What? Hold on now!
Arinda Well, since you don’t know me, I have no need for it…
Nathan Now, Rinda, no one ever said anything about that.
Arinda …and I shan’t need to bother with all the royal gobbledygook that goes along with it.
Nathan My word! I just remembered! Must’ve had a brief lapse there, but everything is fine, and you can take that crown back now, Rinda.
Arinda I don’t want it.
Nathan TAKE THE CROWN!
Nathan Awww, Rinda, c’mon! I was just having a bit of fun!
Arinda Who’s talking, please? Do I know you?
Catherine Well played, Madam!
Arinda Thank you!
Nathan Funny. Very funny. I’m doubling over with laughter.
