of skill, courage, daring and drama the wheel of death.
Butcher... "A command performance indeed. And for this I must beg the indulgence
of my former assistant in matters of impalement the butchers original apprentice
What do you say, Jenn? One more time for the sweet souvenir. Come on."
Everdeane comes up on stage. Bill puts a shawl over her shoulders.
JENN... Of course.
The Butcher throws two knives just over Jenn's shoulders, pinning the shawl.
BUTCHER...You may feel more comfortable without that garment Miss Everdeane.
JENN...Youll have to filch me a new one Bill.
THE BUTCHER...Anything in your pockets tonight?
JENN...Oh, I aint started working yet.
THE BUTCHER...What about that locket I gave you?
Butcher throws a knife at her as she takes it off. The locket falls to the floor.
THE BUTCHER...Apologies my dear. Pick it up.
The Butcher impales the locket with a knife.
