TEASER

 

1. INT. HUT - NIGHT

FADE IN:

Xena and Gabrielle are lying on short cots.

Cuts and scrapes have been bandaged.

The healer is tending to Gabrielle's wounds.

Behind her, watching, stands a warrior-woman of obvious rank.

Beside the warrior, spear in hand, butt end resting on the floor, stands another of lower rank.

 

WARRIOR 1

Where did your patrol find them?

 

WARRIOR 2

Near the shore. We heard screams from those attacked by sea-devils. There was a ship on the reef sinking.

(beat)

We watched as they made their way toward the shore.

(nods in Xena's direction)

The dark one swam, bringing the light one in on floating wood until they were attacked. The dark one battled the sea-devil.

Warrior 1's eyebrows shoot up in surprise as Warrior 2 nods.

 

WARRIOR 1

She battled a full grown sea-devil? What of the light one?

 

WARRIOR 2

We could not see. The sea-devil probably had her judging by the injuries on her foot and leg.

 

WARRIOR 1

She is obviously the inferior one.

 

WARRIOR 2

Perhaps the dark one's consort?

 

WARRIOR 1

Perhaps.

(beat)

I want two guards posted outside until we know more about these strangers. Inform Chena and myself of any change in their condition immediately.

 

WARRIOR 2

As you wish, my queen.

 

The second warrior steps outside to issue the order.

The queen takes a step forward and stands directly behind the healer.

 

QUEEN

What of their wounds?

 

HEALER

The dark one has a long scrape on her arm. The light one has several lacerations - on her foot and legs. I removed these.

 

The healer holds out three small sharks teeth along with Gabrielle's boot. Her sai is still attached.

 

HEALER
(CONT'D)

They were embedded in her boot.

(beat)

I must admit, I have yet to see any skin this thick your majesty. It stopped the teeth from deeper penetration.

 

The queen reaches down and takes Gabrielle's boot, feeling the leather. She notices the sais in their holdings.

 

QUEEN
(muttering to herself)

Why would one who is obviously of inferior heritage require weapons?

 

HEALER

Maybe this stranger is not inferior in her land.

 

QUEEN

She is not in her land anymore.

 

HEALER

Yes, your majesty.

(nods)

As for their injuries, they should be up in a matter of hours. My first concerns are their lips.

 

The queen looks confused so the healer explains.

 

HEALER
(CONT'D)

It is obvious they have gone days without real drink. We have been giving them water but they have never become fully conscious. Once we get drink into them they should improve greatly. Their muscles are quite firm already from our efforts.

 

The queen reaches down and squeezes Xena's thigh and she stirs slightly at the sensation of being touched.

 

QUEEN

So I see.

 

HEALER

But they are very light in the skin. It may be sickness. It may not. These strangers could be fair in tone. The lips however are a major concern.

 

QUEEN

See to their needs and report the moment they rise.

 

The healer gives a nod and the queen give a slight nod.

 

QUEEN
(CONT'D)

I want to speak to the woman who can fight a sea devil and live to tell the tale.
