(very quietly)

Who'll pinch me to wake me up?

Who will laugh at me when I fall?

Whose breath will I listen for...

...so that I may sleep?

Whose hand will I hold...

...so that I may walk?

(man) We may question ourselves

at moments such as these.

Did we make the right decision

to settle here?

We are grateful for the time

we have been given.

(murmuring)

(thunderclap)

(moaning)

(rumbling)

What manner of spectacle has attracted

your attention so splendidly?

I ought to carry it in my pocket

to help me teach.

(flies buzzing)

Who came upon this?

- Philip, did you move this?

- No, Mr. Walker.

(flies buzzing)

I inspected it carefully. Its head was

twisted back and much of its fur removed.

- I see.

- It was murdered.

But who is the culprit?

Who has done this heinous act?

- Those We Don't Speak Of killed it.

- There it is.

Why would such a notion

come into your mind?

- They're meat eaters.

- Mmm.

They have large claws.

Children...

...Those We Don't Speak Of have not

breached our borders for many years.

We do not go into their woods,

they do not come into our valley.

It is a truce.

We do not threaten them.

Why would they do this?

And we ought not to overlook

the Flight of the Birds.

We didn't have it last year

and l, for one, missed it desperately.

And I know your wife missed

the children dressed in feathers and such.

- I am fond of it.

- Mmm.

I do not have a say in this matter.

August Nicholson is chair

of today's meeting.

(door opens)

There's a young man who has

requested a word with the elders.

Well, do have him come forward.

Alice.

(August) Hello, Lucius.

"My mother is unaware

of the reason for my visit today."

"She did not give her consent

or consult me in any form."

"The passing of little

Daniel Nicholson from illness,

and other events,

have weighed on my thoughts."

"l ask permission to cross

into the forbidden woods

and travel to the nearest town."

"l will gather new medicines,

and I will return."

"With regards to

Those We Don't Speak Of,

I am certain they will let me pass."

"Creatures can sense emotion and fear."

"They will see I am pure of intention,

and not afraid."

"The end."

(Alice) What goes on

in that head of yours?

Say something, Lucius.

Finton Coin is in the tower,

and I've promised to sit with him.

Hmm.

Do you ever think of the towns, Finton?

The towns?

What for?

They're wicked places

where wicked people live. That's all.

Thank you, Lucius.

You're a good friend.

I do hope no one saw you.

(howling)

(flies buzzing)

What we seem to have amongst us

is a predator of some type,

most likely a coyote or a wolf.

Its manner of... of killing

and removing the fur,

but leaving the flesh torn,

may be a sign that this animal

suffers from madness.

And for the next fortnight,

we should be vigilant

for sightings of this coyote.

Keep careful watch over

our little ones as they play on the hills.

As for the other notion...

...we do not believe

our boundary has been breached.

Those We Don't Speak Of are much

larger creatures than coyotes...

...and we would know

if they had been here.

(murmuring)

(door opens)

Ahh, it's frightful, this business

with the coyote. Is it not, Papa?

- Do not feel worried, Kitty.

- You are not troubled?

I'm certain it will all end soon.

- Can we speak on other matters, then?

- It would be a relief.

I'm in love!

I want your permission

to marry, Papa.

There's a proper manner in which

things are supposed to happen.

Such as the boy would normally be

standing next to you,

in a moment such as this...
