Only two scenes today. I'm not sure if they even advance the plot. Hmm.
INT. GUEST ROOM - MORNING
Mira sits in the chair, in the dress from the night before. Wide awake, calm, and watching the door.
The door OPENS. Mira betrays little reaction. Janos enters.
I am Father Janos.
Will you come with me?
Do I have a choice?
God gives us all free will.
INT. CHAPEL - DAY
Mira looks automatically for the font inside the doors, but there isn’t one. Janos heads right up to the altar.
You seem quite young to be the personal
priest to such a wealthy and powerful man.
Each and every resident of the village is
a member of my flock, no less important
than the Count. Come and pray.
I am married. Joined to another in the eyes
of God. The Count cannot revoke that on a whim.
I have prayed that he will cleave
again to his wife.
Will you tell him that he cannot just take
me? Will you tell him that?
I am not in the position to tell the Count anything.
But you are a man of God. Surely he will listen to you.
Mira gathers herself to ask a difficult question.
Last night, something happened to me. I saw things...
(takes her hands)
You were tired, and upset. Do not worry, my child.
Janos goes behind the altar. Fills the crystal goblet with red wine - the liquid pours a little too thick.
He carries the goblet to Mira. Brings it to her lips.
SMILES as she drinks.
