INT. MIRA’S ROOM - NIGHT
Samuel enters, Mira following. She never takes her eyes off him, but it’s a wary study this time.
A nice room, and it will do for now, but we’ll
certainly find something better. Maybe a suite
next to the library?
Come on, then.
Your son. As far as I know, he’s fine. I’d like
to check and make sure before I start
picking out new curtains, but apparently
our child isn’t important to you anymore.
Of course Dominik is important to me.
So you remember his name.
Everything’s changed, Mira! Don’t you see that?
You can’t just pretend everything will go back to
the way it was. Why would you even want that? Don’t
you want more? More than a one-room cottage
with a leaky roof, squawking chickens, and a half-starved cow?
Once, I did.
There’s something I haven’t been able to work out yet. Does
Janos think he will trick me? Does he hope to break me?
Or does he think he will make me kill you, so that I will be driven mad?
What are you talking about?
You are not my husband, and I am glad.
I doubt...this is what you master wants from you.
What is happening to me? Mira?
I’ve never felt such anger before. As though it
came from outside me.
Don’t pretend like you feel anything. You’re not him!
No. I’m not.
He’s calling for me.
What does he want?
You. And he’ll have you before this is finished.
