On the Bridge of the Tower Of The Moon
Mentl and Zona walk in their serious clothes purposefully
MENTL: As if I could stop you.
ZONA: I couldn’t stop you, either once you make your mind up …
TULA: But I can stop you, and I will.
ZONA: Tula, you –
TULA: I thought you might pull a stunt like this. You are staying right here in the Valley.
ZONA: You can’t –
TULA: Oh, yes I can. This time. Zona, I hate to pull rank, but Mother made me regent in her absence. Which means when she’s not here I speak for her.
ZONA: And you think she’d prevent me from going out to look for her myself?
TULA: You know the answer to that as well as I do.
ZONA: Tula! I have to do something! I’m going out of my mind!
TULA: And you think I’m not?
