***Transcript***

Panel 1 Gonzago in full detailed view for the first time. He wears a rag upon his head and a knee-length leather apron. He accosts an unnamed young fellow by placing a hand on his shoulder from the side as he overtakes him. He speaks a bit gruffly.

PERSON: WHAT –?
GONZ: MY APOLOGIES. WHEN’S THE LAST TIME YOU SAW FERNALDO?

Panel 2 Face of young man. Hand on shoulder still apparent in shot. Certain bravado is seen in his eyes. And his response certainly ends cheekily enough.

PERSON: THIS MORNING. HE AND RORIC LEFT WITH THE BARON AT DAWN. HE DIDN’T TELL YOU?

Panel 3 Close shot of Gonzago’s face. He’s almost without expression, lips very tight. Behind him we can see the fellow he just spoke to laughing with another young man.

Panel 4 We see the back of Gonzago as he strides away with apparent purpose in his step.

Panel 5 Meinfrid appears for the first time. He cups his hands to his mouth and calls out to Gonzago who is rapidly leaving.

MFRID: GONZAGO. GONZAGO! WAIT A MOMENT, WILL YOU? (Aside, second bubble) I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR AS WELL AS ANY OF US.

Panel 6 Meinfrid has caught up to him now, but we can only see the backs of them as they face away from the shot. A corner of the some building and a table are in view. Gonzago’s hands are loosely clasped behind his back. Meinfrid gestures broadly with his hands.

MFRID1: WHY THE RUSH? ISN’T SPRING A GLORIOUS TIME OF YEAR?
GONZ: I’VE WORK TO FINISH. AND SPRING’S NO MORE GLORIOUS THAN ANY OTHER SEASON.
MFRID2: AH, BUT EVERY SEASON HAS IT’S OWN GLORY. WINTER WITH ITS PURITY. SPRING HOLDS SUCH–

Panel 7 Meinfrid and Gonzago facing each other with a building behind them, close.

GONZ: MEINFRID, I’M BUSY. PLEASE.
MFRID: WILL YOU NOT JOIN US?
