EPHESUS PALACE (BRIDGE ENTRANCE)

A scream of excitement. The square is barely occupied. Knights emerge in and out the palace gate. All look excited. Doors are thrown open so loudly


KING'S CHAMBERS

A man seated. The back facing the entrance.foot Steps heard barely entering his chambers. He turns around. His eyes warily Express anxiety with a depressed smile. It's King SOLOMON (late 50s).


SOLOMON

(breaths heavily)

"My princess! You look astonishingly gorgeous."

AURELIA(early 20s) sniffs. Tears rolling down her beautiful face.


AURELIA

"Father!"


SOLOMON

"Aurelia my darling!"

She hurriedly grabs an embrace from him. Sniffs and rubs her nose.


AURELIA

"Father! Today is assumed to be the best day of my life. Isn't it?"


SOLOMON

"YES!"


AURELIA

"Then why do I feel so lost. I don't know what to do without GAIA father. I don't want to be coronated queen without her father."

She wobbles down to her knees shrieking. Solomon wobbles next to her slowly. He wipes her tears.


SOLOMON

"She made a choice auleria. All you have is time and patience. Maybe on one of those glorious days as queen, she will be standing by your side."

Looking straight in each other's eyes.


AURELIA

(Sniffs)

"You don't think she is abandoned me do you father?"

Solomon holding aurelia by the chicks. Sniffing in a deprecating way.


SOLOMON

"No one can ever abandon my daughter and no one will ever abandon you my darling. Your the light of the kingdom."

He heads up. Stretching his arm long giving aurelia a lift up as well.


SOLOMON (CONT'D)

"At this moment, this kingdom, me and your mother need to see you strong and happy."

He exhales in thrill.


AURELIA

"I love you father."


SOLOMON

"I love you more my queen."

Aurelia heads out through the corridors.


EPHESUS THROWN ROOM

(A distant loud voice)

"Give way! The king and queen."

All courtiers on there feet with amusement expressions. The throne room silent as limbo. Solomon and his queen ATHALIA (40s) head to there throne.


SOLOMON

(Arms laid wide moving back and forth)

"Thank you all my people! Today is one of the days that everyone one in this kingdom waits for. To get there next king or queen."

"It is indeed at a young age that princess Aurelia is to become the new empress. The queen of ephesus. Lord ALEC (late 40s)!"

Solomon gestures for Lord Alec to proceed.

A ripple of excitement as the crowd waits on. An old man standing next to the king's thrown calls on.


LORD ALEC

"Princess Aurelia!"

Aurelia kneels. Lord Alec stands before her.


LORD ALEC

"Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the people of ephesus according to there beliefs and customs?"


AURELIA

"I will."

Lord Alec places a sword on Aurelia's shoulder.


LORD ALEC

"Do you promise to protect and fight in faith for the people of ephesus?"


AURELIA

"I will."

Lord Alec places a crown on Aurelia's head.


LORD ALEC

"Then by the sacred law invested in me, I pronounce you Auleria, Queen of ephesus."

Aurelia stands and looks over the courtiers.


SOLOMON

"Long live the queen."

Everyone joins in the chant.


ALL

"Long live the queen."

With a moment of silence. Two arrows from the entrance door shoot both King Solomon and Queen Athalia straight in there hearts. A spread of terror araises. Knights draw there swords out.

A loud scream for crowd. The kingdom is under attack. Aurelia horrified seeing her parents down.


AURELIA

(Tears roll down her chicks)

"You can't leave me alone. You can't die."


SOLOMON

"Listen to me Aurelia. You are the bravest, strongest queen and knight I've ever known. The enemy is great enough to launch an assault upon your kingdom. You have to fight for you and your people."


AURELIA

"No! You have to survive. Both of you. I need you. I can't..... What will I do without you?"


ATHALIA

"It is a little late for us to survive Aurelia. You will have your father's best knights fight for your kingdom."


SOLOMON

(Grunting)

"They will protect you with there lives. Go Aurelia! Go protect your people."


AURELIA

"I love you mama and papa. Stay here and I promise I will be right back. ALMOND (40s)! Promise to keep an eye on the king and queen."


ALMOND

"Yes your highness."

Aurelia heads out the room drawing her sword out. Almond knees by the king and queen. With a gasp for air, Solomon calls on Almond.


SOLOMON

(Bleeding heavily)

"Promise me Almond. Promise me you will protect my child with your life."


ALMOND

"My lord! You have not the energy to speak. You have to keep rest."


EPHESUS SQUARE

The square is a hive of dead bodies. Knights and warriors of Ephesus fighting hand-to-hand keeping intruders from entering the palace. Same as the intruders forcing there way in.


MAN IN EPHESUS

"We can't hold them any longer. We have to close the gate."


AURELIA

(Clears throat in a scream)

"No one closes the gate. Am getting to the one coward who had those arrows in the hearts of my parents. Sir. BASIL,SIR. BARAK, SIR. ADRIAN, SIR ALEXANDER (all in there late 40s). Have you elected to fight by my side?"

AURELIA

(Loudly)

"Settle my horse."

Alexander taking in her mood


ALEXANDER

"We must be cautious my queen. You can't attack there camps. It's a risk you can't take."


AURELIA

"Why not? Whoever shot arrows in both my mother and father's hearts is smiling. And that coward is seated over there in that camp. I want to make whoever it is pay. A blow for a blow.


BARAK

"If they could shoot that far. They won't hesitate shooting you. You highness. You can't risk your life."

AURELIA

"No father no. I won't let you die."

A spasm of pain contorts his face.


SOLOMON

"I love you Aurelia."


AURELIA

(In tears)

"I love you father."

Solomon's fading fast. A spit of blood. His eyes close. He gives still.


AURELIA

"Father! Father! Father!"

(Shaking him hardly)

"You can't die on me."

Almond feels his pulse. There isn't any.


ALMOND

"He is passed my queen."

:No! No! No!. How about my mother Almond."


ALMOND

"The queen passed on already your highness. Am so sorry."

"And never will I ever disappoint you mother."

Zemora on her one knee.

"My queen!"


GEET

"We believe queen Aurelia is heading into the trap we set for her."

Taking her thrown seat


GATHIKA

"Head on Geet and please close the door."

Geet heads out shoting the door behind him.


ZEMORA

"She scares you mother doesn't she?"


GATHIKA

"I won't deny she has all the ways of the Earth mother from the legends we've always been told. And I hope not this time will the gods grant them that gift."


ZEMORA

"Is the earth mother chosen by the gods?"


GATHIKA

"Yes. every after thousands of years."

"she won't be in this kingdom. Hopefully not in Ephesus either".


ZEMORA

"Why is that?"


GATHIKA

"Ephesus would get stronger for me to conquer. undefeated. being the greatest kingdom ever. Like it has been for the passed many years."


ZEMORA

"Why wasn't she the target? I could have killed her as well."


GATHIKA

"She without her trained warrior is worthless. All we have to do is kill the warriors she will be sent. Get our knights surround the forests. Any group of female by the number of twelve should be killed."


ZEMORA

"That won't be hard. We will launch an ambush for them and none will survive."


GATHIKA

"Don't be silly my child. Those knights are trained by a god. They will be strong. So your men should be strong as well."

"I hope none survive".

Alexander and basil try to catch up with Aurelia but she rides so fast.


SELÇUK LANDS (MELODY'S CAMPS)

AURELIA

(Whispering to Alexander)

"This is a trap."


ALEXANDER

"We have to return your highness. This isn't a good."


AURELIA

"Shhhhhh...... quiet."

Aurelia pulls up her sword pointing down. Her eyes aiming down as well. She thrusts it into the ground. A loud scream for an ambush alert blows there ears. Men start arriving from different corners of the camp surrounding them.

Aurelia counts them in a snap.there about thirty and a few more. Draws her sword pointing at one of the men who was facing her.


MAN

"Attack."

Swords slashing. Aurelia slaying them relentlessly. Alexander in her back throwing blows as well. Basil, Barak and Adrian fighting in each other's backs. In a while, all men were on the ground. Aurelia picked up one by the armer.


AURELIA

(Loudly)

"Go tell your Gathika that am coming for her."

Aurelia hops back to her horse riding back to ephesus.


EPHESUS PALACE (BRIDGE ENTRANCE)

Horses shuddering outside the gate. A scream from inside for the gate to open for the queen. Aurelia heads, off her horse rushing into the palace.

Lord Alec is standing at the thrown room entrance. Aurelia approaches him.

(To Alec)

"Where are my parents?"
