In A restaurant. Pantellon-ess is sitting at the table. Next to her are her servants Zanni and Arlecinno.

Isabella and Sylvio run in, holding hands. Their faces are ridiculously happy and they are walking on tiptoes. Pantellon-ess growls at them. They are very late.

Pantellon-ess

You're late.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Isabella

Sorry, mother. Sylvio and I were... um... err... having some... err... um... biscuits.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Sylvio

Yes! Definitely biscuits.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno

What kind of biscuits?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

Be quiet, Arlecinno.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Zanni

Biscuits? Did someone say biscuits?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Zanni runs forward at the mention of biscuits. Pantellon-ess slaps him powerfully. He screams out in pain, then goes to Arlecinno.

Isabella

Mother, this is Sylvio.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Sylvio looks embarrased. He has no idea what to say.

Sylvio

Hello.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

Hello.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess (CONT'D)

Why don't you we have some wine?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

She points at Zanni and Arlecinno. They run off to fetch wine.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess (CONT'D)

So... Sylvio, have you heard of the new mansion on auction? The one up north?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Sylvio

Erm...

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Meanwhile, Zanni and Arlecinno spill the wine. They go down on their knees and start licking it off the floor. No one notices.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

What about those new paintings at the gallery? How many has your family bought?

Sylvio

Erm...

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

Are you not interested in culture?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Isabella

Mother... he's a...

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

She whispers something to him. Pantellon-ess jumps up instantly.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

He's a servant!?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Isabella

Yes. But I love him! And love will break down any barriers.

Pantellon-ess

Except the ones I will put around your room! You are never to see him again.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno gets up.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno

You just got told!

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

Be quiet, Arlecinno.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno goes back to licking up the wine.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess (CONT'D)

What are you doing?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno

Drinking the wine. It was spilled.

Pantellon-ess

Deal with Sylvio for me, please.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno and Zanni run towards Sylvio. Zanni runs straight at him, while Arlecinno sneaks up on him. Sylvio sidesteps Zanni's charge. Zanni hits the wall and collapeses, unconscious.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno is cleverer. He sneaks up behind Sylvio and kicks him in the bottom. Sylvio spins round, screaming in pain, and punches him in the face.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Arlecinno

I hate this job!

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Pantellon-ess

Sylvio, you have saved me. You are wotrhy to be my daughter's boyfriend.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Outside, PAntellon-ess, Isabella and SYlvio are walking and joking.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Isabella

Do you think we've forgotten something?

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Sylvio

No. Don't worry.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

In the restaurant.

PurpleWatermelon - on 04/01/2014

Zanni wakes up. He looks around, confused. He quickly runs over to the wine and carries on licking it.
