[The Squatters are making a deal with the Palace people and the Holloway Kids about land and an alliance.]

Carl

It's like this. We'll do everything you. We'll help you grow food; we'll join up if anyone attacks. All that what you've said. We'll make a truce. On one condition.

David

Which is?

AmberStones - a year ago

John

Him there.

[Points to Achilleus]

AmberStones - a year ago

john (CONT'D)

If he can beat me in a fair fight.

AmberStones - a year ago

[Without hesitation}

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

It's a deal.

AmberStones - a year ago

Maxie

Wait. That's just stupid.

AmberStones - a year ago

Carl

Yeah? Well, it's our deal. Take it or leave it.

AmberStones - a year ago

Jester

What if we lose?

AmberStones - a year ago

Carl

If you lose, you can forget any kind of truce, and if you want to start a war, that's fine with us. We'll be ready for you.

[David pauses]

David

Wait a moment.

AmberStones - a year ago

[David and Jester go over to Achilleus for a quiet chat. There are murmurs from the rest of the kids waiting for a response.]

David (CONT'D)

Alright. You've got a deal.

AmberStones - a year ago

Maxie

Wait...

AmberStones - a year ago

[Achilleus interrupts]

Achilleus

Don't you want revenge? For what he did to Freak?

[Maxie stays quiet]

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus (CONT'D)

Revenge, Maxie.

AmberStones - a year ago

Maxie

I don't want revenge. And I don't want anymore fighting.

AmberStones - a year ago

David

It's not your decision. The two of you will fight to decide whether the truce goes ahead. Our champion against yours.

John

Alright. [shakes hands with David] The winner decides what happens between us. The loser gets buried with a nice ceremony and some flowers.

[Achilleus does a circle around the ring, carrying a spear, and Just John appears carrying a sword]

John

Kiss your boyfriend goodbye and come over here. Or are you going to bottle it?

AmberStones - a year ago

Maeve

That's an evil sword he's got there.

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

I can take him.

AmberStones - a year ago

Ollie

Don't he scare you?

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

Course he scares me, d'you think I'm nuts?

Blue

You need to make it quick. He's taller than you, with a longer reach. He'll be hard to get at.

[Interrupting the Holloway kids]

AmberStones - a year ago

Carl

Hey! You coming out to play? Or are we going to have to stand here all day for you to finish you emotional goodbyes?

[Achilleus nods to his crew and him and John walk over to the centre, stopping with about 10m between them]

John

I've never fought a gay before.

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

What's with all the insults?

AmberStones - a year ago

John

Oh sorry, darling, am I upsetting you?

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

If you fancy me why don't you just say?

AmberStones - a year ago

John

Is that the best you've got?

AmberStones - a year ago

Achilleus

It's all you deserve. Now, are you going to talk or are you going to fight?

AmberStones - a year ago

[David steps forward out of the crowd]

David

When I give the word, the fight will begin. Now let's not forget that...

AmberStones - a year ago

[Achilleus and John run towards each other, ignoring David, and the fight begins]
