EXT. summit of volcano - Stormy day

Jackalai - on 02/08/2012 2 versions.

The viking warrior MAGNUS walks briskly to a large volcanic rock with a flat top. His almost-fiance HELGAR stands off at a distance, horror and shame on her face. She grasps the rocks around her for support.

Magnus reaches the rocky table and carefully places the engagement ring on the surface. The facets of the diamond reflect the light from the surging lava blasts from the crater behind.

Magnus raises his hammer up high, his muscled arm tense. Lightning rips through the sky. With all his might, he swings his hammer down. There is an earth-shattering CRACK as the hammer strikes.

There is an earth-shattering CRACK as the hammer strikes. The whole volcano rumbles, and massive plumes of lava explode into the sky. Debris and rock fly everywhere.

Magnus pulls his hammer back and peers at the rock. The entire rock has been broken in two, with shards scattered everywhere. The crack from the blow extends down into the rock of the volcano itself.

Magnus peers down into the crack, his eye caught by a glint of light. The diamond is still intact resting in the fissure. Confused, Magnus picks it up and examines it. It is unscratched.

As he ponders the survival of the ring, the fissure created from the hammer widens. Surprised, he looks down and sees fiery cracks expanding outward below his feet.

The cracks rapidly grow, and the light from hot magma shines through. A giant fissure forms suddenly, separating him from Helgar. The ground on which Helgar stands begins to crumble and fall into the lava crater.

Helgar SCREAMS out in terror. She looks to Magnus pleadingly. Magnus looks back, his hand fingering the ring absently, lost in thought. He hesitates. Helgar CRIES OUT, this time with a note of tragic resignation in her voice.

Jackalai - on 02/08/2012

Magnus hesitates a moment more, then clenches the ring in his fist. He takes two steps back, and then runs and leaps over the widening fissure. Helgar runs to him and he hurls her to safety on the other side of the fisure.

At this point the fisure widens dramatically. It is too wide for Magnus to make the leap. With eyes blurred from smoke and tears he waves goodbye as the remaining ground below him collapses into the abyss.
