Thing a Day 10


Prince Humperduck is still tracking Butterquack.

Humperduck: Someone has beaten the giant. There will be great suffering in Guilder if she dies.


Meanwhile, the Duck in Black has taken Butterquack and fled with her. They stop to catch their breath. She offers him a ransom for her release. He scoffs.


Humperduck: Iocane. I bet my life on it. And there are the princess’s footprints. She is alive. Or was an hour ago. If she is otherwise when I find her, I shall be very put out.


Duck in Black: Rest, Highness.

Butterquack: I know who you are. Your cruelty reveals everything. You’re the Dread Pirate Roberts. Admit it!

Duck in Black: With pride. What can I do for you?

Butterquack: You can die slowly, cut into a thousand pieces.

Duck in Black: Hardly complimentary, your Highness. Why loose your venom on me?

Butterquack: You killed my love.

She pushes him into the ravine.


Duck in Black: As you wish!

Butterquack realizes that the Duck in Black is in fact her beloved Westley and throws herself into the ravine after him.


Westley: Can you move at all?

Butterquack: Move? You’re alive. If you want I could fly.
