SCENE 2. HORN OF VALERE
MUSIC: (BRIDGE) MELODIC THEME, FADE UNDER
We now continue with Part Two of The Horn of Valere.
[Frightened] You? NO!
Now, Mat, is that any way to treat two old friends?
[Playful] You'd think just because his girl broke up the team, we'd be holding it against him or something.
[Annoyed] You better come in.
(SOUNDS OF FOOTSTEPS, SHUFFLING, DOOR CLOSES)
Where is she, anyway?
(SOUNDS OF FLASHBACK. FADE IN SOUNDS OF DOCKYARD, MEN LOADING NEARBY BOAT)
You have a country to run, and I've a job to do here. Where I'm going you can't follow. What I've got to do you can't help with. Tuon, I'm not a bloody noble. Someday you'll understand that. You've got to get on that boat. If you don't, you'll regret it, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of your life.
But what about us, Toy?
We'll always have Ebou Dar.
(SOUNDS OF FLASHBACK. FADE IN SOUNDS OF RAIN)
She's gone to where she should be.
So there's nothing stopping you from coming back to the team?
It's not the same without you. We talked Nynaeve and Egwene into coming with us for a bit, and even Hopper tagged along, but the only case we could find was a haunting of a mill in Devon Ride, and that turned out to just be Old Man Coplin in a mask.
Alright, fine. [Pause for thinking]
I've got a possible client. You guys find Thom. If I know him, he's around here somewhere. With our luck, he's probably downstairs singing.
Yeah, Thom's got the rhythmic, improvised music we need.
Light, we don't need music, we need better writing. Once you get him, meet me at the Horned Stag by the east gate. Expect trouble.
(KNOCK ON DOOR, FEMININE GIGGLE)
And get out, will ya? My dinner is here.
(FADE OUT ALL SOUND)

This has been Part Two of "The Horn of Valere," an Ear of the World production. What is this team that he used to belong to? Was there, in fact, decent wine with dinner? Just how long will this show continue before we actually get to the plot? We'll be back after a few more commercial announcements.
