Pan's Labrynth - Captain's Task

Extracts from this document...


Captain's Task: "Leave us now, my honest guards. Go and nag the pathetic cook to make me something appetizing for my lunch. Now, back to you Mercedes, I have always thought you were someone I could trust, someone I could rely on." Mercedes cowered helplessly against the stony wall as the Captain slowly shadowed over her. His beady black eyes glared ferociously at her as he spoke, "You and me, we had a special trust, what happened?" His face filled with concern. He then turned around, with his back facing towards her, poured 2 generous glasses of alcohol in and put them on a tray. Mercedes took the hidden knife from her neatly pleated dress and cut the tight rope from her tiny hands. "I grew up and realised what a ruthless, greedy pig you are." She replied bluntly.

I'm the one who just saved your life, give me a break! I do the hero thing for once, ad I still get told off!" Juan took a long puff on the cigar, and the passed it onto another rebel. "Look, I don't want you getting hurt, so make sure you take care of yourself. I won't always be there to look after you, so remember that." Mercedes stood straight, smoothed her creased up dress and gave her brother a hug. "I will go and finish my duty, and you go finish yours, ok?" "Si, si, mi hermana, I will succeed. Do not worry," Reassured Mercedes' brother. Slowly, Mercedes walked off into the sunset, where a huge mission awaited her. She and her brother would just have to wait and see what would happen.
