A Soliloquy from Macbeth for character Fleance: Act 3, scene 4
(Fleance enters. He appears distraught and tired. He’s been running for a while)
(Fleance has a quick look around)
I think here is safe. How could this be happening to us? What has my father ever done wrong to deserve this terrible fate? Who would have ever done such a thing to my father, a brave warrior and a great man who always acted on his beliefs and was honest and loyal to those he held dear. Revenge, how can I take revenge when I don’t know even who my enemy is?
(Fleance walks around and thinks for a while then suddenly he realizes something)
Or it was the prophecy father told me about while we were riding. He said since the day he and Macbeth met the witches on that health and knew about their fates, he would not be weakened by those dark temptations but Macbeth is what he worried about. Macbeth seemed changed after the first part of the prophecy quickly came true and gave him the title Thane of Cawdor. Father tried to dissuade Macbeth, he told Macbeth the creatures of the dark can’t be trusted, sometimes they tell us part of the truth in order to win our heart then betray us in the deepest consequence but Macbeth didn’t seem to listen.
