Scene Two

The small kitchen/dining room of a run-down apartment. A door opens, and Young Vera walks in and sits down at the battered table. She is heavily pregnant, and seems depressed. She picks up a knife sitting on the table and weighs it up in her hands, her expression becoming wistful, then determined.

02 Before Her Birth
Vera

I see you in the mirror
I see you over my shoulder
And it's like you never left
Then the realisation hits me
And I break down in tears again
Just like I've done each time
Ever since your death

When I feel my child within me
There comes a wave of grief that I just can't contain
I know she'll grow up without a father
But I'll make sure she knows
Your sacrifice
Was not made in vain

And I promise I will avenge you
Because I'll love you till the end of the earth
And I'll take the lives of all who dare oppose me
Because they're the ones who left my child fatherless
Even before her birth

And I promise I will avenge you
Because I'll love you till the end of the earth
And I'll take the lives of all who dare oppose me
Because they're the ones that left my child fatherless
Even before her birth

Curtain falls
