[Big panel. Establishing shot of the hallway Kih and Hedwig is in.]
Hedwig: Cat! Are you still alive?
[Shot of Kih, standing, looking shocked. H's speech bubble looks too muffled to hear.]
Kih: I never would 'ave...
Fey: Your friend appears to be calling you.
Kih: She is not my friend.
Fey: Still... You should go to her. It will not be safe for you here much longer.
Kih: [turns to leave]
Fey: I have enjoyed our talk. I'm sorry you will forget about it when you leave.
[Hedwig is looking at the blasted-in door.]
[Kih appears in the door.]
Hedwig: What was in there?!
Kih: [looks back] I... I do not remember...
Hedwig: [annoyed] Stupid cat! I'll take a look myself!
Kih: [suddenly points down the hall] 'Umans approaching!
[Bigish panel. Hedwig blasts the hallway. It collapses.]
[Hedwig hurridly gestures to cast a spell.]
[Her movement abruptly stops]
Anowa: [off-panel] You've destroyed our property, you've set free our prisoners, and you've somehow trespassed on our home...
[Big panel. Anowa emerges from a small hallway, along with Himo and a few others.]
Anowa: Please don't tell me you thought you'd get away, too.
[Big, vertical panel. Guard grabs Kih's arm.]
[Kih looks over the shoulder, at the guard.]
Kih: (No. No. No. NO!!!!!)
[closeup of K's face]
Kih: (Liar! Bitch! Traitor! Take my freedom, take it twice! Traitor, murderer!)
[Kih hits the guard with her elbow]
[Guard bashes the back of her head.]
[Kih on her knees. Dazzled.]
Kih: (No. No. No...)
Guard: Emperor... What should we do with it?
Anowa: [enthusiastic] Gee, I don't know! Maybe you could-
Anowa: [switches to frowning] - bring her back to her cell?!
Kih: (Bitch! No. No, I will... I must...)
[close-up of Kih's face]
Kih: (I must get back.)
[Page is cut in three.]
[First panel. Kih pushes herself off from the guard. Epic jump.]
[She jumps through the air. (possibly using the wall for more momentum).]
[Third panel. Kih lands quite far from the humans.]
[Kih runs off.]
[the humans are looking, surprised]
Random guy: What...
[in the background, a small soldier is running towards them. Himo looks surprised.]
[The small soldier catches up, while Anowa demonstrably lifts a pen]
Anowa: Let the cat go. It won't get far, anyway.
Anowa: [points at little soldier] You! Get a few men and seal this door! The Emperor has demanded that the Doctor is sealed off at all times!
[the soldier salutes. It's Jay.]
J: Yes, m'm.
[K bumps into wall]
[She grabs wall, looks desperate]
Kih: Please... please...
Kih: [closes eyes] Someone, anyone... grant me a way out.
[K's eyes are still closed]
[Big panel. K is standing, back against wall. Floating picture accompany her thoughts.]
Kih: If they can enter via secure portals [picture of Micelo using a pen]... then there will be no regular exits for me to use.
Kih: Still, the prisoners need maintenance... Would they carry food and waste through small doors and halls?
Kih: [looks around] Hmm.
[Huge panel. The city and the Emperor's fortress from the outside.]
[zooming in on the river and the city wall above it.]
[It grows dark.]
[It grows into day.]
[Suddenly, a portal appears in the city wall above the river.]
[Waste is thrown out into the river]
[Kih drops out]
[Kih splashes against the water among the waste.]
[she fights herself to shore. The stream moves slowly away from the city, but its path is blocked by a grid.]
Kih: [heaves herself to dry land] Ow.
[crooked page. Reflecting Kih's fractured state of mind.]
[big, crooked panel. Kih staggers off through a street.]
Kih: (I must... I must get back.)
[smaller, crooked panel. Kih leans against a wall for support.]
Kih: (Must... traitor, bitch. Please.)
[The city walls get within sight.]
Kih: (So... 'urts... this 'eadache. I 'ate you.)
[Fragmented panel. Each word in its own fragment.]
Kih: (Kih. Put your mind back together.)
[Splash page. Kih is looking out of the city gate. A huge army of walking and flying creatures are approaching, along with a variety of animals.]
Kih: (You will need it.)
