AQUA runs in. Stops, mouth wide open
                                                            
                       AQUA
      (upset)
How could you do this to me! I
though you DIDN"T have a crush!!

                       SHIMMER
      (whispers, to
       PRINCE)
Meet me in the corridor at
midnight.
                                                            
PRINCE, nods to SHIMMER, leaves
                                                            
                       AQUA
      (Continued)
And there you go, behind my back,
having a secret relationship with
MY crush!?
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
      (real voice comes
       out, evil laugh)
Oh, Aqua, did you really think I
was that "goody to shoes, innocent
girl"? Haven't you ever heard me
sing to someone and they obey like
a poor puppy? Are you that
gullible?
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
      (surprised and mad)
You got your power already! You
sing, they obey? Why haven't you
told me this? I thought we were
friends!
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
He is MY Prince, you can't stop me
now.
                                                            
                       AQUA
      (hesitant)
Then, we must fight for him. To
the death!
                                                            
Whip out pitchforks
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
A duel! To the death! I agree!
Good luck!
                                                            
AQUA walks behind SHIMMER, about to stab her
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
      (turns around,
       stabs AQUA)
AHA!

       dead body)
SHIMMER! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS!

      (sings,
       controlling)
You forgot what you saw...
                                                            
                       PEARL

                       SHIMMER

                       PRINCE

       surprised)
WHAT? Is that even possible for a
mermaid!!!???
                                                            
                       SHIMMER
      (bursts in "tears")
I don't wanna talk about it!
                                                            
SHIMMER runs out
                                                            
PEARL approaches PRINCE
                                                            
                       PEARL
      (horrified)

I had my suspicions...what do you
know?
                                                            
                       PEARL
Shimmer put a spell on me to
forget what I saw, but the spell
wore off, Shimmer killed Aqua and
I shall NEVER forgive her!
