I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

Part 51

Ted enters the bottom room and finds himself in a plain looking servants work room, with something not so plain.

Ted: What happened to Ellen?
Maid: Lady Ellen? She's been ill, and that's all I know. It's not healthy to ask too many questions these days. Let's talk about you instead.

T: Is there a way to escape from this castle?
M: Escape? With all those wolves in the forest? It's safer to stay in the castle. The beds are very cozy. You should try mine sometime.

T: Where can I find a mirror?
M: What do you want with a mirror? Those are pretty rare, what with an ugly woman in charge of this castle.

T: Please. I need to find a mirror.
M: And you are what I need. I'll make a deal with you. I will tell you where you can find a mirror if you spend some quality time in my bed.

Ted is tempted, but 109 years of torture has taught him to be distrustful and paraniod. He also loves Ellen and doesn't want to betray her.

T: That's a flattering offer, but I'm not interested.
M: I'll give you what you need. Hasn't it been too long for you?

T: Sorry, but it's out of the question.
M: What's the matter? Aren't I good enough for you? Not classy enough? Not rich enough?

T: I'm sure you're a fine woman, but my heart belongs to another.
M: So, you're in love with that thing sleeping in her bed. Have you ever been with one, or are you just curious? I can make you so much happier. I can, you know.

T: Look, I am not going to make love with you!
M: Oh, all right. I have another deal for you. The oven's broken. If you fix it, I'll get you a mirror.

Off to look for an old woman.
