Steerpike:
Help me, I'm starving.

Lady Fuchsia:
Don't touch me.

Steerpike:
Listen to me...

Lady Fuchsia:
Don't touch!

Steerpike:
Listen to me. Please! I did it; I admit it. I killed Flay. You know that, don't you? I killed your aunts, I burnt the library... It was me! I burnt your father's books. I drove him mad - He killed himself because of me. But I did it all for you...

Lady Fuchsia:
I hate you.

Steerpike:
I did it all so I could be in a place where you would see me.

Lady Fuchsia:
I don't want to see you!

Steerpike:
You love me! I'm ugly and I'm disgusting and you love me. You love me because I'm the only one who can see you. You're so lonely, My Lady... I'm the only one who knows who you are and what you are.

Lady Fuchsia:
Go away from me.

Steerpike:
I know what you dream about.

Lady Fuchsia:
You do not!

Steerpike:
I do. You know I do.

Lady Fuchsia:
I have my family!

Steerpike:
Your mother? Is that a mother? She hardly looks at you. And do you have a real brother? He's so wrapped up in himself, he can't tell. He's even too weak to take what's given him! Does he love you? Does he even see who you are? [pause] I'm sorry about your father... I didn't think that would happen to him. I thought you were all so strong! I thought you were much stronger than me. I wanted to rescue you so you'd like me... Believe me, My Lady, I'm yours! You'll never know a love like mine. I will die for you. Look at me! I'm dying for you now. But I'll win... They can't stop me, because now I know: I'm stronger than all of them! For you I am... With you I am...

Lady Fuchsia:
You're so ugly.

Steerpike:
That doesn't matter anymore, does it? I will make you my queen. I will give you everything you need...

Lady Fuchsia:
Yes...

Steerpike:
Everything! Oh, Fuchsia...

Lady Fuchsia:
How dare you call me that. I am LADY Fuchsia! You call me very familiar... Kitchen boy! Guard! Guard! He's here! The kitchen brat!

Steerpike:
No, Lady Fuchsia!

Lady Fuchsia:
Do not touch me! You have no RIGHT to touch me! Guard! Guard, he's here! The rat is here!

Steerpike:
I could have given you everything... Remember that! I could have made you everything you'd ever dreamt of... [disappears through the window]
