[Scene 11, The Plotters Plot --
M: Mayor, C: Councilor]
N: Some people think plots are more important than kingdoms.
M: How much longer can we pay the enemies to keep fighting us?
C: Not much. We are running out of money.
M: What about the kingdom's treasury?
C: The Queen and the Advisor check the accounts.
M: You said she would be easy to control.
C: She was once.
M: She thought she loved you once. What happened?
C: I guess the King is a better man than I am.
M: She really loves the King, I guess.
C: Snow White has more control over the Queen than I do now.
M: Fear makes it easy to control people.
M: We must make them afraid for the King.
Fear turns people's hearts.
