As Atreyu turns a corner he sees a painting of a wolf, then he turns another corner and sees the wolf hiding in a smaller opening. It growls wildly at Atreyu as he approaches. G'MORK If you come any closer I will rip you to shreds. Atreyu squats down where he's at and looks at the wolf. ATREYU Who are you? G'MORK I am G'mork. And you, whoever you are, can have the honor of being my last victim. ATREYU I will not die easily. I am a warrior. G'MORK (G'mork laughs) Brave warrior, then fight the nothing. ATREYU But I can't ! I can't get beyond the boundaries of Fantasia. G'mork laughs and Atreyu grows angry. ATREYU (CONT'D) What's so funny about that ? G'MORK Fantasia has no boundaries. A storm grows closer to the city, slowly shaking it to pieces… Rocks fall here and there. ATREYU That's not true. You're lying. G'MORK Foolish boy. Don't you know anything about Fantasia? It's the world of human fantasy. Every part ,every creature of it, is a piece of the dreams and hopes of mankind. Therefore, it has no boundaries. There's a crash and more rocks fall. ATREYU But why is Fantasia dying then? G'MORK Because people have begun to lose their hopes and forget their dreams. So the nothing grows stronger. ATREYU What is the nothing ?! G'MORK It's the emptiness that's left. It's like a despair, destroying this world. And I have been trying to help it. ATREYU But why? G'MORK Because people who have no hopes are easy to control. And whoever has control has the power. A large crash shakes the ground. Atreyu loses his balance for a moment, but quickly regains it and turns back to the wolf. He gives him a cold look then asks him, ATREYU Who are you really ? G'MORK I am the servant of the power behind the nothing. I was sent to kill the only one who could have stopped the nothing. I lost him in the Swamps of Sadness. His name was Atreyu. The ground shakes and Atreyu falls over backward. He grabs a long, sharp piece of broken stone and stands up. He then yells at G'mork. ATREYU If we're about to die anyway, I'd rather die fighting. Come for me G'mork ! I am Atreyu!
