尼瑞姆-木精灵,男,20岁,盗贼

希拉努斯·克拉特里-帝国人,51岁,商人

多米尼提娅·克拉特里-希拉努斯的妻子,40岁

艾尔娃·克拉特里-希拉努斯和多米尼提娅的女儿,16岁

米尼斯特斯·克拉特里-希拉努斯和多米尼提娅的儿子,11岁

环境:位于因为闹鬼而在夏丁赫尔赫赫有名的克拉特里老宅的第一层和第二层,作为一个另有故事的舞台成为大部分活动发生的地点。

舞台上一片漆黑。

黑暗中传来一阵吱嘎声,与此同时有脚步声在楼梯上响起,一阵呼吸声萦绕着,但我们依然什么都看不到。

没过一会儿,一个声音从上面传来。

艾尔娃(自幕后):喂?有人在下面吗? 米尼斯特斯(自幕后):要不我去叫醒爸爸? 艾尔娃(自幕后):不……也许我能想象得到……

一束从油灯中发出的光出现在楼上,身材苗条的美丽少女,艾尔娃,带着焦虑匆忙地从舞台右边的楼梯上走下。

依靠油灯发出的光,我们可以看见我们正看着一幢充满灰尘的老宅的第二层,在舞台的右方有一段向上的楼梯和一段向下的楼梯。一个未点燃的石壁炉坐卧在舞台的左方。一张桌子,一只上锁的箱子,和一个衣橱组成了舞台的布景。

米尼斯特斯(自幕后):艾尔娃,你在做什么?

艾尔娃:我只是在整理窗帘……回到床上去,米尼斯特斯!

当少女从桌子旁走过时,我们可以看到一个名叫尼瑞姆的木精灵优雅地从她的视野中划过,小心避让着汇聚的灯光。她并没有发觉他正蹑手蹑脚地向她走近,他的脚步在坚硬的木地板上显得很寂静。

当他几乎来到她面前时,下面突然发出了巨大的响声。这使木精灵立刻跳开,重新隐藏在了桌子后。

少女似乎并没有听到这响声,而尼瑞姆则从桌子后面窥视着她。

米尼斯特斯(自幕后):找到什么了吗?

艾尔娃:没有。这也许只是我的想象,不过我要去下面确认一下。

米尼斯特斯(自幕后):那里有火吗?我很冷……

艾尔娃把头转向了熄灭的壁炉,尼瑞姆也随之转向。

艾尔娃:这里当然有火啊,你没有听到它在噼啪作响吗?

米尼斯特斯(自幕后):我也这么认为。

艾尔娃突然像听到了我们没有听到的什么似的跳了一下。她把她的注意力转向了一楼。

艾尔娃:谁?

艾尔娃面前的灯笼开始向下移动。她似乎并没有看见一个名叫希奥芬的帝国人正带着一大包东西和他的油灯从她面前冷静地走过。

希奥芬:原谅我,年轻的女士。原谅我抢劫了你们。

艾尔娃继续缓慢而又焦虑地向下走着,这时我们可以依靠她的油灯来看到她。她环视着那低低的天花板,完全没注意到眼前被完全偷完的房间,仿佛依旧有什么事情在楼上发生着。

希奥芬的油灯依旧为让二楼笼罩着一层昏暗的光。

希奥芬:你为什么躲着,尼瑞姆?让我告诉你,他们看不见你,他们也听不见你。

尼瑞姆不好意思地从桌子后面走了出来。

尼瑞姆:我不敢相信他们都是幽灵,他们看起来是如此鲜活。

希奥芬:这让他们成为了幽灵这种超自然的东西。不过他们似乎并不像伤害我们。他们只是重现着过去的时光,就像别的幽灵那样。

尼瑞姆:这是他们被杀的那一夜。

希奥芬:赶快停止你正在想的东西否则你就要像幽灵一样了。我拿到了一楼所有能拿到的东西,银烛台、丝绸,甚至还有一些金子,你有什么收获?

尼瑞姆举起了他那空空如也的袋子。

尼瑞姆:对不起,希奥芬,我才刚刚打算开始……

希奥芬:去开箱子吧,这是你来这的目的。

尼瑞姆:好吧。我有才能,而你有谋划,还有装备。你有好好的装满油灯吗?我可不能在黑暗中工作。

希奥芬:别担心,尼瑞姆。我保证,不会有意外的。

正当尼瑞姆跳开时,男孩米尼斯特斯出现在了楼梯上。小伙子轻轻地从楼上溜下,向着壁炉走去。他的动作就像在给壁炉拨开于禁加木材一般,尽管那里没有木材,没有余烬,更没有火。

希奥芬:我们拥有世界上所有的时间,我的朋友。没有人会靠近这座老宅。如果有人看见了灯光,只会认为这是鬼魂罢了。

当希奥芬打开一个衣橱开始浏览里面充斥着腐烂衣服的东西时,尼瑞姆开始试着打开抽屉上的锁。

尼瑞姆的精力显得很不集中,他开始盯着那个年轻的男孩。

尼瑞姆:嘿,希奥芬,你知道他们死了多久了吗?

希奥芬:大概五年了吧,你为什么问这个?

尼瑞姆:只是为了能说说话。

在他们谈话的时候,楼下的艾尔娃终于搜索完了小房间,表现出把门关上的样子。

希奥芬:我有把整个故事告诉过你吗?

尼瑞姆:没有,你只是和我说‘嘿,我知道一个什么人都没有,只有幽灵的房子’。我以为你在开玩笑。

希奥芬:这不是玩笑,我的伙伴。五年前,克拉特里一家就住在这里。他们是非常好的一户人家。你刚才看到的是女儿艾尔娃和儿子米尼斯特斯。他们的父母是希拉努斯和多米尼提娅,我依然清楚地记得这些。

尼瑞姆成功地打开了箱子,开始检查。正当他做这些时,米尼斯特斯从“火”边起身,显示出正在取暖的样子,站在了向下楼梯的楼梯口。

米尼斯特斯:嘿!

男孩的声音使尼瑞姆、希奥芬和艾尔娃都跳了起来。

艾尔娃:你为什么不在床上?我正要去检查地下室,

米尼斯特斯:我在等你。

尼瑞姆:发生了什么?

希奥芬:他们被撕成了碎片。尽管有无数的传闻,没人知道是谁做了这些。

艾尔娃打开了通往地下室的门,走了进去。光从一楼消失了。米尼斯特斯耐心地在楼梯口,哼着小曲。

尼瑞姆:那是什么样的传闻?

希奥芬在衣橱中搜索完衣橱,开始帮助尼瑞姆清点箱子中的金子。

希奥芬:不错的收入,对吧?哦,你刚才说传闻。嗯,他们说老妇人多米尼提娅在嫁给希尔努斯之前是一个女巫。她为他放弃了这一切来成为一个好妻子和好母亲。但是巫师们对此并不高兴。他们找到了她,然后把一些可怕的生物送了过去。可怕的东西,组成了一个真实的噩梦。

米尼斯特斯:艾尔娃?艾尔娃,你怎么还没出来?

尼瑞姆:神啊,难道我们要眼睁睁地看着他们在我们面前被杀?

米尼斯特斯:艾尔娃!

希尔努斯(自幕后):下面有什么事?不要四处玩耍了,小伙子,回去睡觉。

米尼斯特斯:爸爸!

米尼斯特斯害怕地跑向通往三楼的楼梯。在途中他撞向了尼瑞姆,把他撞到了。男孩似乎没有注意装了人,继续跑向黑暗中的三楼,从舞台上消失了。

希奥芬:你还好吗?

尼瑞姆立刻跳了起来,脸色发白。

尼瑞姆:别在意这些!他碰到了我?!一个幽灵怎么可能碰到我?!

希奥芬:嗯,他们当然能碰到你。通过某些方法。你听说过被祖先的精神保护着坟墓吗,那是他们在匕首雨的灵魂之王。如果他们碰不到你,那么他们有什么用?为什么你如此吃惊?我想你认为他们应该直接穿过你。

尼瑞姆:是的!

屋主希尔努斯谨慎地从楼梯上走下。

多米尼提娅:别把我们单独留下,希尔努斯。我们要跟着你!

希尔努斯:等等,这里很黑。让我先弄点光。

希尔努斯向寒冷的壁炉走去,伸手向前,很快他手上有了一支小小的燃烧着的火炬。尼瑞姆恐惧地向后跑了几步。

尼瑞姆:我感觉到了!我感觉到了火焰的热量!

希尔努斯:下来吧。没事的。

米尼斯特斯带着母亲走下楼与父亲会和。

希奥芬:我不知道你为什么如此惊慌,尼瑞姆。我必须说我很失望。我没想到你是一个如此迷信的人。

希奥芬往楼上走去。

尼瑞姆:我们要去哪儿?

希奥芬:还有一个楼层要搜索呢。

尼瑞姆:我们就不能马上离开吗?

尼瑞姆看着一家三口跟着希尔努斯的火炬,向一楼走去。

希尔努斯:艾尔娃?说点什么,艾尔娃。

希奥芬:你看到了吗?如果你不喜欢幽灵,那么就去三楼。下面有四个幽灵。

希奥芬向上走去,消失在舞台上,但是尼瑞姆站在楼梯口,向下看着一家人。一家三口正在像艾尔娃一样环视这着一楼,最后来到了地下室的门前。

尼瑞姆:四……个?

希尔努斯打开了地下室的门。

希尔努斯:艾尔娃?你在地下室里做什么呢,孩子?

多米尼提娅:你看到她了?

尼瑞姆:全部四个,希奥芬?

希尔努斯:我想是的……我看到了什么人……喂?

尼瑞姆:如果有五个幽灵怎么办,希奥芬?

希尔努斯把火炬伸进了地下室的门,火炬马上就熄灭了。一楼陷入了黑暗中。

米尼斯特斯、多米尼提娅和希尔努斯开始尖叫,但是我们无法看到他们发生了什么。

尼瑞姆近乎歇斯底里地和他们以前尖叫起来。希奥芬从三楼跑了下来。

希奥芬:怎么回事?

尼瑞姆:如果有五个幽灵怎么办?男人、妻子、女孩、男孩……和杀了他们的东西?

希奥芬:什么杀了他们?

尼瑞姆:如果这个幽灵也能碰到我们怎么办?就像他们做的那样!

从黑暗中的一楼穿了门打开的响声,尽管我们无法看到门的打开。然后出现了一个沉重的充满爪子的球状物。与此同时,楼梯上响起了脚步声。

希奥芬:不要变得这么低落。如果那东西能碰到我们,你认为他想要什么?其他所有人都没有注意到我们。

希奥芬的油灯慢慢的变得昏暗。他仔细地调节着。

尼瑞姆:但是……但是如果那东西不是一个幽灵,希奥芬。如果那东西是个相同的生物,而且它依然活着……而且它从五年前就没有吃过任何东西了……

脚步声在楼梯上缓慢而又沉重地响起,但是我们依旧什么都看不到。尼瑞姆发现尽管希奥芬在努力地修整,油灯的依旧缓缓变暗。

尼瑞姆:你说过你把油灯加满了!

光缓缓地熄灭,舞台被黑暗充斥了。

尼瑞姆:你向我保证过你充满了油灯!

随着越来越多的脚步声和令人战栗的嚎叫。两个人开始尖叫起来。

幕布落下了。

The Legend of Krately House
by Baloth-Kul
A play about the ghostly Krately family and how they died


DRAMATIS PERSONAE
 
THEOPHON - Imperial man, 24, thief
NIRIM - Bosmer man, 20, thief
SILANUS KRATELY - Imperial man, 51, merchant
DOMINITIA KRATELY - His wife, 40
AELVA KRATELY - Their daughter, 16
MINISTES KRATELY - Their son, 11
 
Setting: The famous haunted Krately House in Cheydinhal, first and second floors, requiring a stage with a second story where most of the action takes place.
 


The stage is dark.

There is a CREAKING noise, footsteps on the stairs, the sound of a man breathing, but still we see nothing.

Then, a voice calls from above.

 
AELVA (off stage): Hello? Is someone down there?
MINESTES (off stage): Should I wake up Papa?
AELVA (off stage): No... Maybe I was imagining it...


A light from a lantern can be seen coming from the upstairs, and the slim form of a beautiful young girl, AELVA, descends the staircase at stage right, nervously.



From the light of the lantern, we can see that we are looking at the second floor of a dusty old house, with a set of stairs going up and another one going down on stage right. An unlit stone fireplace sits at stage left. A table, a locked chest, and a wardrobe complete the furnishings.

MINESTES (off stage): Aelva, what are you doing?
AELVA: I'm just making certain... Go back to bed, Minestes.


As the girl passes the table, we see a Bosmer NIRIM slide gracefully up from behind and around her field of sight, carefully avoiding the pool of light. She doesn't appear to see him as he creeps closer to her, his footsteps silent on the hard wooden floor.



When he is almost on her, there is a sudden CRASH from down below. This causes the Bosmer to leap away, hiding again behind the table.



The girl does not seem to notice the sound, and Nirim, peeking out from behind the table, watches her.

MINESTES (off stage): Found anything?
AELVA: No. Probably just my imagination, but I'm just going to check downstairs.
MINESTES (off stage): Is there a fire? I'm cold...


Aelva looks towards the long dead fireplace, and so does Nirim.

AELVA: Of course there is. Can't you hear it crackling?
MINESTES (off stage): I guess so...


Aelva suddenly jumps as if she heard something which we do not. She turns her attention down the stairs to the first floor.

AELVA: Hello?


Aelva, lantern ahead of her, begins the descent. She does not seem to notice as an Imperial, THEOPHON, carrying a big bag of loot and a lantern of his own, calmly walks up right past her.

THEOPHON: Excuse me, young lady. Just robbing you.


Aelva continues her slow, nervous walk downstairs, which we can now see thanks to her light. She looks around the low-ceilinged, thoroughly looted room as the action continues upstairs



Theophon's lantern provides the dim light for the second floor.

THEOPHON: Why are you hiding, Nirim? I told you. They can't see you, and they can't hear you.


Nirim sheepishly steps out from behind the table.

NIRIM: I can't believe they're all ghosts. They seem so alive.
THEOPHON: That's what spooks them superstitians. But they ain't going to hurt us. Just reliving the past, the way ghosts do.
NIRIM: The night they was murdered.
THEOPHON: Stop thinking about that or you'll get yourself all willy spooked. I got all kinds of stuff on the first floor - silver candlesticks, silk, even some gold... What'd you get?


Nirim holds up his empty bag.

NIRIM: Sorry, Theophon, I was just about to start...
THEOPHON: Get to work on that chest then. That's what you're here for.
NIRIM: Oh yeah. I got the talent, you got the ideas... and the equipment. You refilled that lantern before we came here, right? I can't work in the dark...
THEOPHON: Don't worry, Nirim. I promise. No surprises.


Nirim jumps when a young boy, MINESTES, appears on the stairs. The lad creeps down quietly and goes to the fire. He acts as if he's stoking a fire, feeding it wood, poking at the embers, though there is no wood, no poker, no fire.:

THEOPHON: We got all the time in the world, friend. No one comes near this house. If they sees our lantern light, they'll just assume it's the ghosts.


Nirim begins picking the lock on a chest of drawers, while Theophon opens a wardrobe and begins going through the contents, which are mostly rotten cloth.



Nirim is distracted, looking at the young boy.

NIRIM: Hey, Theophon, how long ago did they die?
THEOPHON: About five years ago. Why you asking?
NIRIM: Just making conversation.


As they talk, Aelva, downstairs, finally having searched the small room, acts as if she's locking the front door.

THEOPHON: Didn't I already tell you the story?
NIRIM: No, you just said, hey, I know a place we can burgle where no one's at home, except for the ghosts. I thought you was joking.
THEOPHON: No joking, partner. Five years ago, the Kratelys lived here. Nice people. You seen the daughter Aelva and the boy Minestes. The parents were Silenus and Dominitia, if I remembers rightly.


Nirim successfully unlocks the chest and begins rummaging through it. While he does so, Ministes gets up from the ‘fire,' apparently warmed up, and stands at the top of the stairs down.

MINISTES: Hey!


The boy's voice causes Nirim, Theophon, and Aelva to all jump.

AELVA: Why aren't you in bed? I'm just going to check the cellar.
MINISTES: I'll wait for you.
NIRIM: So, what happened?
THEOPHON: Oh, they was rip to piece. Halfway eaten. No one ever knew who or what did it neither. Though there was rumors...


Aelva opens the door to the cellar, and goes in. The light disappears from the first floor. Ministes patiently waits at the top of the stairs, humming a little song to himself.

NIRIM: What kind of rumors?


Theophon, having exhausted the possibilities in the wardrobe, helps Nirim sort through the gold in the chest.

THEOPHON: Pretty good haul, eh? Oh, the rumors. Well, they says old lady Dominitia was a witch before she married Silenus. Gave it all up for him, to be a good wife and mother. But the witches didn't take too kindly to it. They found her and sent some kind of creature here, late at night. Something horrible, right out of a nightmare.
MINISTES: Aelva? Aelva, what's taking you so long?
NIRIM: Ye Gods, are we going to watch them get killed, right in front of us?
MINISTES: Aelva!
SILENUS (off stage): What's happening down there? Stop playing around, boy, and go to sleep.
MINISTES: Papa!


Ministes, frightened, runs to the stairs up. Along the way, he bumps into Nirim, who falls down. The boy does not seem to notice but continues on up to the dark third floor sleeping porch, off-stage.

THEOPHON: Are you all right?


Nirim jumps to his feet, white-faced.

NIRIM: Never mind that! He touched me?! How can a ghost touch me?!
THEOPHON: Well... Of course they can. Some anyhow. You heard of ancestor spirits guarding tombs, and that ghost of the king they had in Daggerfall. If they don't touch you, what good are they ? Why you so surprised? You thought he'd move right through you, I figger.
NIRIM: Yes!
SILENUS, the man of the house, comes down the stairs, cautiously.
DOMINITIA (off stage): Don't leave us alone, Silenus! We're coming with you!
SILENUS: Wait, it's dark. Let me get some light.


Silenus goes to the cold fireplace, sticks his hand forward, and suddenly in his arm, there's a lit, burning torch. Nirim scrambles back, horrified.

NIRIM: I felt that! I felt the heat of the fire!
SILENUS: Come on down. It's all right.


Ministes leads his mother DOMINITIA down the stairs where they join Silenus.

THEOPHON: I don't know why you so scared, Nirim. I must say I'm disappointed. I didn't figger you for a supersitionalist.


Theophon goes for the stairs up.

NIRIM: Where are you going?
THEOPHON: One more floor to search.
NIRIM: Can't we just go?


Nirim watches as the family of three, following Silenus and his torch, walk down towards the first floor.

SILENUS: Aelva? Say something, Aelva.
THEOPHON: There, you see? If you don't like ghosts, third floor's the place to be. All four of em are downstairs now.


Theophon goes upstairs, off-stage, but Nirim stands at the top of the stairs, looking down at the family. The three look around the first floor as Aelva did, finally turning towards the cellar door.

NIRIM: All... four?


Silenus opens the cellar door.

SILENUS: Aelva? What are you doing down in the cellar, girl?
DOMINITIA: You see her?
NIRIM: All four, Theophon?
SILENUS: I think so... I see someone... Hello?
NIRIM: What if there's five ghosts, Theophon?!


Silenus thrusts his torch in through the cellar door, and it is suddenly extinguished. The first floor falls into darkness.



Ministes, Dominitia, and Silenus SCREAM, but we cannot see what is happening to them.



Nirim is nearly hysterical, screaming along with them. Theophon runs downstairs from the third floor.

THEOPHON: What is it?!
NIRIM: What if there is five ghosts?! The man, the wife, the girl, the boy... and what killed them?!
THEOPHON: And what killed them?
NIRIM: And what if it's a ghost that can touch us too?! Just like the others!


From the darkened first floor, there is a CREAK of a door opening, though we cannot see it. And then, there is a heavy, clawed footfall. One step at a time, coming towards the stairs.

THEOPHON: Don't get so upset. If it can touch us, what'd make you think it'd wants to? All the others didn't even notice we was here.


Theophon's lantern dims slightly. He adjusts it carefully.

NIRIM: Only... only what if it ain't a ghost, Theophon. What if it's the same creature, and it's still alive... and it ain't ate nothing since five years ago...


The footsteps begin the slow, heavy stomp up the stairs, though whatever it is, we cannot see it. Nirim notices the light beginning to dim from the lantern despite Theophon frantically trying to fix it.

NIRIM: You said you refilled the lamp!


The light goes out entirely, and the stage is filled with darkness.

NIRIM: You promised me you refilled the lamp!


More footsteps and a horrible, horrible HOWL. The men SCREAM.



The curtain falls.
