Panel 1 Full shot of Lady Maud
Simon and Richard cease their horse-playing and look up.
Standing in front of them with hands on her hips, looking none-to-pleased, is LADY MAUD (17)
--a lovely young woman of extraordinary beauty with large, bright green eyes and long, radiant raven-black hair. 
An important woman of the royal court for sure, entrusted with the sacred duty of watching over her royal charge; the young Prince Richard. Which is, of course, no easy task.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: Lady Maud!


Panel 2
Both Simon and Richard get to their feet and bow to her.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD: How may the Prince of England be of service to thee? Thou art surely a Glorious Sight to behold.


Panel 3 Close-up
A thin smile comes to Lady Maudís lips. She and the young prince are very close and he knows how to read her perfectly.
LADY MAUD: My Fine Young Royal Charge!
(2nd balloon): Flattery will not rescue you this time. Ye be about as easy to keep track of as a Will-O-Wisp.
(3rd balloon): Iíve never had a more difficult...


Panel 4
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD:
Flattery?
(2nd balloon): The prince would never lie to his lovely lady.
(3rd balloon): Me thought you wished a private moment with your beau...


Panel 5 Close-up
Lady Maudís face turns pale white at being found out.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD (OFF PANEL): ...that young officer you meet at the far end of the garden.


Panel 6
Maudís face agitated because of Richardís cleverness.
YOUNG PRINCE RICHARD (OFF PANEL): The one my mother, the Queen, has forbidden the privilege of the court.


Panel 7
Maud has been outwitted.
LADY MAUD: Sigh.
(2nd balloon): Come, Richard.
