The fair Imogen's fate seemed doomed, indeed, as the cast and crew waited to hear a name from Aiden, when the tides of suspicion and ill will suddenly changed. Unable to hold back those who now cast her in such a murderous light, thirteenhearts knew her time on stage had come to a rather bittersweet end. One by one the stage lights fell to a hushed dim until only a single spotlight remained on the woman destined to be the Lady Capulet.
"O me! This sight of death is as a bell
That warns my old age to a sepulchre."
The noose that swung down from the catwalk, seeming to fall with clever precision, came the moment the words had left her lips, ringing out clearly to the back of the theater; a moment later, the hidden floor beneath her swept down, and Lady Capulet -- to be played by the Understudy thirteenhearts -- was no more. The Thespians could breathe a sigh of relief for they were a little more safe now going into the next act -- almost.
One Understudy had been uncovered ... but what of the others?
The spotlight faded.
