The captured Twin Brother is imprisoned. Just as things
seem hopeless, he discovers a friend in the Chief Archer's
Daughter. After sharing a tender moment, she sets him free and
then expresses her flirtatious desires through a touching
performance using the Twins' flutes.
Back inside the lair of the Archers, the Counselor's son oversees
construction of the massive Death Machine that will process the mined
ore into deadly weapons. Lifts rise at the front of the void to reveal
the captives from the Empire, now slaves housed in round hamster wheel-like
cages. The Boy is brought into the lair and thrown into one of these cages.
The Chief Archer's Daughter comes to see the Boy. She reveals the flutes
given to her by her father as a souvenir of the raid on the Empire. They
are the Twins' flutes. The Archer's Daughter gives the Boy a flute and he
plays a sweet, evocative melody for her. She is enchanted by the Boy's song
and leans toward him. The Boy sneaks a kiss. The Archer's daughter is
smitten, she has fallen in love with the Boy but she is conflicted. Their
love is forbidden and she has a duty to uphold to the Archers. After a moment
of hesitation she opens the cage and allows the Boy to escape. He leaves her
with a kiss and gives her his flute as a token of his love for her.
Love fills the Archer's Daughter's heart for the first time and she performs
a beautiful dance with the flute (an intricate baton manipulation routine).
The Counselor's son has secretly witnessed the entire scene. He collapses
to his knees in anguish; his heartbreak galvanizes his resolve to destroy the
Twins and the last remaining hope for the Empire.
