92. INT. JESSICA'S CHAMBER - ARRAKEEN PALACE - DAY
Slowly Mapes reaches into her dress and brings out a sheathed knife. She unsheathes it. MAPES Do you know this my lady? JESSICA (inner voice) It could only be one thing.... (out loud) It's a crysknife. MAPES Say it not lightly... (very slowly) Do you know its meaning? JESSICA (inner voice) Here is why this Fremen has taken service with me, to ask that one question. Delay is as dangerous as the wrong answer. Shadout is Chakobsa... knife, in Chakobsa is... maker of death. (out loud) It's a maker...
Mapes SCREAMS with elation and grief. JESSICA (CONT'D) (inner voice) Maker?... Maker... Maker is the key word... That was close... (out loud) Did you think that I, knowing the mysteries of the Great Mother, would not know the maker? MAPES My lady, when one has lived with prophecy for so long, the moment of revelation is a shock.
Mapes sheathes the blade... slowly JESSICA (inner voice) There's more here... yes! (out loud) Mapes, you've sheathed that blade unblooded.
With a GASP Mapes drops the knife into Jessica's hands and opens her blouse. MAPES Take the water of my life!
Jessica withdraws the knife from the sheath and, with the blade, scratches a line just above Mapes' right breast. MAPES (CONT'D) You are ours.... You are the one.
Jessica's eyes stare ahead. She knows these words ring with truth.
