Princess Mar Jari of Mandel : "Being a princess is harder than I thought!"
Unending BE - episode 149338
"He must face me in combat."
Marjorie was shocked! There was no way that that poor guard could survive a one-on-one combat with this juggernaut of destruction! This man looked like he could eat his weight in wildcats for brakefast! He'd slaughter the poor man!
Wait father! Isn't their some other way? Couldn't he just...well...may I speak with him before you decide?"
Her father stroked his chin thoughtfully for a moment before saying "Very well, daughter. I shall let you speak with this man. If afterwards you decide you wish to take him as your mate, then he may live. If not...then I shall kill him. I do not agree with you in this action, though. This man is a mere nothing. A simple Padwar (Burke note: a martian Lieutenant) of an impovershed, though noble family. There are dozens of princess, even Jeds, who would give half a kingdom for you. If you take this man, you will be throwing away your future."
Marjorie started "Take this man? I...I dont want to marry him! I just want to save his life!"
The mighty Jed of the city of Mandel turned and strode away, saying "Those are your only options, daughter. Either you marry him...or he faces me and dies!"

- Marjorie speaks to the padwar. "I am sorry my princess. I ment no disrespect, but I have loved you from afar for years. When you were kidnapped I thought that I should die of grief. Then when you returned, I blessed all the gods that I was the first to set eyes on you beauty! I know that I must die, oh radiant princess, but better to die with the words 'My Princess' on my lips than to live for a thousand years in the same city and never call you mine! Just tell me that you will remember me, Mar Jari. Tell me that when you are old and grey you will not have thought unkindly of the simple padwar who dared to dream of loving you!" Marjore stood agape at the man's touching speach and honest face. He was handsom and sweet, and would be a loveing and loyal mate. She was reminded of the words Dave had used to ask her out. "Hey! Wanna see a movie sometime?"
- Marjorie speaks to the padwar. "Oh forgive meprincess Mar jari! I was a fool to speak such to you! Please, I beg of you, tell your father to spare my life and I shall be your slave!"
- *Marjorie speaks to the padwar "Hello, Marjorie." he says in a light and familliar tone. "Dont you mean Princess Mar Jari?" The padwar laughed and said " Your Marjorie Mandelberg from Jasoom, or as you call it : Earth!"
- *Marjorie speaks to the padwar "Oh, my princess! I knew we couldn't keep out love a secret for long! What a fool I was to speak out as boldly as I did! But I had thought that you were lost to me forever and seeing you caused me to speak those tender words aloud that I have so long only crooned in your lovely ears. What happened? I thought that we were to sneak out together and flee to Phundahl, where the Master Mind, Ras Thavas, would switch our bodies for two others? Then, we could live as man and wife without your father dominating you! What happend? Where did you go?"
