Act 5: Scene 1
"Hi, Regan" said Edmund.
"Hello, Edmund" said Regan.
"Why are you in mourning?" Edmund asks. Regan was wearing a long black dress.
"My husband Cornwall died" Regan replied.
"I'm sorry to hear that" Edmund said.
There is a brief silence.
"Edmund, I've been meaning to talk to you," said Regan, breaking the silence. "I've been thinking about you and in a very unusual way, I'm in love with you."
"So have I" replied Edmund. "You're the one for me Regan."
Edmund and Regan passionately embrace sharing a romantic kiss.
"Oh, Edmund" Regan sighs dreamily. "This really means a lot to me. I do realize that you respect me."
"Regan, why don't we get married today?" Edmund asks.
"That sounds nice, but given I'm recovering from my husband's; let's take it slow" Regan replies.
"Very well then" Edmund agrees.
"Father, you look awful. Who plucked your eyes out?" asked Edgar. He noticed that both of Gloucester's eyes were missing.
"It was that venomous wench and her two-faced husband Cornwall. They banished me to Dover" Gloucester explains.
"How horrible! Who put them up to it? Edmund?" Edgar inquires.
"No, it was that wretch Gonerill" Gloucester replied.
"Father, there's something I need to tell you" said Edgar.
"What is it?" Gloucester asks.
"Edmund is behind all this. He's in cahoots with Gonerill, Regan, and Cornwall. It was him who told Gonerill to tell Cornwall and Regan to snatch your eyeballs out." Edgar said indignantly.
Gloucester gasps and exclaims, "You're right! What a fool I was! Mistreating you and rewarding Edmund with wealth, land, and power and then being led to this misery and woe!"
Gloucester continues "Rest assured, Cordelia and her French army are here so we'll pay Edmund back with revenge and teach his villainous cohorts a lesson." Gloucester and Edgar hug each other.
Cordelia summons one of her soldiers and informs him:
"Tell the Britain army that we are ready for battle."
"Yes, your Majesty" said the soldier.
Cordelia turns to Kent and Lear.
"Are you ready for this?" she asks.
"Yes," said Kent.
"This means war!" Lear yelled excitedly.
"The French army are ready now" the soldier informs Gonerill.
"Tell them we are on our way" she replied.
The soldier leaves.
Gonerill turns to Regan and Edmund.
"This is it. Our plan is set into motion," she declared.
"Exactly" Regan nodded.
Cordelia, Lear, Kent, Edgar, Gloucester, and the French army marched towards Gonerill, Regan, Edmund, and their crew.
Cordelia walks up to Gonerill and Regan.
"Hello, Gonerill and Regan" said Cordelia.
"Hello, Cordelia" said Gonerill and Regan in unison.
"Here's the deal. If my army wins, you leave. If yours win, we'll go quietly. Deal?" Cordelia proposes.
She holds out her hand to shake.
"Deal" replied Gonerill and shakes Cordelia's hand.
Regan does the same.
"Let the battles begin!" Gonerill shouted.
The sisters step away from each other. As the Britain soldiers charged toward the French soldiers, they loaded the cannons with cannon balls and fires them and the Britain soldiers get a sucker punch from the cannon balls.
"Bring in the ninjas!" shouted Regan.
Out of nowhere, the ninjas appeared all dressed in black swinging daggers. The French soldiers load the cannons and fires. However the ninjas jump high kicking the cannon balls karate-style knocking one of the soldiers out. They yell "Charge!" The soldiers and the ninjas run towards each other. The ninjas fight the soldiers by kicking and stabbing with their daggers. As for the soldiers who got kicked, they grabbed their guns and shot the ninjas one by one and they collapse dead.
Cordelia, Kent, Lear, Gloucester, and Edgar shouted "Yes!" and hugged one another while Edmund, Gonerill, and Regan stomped their feet angrily.
