A Seaplane floats its way toward a pier. The islanders
prepare to greet its passengers.
Tattoo: Boss, can you tell me something?
Mr. Roark: Of course tattoo.
Tattoo: I checked the guest list and noticed you only have one
fantasy to fulfill this week?
Mr. Roark: Yes, that is correct.
Tattoo: Business kind of slow?
Mr. Roark: No, it's business as usual, however, this particular
fantasy will require all our care, concern and
attention my dear friend.
Tattoo: what is their fantasy boss?
Mr. Roark: Do you remember that standoff that occureed twenty
or so year ago between government military forces
and an organization called 'The Centre?'
Tattoo stares blankly.
Mr. Roark: (cont..) The one that was televised and made world news?
Tattoo: Oh, yes boss! Now I remember. It was terrible. A real
Mr. Roark: Yes, indeed, it was.
A man and woman step off the plane and are greeted by the islanders.
They are each then given wreathes and a drink.
Mr. Roark: (cont...) Meet Miss Parker. Her father, Mr Parker, ran the

things far worse than a tempting of fate itself my friend!
Tattoo: And what is that boss?
Mr. Roark: From what I learned and know even now, I believe she feels
a very heavy sense of...guilt.
Tattoo: She feels responsible for what happened and the way things turned
Mr. Roark: Ones own personal intentions, regardless of outcome, ultimately
determine how things turn out in ones heart, Tattoo.
Mr. Roark and Tattoo raise their glasses to the couple.
Mr. Roarke: My dear guests, I am Mr. Roarke your host. Welcome to Fantasy
Mr. Roarke looks intently at the guests.
Mr. Roark: (cont..) Indeed.
