Peter Pan has just said goodbye to Wendy, the person in his life who he understands the least but

Monologue Text

Start: (Stirring.) Who is that? (Tink has to tell her tale, in one long ungrammatical sentence.) The redskins were defeated? Wendy and the boys captured by the pirates! I'll rescue her, I'll rescue her! (He leaps first at his dagger, and then at his grindstone, to sharpen it. Tink alights near the shell, and rings out a warning cry.) Oh, that is just my medicine. Poisoned? Who could have poisoned it?

[... ... ...]

End: (He rises and throws out his arms he knows not to whom, perhaps to the boys and girls of whom he is not one.) Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe! If you believe, clap your hands! (Many clap, some don't, a few hiss. Then perhaps there is a rush of Nanas to the nurseries to see what on earth is happening. But Tink is saved.) Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! And now to rescue Wendy!
