Eurydice has reconnected with her dead Father in the Underworld. After being dipped into the River

Monologue Text

Start: Orpheus never liked words. He had his music. He would get a funny look on his face and I would say what are you thinking about and he would always be thinking about music.

[... ...]

End: It only means one thing.

(She looks at her father, embarrassed for revealing too much.)

Or maybe two or three things. But only one thing at a time.
