NATALYA takes off her engagement ring, hands it to MICHELENE. Who gawps at it.
EBBA

Natalya!...
NATALYA

Sell it...get comparative price, maybe auction. Do it well.
MICHELENE

I can't take this.
NATALYA

When The Princess Natalya offers you gift, be gracious to accept.
She waves MICHELENE away imperiously. MICHELENE totters over to BRIAN and CAROLLE, shows them the ring. They look across in amazement.
EBBA

You - are mad. Why?

NATALYA shrugs.
NATALYA

I am sorry for this woman.
EBBA

Why?!
NATALYA

She is provincial.
EBBA

What are you going to say to Lamarr?
NATALYA

I lost the ring. Buy me another.
MUSIC up a touch. More noise from backstage.
EBBA

I wonder if he'll believe you.


NATALYA

Doesn't matter. Tomorrow I go home.
EBBA

What?
NATALYA

I said, tomorrow I go home. Shura is safe...you brought my brother here. (She kisses EBBA.) Better not to sleep with him, he is careless boy.
EBBA

He's adorable. Why are you going back?
NATALYA

I must.
EBBA

Why?
NATALYA

Because nothing is right here. Even the smells is wrong. I need her.
EBBA

Your mother?
NATALYA

Mother Russia.
EBBA

Is he coming with you? Lamarr?
NATALYA

Nah, nah, nah. I leave early, you will drive me to the airport...here...keys of car. For you.
They have to speak up as the music begins to surge.
EBBA

I don't want your car.
NATALYA

Sell it! Buy good clothes - some shoes -
EBBA

I shall do nothing of the sort, I shall give the car back to Lamarr. What shall I say to him?
Music up.
NATALYA

What?
EBBA

What do you want me to tell Lamarr?
NATALYA

Tell him...
(Music up.)
Tell him...Dosvedanya!

Music. Lights. The Fashion Show - MODELS showing outré clothes. At the end the BRIDE sashays on to the catwalk. It is BA.
EBBA and NATALYA watch, backs to us, and applaud. JACK enters, stands between them, a hand on each bum. BA moves up and down the catwalk, dancing ecstatically.
