ACT V. SCENE 6. 


Another part of the plain

Enter AJAX

 AJAX.

Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy head.

Enter DIOMEDES

 DIOMEDES.

Troilus, I say! Where's Troilus?

 AJAX.

What wouldst thou?

 DIOMEDES.

I would correct him.

 AJAX.

Were I the general, thou shouldst have my office
Ere that correction. Troilus, I say! What, Troilus!

Enter TROILUS

 TROILUS.

O traitor Diomed! Turn thy false face, thou traitor,
And pay thy life thou owest me for my horse.

 DIOMEDES.

Ha! art thou there?

 AJAX.

I'll fight with him alone. Stand, Diomed.

 DIOMEDES.

He is my prize. I will not look upon.

 TROILUS.

Come, both, you cogging Greeks; have at you

Exeunt fighting

Enter HECTOR

 HECTOR.

Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest brother!

Enter ACHILLES

 ACHILLES.

Now do I see thee, ha! Have at thee, Hector!

 HECTOR.

Pause, if thou wilt.

 ACHILLES.

I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Troyan.
Be happy that my arms are out of use;
My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
Till when, go seek thy fortune

Exit

 HECTOR.

Fare thee well.
I would have been much more a fresher man,
Had I expected thee.

Re-enter TROILUS

 

How now, my brother!

 TROILUS.

Ajax hath ta'en Aeneas. Shall it be?
No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
He shall not carry him; I'll be ta'en too,
Or bring him off. Fate, hear me what I say:
I reck not though thou end my life to-day

Exit

Enter one in armour

 HECTOR.

Stand, stand, thou Greek; thou art a goodly mark.
No? wilt thou not? I like thy armour well;
I'll frush it and unlock the rivets all
But I'll be master of it. Wilt thou not, beast, abide?
Why then, fly on; I'll hunt thee for thy hide

Exeunt
