Marius: He indicated romantic interest.
(Alucanth and Mirabelle are both shocked at Marius' bold admission.)
Malacoda: And he considered Brutus a rival for her affection?
Malacoda: Thank you; no further questions. As the witness has attested, Alucanth had motive and means to kill Brutus. He flew into a rage as a result of their love triangle and slew him. The prosecution rests.
Bald Boy: Very well. Let the defense present its rebuttal.
Alucanth: At least we can explain most of the suspicious circumstances by telling them what happened at the library.
