Chapter Summary Edit
With the battle raging between the mercenaries and the Osprian soldiers, Monza fights her way outside. In the distance, she sees Faithful Carpi turn his horse, and flee. Snatching up a spear, she leaps onto a riderless horse in pursuit. Thundering through the unplanted fields, Monza on the faster horse quickly closes the gap on Carpi. When she's in range, she rams her spear into his horses rump, sending Faithful tumbles from his charger near a watermill. As he stumbles to his feet, Monza kicks him in the head into the water.
Monza dismounts and closes on him, as he struggles in the water with his armour. She taunts him for betraying her, but Carpi spits back that he’s faithful, he was faithful to Nicomo Cosca before she betrayed him. However, Duke Orso came to him, echoing the words that had convinced Monza to betray Cosca, and gave him no choice. As Monza stands dumbfounded, Faithful flounders towards the watermill, and his cape get caught in the waterwheel. Monza rushes to him as the wheel drags him under the water, but she's too late to save him from drowning.
