2.  Rude awakening

Maciste stood shocked.  Taken aback.  Hard what to make of this.  He’d rushed back because his father had mysteriously died.  But his ship had been welcomed by a gang of foreign troops.  Taken prisoner. 

And now dragged like some lamb to the slaughter  ..  near-naked through the streets of his own city.  And he was made to face his own people  ..  massed together to watch his shame.  Standing on the temple steps where rightly they should have been crowning him.  Hands-tied.  Some common criminal.  Hauled before his own people.

Once their popular warrior-prince.  Once a general enthusiastically followed by his people’s troops.  They looked up at him  ..  in silence.  Shamed before them.  For what crime?  What did they think he had done?
