Jesse is distracted by the slow song that’s started. Crazy. That’s what they call me. Helena eyes Jesse carefully as he stands and holds out his hand. “May I?” He leads her onto the dance floor. Walk along the razor’s edge into black and back again. Jesse and Helena slow dance, eyes locked on each other, and slowly embrace. Crazy. That’s what they tell me. No one’s heard a word I’ve said. They’ve got me hanging by a thread. Helena is wide-eyed with heretofore unknown happiness. There’s nothing I can say to change the past. Tell me what is life without a chance? Jesse lifts his head to look at Helena. Crazy. You think you can save me? They lean in slowly. You can’t even save yourself. It’s you I want and not your help. Crazy. Jesse and Helena kiss. It quickly spirals out of control. He backs her up against the pool table.

The highland army was completely exposed, and they then charged into the teeth of musket fire, cannons, mortars… with nothing more than their broadswords, for the most part. It was very, very quick and very bloody. The whole thing took less than an hour. How many were killed? Jacobites lost something in the region of 2000 men.
But the interesting thing is that in the years following Culloden, the estates of the Clan Chieftains were plundered, sold. The government banned the wearing of the tartan. They banned the carrying of swords, even the Gaelic language. In effect, Culloden marked the end of the clans. The end of the highlander way of life.
“Even amongst the vast and beautiful landscape I felt trapped as if I were back in the stone walls of Castle Leoch. Would I have to reconcile myself to live the rest of my life amongst strangers two hundred years in the past?”
