They promise eternal friendship and vow never again to allow a woman to come between them. Within moments, a woman arrives, veiled. She will stand through the night, alone on the shore, in ritual prayer. Zurga promises her a priceless pearl if she is chaste in her duty and death if she violates her purity.
