Happy Thursday, cluster-fucks! Are you looking for some ACTION? Some balls-out VIOLENCE? Hardboiled KICKS? Then you've come to the right place, where the chicks are hot, the drinks are cold, and the crime is non-stop, right here ... at That Killing Feeling.
In today's chapter from NOWHERE GIRLS, Homeland Security agents April Street and Cherry Nation are deep below Mann's Chinese Theater, on the hunt for black ops spook Honey Almond's underground lair ... when suddenly, to their shock and horror, they fall right into her evil clutches ...
INT. MANN’S CHINESE THEATER - BASEMENT - NIGHT
Cherry and April walk down a dimly lit corridor.
April holds a hand-held device at the wall as they go.
How does it work?
It registers electrical activity.
(looks at it)
Houston, we have CONTACT.
They get to a door. Look in the window.
Electrical room --
(holds it up)
Check it out. See?
But what if they know about this kind of device.
Wouldn’t the electrical room
be the perfect place to hide the door?
That’s fucking brilliant.
Takes one to know one.
April smiles, pushes the door open.
They walk into --
INT. ELECTRICAL ROOM - CONTINUOUS
Dark. Dank. Rows of circuit breakers and switches.
April shines a flashlight along the walls as they walk through.
They’re not going to make this easy, are they.
I don’t see any doors --
April flashes her light on a large metal cabinet.
Hello, Dr. Caligari.
Never mind. Check it out. On the side.
KEY CARD STRIP.
(pulls key card out of her pocket, smiles)
'Don’t worry. We’ll leave the light on.'
Cherry pulls out her SIG-Sauer Mosquito.
April takes out her Glock.
They look at each other. Nod.
She SWIPES the card in the slot.
The cabinet door rises up into the ceiling, THWIP.
Revealing a set of stairs going down to another level.
They start walking down the steps --
But they suddenly FLIP UP,
and the incline becomes a steel chute,
and the girls go FLYING DOWN to the bottom.
They HIT the floor with a THUD.
Yeah, I --
A trap door OPENS UP --
and they FALL down into the hole.
INT. INTERROGATION ROOM - CONTINUOUS
Steel-walled. Futuristic. Soft glowing light.
The girls fall into a plexiglass cube
in the middle of the room with a SLAP.
Groan. In pain.
Standing nearby is Honey Almond.
And four ARMED GUARDS.
One on each side.
The girls stand up,
brush themselves off.
So glad you dropped in.
