In Chapter 29 of THE HEISTERS, heister Kelsey Hazard and drug-whore Doll Montana fight to the death on the roof of a building under construction as the cops start to close in on them ...
EXT. VENICE ALLEY - DRIVEWAY - NIGHT
A cluster of COPS and FBI clog the driveway.
EVIDENCE TECHS are going over the car.
Yellow tape surrounds the perimeter.
Mart and Terrence huddle with Meg and Ren.
The money on the ground
suggests that she was in a hurry.
Yeah, but why?
Someone was chasing her?
Maybe she was trying a double-cross and got busted --
(looks at the car)
Why don’t I take the cash to the station
and log it into the evidence locker?
Makes me nervous just sitting there like that.
Never know what could happen.
Those heisters might try something --
We’ve got Nunn and Isaacs canvasing the area.
We’ll join ‘em.
Keep me posted.
I’ll come back later if you need me.
You got it.
Terrence goes the car.
Grabs the bags of money.
Carries them over to his squad car.
Puts them in the trunk. Drives off.
(to the group)
Okay. Everybody fan out and canvas the area.
I’m going to stay here
and monitor the feed from the satellite.
You think we’ll be able to find her?
Oh, yes. Spy satellite can track a mole
on Rush Limbaugh’s ass from a hundred miles.
Really. Remember that trip he took down to --
EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - ROOF - NIGHT
Kelsey hobbles up the stairs holding the steel pipe,
emerges onto the roof.
Sees Doll standing on the opposite side of the building.
Brandishing a shovel with both hands.
Stay the fuck AWAY FROM ME.
Kelsey holds the pipe like a baseball bat.
Takes a practice swing.
Starts limping toward Doll.
It’s time for act three.
The final curtain.
Have any last words?
That would imply you could THINK.
I said STAY AWAY FROM ME.
Did you really think you could get away with it?
Ripping off a PROFESSIONAL HEISTER?
Is your brain that DRUG-DAMAGED?
Doll holds the shovel to her side.
JABS the air in front of her with it.
Moves back toward the edge of the building.
Ronan said you were an arrogant BITCH,
and now I see he was RIGHT.
Kelsey moves closer to her, swinging the pipe.
Now that I see you up close,
I can’t believe he’d fuck such a filthy skank.
I can smell you from HERE.
Love the nose ring.
Great for tugging on with a LEASH.
She CHARGES at Kelsey with the shovel.
Kelsey SWINGS the pipe down on it with a CRACK,
sending it FLYING out of her hands to the ground --
Doll LEAPS into the air
and GRABS Kelsey in a bear hug.
The pipe goes FLYING
and hits the tar paper with a CLANG.
Kelsey FALLS BACKWARDS,
Doll on top of her.
They roll around on the roof.
Kelsey HEAD BUTTS her in the face.
Doll FLIES away from her.
Holds her bloody nose in her hands.
You broke my --
Kelsey stands. Raises her fists.
Oh, we’re just getting started, hot stuff.
It’s your choice.
Wanna go over the side,
or should I finish you off right here?
Doll whips her head back and forth
looking for a weapon.
Can’t find one.
She raises her fists.
Starts hopping on the balls of her feet like a boxer.
Fuck YOU. Come and get it --
Kelsey starts rolling her fists.
I was hoping you’d say that.
She gets nearer.
Doll takes a SWING.
Kelsey feints to the left,
then SMASHES her fist
into Doll’s face with a CRACK.
She FLIES back wards.
Staggers a bit.
Saw that one in RAGING BULL.
Ready for more?
CHARGES at her, fists flying.
Kelsey JUMPS to the right.
Doll goes FLYING across the roof,
TRIPS on a board.
Hits the ground.
Kelsey resumes her stance.
Doll gets up.
Blood dripping from a gash on her forehead.
I’m gonna fucking KILL YOU.
She CHARGES again.
Kelsey SPINS AROUND
and KICKS Doll in the stomach,
knocking the wind out of her.
She FLIES backwards,
feet trip on the ledge,
and she FALLS OVER THE SIDE.
We hear her SCREAM as she goes down.
Then a sickening CRUNCH.
Kelsey goes to the ledge, limping.
Don’t think I could have done that again --
She looks over the side.
CLOSE ON --
Lying near Ronan’s on a pile of broken bricks.
ON THE ROOF
Kelsey starts for the stairs, then hears --
Over there. It came from the constructions site.
All units, they’re at the construction site --
Dashes over to the opposite side.
Starts climbing down the scaffolding
at the rear of the building.
Goodbye, Dolly --
