Happy Fifth of July, crime motherfuckers! Feeling a little hungover? A little fuzzy in the head? Need something to WAKE YOU UP? How about a bare-knuckle ride to hardboiled hell ... right here, at the darkest joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In chapter 15 of THE HEISTERS, we flash back to the robbery of the rock concert at The Rose Bowl. While the money is being counted and stuffed into bags at the finance office, the drivers prepare a pair of Trojan horses for transportation ...
INT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - DAY
We hear ROCK MUSIC playing outside. But muffled inside.
Two FEMALE EMPLOYEES sit at
the money counting table in the middle of the room.
Kelsey and Ronan are now dressed as guards
and stand by the front door with guns.
IN THE STORAGE ROOM
Chick sits just inside the doorway
with a machine gun trained on the guards
and other employees, now bound and gagged.
IN THE FINANCE OFFICE
Ludo sits under the front counter
with a machine gun aimed at
the female employees at the money counting table.
A buzzer RINGS.
Kelsey goes to the door.
A uniformed GUARD (20’s) stands there,
carrying a big bag of money.
He eyes Kelsey appreciatively.
Another GUARD is behind him,
his piece at the ready.
(hands her the bag)
Well, hello there.
Haven’t seen you here before.
Let’s keep it that way, huh?
GUARD WITH GUN
She got you good.
Barking up the wrong tree, fellas.
She prefers ‘the other white meat’
So that’s the way it is, huh?
Your loss, honey --
And my gain. See ya later, fellas.
They smile and walk away.
What’s with the dyke stuff?
Blue collar male bonding.
It would have looked funny
if I didn’t crack a stupid joke.
You know guys --
Ronan brings the cash box over
to the girls at the counting table.
One girl starts stacking up the cash.
Under the table are the duffle bags,
which the other girl start filling.
It was going like clockwork.
The concert was going full-steam ahead,
and we had collected at least half the gate.
(looks at her watch)
Now it was time for Garza and Brown
to start getting their vehicles in position.
INT. WAREHOUSE - DAY
An ambulance is parked near the entrance
with the back doors open.
Two boards rest against the back,
serving as a ramp.
Garza was taking care of getting
the Triumph into the ambulance --
Kasper walks over to a
tiny vintage Triumph Spider right behind it.
Gets in. Starts it up.
Then slowly drives it into the ambulance.
He crawls out of the car,
then sits up front.
ON THE OTHER END OF THE WAREHOUSE
A big panel truck sits. It also has its back doors open.
And also has boards set up like a ramp at the end.
And Jones was getting the Benz inside the truck.
Jefty sits in a late-model
Mercedes sedan parked behind it.
REVS the engine.
Then slowly drives the car inside the truck.
So we had a pair of Trojan horses,
but in reverse.
We had two escape vehicles,
and then two others to hide them in.
Pretty brilliant, if you ask me --
All in a day’s skirt.
