No One Fucks With Me On Christmas
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Hump Day. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where your most violent fantasies become sins of the flesh, right here, where the hardboiled action is non-stop, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 27 of LITTLE GIRL BLUE, just as Carrie and Bernie -- and then Seth and Blue -- escape from the tunnels, they discover that white slave trafficker Tolly Chill and his goons have captured Carrie's mother, Margo, who's now unconscious in her wheelchair ...
INT. NORTH TUNNEL - NIGHT
Layla pushes Margo in the wheelchair.
Eva follows, rifle on her shoulder. Marching.
The agency never told me about this.
Always something going on with this family.
You have anyone expecting you home tonight?
Just my cat, Pepe.
MALE VOICE (O.C.)
Stop right where you are,
or I’ll fucking SHOOT.
The women turn, look.
Tolly walks toward them, gun in hand.
Drop the rifle, Blondie,
and put ‘em where I can see ‘em.
Eva drops the gun.
It hits the floor, CLACK. Puts ‘em up.
(points at Layla)
You too, Chiquita Banana.
What’s up with the old broad?
EXT. BACK YARD - AT THAT MOMENT
A manhole cover opens up in the ground.
Out comes Seth, then Blue.
They look around,
shivering in the cold snow.
He takes off his hoodie.
Puts it on her.
This should warm you up.
The pool house is over there.
He grabs her hand,
and they DASH off in the snow.
INT - POOL HOUSE - AT THAT MOMENT
A door opens up in the floor.
It’s SHOVED to the side.
Hits the floor with a THUD.
Carrie, then Bernie come up the stairs.
Stop. Look around.
This is the pool house.
How do you know?
I was here earlier tonight.
God, that seems like a year ago --
Carrie’s walkie talkie CRACKLES to life.
Detective Carrie Love --
That you, Chill?
Better get your ass back here.
Got some old broad in a wheelchair with me.
Hate to see anything bad happen to her.
Don’t TOUCH HER.
(whispers to Bernie)
He’s got my mother.
Got a couple of other ladies, too.
But no Little Girl Blue. She with you?
She’s GONE, asshole.
You’re too late.
She went down the other tunnel.
Aha. Well, my associates
will catch up with her soon.
Now get your ass back to the basement,
if you know what’s good for you.
And the old lady.
Don’t you DARE touch a hair on her HEAD.
I’m on my way.
(clicks it off, to Bernie)_
You go find Blue and Seth.
I should come with you.
BERNIE. That YOUNG GIRL and
MY BROTHER are out there.
You gotta find them,
make sure they’re okay.
(hands him the walkie)
Here, take this.
I’ll get that asshole’s
walkie after I kill him.
You’re awfully confident.
He’s got my MOTHER.
And NO ONE fucks with me on CHRISTMAS.
INT. BASEMENT - SECRET ROOM - AT THAT MOMENT
Tolly faces Margo, Eva and Layla.
Points his gun at them.
Watches Margo sleeping peacefully.
The IV drip.
What’s wrong with the old broad?
Carrie’s mother had a stroke.
Please don’t hurt her.
That’s her MOTHER?
I’ve died and gone to HEAVEN.
Best hostage I ever had.
PUSH IN ON Margo.
One eye opens a tiny bit. Then closes.
EXT. POOL HOUSE - AT THAT MOMENT
It’s stopped snowing. All is quiet.
Bernie races toward the pool house.
Seth and Blue come outside. See him.
They run toward each other.
And my mom and Eva?
They’ve been captured.
But Carrie’s on her way to save them.
Don’t worry, they’ll be okay.
You don’t know Carrie.
If you saw the look on her face --
(motions to the pool house)
C’mon, let’s go inside.
I have a feeling we’re
about to expect company.
GERO AND MAD DOG
Appear at the end of the property.
Stay where you are or we’ll SHOOT.
BERNIE, SETH AND BLUE
Hear him. Look.
And they DASH into the pool house.
