A Cougar In Heat
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Mopnday. 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 31 of THE HEISTERS, it's a clusterfuck of epic proportions when Kelsey discovers Doll has the stolen money from the robbery. She chases her to an abandoned construction site, where more than shit hits the fan ...
EXT. VENICE ALLEY - DRIVEWAY - NIGHT
Doll’s got the trunk open.
Tries to pull out one of the duffle bags,
but has a hard time with it.
I can’t run with these --
She unzips it.
Starts stuffing bundles of cash
in her jacket pockets.
Down her jeans.
In her purse.
THROUGH THE HEDGES
The MONEY --
PUSHES her way through the hedges.
Comes out the other side.
BITCH. That’s MY MONEY.
Doll turns. Looks. Sees Kelsey.
Fuck YOU, cunt --
She SLAMS the trunk shut.
Starts RUNNING AWAY. Kelsey
TAKES OFF after her.
COME BACK HERE --
FURTHER ON DOWN THE ALLEY
Ronan hears the yelling.
And he races toward Doll’s driveway.
INT. UNMARKED POLICE CAR - NIGHT
Isaacs and Nunn sip their coffee.
I think we should tell her
we’re out here.
Might get spooked
if she sees us watching her.
Yeah. Good idea. Let’s go.
They get out of the car.
Walk toward the building.
IN THE ALLEY
Doll TAKES OFF down the alley on foot.
Kelsey sees her. CHASES AFTER her.
Ronan FLIES through the bushes.
RUNS AFTER both of them.
AT THE CORNER
Doll sees a four-story
apartment building under construction.
It’s covered with a maze
of scaffolding, like catacombs.
She starts climbing up.
Follows right behind.
Starts climbing up after her.
Better watch your back, BITCH,
cause I’m RIGHT BEHIND YOU.
Sees Kelsey climbing up.
Sees a bucket lying on the next level.
GRABS it. THROWS it down --
It HITS Kelsey in the head. BANG.
She FLIES off the scaffolding.
Hits the ground, BANG.
Ronan races up to the building.
Panting. Out of breath.
Kelsey gets up. Sees him.
You goddamn fucking ASSHOLE.
SOMEBODY had to break your streak, baby.
We were DRUNK, Ronan.
It was NEW YEAR’S EVE.
We’d just done a JOB.
I wasn’t looking for a RELATIONSHIP --
Doll looks down. Listens. Motionless.
ON THE GROUND
Ronan glares at Kelsey.
You REJECTED ME. Arrogant BITCH.
I gotta admit, it was almost brilliant.
So how did you get Jackie and Doll
on the hook?
Are you KIDDING? It was EASY --
INT. BAR - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Ronan sits at the bar with Jackie Tempel.
Pours them beers from a big pitcher.
SLAPS him on the back.
I’d heard from Jackie’s boss
that he dumped his druggy girlfriend,
so I made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
You rock her world,
and there’s ten large in it for ya.
But how do I know she’ll go for me?
After a job she’s like a cougar in heat --
INT. DOLL’S APARTMENT - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Doll and Ronan sit on the couch.
Ronan finishes chopping up a
few lines of coke on the coffee table.
And then reeling in Amy Winehouse
was like shooting fish in a rehab --
Doll SNARFS up a big, fat one.
Shakes her head.
Rushing on the drugs.
Holy shit, is that UNCUT?
Just like me, baby --
(puts her hand on his knee)
So let me get this straight.
I kill the cocksucker,
and we split a MILLION BUCKS?
And I get to split YOU.
Doll smiles. Evil.
GRABS Ronan’s crotch.
Ooh. I see big boy is PACKING.
This is getting better and better --
EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY
Kelsey stares at Ronan.
Shakes her head with disgust.
Wait. Let me guess.
And you had Little Miss Controlled Substance
convinced you were gonna run off with her
and live happily ever after?
What do YOU think?
(yells up above)
You hear that, Doll-face?
Your boyfriend was gonna double-cross you.
You weren’t gonna get SQUAT.
Whattaya think about THAT?
Her face turns red.
She sees a pick-axe.
Picks it up.
Moves closer to where they’re standing.
Calls up to her.
Don’t listen to her, baby.
She’s a lying, filthy, rotten CUNT.
She thinks her shit don’t --
The axe goes WHIZZING through the air.
It HITS Ronan on the top of the head
with a sickening CRUNCH --
And he falls over, THUD.
Blood starts pouring down his head.
Kelsey LEAPS BACK.
There’s plenty more where
that came from, BITCH.
So if you know what’s good for you,
STAY AWAY FROM ME.
Kelsey goes to the scaffolding.
Starts climbing up.
Step into my parlor,
said the spider to the fly --
