Happy Tuesday, crime slicksters. It's time once again to take a trip to the dark side, where the girls are hot, the drinks are cold, and the hardboiled-pulp-noir action is non-stop, right here, at the coolest crime joint in cyberspace ... at That Killing Feeling.
In Chapter 36 of THE HEISTERS, Kelsey arrives at Doll Montana's apartment, ready to confront the bitch that murdered her boy toy and stole the loot from the stadium robbery. We then flashback to the heist, where the gang makes their escape the cash ...
EXT. VENICE BEACH - APARTMENT BUILDING - NIGHT
We see Doll Montana’s apartment building.
Light from a single street lamp
makes it glow in the thick fog that’s rolled in.
Kelsey’s car drives by.
Parks in the alley. She gets out.
Starts walking toward the building.
EXT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - PARKING LOT - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
The ambulance pulls up next the building and stops.
INT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - NIGHT - FLASHBACK
Chick and Ronan finish tying up
the girl who counted the money.
Chick then leads her in the back
to join the others.
Kelsey ties a rope to the
handles of the duffle bags.
Drags them over to the window.
Then ties the other end
to the leg of a desk.
Ronan helps her carry them
over to the window.
EXT. STADIUM FINANCE OFFICE - PARKING LOT - FLASHBACK
The bags come out the window,
then down the side of the building
to where Kasper is waiting for them.
Kasper takes the cases and puts them
in the trunk of the Triumph Spider
nestled inside the ambulance.
Then, one by one, Kelsey, Ronan, then Chick,
and finally Ludo come down the rope
and walk up to the vehicle.
Ludo, still in his guard uniform,
gets in the passenger side next to Kasper.
Ronan and Kelsey squeeze behind
the back of the seat and the Triumph,
and Chick gets into the car.
Kasper starts up the ambulance,
HITS THE SIREN and starts driving it
toward the west gate.
Now that we were in the stadium,
we didn’t have to leave
the same way we came in.
We could exit through the
west gate near the backstage area,
which had been closed to
vehicles during the concert,
but was now open so the bands could leave.
The ambulance ROCKETS
toward the gate, then slows.
A long, black limousine
starts to go through. Then stops.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kasper HITS the brakes.
POUNDS on the steering wheel.
What the FUCK. MOVE it --
They can’t hear the siren because of the music --
What are we gonna DO?
THE LIMO’S BACK DOOR
Opens. A tall, thin ROCK MUSICIAN (20’s),
dressed like an Edwardian dandy FLIES OUT.
Projectile VOMITS a spew of brown slime.
Weaves a little. Shakes his head.
A BANDMATE gets out. Walks over.
Checks to see if he’s okay.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kelsey looks at Kasper.
Gimme the mike to the PA.
Kasper grabs it. Offers it to her.
She leans over the seat.
SNATCHES IT from his hand.
CLICKS it on.
NEAR THE GATE
Bandmate tries to pull Edwardian
back in the limo, but the rocker
still looks shaky.
Hey, DANDY WARHOL.
Get the FUCK back in the vehicle and MOVE IT.
We’ve got an EMERGENCY here. A man is DYING --
They WHIP their heads in her direction.
Freak out. SCRAMBLE back in. SLAM the door.
The limo TAKES OFF like a rocket.
IN THE AMBULANCE
Kasper puts the car into gear.
Starts following the limo.
Good work, boss.
PUSH IN ON Kelsey’s face. Pissed off.
It’s only rock and roll, but I steal it.
