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 46 of THE HEISTERS, the shit hits more than the fan when Kelsey and Doll fight to the death, high atop a building under construction ...
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?
Doll SCREAMS. 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.
Thank god. Don’t think I
could have done that again --
She looks over the side.
CLOSE ON --
Doll’s body. Lying near Ronan’s
on a pile of broken bricks.
ON THE ROOF
Kelsey starts for the stairs,
then hears --
It came from the constructions site.
All units, they’re at the construction site --
She turns. Dashes over to the opposite side.
Starts climbing down the scaffolding
at the rear of the building.
Goodbye, Dolly --
it’s so nice to have you
dead where you belong.
