Little Miss Controlled Substance
Hey there, crime kids. Happy Monday. 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 41 of THE HEISTERS, Kelsey discovers that Ronan set her up, and that he got Doll to steal the money and kill her boy toy Jackie, who was also in on the scam ... then confronts both of them, with deadly results ...
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.
Looks down. 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.
Easy money. You rock her world,
and there’s ten large in it for ya.
But how do I know she’ll go for me?
Trust 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.
Then another. Shakes her head.
Rushing on the drugs. Eyes BLAZING.
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. Reaches over.
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
You weren’t gonna get SQUAT.
Whattaya think about THAT?
Eyes bulge. 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 --
