DEXTER (CONT'D)

You're mine now, so do exactly as I

say.

DONOVAN:

(struggling, barely audible)

What do you want..?

And Dexter pulls the fishing line tighter, cuts into

Donovan's skin.

DEXTER:

(hard)

I want you to be quiet.

(beat)

Be good and maybe I'll let you live a

little longer. Now drive.

And Donovan pulls out of the spot.

CUT TO:

EXT. DIRT ROAD - OUTSKIRTS OF MIAMI, FL - LATER

The station wagon driving down a dirt road flanked by

swampland. It doesn't look good. We can see it in Donovan's

eyes.

DEXTER:

Turn here.

4.

Donovan turns the wheel and the car rumbles toward --

EXT. AN OLD HOUSE - OUTSKIRTS OF MIAMI, FL - SAME

The car stops in front of a ramshackle home -- clearly hasn't

been lived in for years. To the side of the house is a small

yard where we see THREE MOUNDS of dirt piled high.

The car STOPS. Donovan stares at the mounds, then snaps his

eyes shut. Dexter releases the noose.

DEXTER:

Get out.

Donovan STUMBLES out of the car, falls to the ground, starts

to whimper.

DEXTER (CONT'D)

(sharp, demanding)

You have to listen and do what I say.

You should know that. It's important.

After a beat, Donovan slowly gets up and the two of them

stare at each other. There's a weird understanding between

the two. Dexter smiles, says softly -

DEXTER (CONT'D)

In the house.

Dexter whips the fishing line back around the Donovan's neck

and they both walk up to the front door and enter -

INT. THE OLD HOUSE - OUTSKIRTS OF MIAMI, FL - SAME

Dexter KICKS the door closed, quickly flips on a flood lamp,

lights up the room, leans into Donovan's ear, whispers...

DEXTER:

Look.

Donovan is too scared, tries to turn his head away -

DONOVAN:

No.

DEXTER:

Oh yes...

DONOVAN:

(struggling)

NO! NO!

5.

But Dexter twists the noose tighter and Donovan's SCREAMS are

cut off.
