HOODED MAN:

Hey... Buddy. Are we alone yet?

HOLLIS:

Shut up, I’m...

Hollis stops pacing. That was not the voice he expected to

hear coming out of that hood. What the fuck...?

HOODED MAN:

Hello?

(no response)

Alright, that sounds like a ‘yes.’

The Hooded Man (whose hands are apparently free too) peels

fired. Let’s not do this like he had you

working the chain gang.
