BRIAN:

Of course! Nobody would have heard

her cries over the noise of the

machines.

INT. 70'S CHEVY - NIGHT

A male hand wipes the steamy condensation clear of his car's

front window. The windshield wipers swipe incessantly at the

constant sheet of rain beyond.

DRIVER:

Damn! This defroster never works...

The driver fidgets blindly with the various levers and knobs.

He finally manages to get the defroster and heater to work.

The girl leans forward into the stream of warm air.

PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL

...Mmm... feels good.

She closes her eyes, lets it blow across her face. He watches

her. His eyes linger on her body.

DRIVER:

Have a problem with your car?

She pulls her wet hair off her bruised face and gives him a

nervous smile.

PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL

No.

(beat)

My problem's with men.

He throws a curious look at her, then back to the highway.

INT. ROOFLESS OLD WAREHOUSE - NIGHT

Brian's flashlight moves around the room.

BRIAN:

This is where she murdered her first

victim. They found his body over in

the corner, shot through the head.

The flashlight continues to search through the darkness.

BRIAN:

They found her second victim over

there.

Another flash!!!!!

INT. 70'S CHEVY

Very close on the girl's yellow purse... as the metal zipper

is pulled open. The driver notices her opening the purse.

PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL

Okay if I smoke?

DRIVER:

(unconvincingly)

...sure.

The driver watches as she reaches into the purse... out a

soggy pack of matches. She looks at them... I look to the

driver.

PRETTY TEENAGE GIRL

My matches are all wet. You got a

lighter?

DRIVER:

(scans the dashboard)

Yeah. It's here somewhere. It's my

wife's car. Ah... there it is.

He pushes the cigarette lighter in to heat. Out of the corner

of his eye, he sees the girl's hand slip back in her purse.

And stay there. She stares at the car lighter and... waits.

The driver glances at her, then back to the lighter.
