Teach me the chant and I will take
your place on the gallows.
EXT. CHURCH - LATER - DAY
A GROUP of RELIGIOUS-LOOKING MEN walk toward the church.
INT. STONE ROOM - DAY
Vieira has finished teaching the chant.
After you recite the chant you must
concentrate of the form you wish to
take. The stonger you are the longer
you can hold the illusion.
In the b.g. we HEAR the SOUND of FOOTSTEPS coming up the
stairs. Vieira looks at the Hooded Man.
They come. Quickly, take my place.
The Men enter. One of them looks at the Hooded Man.
What are you doing here?
The Hooded Man stares at him -- a hard, unnerving stare -- then
slowly, his thin lips from a cruel grin.
Just saying goodbye to an old friend.
Vieira stares at the Hooded Man angrily.
We had a bargain. You promised.
The Hooded Man walks from the room.
EXT. CHURCH - DAY
The Hooded Man walks out. The TWO HORSEMEN ride up. The
Hooded Man climbs on his horse. He takes a DEEP BREATH as he
looks at a RANGE OF MOUNTAINS in the distance.
EXT. VALLEY - DAY
The SOUND of SWORDS CROSSING fill the air. Two MEN, one YOUNG,
the other OLD fight across the SNOW-SWEPT GROUND. In. the b.g.
a large, stone building is built at the base of a mountain
The Young Man fights furiously, his only weapon strength, but
he is clearly inexperienced. The OLD MAN is agile, and easily
moves out of the way of each blow. The Young Man swings
wildly, he loses his balance. The Old Man strikes his SWORD
away, then pushes him to the ground. The Young Man looks up as
the older man raises his SWORD above his head. Their eyes
lock. The Old Man smiles and slowly lowers the sword to the
Young Man's neck.
