Sit down.

I need to get back.

Back where?

I'm supposed to go to Back Bay.

I tell you what.

You sit down, have some food...

...I'll take you to Back Bay myself.

How's that?

Whoa, slow down.

When's the last time you ate?

So, what's in Back Bay?

Your mother.

- What, you got family or friends there?

- What's with all the questions, lady?

You a cop?

Not exactly.

I'm just trying to help. That's all.

- Yeah? I don't need your help.

- Hmm.

See, I think you do, especially knowing

what's in that backpack of yours.

Let me guess:
two bricks of brown...

...and a semiautomatic handgun?


The man who gave you that bag,

what's his name?

- He'll kill me for talking to you.

- He won't lay a finger on you.

He'll kill us both.

You know what happens...

...if you get busted with that bag?


- The cops will turn you into an informant.

- Yeah?

- Well, I ain't no snitch, so...

- Yeah, well, that doesn't matter.

All that matters is what people think.

And nobody likes talking to kids

who talks to cops. Right?

Especially where we come from.

Look, I'm on your side.

Come on, let's clean up that cut.

You got blood all over your shirt.

Stay right here.

Here you go.

Who did that to you?


- How you know Uncle?

- Don't worry about that.

Did he do that to you?

Where you going?

To teach somebody some manners.

Shit. I'm coming with you.



- What are you about to do?

- You just stay in the car.

Keep the doors locked. Okay?

Put your hood on.

What can I do for you?

It's all there. He didn't touch a thing.

A bit out of the way for you, isn't it?

I thought I'd, uh, return it.

- We don't want hard feelings.

- No hard feelings?

- Yeah.

- Oh.

You think because you're

Benny goddamn Spencer's girl... get to walk in here and shoot
