I see you all the time at school.

Yeah well, I kinda just

want it to be me and you.

You're different, I like that.

I'm sure you tell all the girls that.

So um, how you feel about me?

We kinda need to go 'cause

I have school tomorrow.

So, what's the rush?


Um, cool.

Yo, Bridd.

Charlotte's showing

some sweet side boob.


It's all you.

Believe me, I've tried.

You know anything about transverses?

Not much.

Yeah I'm never gettin' that promotion.

Screw it, coffee time.

You really need that promotion, huh?

It doesn't matter.

You know, maybe I will try

a new line on Charlotte.

Hey, Mr. Benson.

Trent, smart trades.


You just earned your own portfolio.


I can't believe I got it.

It's like the best thing ever.

We should go to Vegas.

Let's got to Mexico, spring break, dude.

Um, I'll pay for that.

I can afford it.

I know you had something

to do with my promotion.

I don't know how cause

those trades were impossible.

You don't show anybody.

I've seen you do some

pretty amazing things

when no one's looking.

That's creepy.

Alright, you don't wanna talk about it.

You never do.

I like staying below the radar.

You're delivering mail,

that's practically underground.

Well, you start making waves

and people come looking...

See, that doesn't make any sense.

You're 35, you live with your folks.

No, for the last time

they're in Barbados, okay?

All I'm saying is I don't get it.

I'm like your best friend

and I barely know you.

Just drop it.

Bridd Cole?

Couldn't make me the last stop?

If you will sign here.

This says Joseyln Cole.

That's my mom.


She's been dead 20 years.

They really have you in

the dungeon, don't they?

So, this is where all the magic happens.

You've worked here for a while right?

I've been here like three months

and it already feels like a year.

My boss needs a letter opener

and other stuff.

Oh, what about that?

Ah, go ahead.

See me, ah.

You've got kind eyes.


I can tell.

I moved around a lot.

I hang around until I get bored

or someone chases me away.

So no connections?

I'm agile.

I can tell.

Let's talk about you.

I think you talk enough

for the both of us.

Uh uh, I have already kissed you.

What about your family?

Not much to tell.

Out of touch?

My dad took off when I was a toddler.

And my mom died a few

years later after that.


It's okay.

Here, I made this for you.



It's much easier.

Little early in

our relationship for rings.

I guess I will just put it on.

Door to door service.

That's very chivalrous.

Oh, you like it pretty.

Oh, God!

Is that our boss?

Wait a sec.

Take what you want.

Go! Go!


Who the hell is that?

I don't know!

I don't know!

Oh my God, he was so fast!

Oh, God.

That is the last time I kiss a guy

before a background check.

Who's after us?

After you.

Our boss is dead.

I better still have a job.

That's your priority?


Maybe. I don't know.

I'm freaking out!

Okay, we gotta go.


What's up?

Hey, we've been attacked!

Are you okay?

Get over here.

Come on, let's go.

Alright, alright.

Oh, my God.

No, no, no.

Time to go, let's go.

Hi, hi.

My name is Bridd Cole.

I'd like to report an emer...

Are you crazy?

What? Trent's dead!

Yeah, Officer, I know

what this looks like,

but I promise I didn't kill

my boss and my best friend.

I'll explain everything.

I'm innocent.

Fingerprints on the letter

opener totally coincidental.

Okay, wait.

And the phone call you made to Trent

just before you killed him,

just bad timing.

No wait, wait, well,

you can go to the cops
