9 Souls”

DRAFT DATED JUNE 25 2013

INT. BLACKNESS.

The screen opens to blackness, the sound of music plays in the back, as the voice of Abel

recites a poem.

ABEL V/O

Out of breath Out of will

We will climb the mountain top

Our hands will bleed

Our hands will shake

But as we reach the top

We will lay eyes

On our paradise

 EXT- Neighborhood. Day

The darkness fades slowly. Kane is walking with his back turned to the camera, he turns his head around from time to time, feeling edgy, knowing everything has gone wrong.

 EXT- SAFE HOUSE. FRONT YARD. DAY

Kane sees the parked car that peeled away from the crime scene, he stares at into the car, but hears voices coming from the back. He pulls open the gated door. He see’s Nancy drawing on the floor, she glances at him from afar but pays no attention to him. Kane knocks at the door, loudly.

( Kane )

It’s me.

It takes a few seconds until one of Kane’s partners Sandra opens the front door. Kane points to her bloody hands.

KANE

* shocked *

What the fuck happened!

SANDRA

* crying *

He got tagged.

Kane pushes his way through, knowing the worst has fallen the group.

 INT. SAFE HOUSE. BEDROOM. DAY

Kane pushes the door open, to see Abel body lying on the floor, lifeless. Lucas kneels besides him, his head hung down. Praying quietly for his fellow friend. 

 EXT. PARK. PARK BENCH. DAY

The picture jumps months before Abel death, with Kane and Abel sitting side by side. They knew each other before life went wrong for them both, before they stepped into the world of crime. They were brothers in a way.

KANE

Why do this Abel, there’s nothing for you to gain from it?

ABEL

( Chuckle )

But there is, that’s the beauty of it.

Kane shakes his head.

KANE

You sure you’ve haven’t cracked.

Abel laughs once more.

KANE ( CONT’D )

Cause that’s exactly what you sound like right now.

ABEL

Believe me my friend.

Abel puts his hand on Kane shoulder, trying to get his brother in arms to follow him on this journey.

ABEL ( CONT’D )

This is the climb to the mountain top.
