Pages forty-nine, fifty, fifty-one, fifty-two and fifty-three.

I’ve returned home after a three-month hiatus and it was more difficult acclimating than I thought it would be. I got used to my routine in Flint and trying to come up with one here may be a challenge without the consistent schedule I had gotten used to. Even though I knew where the following scene was going, I still stared at a blank page for at least an hour today before the five pages came out. Hopefully, I can find a routine and get as comfortable at home as I was in Flint.

(pages 49, 50, 51, 52 & 53)
INT. CAR – CONTINUOUS

Martin is driving and Dino is in the passenger street.

Martin’s phone starts ringing. Martin answers it.

MARTIN
Hello?

JIMMY (O.S.)
Martin, it’s Jimmy.

MARTIN
Yeah, Jimmy?

JIMMY (O.S.)
I’ve got Sam here and he’s telling me that Dino’s case was his case.

MARTIN
Is that so?

JIMMY (O.S)
It appears so. I want to know how he knows my business. And no bullshit stories this time.

MARTIN
Yes, sir.

Martin hangs up.

DINO
Any problems?

MARTIN
Nope. Turn here.

INT. RESTAURANT – CONTINUOUS

Perry, Jimmy and Sam are sitting at the booth.

JIMMY
We still have a problem.

SAM
What problem?

JIMMY
You still owe me three hundred grand.

SAM
What the fuck are you talking about? I’m telling you this IS my money.

JIMMY
I’m getting fucked either way and I don’t like getting fucked. I do the fucking. Go home. I’ll we’ll call you when Martin is done and we’ll get this figured out. All I know is that between the two of you, I have five hundred and fifty thousand coming to me and I don’t give a fuck how it gets here, but it better fucking be here.

EXT. STORAGE UNITS – DAY

Martin and Dino’s vehicle pull into a Storage Unit business and stop at a unit.

INT. CAR – CONTINUOUS

DINO
What the fuck? You’ve got her in a fucking garage?

MARTIN
I’m not going to take her home with me.

DINO
What about a hotel?

MARTIN
Too expensive.

Martin exits the vehicle. Dino follows.

EXT. STORAGE UNITS – CONTINUOUS

Martin walks over to the unit and unlocks the padlock. He thrusts the unit open.

INT. STORAGE UNIT – CONTINUOUS

Inside the unit is a sofa and a chair with newspapers and takeout boxes littering the ground.

Sherry is gagged on the sofa with her feet bound behind her back to her hands. She’s laying on her stomach. Her eyes get wide when she sees Dino.

Dino rushes over and starts kissing Sherry.

DINO
Oh, Sherry, baby, I’m so sorry. I’m so so sorry. What have they done to you? Untie her you prick!

MARTIN
Well, you see, that’s going to be a problem.

Martin is in the storage unit as he slams the door down shutting them all inside.

DINO
What the fuck are you doing, asshole?

Martin takes out his gun from his chest holster and starts screwing in a suppressor.

MARTIN
Sorry, Dino. Bosses orders.

DINO
Nooooooo!

Dino jumps up to attack Martin, but Martin puts a bullet into his knee.

Dino topples over.

DINO
AAAAAAAAAHHH! You motherfucker! I’m going to kill you, you motherfucker!

Martin puts his gun away. He picks Dino up and puts him into the chair.

DINO
Why the fuck are you doing this? I fucking paid, I fucking paid.

Dino is starting to cry.

MARTIN
Put your hands behind your back.

Dino is holding his wounded knee.

DINO
Fuck you!

Martin takes out his gun and places it on Sherry’s temple.

DINO
Okay, okay, okay.

Dino places his hands behind his back.

Martin puts his gun away. He removes his tie and ties Dino’s hands with it.

Martin takes out a switch-blade and starts cutting up Dino’s shirt. He uses the pieces to tie Dino’s feet to the chair’s legs.

Martin stands up straight and puts his knife away.

MARTIN
Where did you get the money?

DINO
I told you, I won the lottery.

MARTIN
Look, Dino, I know you don’t know how to tell the truth with all these women you’re juggling and the fucking different lives you’re living, but this time it’s very important you tell the truth. Jimmy’s taken the governor off me and I can be very mean without my governor on.

DINO
Please, Martin, you have to believe me, I actually hit the fucking lottery.

MARTIN
Jesus Christ. Well, I can see we’re going to be here all day. I’m going to get some pizza. What do you like on yours?

DINO
How else could I have come up with the money?

MARTIN
Oh, there are lots of ways to come up with money. Theft is usually the easiest way.

DINO
I didn’t steal it. I swear to God I didn’t steal it.

MARTIN
You believe in God, Dino?

DINO
Yeah, yeah, I believe in God.

MARTIN
You’re out cheating on your wife, stealing money, dealing drugs and God knows what else you do, and you believe in God. You oughta be ashamed of yourself.

DINO
You’re a fucking murderer!

MARTIN
I don’t believe in God. I can do whatever I want. And I usually do.

DINO
Then you’re going to hell.

Martin starts laughing.

MARTIN
Very funny. Well, I’m going to get the pizza. I already know what she likes on hers. What do you want on yours?

DINO
I’m not hungry.

MARTIN
Suit yourself.

Martin takes out a handkerchief and shoves it into Dino’s mouth.

Martin opens the door and closes it behind him.
