EXT. DOWNTOWN DETROIT – AFTERNOON

Sam is sitting at a park bench, still wearing the dirt stained suit, eating his dinner of coney dog, french fries and a coke.

The hustle and bustle of the city is all around him. Detroit is hoping today and Sam is sitting still enjoying his dinner.

Across from him is the Woman, just staring at him. Blood starts to seep through her hospital gown between her breasts. Slowly at first, then a lot. Suddenly her whole front is drenched in blood. Sam ignores her.

INT. PARTY STORE – NIGHT

It’s a Detroit ghetto party store complete with bullet-proof partition separating the ARAB CASHIER from the customers.

Dino is looking at the myriad selections of alcohol. He’s holding the same suitcase Sam had dropped off earlier. He grabs a forty ounce of Old English 800. He makes his way to the register.

There’s a CUSTOMER at the register. He grabs his lotto ticket and begins to walk out the door. Dino slides to the register taking his place. He stops and comes back walking through Dino to get back in line.

CUSTOMER
(shouting)
Yo, man, you have me the wrong numbers!

ARAB CASHIER
(with an Arabic accent)
What man?

CUSTOMER
(mocking the Arab with deliberate speech)
You…gave…me…wrong…numbers.

He pushes the ticket back through the partition.

CUSTOMER
Give me the right numbers, man.

The Arab cashier grabs the lotto slip that the customer filled out and looks at it.

ARAB CASHIER
No, man, I give you right numbers. See here.

He holds up the lotto slip to the customer.

CUSTOMER
No, I crossed that number out. It’s supposed to be an X on the seven. I didn’t want…

DINO
(interrupting)
I’ll take your ticket.

CUSTOMER
What?

DINO
Let me buy the ticket he gave you and just get a new one. It’ll take him forever arguing with you.

CUSTOMER
Straight up, man.
(to Arab cashier)
Yo, give me my ticket back.

The Arab passes it through the glass.

CUSTOMER
Five bucks.

Dino hands him the five.

CUSTOMER
(to Arab)
Now run that shit again, but switch the six with seven, like it shows on the ticket.
(to Dino)
I always get June and July mixed up.

Dino smiles.

INT. SAM’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

Sam undresses and throws his suit in the dry clean bag. He strips down to his t-shirt and undies.

INT. SAM’S BATHROOM – CONTINUOUS

Sam washes his face, brushes his teeth, etc. Each time he pops up from the sink, we expect to see the Woman, but she never appears.

INT. SAM’S BEDROOM – CONTINUOUS

Sam exits the bathroom and goes to get into bed.

In the bed, is the Woman. She’s holding the sheets open for Sam to join her. The bed is saturated in blood. Sam climbs in with her. She pulls the sheets over Sam and wraps her arms around him. He closes his eyes.
