Jessie is asleep, soundly on her bed. We see her bottle of
whiskey sitting on her bedside table. Her phone rings. She
slowly awakens and reaches for her phone. When she gets it,
it reads "Rachel." She answers.

JESSIE

Hello?

RACHEL
(v.o., rather dull)
Hey. Did I wake you?

JESSIE

Yeah.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

54.

RACHEL
Well, I have some news. And you’re
not gonna like it, but I’d rather
you hear it from me than see it on
the news.

JESSIE
What, Rachel? What are you talking
about?

RACHEL
Well, first of all... I’m telling
you the smaller part. And you have
to promise me you won’t hold a
grudge.

JESSIE
Okay. No grudge.

RACHEL
Desi slept with Travis last night.

JESSIE
What? I mean, that’s bogus, but
how is that newswort---

RACHEL
There’s more. She’s dead, Jessie.

JESSIE
(disbelief)

What?

RACHEL
They found her car in an alleyway
in Hammond, late last night. She
was stabbed three times, and her
leg was crushed.

JESSIE
Oh, my God. Well, do they know who
did it?

RACHEL
They think so. Travis.

JESSIE
What? No. Travis is fifty other
things, but he’s not a kill-

RACHEL
They found blood. And semen. All
in the same spot where Desariee was

RACHEL (cont’d)
parked last night. Nobody saw
Travis after he left the club last
night.

Jessie looks heartbroken. But, as usual, no tears.

RACHEL
I’m gonna come pick you up. Can
you be ready in fifteen minutes?

JESSIE
Yeah. I’ll be ready.

She hangs up the phone, and looks down in disbelief.

EXT. CHAMBERLAIN HOUSE- DAY

Ryan sits on the porch, looking very tired. He looks over,
to see Rachel’s car turning a corner. He stands up and
awaits her arrival. She pulls into the driveway, and Ryan
walks up to the passenger door.

RACHEL
How’s she doin’?

RYAN
Same as usual. Trying to cry, but
no tears.

Rachel closes her eyes tightly and sighs. She opens them.

RACHEL
You want a ride to school?

RYAN
Nah, I’d better walk.

RACHEL
How are you doing?

RYAN
Same as always. Tired, stressed...
taking care of everyone but myself.

Rachel nods.

RACHEL
Yeah, I know that feeling.

The front door opens, and Jessie steps outside. She walks
toward Rachel’s car.

(CONTINUED)

CONTINUED:

56.

JESSIE
Ry, you coming?

RYAN
Nah, sis, I think I’m gonna
walk. I could use the time to
myself.

Jessie looks at him, understanding, and nods.

JESSIE
Okay. I’ll see you tonight, then.

RYAN
