January 1, 2009

 Charlie follows Pedro into the dark room, it only by a fireplace. She looks around as her eyes adjust to the dimness of the room. She looks up to see a familiar face looking down at here. She gasps.

Charlie: Falbala!? Is that you?

Pedro: I don’t hear anything.

Charlie: That’s a good thing or a bad thing?

Pedro: I’m not sure…

Pedro looks around the clearing.

Charlie: Didn’t Pat say your contact was waiting for us?

Pedro: Yes, but…

Charlie: Well, let’s not make him wait. 

She heads for the door.

Pedro: Shhhh!

Charlie: I didn’t say anything…

Charlie looks at Pedro, then at Pat.

Pedro: It’s actually all tied together.

Charlie: Is it, now?…

Pat:  You two should get going. I told him you would be there shortly.

Pedro: Yes. Thank you Pat. I owe you one.

Pat (with twinkling eyes): Yes…you do…. Charlie, it was a pleasure, if a brief one, to meet you. Take care of yourself.

Charlie (shaking the little man’s hand): Likewise, Pat. Thank you for your help.

Pedro: Ok. Let’s go.

They get on Pedro’s bike and ride off. Pat pulls out h cell phone, punches a few times.

Pat: Hey… they’re on their way..Yes, both of them. You still have the girl?… Good… Make sure she’s ready…

He hangs up.

Blackout.

Pat: So that’s what you were looking for, wasn’t it?

Pedro looks at Pat, but doesn’t respond.

Charlie (looking at the two men):  I’m not sure I follow… I thought we were looking for a pendant?

Pedro: Yes…. and no…
