Charlie pulls back and whispers to Pedro.

Charlie: He doesn’t look so scary…

Pedro peeks around the corner of the container.

Pedro: Why is he just standing there?

Charlie: Maybe he’s waiting for someone?

Pedro: In the middle of an alley?

Charlie: Hum…You might have a point there…

They are both unaware during this discussion that the steps are now coming closer to them.

Charlie: Who is it?

The steps stop. Silence falls in the alleyway. Charlie and Pedro look at each other. Pedro puts a finger to his lips. Charlie nods. Pedro takes a peak around the garbage container.

Pedro: The footsteps are too heavy.

Charlie: What do you mean?

Pedro: Stan is not that big a guy. And the shoes he was wearing wouldn’t sound like this on this pavement.

Charlie: You noticed all of this?

Pedro: That’s part of my trade.

Charlie: And what trade was that, again?

Pedro: Shhhh…

He grabs Charlie and drags her behind the garbage bin. 

Charlie: Hey!…

Pedro covers her mouth with his free hand.

Pedro: Shhhhh…

Pedro (listening): Did you hear that?

Charlie: The owl?

Pedro: No. Someone is coming…

Charlie listens as the sound of footsteps appear to come closer.

Charlie: Ah, this could be Stan coming back from the library.

Pedro: I don’t think so. Too heavy…

Charlie: What?

Pedro (smiling): As a writer, you should know never to judge a book but its cover.

Charlie (smiling as well):  That’s very true. 

There’s a pause. An owl is heard in the distance, followed by the sound of footsteps approaching.
