MUSIC CUE

INTERIOR HOSPITAL ROOM AMBIENCE

WOMAN

Events are afoot but this is no game. The players are set but they are not playing for points. A win here is simply walking away with your soul. Pay attention. The lesson lies in your questions not the answers. Who done it is not as important as why they did it.

This is 13 Reflections. 

Reflection 2: Anything but Holy.

MUSIC CUE - DARK MAGIC CLOTHING BOUTIQUE AMBIENCE

HEATHER

Piece Unique how can I help you? Yes, we have a nice selection prom dresses.


LUCY SCREAMS

A KNOCK AT THE DRESSING ROOM DOOR

HEATHER (CONT'D)

Lucy? Are you okay?

LUCY

There’s a man...

HEATHER

Where?


LUCY

There in the mirror.

HEATHER

What? No one is here.

LUCY

I was trying on these jeans and he was there, just behind me. There! Right there.


HEATHER

I’ve been just outside your dressing room all this time. No one came past me.


LUCY

He’s in the mirror.

HEATHER

In the..? Maybe you should sit down.


LUCY

I’m not sitting down. Not here. I’m fine. Somethings wrong with your mirror.


HEATHER

But what can be wrong with a mirror?


FOOTSTEPS RUN AWAY


HEATHER (CONT'D)

Come back. You haven’t paid for those jeans. Lucy!


MUSIC CUE - ASHLEY’S HOUSE PHONE RING


Hello?

ASHLEY


RAY

It’s me Ray, you ok?

ASHLEY

No. I’m not ok. I don’t know where Polly is or who has her. And the cops left everything in a mess.


RAY

I know life sucks right now but Polly will be okay. We’ll find her. Here’s some good news to cheer you up, I got Einhorn to increase the budget. He’s even added another fifteen thousand to dress out his office.


ASHLEY

That’s good news?

RAY

Isn’t it? So should I have the mirrored windows expedited?


ASHLEY

Like I care. I mean a lot that’ll do me since Einhorn will probably fire me when I don’t show up for work.


RAY

He doesn’t know about Polly. I’ll cover for you here.


ASHLEY

Thanks Ray.

RAY

You take it easy. Sorry about Polly I’m sure she’s fine. I’ll make dinner okay?


ASHLEY

Yeah. Whatever. I need to scrub today off of me.

RAY

Didn’t mean to scare you.

ASHLEY

Did you hear that?

RAY

Hear what?


ASHLEY

Polly. She was calling to me.

RAY

Um. Nope. Not a thing.

ASHLEY

Crap. You didn’t hear her at all?

RAY

No Ash, sorry. Maybe you’re hearing things.


ASHLEY

Turn around Ray.

RAY

And miss all your splendor?

ASHLEY

Seriously Ray? What are you twelve?

RAY

Sorry.

ASHLEY

Hand me my robe.

RAY

DARK MAGIC MUSIC CUE

AGENT LEE

Show me Ashley Harker.

EERIE WOOSH


AGENT LEE (CONT'D)

Hmmm. Seems you’ve had a string of bad luck. Very bad luck indeed.


KNOCK AT THE DOOR. EERIE WOOSH. KNOCK AT THE DOOR.

AGENT LEE (CONT'D)

Who could that be?

FOOTSTEPS ON CARPET. DOOR OPENS.

AGENT LEE (CONT'D)

Sheriff Gordon. What a surprise.

SHERIFF

I hope I’m not interrupting.

AGENT LEE

Not at all. How on earth did you find me?


SHERIFF

FBI agent in a two horse town? It don’t take a genius.


AGENT LEE

Plus you own both horses.

SHERIFF

True that.

AGENT LEE

So what brings you here?


SHERIFF

Got a call this morning about another missing girl. Mina Chu. A sophomore in college.


AGENT LEE

Interesting.

SHERIFF

Last seen two nights ago at a rave club downtown.


AGENT LEE

Who called it in?

SHERIFF

Her grandmother. Said Mina didn’t show up for work.


AGENT LEE

Rave club, hooking up, hangover, missing work? Seems like an easy equation to solve.


SHERIFF

Maybe, but what’s curious is the surveillance footage from the club shows Mina enter the bathroom but she never comes out.


AGENT LEE

That is curious.

SHERIFF

Want more curious? I locked up a kid for smashing glass and mirrors last night. His path of broken glass puts him on Polly Harker’s street.


AGENT LEE

You think he had something to do with her going missing?


SHERIFF

Let’s say I gotta feeling.

AGENT LEE

So you’re the psychic now?

SHERIFF

Or it could be last nights chili.


AGENT LEE

I’d very much like to question this young man.


SHERIFF

I’m on my way to search his apartment. Thought you’d like to come with. He’s still locked up at the station so we’ll sit him down for a nice long chat.


AGENT LEE

Brilliant.

AGENT LEE (CONT'D)

I don’t want to be a bother but can we make a stop first? I’d like to check in with Mrs. Harker again.


SHERIFF

Same thing I was thinking. I was going to ask if you read minds but then I remembered... You’re a psychic.


AGENT LEE CHUCKLES


AGENT LEE

Indeed. I am.

MUSIC CUE ASHLEY’S HOUSE TEA KETTLE WHISTLES

ASHLEY

Who took Polly? For what reason? I spent all my savings moving here.

(MORE)

ASHLEY (CONT'D)

I don’t have any cash to pay a ransom but I’ll find a way if that’s what it takes.


RAY

When we were talking on the phone, where were you?


ASHLEY

Standing right here. I’d have seen anyone leaving. They’d have to run past me.


RAY

The upstairs windows?

ASHLEY

All of the windows were locked from the inside and the cops didn’t find any finger prints.


RAY

Makes no sense. No sense at all.

ASHLEY

That FBI agent thinks I had something to do with it.


RAY

Statistically speaking he’d be correct. Remember the mother who drowned her own children, or the guy that killed his son but said he was abducted...


ASHLEY

Ray, really?

RAY

Of course in your case he’s completely wrong.


ASHLEY

You’re so much cuter with your mouth shut.



DOORBELL FOOTSTEPS ON WOOD DOOR OPENS


AGENT LEE

Mrs. Harker may we come in?

ASHLEY

Have you found Polly?

SHERIFF

No Mrs. Harker, I’m here on another matter. Do you happen to know a Mina Chu?



No.

ASHLEY


SHERIFF

How bout Billy Hazelbob?

ASHLEY

No.

SHERIFF

Have you driven your truck since Polly went missing?


ASHLEY

No. Why?

SHERIFF






FOOTSTEPS

I noticed the side mirror on your truck is broken.


ASHLEY

How did that happen?



RAY

Anyone for tea? Dinner won’t be ready for another ten minutes.


AGENT LEE

You have a chef?

RAY

Boyfriend.

AGENT LEE

Mrs. Harker? You told me you didn’t have a boyfriend.


RAY

You must had heard her wrong. I am the boyfriend.


ASHLEY

There’s some confusion on the definition of that word.


AGENT LEE

Confusion of the mind leads to crimes of the heart.


ASHLEY

Ray was at work. I was at home. No confusion there.


AGENT LEE

Well maybe you can clear up something else then.


ASHLEY

Anything.

AGENT LEE

Why was there a murder investigation regarding your late husband?


RAY

Hold on. What? Murder?

AGENT LEE

Cat, bag, out. She didn’t tell you? Oops. My bad.


ASHLEY

I did not murder him, but I am responsible for his death.


RAY

No. You can’t mean that.

ASHLEY

It was an accident. But what does that have to do with finding Polly?


LIGHTER DRUM THUMBED FLAME

CAP SNAPPED SHUT



AGENT LEE

I’m just curious if there’s anything else you’re not telling me.





CAP OPENS

ASHLEY

I’ve told you everything.


LIGHTER DRUM THUMBED FLAME

Asshat.






ASHLEY (CONT'D) SHERIFF

I for one believe you Mrs. Harker. I’m removing Agent Asshat from your hair to follow up on a more promising lead.


ASHLEY

Thank you Sheriff.

She knows more than she’s telling.

SHERIFF

Sixth sense again?

AGENT LEE

Well, it’s not last nights chili. That’s for sure.


SHERIFF

No?

AGENT LEE

















CAR SLOWS

No. I had Chinese for dinner.

SHERIFF

Well, you could have at least given me a heads up that you were going to play bad cop with her.


AGENT LEE

There was little choice, from what I’ve observed, good cop is the only way you can play it.


SHERIFF

I’ll take that as a compliment.

AGENT LEE

As you wish.

Uh. What’s that? Smells like wet dog and rotten eggs.


SHERIFF

I believe that’s Eau de college boy.


FOOTSTEPS ON CARPET

AGENT LEE

Bathroom is clear.

SHERIFF

Over here in the bedroom.

QUICK FOOTSTEPS ON CARPET SLOW FOOTSTEPS ON BROKEN GLASS

AGENT LEE

Strange...

SHERIFF

You mean all of the mirrors being broken?


AGENT LEE

No. This severed arm on the floor.

SHERIFF

What in the? I think that’s Mina Chu’s arm. Look at that butterfly tattoo. She had one just like it on her forearm.


AGENT LEE

Not much blood.

SHERIFF

There’s no blood at all.

Maybe it was hacked off somewhere else?


A STEP FORWARD












LEE GRUNTS SCUFFLING


SHERIFF

Maybe you shouldn’t touch it.

AGENT LEE

It’s still warm.

SHERIFF

Watch out. It’s moving.

SHERIFF GASPS

AGENT LEE

It’s alive.



AGENT LEE (CONT'D)

Get it off me.

SHERIFF

Holy shit.

AGENT LEE
