BLack:

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

The sound of a shaking, rickety old stagecoach traveling at a fast pace. Tom comes to.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom pov:

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Int. - Stagecoach, day

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom see's the back of the driver, whipping ferociously at the horses pulling the wagon. Tom looks to his right, and see's a middle aged man.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Middle aged man

Dad! He's awake now!

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Dad

Give 'im some water!

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015 2 versions.

We see Tom's face for the first time since he woke up. He is terribly sunburnt. Skin flaking and is cherry red. Looks like hell. The man hands him down a canteen full of water. Tom reaches for it, and is immediately reminded of the gunshot in his tender shoulder. His arm supporting his weight gives out.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom chandler

Shit!

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

The middle aged man hands down the canteen to Tom's good arm. Tom nods and takes a gulp.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom chandler (CONT'D)

Thank you.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

middle aged man

Don't mention it. Now, you're in pretty bad shape, but we're gonna get you taken care of, alright?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom nods.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Middle aged man (CONT'D)

My name is Daniel Laurence. And yours?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom rests his head back on the pile of burlap sacks on the floor.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom chandler

Tom Chandler.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Daniel

Nice to meet you, Tom Chandler.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

The stagecoach comes to a slow stop. The driver/dad turns around, revealing an elderly but handsome face.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015 2 versions.

Dad

We're here.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom chandler

Where?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Dad

Doc's place.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Daniel

Don't worry. Doc is the best doctor to ever live. Practically a miracle worker.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

Tom limps in between the two men. His good shoulder around Daniel. Dad races ahead to notify the doctor.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Int. Doctors office, day

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

We are now in the doctors office. Dad rings the bell, and the doctor comes through a door. Wearing a nice suit, he takes a quick look at Tom.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Doc

What in the hell happened to you?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Daniel

We're not entirely sure ourselves.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015 3 versions.

Doc

Well, lets get you sorted out the, shall we?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

The doctor ushers the three men into the door whence he came. Daniel helps lower Tom onto a bed. The doctor heads over for a cabinet. He takes a box out. He walks over to the bed, and sets the box down on a nightstand beside the bed. He opens the box, showing surgical equipment. Tom is startled by the sight of such crude looking objects. He starts to panic.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom chandler

Uhhh...no no no...there's need for that...I'll just tough it out...The wounds will heal eventually.....right?

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Tom tries to sit up. The doctor pulls out a small glass jar filled with clear liquid, and a handkerchief. He lightly dabs some on a cloth and puts it up to Tom's nose and mouth.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Doc

(reassuring)Hush now.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015 2 versions.

Tom chandler

Goddammit.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Almost instantaneously Tom falls out of consciousness once again. The doctor chuckles.

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Doc

Good ol' chloroform!

BaileyNeve - on 01/27/2015

Dad and Daniel look confused by what just happened.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

dad

(unsure) We'll leave it to ya doc.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

Doc

I'll be done with him in about three hours time. Come back then, and I'll have him good as new.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

And with that, father and son leave the office.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

We focus on the doctor as he lifts up some horrifying looking pair of shear-like objects. He snaps them open and closed, and gives a chuckle. It's very evident the doctor loves doing his job.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015 3 versions.

Ext. Doctors office - 5:00 Pm

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

A caption fades onto the screen reading, 'Three Hours Later' in western like font. Tom's rescuers pull up to the entrance of the doctors office.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015 2 versions.

Int. Doctors office - 5:00 PM

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015 2 versions.

The two men walk into the 'operating room', to find the doctor wiping Tom's forehead with a wet washcloth . The camera moves as the two men walk towards the doctor. We have finally moved enough to see Tom.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015 2 versions.

Tom looks amazing. Sunburns are gone. Gunshot wounds covered with bandages. With a suit and a bowlers hat, you would never be able to tell that he was brutally robbed and beaten the previous night. The doctor has even gone the extra mile to comb and style his hair. Daniel wasn't lying. The doc was a miracle worker.

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015 2 versions.

The two men look surprised. The doc has done some truly magnificent work.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015

Daniel

I don't know how you do it.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

Doc

To be honest, I don't either. However, though he looks fine, he's far from it. He's lost a massive amount of blood. He needs rest. Is it your intention to take him in?

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015 4 versions.

Dad

Do we have a choice?

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015 2 versions.

Doc

He'll die if you leave him on his own. And as a good Christian man, I think you are somewhat obligated to help the boy. I've done my part, now it's your turn.

BaileyNeve - on 02/10/2015 2 versions.

Dad

Alright. Let's get him loaded in the wagon.

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015

Daniel jaunts over to Tom, and picks him up. They exit the room.

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015

Dad (O.S)

Thanks doc!

BaileyNeve - on 03/13/2015

Ext. - laurence stagecoach - EVening

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

It's just about dark now, and the father and son sit in the front as the ride. We can see Tom unconscious in the back, with his head propped up on a sack of hay.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

Dad

You think it was him?

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

Daniel

Who?

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

Dad

Who the hell do you think? Kenny Jones.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

Daniel

I've about had it with him. Needs to leave this goddamn place alone.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

Dad

Something needs to be done. Something soon. If we don't, who will?

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 3 versions.

Daniel

I don't know. But we don't have nearly enough resources necessary to retaliate.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

Dad

I know, I know. But, for now, I'm going to go home take a bath, eat some grub, cuddle up to your mother and take a good long nap.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

ext. - laurence home - night

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015

The stagecoach pulls up to the Laurence residence. It's a small place, but awfully cozy by the looks of it.

BaileyNeve - on 03/16/2015 2 versions.

The two men ease Tom out of the stagecoach.

BaileyNeve - on 03/18/2015

The enter the door.

BaileyNeve - on 03/18/2015

Int. - LAurence home - Night

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015

The coziness shown on the outside is nothing compared to what is on the inside. It's dim, sporadically dotted with lanterns. A light blue kettle sits on top of the stove, producing a baby cloud of steam. On the wall there is a hand stitched quote. "No kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted - Aesop". Straight ahead is a large woman bent over, poking the fire. Her back is turned towards us. This is MOMMA.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015 3 versions.

Momma

(with back turned) I was beginning to worry...I--

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015

She turns her back to see her husband and son carrying a tattered and torn Tom Chandler.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015 2 versions.

Momma (CONT'D)

(suspicious) Who's this?

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015

Dad

I'll explain later. Prepare the guest room.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015

She rushes her plump body down the hall. They follow her.

BaileyNeve - on 03/26/2015

INT. - GUEST ROOM - NIGHT
