INT. CAR-DAY

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Adams opens the door and the Female Hitcher gets into the passenger seat. With her comes a cool breeze.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

ADAMS

Cold out there.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Female Hitcher

It often is around this time of year. These plains can switch from hot to cold practically without notice.

ADAMS

Back in New York, we have more of a set weather cycle.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Female hitcher

I know.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Feeling uneasy, Adams switches on the radio to create some background noise and lighten the mood. Nothing but a light static pours out on several channels, so he shuts it off.

ADAMS

Where are you from? You got a name?

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Female Hitcher

I'm a hitcher, what do you think? I don't have a set place. Im trying to find it.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

ADAMS

Fair enough. Name?

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Female Hitcher

You can call me SAM.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012 2 versions.

ADAMS

Alright then, Sam.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

The uneasiness hasn't backed off, and has become more clear to Adams as she sits in attentive but apathetic silence.

SAM

Why the pale face?

ADAMS

It's been a long ride for me. I haven't slept in some time and I may have been daydreaming. I didn't know daydreams could be like this.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Adams looks over due to Sam's continued silence and starts to see her polka-dotted dress sleeves turn into water spotted sleeves. He shakes his head and looks forward abruptly, finding himself short of breath. His behavior makes Sam feel as if she did something wrong.

Sam

What's wrong?

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

adams

Nothing.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

sam

You're making me worried. Are you okay to drive?

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

adams

Yes.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Rain drops start to fall on the car. While Adams feels that this should alarm him, it instead comforts him. Sam points at the drops.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Sam

See? I told you the weather changes fast.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Adams loosens his grip on the steering wheel and rolls the window down to make sure that the rain is tangible reality. The cold wind and the drops bring him back to sanity.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Adams (CONT'D)

You're right. Thank you.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Adams glances in the rear view mirror and sees Hitcher from before sitting on the side of the road and disappearing into a dim white light. All this happens within a second, as if the dream was over. He is free.

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

ADAMS (CONT'D)

So are you headed to Texas or somewhere further? Will I need to drop you off before Texas at some point?

GarrettClark - on 03/26/2012

Sam

Where you're going is fine.
