Screen 1
    ONE:

Exterior of the Shack, along the alleyway. A GROUP of the REGENT’S TROOPS – a variation of the Hollern Guards from Chapter One – are clustered here, the Sergeant amongst them speaking with a LOCAL URCHIN. Figure there are five, total.

The URCHIN is pointing towards the SHACK.

1. SABRE/shack: Never you mind how I acquired it, Kaya…

    TWO:

Interior of the back room.

SABRE is seated cross-legged in front of KAYA.

KAYA holds the CASE in one hand, end of the PIPE in the corner of her mouth. Smoke leaks from her mouth.

2. SABRE: …what I require is how I can open it.

3. KAYA: With its key, Allyrian.

4. SABRE: Brilliant. I had managed that divination
myself.

    THREE:

New two-shot. KAYA, a slight smile, the end of the pipe still stuck in the corner of her mouth.

SABRE is growing annoyed.

5. KAYA: Such haste. One wonders why.
6. KAYA: One wonders what is inside.

7. SABRE: One does wonder, witch.

Screen 2

    ONE:

Exterior of the SHACK once more. The REGENT’S TROOPS are drawing their BLADES, as the SERGEANT gestures for them to remain silent, preparing to enter.

1. SABRE/inside: One wonders at my patience

    TWO:

Interior front room. WESTFIELD is leaning against the wall beside the entrance, arms folded, bored. Looks like he’s asleep.

2. SABRE/off: …and whether or not you’re wasting my
time

    THREE:

Stet, closer. WESTFIELD is opening one eye as the SERGEANT is cautiously edging through the TARP that covers the front door, here, his BLADE leading the way.

3. SABRE/off: …or perhaps waiting for something more?
