Balancing Deviance: Land of Confusion

The first thing i say is "Think wizard of Oz... Okay it's nothing like that" Balancing Deviance is the story where 19 year old Baz Campbell finds himself thrown into a fantasy world for no reason whatsoever after a car crash that he believes killed his friend Mary. If that wasn't bad enough he is immediately accused of stealing a great magical & of course mysterious artefact punishable by death. So on the run Baz meets new friends to help derail his very often silly journey to get home. Is Baz really in another world maybe dead, crazy, hallucinating or just plain old dreaming as he explores this new world where myth and fantasy isn't quite what he didn't read about in books & almost every question could be answered with magic. This story is written in a script format, so be warned but it just means you will have you to use your imagination just a little bit more.

5. Mary Part 2

 

FADE IN: 

 

INT. MINES BAR - EVENING

 

The next day as Baz arrives back in a MESS.  Puntz stops him again.

 

PUNTZ

Find any?

 

BAR

Yea 1001, Gimmie a beer.

 

PUNTZ

You’re lying.

 

BAZ

Geez what gave you that impression?

I’ve done what you want my shift is over.

 

Puntz grabs a pint and SPITS into it giving it to Baz, he walks off.  Baz has an idea.

 

BAZ

Wait, this is almost exactly what happened

the last time before coming here,

if I drink this I might go home!

 

Baz DOWNS the spit filled beer.  Baz SPITS it back out not having teleported back to his world.

 

BAZ

Lame.

 

Baz walks over to Tanya at the table.

 

TANYA

Right I’ve got everything ready--

What the hell happened to you?

 

BAZ

(Confused)

It was weird!?! 

 

Tanya spots the game of poker about to be played with Puntz seeming to have the most wealth of smokes & booze.

 

TANYA

Okay here is your chance, good luck.

 

BAZ

I still don’t get how we’re going

to gamble with no money?

 

TANYA

Don’t argue & just go.

 

Baz quickly dashes to sit down & take the last chair.  The Ogres are amused by his daring attempt to play.

 

PUNTZ

Wat ya want now znub?

 

BAZ

Oh just to play a game with you fine gentle-Ogres

& the freedom of that cunt of a hunter over there.

 

All the ogres laugh.

 

PUNTZ

Ya rite, fis will be fun -- Wut ya got?

 

Baz gets out his chunky mobile phone.

 

BAZ

I have this magical brick that makes beep noises.

 

PUNTZ

Fat’z juzt a brick, wat else?

 

TANYA (O.S)

I told you it’s a brick!

 

BAZ

Shush -- Um, hair gel and eight

condoms that have yet to expire.

 

PUNTZ

Watz a condom?

 

BAZ

A magical protective helmet.

 

PUNTZ

Wat else?

 

BAZ

You want more?  This is classy stuff fella’s.

 

The Ogres nod they’re heads for more.

 

BAZ

Oh I know, the outdoors in a can!

 

He gets out an Aerosol can and sprays it on them at first they are baffled but then become amazed & agree.

 

PUNTZ

Okay you’re in.

 

MONTAGE:

 

Money is won and lost but Baz is still in, Baz points.

 

BAZ

Look a dwarf!

 

Distracting them he looks at their cards.  One Ogre’s gets suspicious and knocks out another Ogre.  The first Ogre leaves the table in his boxers and then another.  The stakes are high as its one on one with Baz and PUNTZ who is wearing a condom as a hat.

 

PUNTZ

I raize ya.

 

BAZ

I don’t have enough to continue?

 

PUNTZ

Uze yar witz znub.

 

Baz ponders looking at Tanya for some inspiration yet she steps forward to suggest the offer.

 

TANYA

How about me for one night of fornication?

 

BAZ

What!?!

 

PUNTZ

Deal!

 

BAZ

What the hell Tanya!?!

 

TANYA

Do you want this or don’t you?

 

BAZ

Not when you’re at stake!?!

 

TANYA

Look you’ve got a great hand.

 

BAZ

Yea but the odds of beating this hand

are a calculation I don’t know?

 

TANYA

Trust me.

 

PUNTZ

Let’z zee fem fen.

 

Baz hesitantly places his cards on the table, Puntz then displays his cards, which has a joker card in it.

 

BAZ

We won!?!

The rest of the ogres cheer.

 

PUNTZ

No, I win.

 

BAZ

What no -- You can’t use the joker card?

  That’s cheating!

 

The hours sign of since last fight, is about to reach one.

 

ALL THE OGRES

Cheating!?!

 

A bottle is thrown at the Ogre about to place the one hour passed sign as the rest BREAK OUT into another fight.

 

PUNTZ

If ya took fe time to read fe in

ouse game rulez on fe wall.

 

PUNTZ shows the game rules stating joker is highest card.

 

BAZ

But -- I won?

 

Tanya disappointed puts her hand on Baz’s shoulder.

 

TANYA

It’s okay, it’s not like my body

hasn’t be up for offer before.

 

BAZ

But-But I?

 

TANYA

It’s not your fault.

 

PUNTZ

Come ere kitty pie, kizz, kizz.

 

Tanya picks up the spray can.

 

TANYA

I think this will come in handy.

 

DISSOLVE TO:

 

INT. MINE BAR - NIGHT

 

Baz is at the bar with Forna drunk and angry with him self while Conrad still bloody & hung on the wall is close by.  Baz hears the cries of pain in the background.

 

BAZ

I don’t get it, why would she do--

 

FORNA

Ceer up lad, itz not da end of da world,

fere’z alwayz more fornication left in the zea.

 

BAZ

I could have betted a foot or something -- 

No wait I like my foot -- well something at least?

 

CONRAD

What about the forbidden key?

 

BAZ

Shut up I don’t have it.

 

FORNA

Well at leazt zomeone iz gonna

ave a good time tonight.

 

Baz stands up furious.

 

BAZ

No!  I cannot allow that, if not for Tanya then

for my self, if I’m gonna have a shitty night

so will everyone else.  Pitch axe please.

 

Forna gives Baz a pick axe.

 

BAZ

I said pick axe, thank you.

 

 

FORNA

Wat are ys gonna do?

 

BAZ

I might be drunk, but improvising is my ally.

 

Baz smashes the no fights breaking out sign.

 

CONRAD

You know he’s goner right?

 

FORNA

Oh ya, time to close shop.

 

CONRAD                         

*sigh* Along with my proof.

 

CUT TO:

 

INT. OGRE BEDROOM - NIGHT

 

The bedroom is a wasteland of broken furniture and mouldy food.  Tanya is shadowed by three humping Ogres.  Tanya’s screams makes Baz give a dramatic entrance by breaking the already broken bookcase.  They stop.

 

BAZ

Don’t worry Tanya I haven’t

given this a lot of thought.

 

Baz pulls the pick axe out of the bookcase, ready to charge he swings the pick axe over his head only to hit a low ceiling getting it stuck. 

 

BAZ

Shit!?!

 

OGRE

Get im!

 

Baz tries to remove the pick axe but as the Ogres finish their gang Bang Baz realises he’s in the wrong room and those cries is from a female Ogre.

 

BAZ

Oh that’s where all the Ogre dames are?

 

OGRE

Ere let me elp ya wit fat!

 

Baz rips out the pick axe out for an uneasy RUMBLE to be heard.  They pause to listen.

 

OGRE

Fat doezn’t zound good?

 

The ceiling collapses as a TORRENT of polluted water floods the room.  All of them are swept away by the torrent.  It sends them all shooting down the corridor and then into the darkness of mine shafts at great SPEED collecting anything and anyone in its path of destruction.

 

CUT TO:

 

INT. MINE BAR - NIGHT

 

The bar is closed as Tanya gives Conrad his weapons as he’s clearly been broken free.

 

CONRAD

Any trouble in getting my gear back from Puntz?

 

TANYA

Nah, he was a piece of cake

but what about you’re wounds?

 

Conrad opens his mouth and hidden under his tongue are two pills, he swallows them both giving him temporary healing and enchanted strength allowing him to stand straight.

 

TANYA

You could’ve escaped at any time?

 

CONRAD

Except this was the correct time but don’t

worry this is no cure, I’ve got a few hours tops.

 

TANYA

Wait, where is Baz?

 

CONRAD

Yea about that didn’t you tell him

loosing was the plan to get my guns

because I couldn’t say it out loud to him?

 

TANYA

He wouldn’t have agreed if I did.

 

They hear a rumbling.

 

TANYA

What has he done now?

 

They see the water storming in, Tanya freezes with shock from the sight of the torrent like a nightmare.

 

CONRAD

Tanya?

 

Conrad doesn’t waste any time as he flips a table & pulls her onto it so they can surf the water that practically doesn’t work as they are sent down the mines smashing into the walls & the debris.

It is brutal as both try & stay atop but Tanya gets sucked underneath as the harsh rocks take her out, Conrad concerned tries to save her but the waters are too strong.

 

CONRAD

Balls.

 

CUT TO:

 

INT. MINE LAKE CHAMBER - NIGHT

 

The torrent and its contents find its final destination dropping in from the high wall and into a LAKE.  The lake is now littered with dead Ogres.  Puntz who has been slashed by Tanya’s claws especially across his eyes manages to survive with six other Ogres who pick they’re selves out of the lake.  The only dry land is of an old abandoned part of the mine.

In the chamber there is only one exit as all the others have been blocked by rubble, the exit has mine carts tracks leading to an unknown destination.  Conrad’s table flies in, using his grappling hook he swings to land making it seem effortless, he looks back to see Baz breaking the surface of the water a short distance away.

Baz swims to an empty beer keg to float on.  He takes a look around only finding the six Ogres coming out of the lake coughing out water.  Baz sees Tanya’s GULF BAG floating in front.  With haste Baz dives into the murky waters to just barely see Tanya sinking to the bottom with blood coming from her head.

He swims and grabs her taking her back top to hurls her out of the water.  He gets out of the water & then pulls the remainder of Tanya out too.  Conrad catches up to them.

 

BAZ

Shit!  What do I do?  What did they do in the film

Abyss again?  Oh yea rip her top off!  

 

Baz is about to RIP her top off but suddenly realises.

 

BAZ

Crap!  That was only for the deliberator.

 

CONRAD

Get out of the way will ya.

 

Conrad performs CPR which magically works as Tanya bursts to life by punching him while getting up to cough out the water.  Both on their knees & before anyone can say anything she latches onto him shaking & not letting go.

 

BAZ

It’s alright you’re safe.

 

Tanya sees Baz but was under the impression that he’d saved her as Conrad feels as if he is in a very awkward position.

 

CONRAD

Um okay?  Is this the shock now?

 

Tanya looses her hold on Conrad as she goes a little faint.

 

BAZ

Just take it easy & breathe, how do you feel?

 

TANYA

Dizzy -- My ankle its--

 

BAZ

Yikes, I wouldn’t look it’s not pretty.

 

They see all the Ogres picking up rusty pick axes that were abandoned there.  Baz helps Tanya up.

 

BAZ

Let’s go cuz I’ve got a feeling they’re gonna say--

 

PUNTZ

Kill fem!

 

BAZ

Yep, just like that.

 

CONRAD

You two get to the mine cart, I’ll hold them off.

 

TANYA

Thank you.

 

CONRAD

Get going already.

 

Baz & Tanya begin to hobble away.  Conrad gets out his pistol & fires missing the ogres hitting the wall.  Unconvinced he missed he looks at the barrel of his gun to see that it has been bent but that’s the worse to come as the wall starts to rumble.  They all stop to look.

The huge chunk of the mine wall behind the ogres CRUMBLES revealing a dormant humanoid GIANT made of crystals with a distinct feature of what only one can assume to be a beard.

 

OGRE

DWARF!!!

 

BAZ

That’s a Dwarf!?!

 

Now everyone runs for their lives but The Dwarf catches up and STOMPS on one of the Ogres for being awoken.  Gaining speed it then picks up another Ogre and RIPS him apart, throwing the two pieced corpse at the delighted Conrad but just misses him.

 

CONRAD

You’re worth a lot of points.

 

Conrad stands his ground, not intimated by the Dwarf as he tosses away his gun & gets one out of his Gulf bag never stops firing but only stopping to reload. 

 

TANYA

Conrad, come on!?!

 

CONRAD

Just not yet.

 

Baz & Tanya pass all the stalagmites to reach the carts.  The Ogres lagging behind as the Dwarf’s 3rd victim gets punted by its foot as he is sent hurling at Conrad who has decided to catch up to the rest.

 

OGRE

ARRGGhhhh!!!

 

Conrad pulls out a SWORD and slices the Ogre missile in half. The remainder 3 Ogres manage to enter the Stalagmites with Conrad just behind as the Dwarf looms over him.

 

CONRAD

I need a bigger gun.

 

PUNTZ

Good luck!

 

The Dwarf raises its fist high and slams them at Conrad who manages to leap forward out of the fissured impact between the Dwarf’s legs.  The impacts fierce vibrations echo in the chamber CRACKING the stalactites connected to the ceiling to drop and smash into the Dwarf’s back breaking into small rubble.   

Conrad skids into recovery pulling the pins from 2 grenades with his teeth & chucks them just as the Dwarf sluggishly turns to face him to only get them EXPLODING in its face.  Conrad passes through underneath its legs once more before the Dwarf is knocked crashing into the ground.

 

INT. LAKE CHAMBER EXIT - NIGHT

 

Tanya holds her head resting in the FIRST mine cart Baz is trying to unlock the breaks.

 

BAZ

It’s jammed!

 

TANYA

You’re not doing it right!

 

BAZ

How many directions do you want

me to pull a rusty leaver!?!

 

There is three mine carts on three tracks labelled ONE to THREE from left to right.  The Ogres arrive.

 

PUNTZ

Get outta my way!

 

PUNTZ pulls Baz away with brute strength throwing him into a wall.  This snaps the lever & unlocks the breaks as Baz still holds onto the lever.

 

TANYA

BAZ!?!

PUNTZ starts pushing the mine cart for momentum before hopping in with Tanya who can barely move.

 

PUNTZ

Tyme for pay back bitch.

 

TANYA

BAAAA--

 

Puntz knocks out tanya with a punch as the FIRST cart shoots down the tracks while the remainder two Ogres trample on Baz to get into the SECOND mine cart to set off.

 

OGRE 1

Come on itz gettin back up!

 

OGRE 2

Were doez it go?

 

OGRE 1

Who carez!

 

Baz barely lifting himself off the floor manages to roll himself onto his back to breathe more easily in defeat.

 

BAZ

(Exhausted)

That’s it, I’ve had enough,

I’m done, time to wake up now.

 

With a little strength left he lifts his head to see Conrad sprinting like no tomorrow as the Dwarf gets back on its feet looking more pissed off than before.

 

BAZ

Ooh, give me a break.

 

Conrad arrives at the carts, lifting Baz onto his shoulder; he chucks him in the last cart and starts to push the cart.

 

CONRAD

How could you loose her?

 

BAZ

Have you tried being me?

 

Momentum reached Conrad jumps into the cart.  The Dwarf SMASHES through the low ceiling of the exit.

 

CONRAD

Well, it’s not giving up so neither shall we!

 

The Dwarf didn’t anticipate that the tracks descends down a hill as it looses its footing and starts to fall rolling down DESTROYING any track in front of it.

The track now horizontal SHOOTS the cart at great speed. The Dwarf SLAMS at the bottom of the hill but quickly gets up as if it was chasing the rabbit at the hound race track.  Exiting a tunnel the environment opens up to a vast visual spectacle of a confusing & a very broken track network.

 

BAZ

Who thought mining needed to

be this inefficient and complex!

 

CONRAD

Who do you think invented

roller-coaster's  ha-ha!

 

BAZ

Look there they are!

 

Baz points at the track & cart containing Tanya above them.

 

CONRAD

Hold on!

 

Conrad grabs a pick axe and WHACKS a nearby leaver that they pass changing their track.

 

BAZ

What about the Dwarf?

 

CONRAD

He’s long gone.

 

The track heads into darkness but the DWARF rages out.  

 

CONRAD

Or maybe not!

 

With the pick axe again he changes lane.  The dwarf lunges but misses at the last second but that doesn’t stop it. 

 

BAZ

What the hell do you think you’re doing!

 

CONRAD

Just keep a look out and I will change direction!

 

BAZ

You’re mad!?!

 

CONRAD

No just bored!

 

Both of them face forward taking no notice from behind as Ogre 2 from the SECOND cart strangles Conrad who struggles from his larger foe but the noise of the tracks doesn’t inform Baz that he’s in any danger.  The dwarf jumps down ahead of them knocking down the uphill track that they advance to.

 

BAZ

Hunter dude, make a right! 

Um, dude -- Bugger me!?!

 

Turning around Baz tries to help by grabbing Conrad’s gun from his holsters that Conrad is also desperately trying to get to but Baz takes & with point blank range shoots Ogre 2 in the head.  Conrad freed snatches his gun back off Baz.

 

CONRAD

Don’t you ever -- 

Ever touch any of my guns again!

 

BAZ

Okay, I would say I saved your life

but we’ve ran out of track.

 

Conrad looks at the track ahead destroyed by the Dwarf

 

CONRAD

Point!

 

BAZ

My thoughts exactly.

 

They both cling to the cart tightly as they go up track with the Dwarf waiting about to STRIKE.

 

BAZ

AAARRRGGHHHHHH -- 

Oh, they didn’t design this very well.

 

Going up track has slowed them down so much that they are now going straight back down at BREAK NECK speeds. The Dwarf misses but charges at them WRECKING the track. Conrad changes the track.  The Dwarf keeps on going and slams into the wall.

 

CONRAD

Too close--

 

BAZ

How about this for comfort!?!

 

The track bends to lead forward again but this track is also broken as their cart makes a JUMP.

 

BAZ/CONRAD

FUUUUCCCK!!!

 

The cart lands as if this was planned by the engineers that built this prototype of a rollercoaster.  They catch up to the last Ogre’s cart that they encountered as their track comes parallel within reaching distance.  The Ogre tries to PULL Baz out of his cart so he can fall.

 

BAZ

Shoot him, shoot him!

 

CONRAD

And waste bullets?

 

Conrad pulls Baz back into the cart while the Ogre refuses to let go as the two tracks start to separate.  The Ogre gets his LEG CAUGHT in his cart on some shrapnel as he looks back, they notice this as the Ogre tries to let go.

 

CONRAD

Grab him!

 

The Ogre is stretched from cart to cart.  Having let go of Baz it instead tries to strangle him while breathing heavily on him.

 

BAZ

Your breath, it’s choking me!

 

The tracks go their different ways ripping the Ogre in half as its GUTS fall out while they keep its top half remains.

 

CONRAD

I don’t think we need that.

 

Conrad throws the corpse away while looking ahead.

 

CONRAD

Now where did that Dwarf go?

 

BAZ

Oh don’t say that.

 

They wait patiently for the Dwarf to appear but it doesn’t.

 

BAZ

Phew -- Look there they are!

 

Pointing at Tanya’s cart now below seeing she’s barely conscious and Puntz not being aware as Conrad takes aim.

 

CONRAD

I can’t get a clear shot.

 

BAZ

Get closer then!

 

CONRAD

I’m trying!

 

BAZ

Gimmie your pick axe.

 

CONRAD

I need it to steer.

 

BAZ

What kind of an uber hunter are you

that you can’t shoot the levers?

 

Conrad throws him the Pick axe as Baz gets ready to jump down at the lower parallel track.  Baz looks at all the low beams he will have to not hit when making the jump.

 

CONRAD

You might earn some man points for this & maybe

a little respect from me, if you survive of course.

 

BAZ

I don’t care, I lost the poker game &

I’m sure as hell not going to let her pay

for my mistakes like I did for Mary.

 

Baz stands at the back of the cart as they are now speeding ahead of Puntz to jump back.

 

CONRAD

Uh, it was her plan to loose the poker game.

 

Baz pauses to let it all sink in for him to understand.

 

BAZ

WHA--?

 

Baz stands up a little too high as a low beam from above smacks him across his head as he falls & luckily for him manages to land on top of Puntz who catches glimpse of him at the last second as Baz yells.   Puntz throws Baz immediately off him over the edge but Baz’s pick axe manages to hook onto the cart’s side.  Puntz sees this and is in no hurry as he leans on the side

 

PUNTZ

Well look wut fe cat dragged in.

 

BAZ

Um, hi - Ready to give up?

 

Puntz gives out a roar of laughter, Baz notices that the track is passing under some bridges.

 

PUNTZ

Wut kinda znub of a Ero do ya fink ya are?

 

BAZ

The one who will kick your candy ass from

all the way here to Mordor twinkletard?

 

PUNTZ

Zay fat again to me face!

 

BAZ

Well in my current situation I think you’re

gonna have to make me Queen of tarts.

 

Puntz lifts Baz digging into his shoulders and as he stands full upright about to lift Baz to his face his head is cut clean off by the passing bridges. Baz drops down the side again but manages to hang on & climb into the cart.

 

BAZ

You see what you get with learning from

experience arsehole -- Oh yea Tanya.

 

Baz signals Conrad with a thumbs up that Tanya is alive.

 

CONRAD

Great you have a hard head, now pull the breaks.

 

Baz goes to lean over to do just that before being reminded to what happened to the lever that snapped.

 

BAZ

Uh, could you pick us up, it’s kinda broke --

No wait I’ll try the pick axe!

 

Baz jams the pick axe in and that snaps, he shrugs to Conrad on what to do now.

 

CONRAD

You’re kidding?

 

BAZ

How fucking long does this 

prototype rollercoaster go on for?

 

Baz looks ahead in the far distance to the end of the track with no track to jump on but a cliff that’s too far away.

 

BAZ

*sigh* I had to ask.

 

Baz notices a metal cigarillo case poking out of Tanya’s pocket, Baz opens it to find only one & its still dry.

 

BAZ

Well at least I’ve got time to smoke my last--

 

Suddenly Baz hears the roars of the Dwarf & looks to see it catching up as the cart is slowing down but not by much, Conrad continues to shoot at the Dwarf.

 

BAZ

Oh gimmie a break!?!

 

Baz looks down to see if he can jump out but again still will result with death so he lights up his last smoke trying to think of a plan.  Baz doesn’t realise that Tanya has got up not realising what’s going on as if she’s sleep walking.  She steals his from Baz taking a single puff and then THROWS it away and collapses back down in the cart.

 

BAZ

Bitch!?!

 

Conrad’s ricochet bullet from the Dwarf fractures a wall leaking out gas which luckily makes contact with the thrown cigarette, creating a huge EXPLOSION sending a fire ball that engulfs the dwarf.  The SHOCKWAVE gives the cart the extra needed boost for the jump over the gorge to crash land, this doesn’t please Baz.

 

BAZ

This is gonna hurt.

 

The Dwarf within the flames LEAPS to follow almost touching them as their cart crashes onto the hard rock.

DISSOLVE TO:

 

INT. MINES EXIT - MORNING

 

Baz crawls out of the cart leaving Tanya inside the wreckage.  Baz can see a light to exit the mines but his smiles turns to a frown when he finds Conrad with a gun to his head.

 

BAZ

Crap, how did you survive?

 

CONRAD

Grappling hook.

 

BAZ

Of course.

 

He pulls the trigger, Baz holds his head thinking he is already dead but no shot was fired.

 

CONRAD

You’ve made it this far Warlock. I’m impressed.

 

BAZ

I’m not a warlock, I’m a snub --

I mean a human.

 

CONRAD

Snub?  What’s a snub?

 

BAZ

I DON’T KNOW!?!

 

A howl is heard

 

BAZ

For Christ's sake it’s still alive!?!

 

They both look at the edge to find the damaged dwarf hanging on the edge.  Conrad hands Baz a pick axe.

 

CONRAD

Go on, it’s on me.

 

Baz hacks at the three remaining fingers keeping the dwarf up before it falls to its death.

 

CONRAD

As I was saying, you don’t need to worry,

I sure as hell know you’re not a warlock.

 

BAZ

That’s good, so I’m in the clear

your investigation is over, right?

 

CONRAD

Hardly, there are still many

questions needed answering.

 

Conrad goes and searches Baz’s pockets.

 

BAZ

Oh not again.  I don’t bloody! -- Hey get off! --

Oi! -- Stop violating--  See I don’t have it.

 

Conrad gets out Baz’s brick of a mobile phone.

 

CONRAD

Just double checking -- 

Why are you carrying a brick?

 

BAZ

It’s a magical brick!

Why won’t anyone believe me!?!

 

Conrad throws the brick at Baz’s face.

 

BAZ

My nose!

 

CONRAD

Okay how about your deviant friend here?

She’s the most suspicious one after all.

 

BAZ

Yea sure -- whoa!  Wait! 

Hold up for a second there cowboy.

 

CONRAD

The name is Conrad!  

 

BAZ

Yea whatever -- Look she doesn’t have it either

check her if you want.  I’m starting to think

this whole stupid key doesn’t exist.

 

Conrad checks Tanya for the key but finds nothing. 

 

CONRAD

Sure how could a jerk like you waste my time &

steal from a high security vault besides I’ve over

heard both of your stories yet none of this makes any sense.

 

BAZ

Welcome to my world.

 

CONRAD

And if you two were to have an employer he’s extremely

incompetent or you might be right oor maybe you could

be the key -- So this is how it’s gonna work, I’m gonna tag

along with you for a little while till I’ve figured

out what happened that night.  

 

BAZ

Uh, you’d be wasting your time.

 

Conrad takes aims to Tanya’s head.

 

CONRAD

Great, then you can tell me who your employer is? -- 

Only kidding, you don’t have a choice & I’ll be putting

more than my reputation on the line to prove your innocence

so I’ll take one of these crystals now as an early payment.

 

BAZ

Fine, whatever Holmes tag along.

 

CONRAD

Now one last thing as by law I’m obliged to 

exterminate any unregistered deviant immediately.

 

BAZ

Hey, she’s innocent, a good person

deviant thingy -- She’s my pet!

 

Tanya is semi conscious.

 

TANYA

I heard that.

 

BAZ

No you didn’t -- Look I thought you were

meant to be one of the good guys?

 That’s what she believed stupidly enough.

 

CONRAD

She did, did she?

 

Conrad lowers his gun putting Baz at ease.

 

CONRAD

Oh yea that reminds me, Mary.

 

BAZ

Go on spill it, I can take it.

 

CONRAD                    

I take every job seriously but there was no

girl in that castle, seen or recovered.

 So only you know what really happened.  

 

Baz is gloomed as even though he managed to save Tanya this time he still did nothing to prevent Mary’s death before reaching this world.

 

BAZ

I figured as much.

 

CONRAD

Don’t look so glum.  People die all the time &

with me as your personal bodyguard you’ve got nothing to fear.
