31. Scene 31
Freya drags Agent to the bomb.
Freya- We need to get everyone out. You call BB, I’ll do my best.
Agent- How long’s on it?
Freya- seven minutes.
Agent- We won’t get them out in time.
Freya- Forget BB. Send a shot up shout to everyone there’s a bomb. Just get them out.
Agent- I’m on to it.
Ariadne and Ex-agent talk, he has lowered his gun and is pacing around.
Ex-Agent- How old are you?
Ex-agent- My best friend died the same age.
Ariadne- How old are you now?
Ex-agent- 38. Came out after my vision started to fade. I caught meningitis in Russia when I was 32. Can’t see properly now. Not good for an agent.
Ariadne- Never went to work behind the desk?
Ex-agent- I’d rather die.
Ariadne- What did you do instead?
Ex-agent- Nothing. I just kept fit and started my own gym.
Ariadne- That’s something.
Ex-agent- After the life of an agent? No way.
