2. The Jackrabbit

 

CUT TO

 

Dusty black Army boots, the laces much broken and frayed and re-tied.

 

Walking.

 

Glaring sun in a cloudless sky.

 

A rattler's hiss.

 

Wide on PARACHUTIST.

 

He stops, looks down to the side.

 

A coiled rattlesnake, shaking its tail, hissing, head raised.

 

The PARACHUTIST steps away swiftly, so swiftly that the rattler, trying to strike his ankle, misses.

 

CUT TO

 

The PARACHUTIST walking.

 

Sweaty, he stops and drinks some water from an Army canteen.

 

As he drinks, we see the pistol in its worn leather holster, under his leather jacket.

 

Glugging water.

 

Sunglare. Right into the camera.

 

As he stoppers the canteen, he sees a JACKRABBIT emerging from a hole.

 

The JACKRABBIT stands on its hind legs.

 

PARACHUTIST

(O.S.)

Howdy, Mr. Rabbit.

 

They look at each other.

 

His blue eyes. Slight trace of a smile.

 

He walks on.
