Now far to go now. I'm almost to the end of the writing. This has been a fun personal project for me. No matter what happens to this story, which at the moment would be steaming piles of nothing, I can say I enjoyed writing it.
UTTERLY RUCKED 19Logo by Guy "Don't give me a nickname, you bastard" Landry
by David Tulloch
Patel on her cellphone at the cafe with Patton looking on.
Patel: "C'mon, answer it, Bell."
Patel: "Bell, listen, we know who the killer is."
(from phone): "It's okay, so do we."
Switch to the bar. A mob made up of most of the remaining team and Burnsie (but not the two locks, nor the blinded flanker who remain behind).
(from phone): "It's the Jensen girl."
Bell: "Yes, I'm on it. I'm on it."
Bruce "Piker" Pike (No.16): "We're coming for you, bitch."
Mike 'Brick" Housden (No.13): "Can't believe it."
Latimer (No.10): "She's gonna pay."
Bell: "I've got to go ... if I don't keep up they'll lynch her.
One of the team, Jason "Little Willy" Williams (No.17), knocks the cellphone from Bell's hands as he pushes past.
Bell: "Hey! Watch it."
Titles and full page panel.
The mobs momentum pulls Bell along, he yells back out to the dropped phone.
Bell: "It's Cheryl Jensen."
(from dropped phone): "It's Melanie Jensen."
Part Nineteen, Tackle Bag
Patel closing her cellphone.
Patel: "Bell said it's Cheryl?
Patel: "Could it be both of them? A mother - daughter thing?"
Patel: "Maybe? But I doubt it."
Patel: "C'mon ... we'd better get back."
The two of them running out of the cafe.
Meanwhile the mob, with Bell and two officers in tow, has arrived at Cheryl (and Wayne and Mel's) room.
Latimer: "Open up. Now!"
Housden: We're gonna tear you a new one.
Bell: "Calm down, everyone. This is an arrest not an execution.
Latimer: "Yeah ... right."
Wayne opens the door and is pushed aside.
Wayne: "What is all this racket ... ?"
Latimer: "Out the way, Wayne."
Bell: "Please step aside, Mr Jensen."
Wayne: "What is going on?"
Bell: "We have reason to believe that your wife may be involved in the recent murders."
Pike: "Cheryl's the fucking killer!"
Latimer: "Where is she?"
Wayne: "Um ... she's, she's in the shower."
Latimer and Housden open the door to the steamy bathroom.
Wayne: "You can't go in there."
Latimer: "Just try and stop us."
Wayne tries to reason with them, but they have disappeared into the steamy room. Bell puts his hand on Wayne's shoulder.
Wayne: "But she's all naked. And wet."
Burnsie: "I think that's how they're used to seeing her."
Wayne getting his first glimpse of reality. Bell ignoring him.
Wayne: "What do you mean?"
Latimer and Housden re-emerge from the steam carrying the naked Cheryl. You can arrange arms, hands and angles so nothing is actually seen.
Latimer: "Nice tackle, mate."
Cheryl: "What the fuck are you boys doing?"
Housden "Shut up, killer bitch."
Latimer: "We know it's you."
Housden: "Yeah. Davies saw you."
Pike coming from adjoining room carrying a backpack or bag ...
Pike: "Look what I found."
Close up of the bag filled with weapons. Knives, rope, spikes, files, hacksaw, tools, spiked gloves, a machete, a hatchet, a belt with knife, etc.
Housden (off): "Jesus. That's some serious stuff."
Latimer (off): "That proves it."
Bell moves in for the arrest
Bell: "Cheryl Jensen, I'm placing you under arrest."
Cheryl: "It's not mine. I'm innocent.
Cheryl being handcuffed by Bell. Make sure the handcuffs are shown, and the speech bubble is a double bubble.
Bell: "If there's one thing I can safely say about you Mrs Jensen ...
... it's that you haven't been innocent for a long time."
