- "As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do." - Andrew Carneige
"We're gonna die in here."
"Shut up, Cole." The old hobo, Charlie, murmurs. While Charlie has a black eye and a blood-covered face, Cole hasn't a scratch.
In a meat locker, Charlie and Cole are locked in, just like the others.
"I saved your life." Cole says and looks at Charlie. "Why are you mad?"
The old man closes his eyes and sighs. "You told them where they were."
"I saved your life."
"They're gonna kill me anyway." Charlie spits. "Don't you get it? They're gonna kill us when they have the women."
Just as Charlie finishes his sentence, the door to the meat locker opens. Cal and Cooper heads to Cole. Cooper begins to untie him.
"What... What are you doing?" Cole asks nervously as he is forced up and out of the room.
"We're just making sure there's people where you said. Otherwise we'll kill you and all of your friends." Cal says and walks out of the room, followed by Cooper and Cole.
In another meat locker, Andy is sitting alone. Simon Flenderton is currently checking the ropes.
"Fuck you! Let me go!" Andy yells.
Flenderton sighs and goes to the corner of the room, where a bag is laying. He takes up some duct tape and covers Andy's mouth.
"Should've thought of this long ago." Flenderton says and continues with the ropes.
In the former cafeteria, are everyone, but Flenderton, staying. Cooper with Cole.
"Please." Cole says and looks around. "Don't kill anyone."
Cal laughs, and the others follow.
"Get the black man." Cal says to Rob Tender. Rob turns around and a minute later he returns with a tied-up Nique.
"What the fuck is going on?" Nique says while getting moved to Cal, by Rob.
"Just showing your friend here what we're capable of." Cal says and smiles.
Nique's eyes widen. He knows what will happen. Cole also knows.
"No! No, no, no!" Cole chants. "Don't do it. I'll do anything!"
"You will." Cal says and turns his head, to look at Cole. He takes up a .357 S&W revolver and cocks it.
Nique swallows hard. "Please, man. Don't do this."
Cal smiles. "Allright. I won't." He turns to Cole. "What's the old guy's name?"
"C-Charlie?" Cole says reliefed.
"Yea, Charlie." Cal smiles and raises the gun, headed to the meat locker where Charlie is. A shot can be heard and Nique and Cole stands speechless.
"Holy fuck." Nique comments.
