EXT. TRAIN TRACKS – NIGHT
RENE and KENDRA walk along train tracks holding hands.
RENE: When did you first think about it?
KENDRA: Two years ago…I remember the exact day, actually.
RENE: What was it?
KENDRA: My brother. Things happened between us and it set me on a different course.
RENE: Right. Me, too. Just not my brother.
KENDRA: I know.
KENDRA: Your Dad…
RENE: Yep…I never considered it being an option, until we met. Not saying it’s a bad alternative to things but, being with you, makes me feel real again.
KENDRA: Me, too.
RENE: Not so sure I would want to do it now, unless it was with you…
They look at one another.
KENDRA: I’ve thought about that, too. It all depends…
RENE: On what?
KENDRA: Depends on trying to make it out of this place…
RENE: I know where there’s money, not much, but I think it will be enough to get us out of here.
RENE: We’d have to get it though, steal it.
KENDRA: Is it risky?
RENE: Risky enough but worth the reward.
KENDRA: Well, what’s our alternative, Rene?
RENE: We can do this together.
KENDRA: Let’s make it happen.
RENE: Let’s make it happen.
