RECKONING Season 1 Episode 22/120

INT. RACHEL’S APARTMENT – LIVING ROOM - NIGHT

Sara quietly sneaks into the apartment. She doesn’t want to wake Rachel. The room is totally in the dark. Sara heads to the couch on her tiptoes. Just when she wishes to take her jacket off, the lights go on.

Rachel is standing in the doorway of her room. She’s angry.

RACHEL
Where were you?

SARA
I went out to get some fresh air. To collect my thoughts. I can’t stand to be indoors. You know ... because of what happened.

Rachel’s face slightly softens.

RACHEL
I know, but someone could have seen you. Or attack you.

SARA
I’m careful.

Rachel frowns and crosses her arms.

RACHEL
Whatever. Don’t do it again. I was worried that something happened.

SARA
(smiles)
I’m fine. Really. Nothing happened. Everything is alright.

Rachel sighs.

RACHEL
Okay, then. I think the best thing to do right now is to go to sleep. Good night.

Rachel turns away, but Sara still has something to say:

SARA
Thank you!

RACHEL
For what?

SARA
For your care. It means a lot.

Rachel blushes. She smiles shortly and then goes to her room. Awkwardly closes the door.

Sara sits down on the couch, she’s groaning. She takes off her jacket, puts it down on the couch and pulls up her shirt. She has an open wound on the right side of her abdomen.

She’s BLEEDING.
