Howard Sides

Hisao is bleeding on the back, obviously in agony but still very lucid and responsive. The driver is silent, and focused. His features can only be seen in the rear-view mirror.
Maurice, where are you taking me?
[Pause] Hey, where the fuck are we going? Larry must’ve called, what did he say?
Now you know that guy doesn’t talk,
don’t you?
The driver stays silent, as Hisao turns his head he sees a guy, one of the robbers, sitting next to him. HOWARD is wearing a suit, but has a large gaping wound on his chest.
It is very bloody, seemingly with a hole where his heart should be, but it is not bleeding nor does he look like he’s in pain. He is smoking a cigarette, and the smoke comes out of the wound.
HISAO Howard?! How did you-
Shut the fuck up. You left me for
dead man, that’s how. I though you were a man of honor. Oh, Hisao, the Yakuza badass... He’s honorable. Well fuck you! You ain’t shit.
No... but you were dead, I saw you.
How are you breathing? You know I don’t leave friends behind, I wouldn’t if I knew...
Oh you knew you shit, but you don’t
want to admit it. Larry screwed us... He’s a traitor, and you’re his bitch.
Shut up! I’m not anyone’s bitch, I
always finish the job. You don’t become a member of-
Yakuza? The yamaguchi gummy-
whatever? Like I give I flying fuck. For all I know you left them too, why else would you be in the US.
I had to leave, I-
I don’t care. I just wanted to call
you a bitch one more time, bitch. I’m out-a here.
