NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK

A DIVE OF A FOOD JOINT

Detective Rowe, Timothy Collins and a black haired guy named Plink sit at a table outside, eating tacos.

Timothy holds a cigarette, and looks to be in some sort of a daze…

…meanwhile, Plink stuffs several tacos in his mouth, and sips at a giant ice cold coke

Detective Rowe watches in ahh, still in shock from the shooting

“So your real name isn’t Billy, it’s Timothy Collins…” she speaks to Timothy

“Yup…”

“And why are you telling me this now?”

“Probably the same reason you didn’t call in that shooting until after we had left the scene, and anonymously at that…”

She doesn’t reply… And instead looks at Plink who stops mid bite…

“And your name is Plink?” she questions the shadowy dark haired guy

“Yeah…” Plink replies and continues eating

“Why did you say we’re all going to die?” her attention turned back to Timothy

“Because we’re out numbered… Even with Plink and I here, we can’t stop what’s about to happen to this city…” he explains, and puts out his cigarette on the table

“What’s happening Timothy?” she questions

He looks at her, then stands… Plink follows in suit

The two make their way to his blue taxi, but Plink tosses a small explosive in the car, and it burns out the inside…

Plink points to a dark metal colored armored looking car, and Timothy joins him walking towards it

Detective Rowe stands, “Wait! Where are the two of you going?”

Plink and Timothy open the heavy metal doors, “Get out of the city Detective… Two thirds of your police force, and the government in general, are Shadowmen… And they’re about to crank it up in this town

She looks totally confused…

They get in the car…

VROOOOMM

The metal armored muscle car roars to a start, and takes off…

Leaving Detective Rowe in the dust.

NEW YORK CITY AIRPORT

NEW YORK

Timothy Collins leans against a telephone pole near the airport… Jets are taking off and landing behind him… Off to his left is his Taxi Driver Persona, Billy’s, sweet blue taxi… The engine is still running, and water is dripping off of it from its’ recent decent.

He lights a cigarette.

“So This Is It… Death.”

“God Knows I’m Not Going To Be Able To Keep Avoiding Them Like That…”

A brown sedan pulls up near by, and Detective Milly Rowe gets out of her car…

It starts to rain, and she grabs her umbrella, and walks towards him.

“Oh God…”

“Mr. Nordum?” she speaks, as he flicks his cigarette and makes his way towards his car.

“You’re going to die Detective… We’re all goina die,” he speaks as he opens his taxi door, the rain coming down upon him.

“Billy, hold on for just a minute, please…”

Billy pauses, his eyes glistening, but he really doesn’t want to… He can already see the three black sports cars lights in the distance slowly approaching.

“Ah #@# man!” she stands a few feet from him.

“We’re going to die Detective…” with this he grabs her arm, and tosses her into the passenger side, and tears off… The three cars follow him, but from  a distance.

Detective Rowe notes that he keeps looking in the mirror, and so looks back behind them.

“Who are they?”

Timothy looks at him with a squint,” Vaug’s Mercenaries…”

“Vaug? Terrence Vaug, the nightclub owner?”

“Yeah,” he lightly replies.

“But… What does he have to do with the killings?”

“Everything… But it doesn’t really matter because I’m not going to spend my nights avoiding these guys… It was good knowing you Detective,” with this he stops his car, gets out, and walks directly towards the three sports cars, which come to a halt, and turn off their lights… The rain begins to come down harder.

“COME ON OUT OF THERE MAN! YOU WANTA KILL ME, THEN KILL ME!” he yells.

All is silent save the rain…

Meanwhile Detective Rowe draws her gun in readiness, “What the hell is he doing.”

Suddenly all 6 of the 3 black cars doors open in sinc, and all 6 of the Beholder’s Mercenaries step out holding some serious Hyper-Un Rapid Fire guns.

“All too easy…” one of them speaks under his breath…

VOOMP VOOMP VOOMP

Suddenly three of the six Mercenaries take silent shots to the head, and fall over…

The other three dive into their cars, and tear off.

Timothy is left standing in the rain…

The three Mercenaries lay dead in the rain, blood flowing across the ground…

Detective Rowe jumps out of the car suddenly, pistol drawn…

“FREEZE!” she yells, only to see the three dead bodies, and Billy (Timothy) lighting another cigarette under his coat.

“What the hell happened?” she demanded.

Timothy looks over at her, taking one hit before the cigarette goes out…

“Birds in the trees…”

Standing some 50 feet away in the dark, under the rain, is a dark figure with a sniper canon at his side, and red glowing infra red goggles.

“Tyric…” Timothy speaks to the man in the shadows.

“Good to see you Dauber… Whose the broad.”

Episode VI – Tough Ride

New York City, New York – Evening

Billy is riding in his blue decked out taxi…

Trance Music blaring

“I Can’t Stop Thinking About The Beholder And His Goons”

He tears down the quieting streets of New York, crossing through time square…

Suddenly 3 sleek looking black sport cars flick on their lights from the side of the street, and begin to follow him one by one

“Now Maybe Julian Could Do Something About It… But I’m Not Julian Right Now… And His Business Is By Command, Not By Whim…”

Suddenly he notices the lights closing in on him in his rear view mirror.

“That Guy Is Driving Awful Close…”

He pulls over and waves em by… 1… 2… 3 identical black sports cars wiz by him, and pull over up ahead… Turning off their lights.

Billy just stares at them for a moment when

WHAM WHAM

A guy starts banging on his back window.

“Hey man, you open for service?” a stressed out man in a long brown coat calls out to him.

Billy stares at the cars ahead of them in the darkness, and lights up a cigarette…

“Sure,” he replies, and opens the door, the guy jumps in

“Thanks man… Airport.”

With this Billy tears out of the side spot, and drives past the three cars which sit in the dark.

“How you doin tonight,” he starts up a polite convo, as he looks into his rear view mirror again, and notes the three cars turning on their lights, and begin following him again.

“Not bad, running a bit late, truth is I’m not sure I’m going to make it to my flight, even though I was fortunate enough to find you…”

Suddenly Billy steps on it…

SCREECH

And the taxi takes off down the road…

The man in the backseat is tossled…

“Woe…” he speaks without thinking.

“Hold on…” Billy says, as he clicks on some nitros, and the car just takes off…

The three cars behind him seem to disappear.

Billy smiles, and flicks the cigarette out the window… When

The lights start to appear behind him again.

“Ah shit…” he speaks and tears around a corner.

“Woe!” the man is thrown around the back seat.

Billy then turns on auto pilot, and draws two guns from his side, and sticks himself outside his window, and lets off many gun shots.

BLAM BLAM BLAM

The cars take the hits, but are unmarked….

“Shit…” Billy says again, and slides back in.

“Uh…” the man in the back starts to speak.

“Don’t worry buddy, we’ll get you there…”

Suddenly Billy heads towards a dock, as if he’s going to drive right off…

“Ahhhh!” the man in the back of the car yells.

Billy half smiles and flies off the dock, landing into the ocean, submersing.

The three cars tear to a halt, and slowly start to drive off.

Meanwhile, under the water, Billy flicks a switch, and the wheels go up under the car, making it into a bit of a submarine.

He flicks on the inside lights, and hands the man a cup of coffee.

“A bit of a shortcut.”

EPISODE V – FLASHBACK

LONG ISLAND, NY

JULY 5TH 2013, SOMETIME AFTER MIDNIGHT

A black Plymouth tears down the road, swaying in and out of its lane, and the oncoming traffic.

“Timothy man, you’re a maniac!” yells one of the four guys, this one in the backseat.

Timothy smirks.

LATER

Timothy drives the car up onto his parents lawn, destroying it… Gets out of the vehicle, drunkly setting the alarm.

HONK HONK

He starts to go through his keys as he trips over a lawn gnome, and almost falls.

When he reaches the front door, he notices it’s slightly open.

His heart stops.

He slowly opens the door…

“Elise?” he calls.

But there is no sound.

After making his way through the house, he finally reaches his sister’s bedroom… He’d saved it for last out of fear.

“Elise? This isn’t funny.”

He staggers towards the door, and slowly swings it open…

What he sees next he can not believe…

He falls to his knees, tears flooding from his eyes…

“ELISE!!!”

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK

TIMOTHY COLLIN’S HIGHRISE APARTMENT

Timothy wakes up screaming…

“NOOOOOO!!!”

He’s sweating profusely, as he quickly grabs his chest, and peers towards the window looking over the city.

Rain splashes hardly against the window, with lightning, and thunder making its’ presence known…

KRACKOOM!!

THE KITCHEN

Timothy steps into his kitchen, wearing a long white satin robe, and black satin pants.

“The nightmares never end…”

He grabs a seltzer water, and sits at his bar stool counter.

“Hello Julian…” a voice comes from behind him.

“The mercenaries… I am a fool.”

EPISODE IV – TIME

A NEW YORK HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM

Detective Milly Rowe is looking at 6 dead bodies.

She has medium brown hair, brown eyes and fair skin.

“Bullet holes to the head and chest… Two shots each…” she speaks to the doctor standing next to her.

“Execution style…” speaks Timothy under his breath as he stands nearby checking on a different patient.

“Vaug’s goons did this.”

Detective Rowe catches wind of what he says as he wanders off.

“Who was that?” she asks the doctor with her.

“Who that… That’s just Billy… He’s an Intern… Don’t let him bug you none… He’s not exactly a people person.”

LATER OUTSIDE THE HOSPITAL

Timothy exits the building, after finishing work.

“Billy…” a woman’s voice comes from around the corner.

It’s Detective Rowe.

“Yes?” Timothy replies.

She sticks out her hand, “My name is Detective Milly Rowe, NYPD.”

He just looks at her hand, “Right… So?”

She drops her hand, “Mr. Tray… I do believe I could use your help on this case.”

Timothy appears stunned.

“Since when does a NYPD Detective need anyone, other than their cohort’s help…” he states more than asks.

“Since now,” she replies.

NYPD HEADQUARTERS

Timothy sits at a table across from Detective Rowe.

“You said execution style…”

“I’ve watched my share of t.v. and movies… Seems pretty obvious…” he peers around the department through the surrounding windows, “Still not sure why I’m here.”

“You weren’t taken aback with this Mr. Tray… You were enthralled… I could see it.”

With this Timothy takes out a cigarette… She lights it.

“Billy…” he takes a deep hit, “you can call me Billy.”

“Alright Billy.”

“So what… I’m a psycho? A sociopath… What’s your point.”

“I don’t think you’re a sociopath Billy… I think you’re not surprised this happened.”

He stares at her blankly.

“I should probably talk to a lawyer or somethen…”

“I’m not after you Billy… Frankly I could care less about your past dealings… In fact… I wouldn’t care if your pockets were laced with coke. What I care about is the 6… Count them 6 local business men that landed in your morgue. Six men who worked their hands to the bone so they could provide for their families. I looked these guys up… These aren’t criminals… They’re good men.” she finishes.

“There’s specs of yellow floating around in those crystal brown eyes of hers.”

Timothy suddenly feels uncomfortable.

“Not wanting to feel… I can’t afford to feel… Not now… I’m too close.”

He stands.

“Is that all?”

There’s an awkward silence.

“Yes.” she finally replies, not looking at Timothy.

He leaves.

As he walks through the Police Department he is caught up in thought…

“If she ends up being the next one in the morgue… I will be pist.”

He tears up.

“I thought you couldn’t feel… No more… Damn human weakness.”

EPISODE 2 – THE LISTENER

“I am Billy Nordum… An Intern at a New York hospital”

“I am Rex Daro… A taxi driver”

“I am Julian Geer”

“I am Timothy Collins…”

“And I am a Listener.”

CHAPTER III – JULIAN GEER

Deep beneath the city of New York, an underground party takes place…

Candles… Drugs… Wine… Woman… And… Young men?

A long, dark haired man, in a long gold jacket, sits in a red velvet and dark wood chair, surrounded by 6 to 8 under aged guys, who are responding to his every whim.

Julian Geer approaches, wearing a very white and black suit.

“Agent Julian Geer… At last we meet,” speaks the man known as The Beholder.

“At last,” replies Julian.

“I thought you’d be older,” speaks The Beholder as one of the young men feeds him a Monticello Cherry.

The young men are all wearing white, and have silver glittery makeup on.

They scope out Julian, but are not impressed.

Save one who looks particularity scared… Julian takes note.

“They always do… Say… Are these guys here willingly?”

The Beholder seems a bit taken off guard by this remark.

“HaHaHa…” The Beholder claps his hands, and the young men all leave… At the same time the one that had been looking at Julian, looked back at him, sweating…. Desperate…

The Beholder points at a near by chair, “Sit…”

Julian takes one last look at the young man, and then takes the seat.

“You’ve taken a liking to one of them… You but say the word, and I–“

“I’m alright,” Julian cuts him off before he finishes.

“Very well… So tell me Julian Geer… To what do I owe the honor?”

“Nice collection of young men you got there…”

“You’re not too bad yourself… Still… You’re a little too old for my taste,” The Beholder looks to be in his 40’s.

“I won’t let you destroy the city Vaug…” Julian suddenly says, as he waves away a waitress.

“HaHa… So you know who I am then.”

“I know you’re Vaug Hendrichs… I know you go by The Beholder,” replies Julian

“Who told you I was going to destroy the city?

“A little voice inside my head…” replies Julian.

The Beholder looks to be losing his patience.

“Voices eh… You should take something for that.”

“I’ve already had all that I can take… With this place,” Julian replies, prodding him on.

The Beholder is not impressed.

“Clever… But I think that it’s time that you go…” The Beholder says, and …

SMACK SMACK

…he claps his hands loudly.

“Out of sight… Does not mean… Out of mind,” Julian spats out as two large security guards in white suits lift Julian from his chair.

“Remove him,” The Beholder simply states, no longer looking at Julian…

SMACK SMACK

…he smacks his hand together again, and the young men return, and surround him.

Julian is dragged on his heals out of the party chamber.

JULIAN’S HIGHRISE APARTMENT BALCONY

He lights a cigarette and looks over the city… It’s started to rain.

“People die on this planet every day…”

“But it is not their choice…”

“Vaug singed his own death warrent tonight…”

“Julian won’t let him too off his leash…”

“But Vaug knows that… Which means…”

THE CITY DOCKS

Six men in black suits, with blood red shirts, step off a boat.

“Mercenaries…”

EPISODE I

“My name is Timothy Collins…”

“And I’m a Listener…”

Episode II

The Listener

A taxi cab tears down the road in the middle of New York City

In the back of the cab, an older couple argues

Driving, is the white haired, 23 year old Timothy Collins

“Today’s not a good day…”

“Today’s one of those days where I want to find a ravine, and drive right off into it, me jumping out, and leaving this couple in it…”

“Yeah today’s one of those days.”

“HEY KID, WE GOINA BE THERE ANYTIME SOON? OR ARE YOU TAKEN THE SCENIC ROUTE TO UP YOUR FARE…”

SCREEECHHHH

Suddenly Timothy pulls over, and brings the cab to a dead stop.

“Get out,” he says without demonstrating any remorse.

“What?” the guy in back replies

Timothy turns around, lights a cigarette, and flicks it at the couple, “I said get out!”

The couple shaken up, jumps out of the car, and as the guy reaches into his wallet to pay, Timothy has already torn down the road in his blue taxi… The Pharaoh as he calls it… One of a kind.

“As a cab driver, I go by the name Rex… All these identities… What’s the point.”

Ah yeah I remember… Sanity… I mean, who can really take being the same person every single day, in and out… No wonder so many people get lost in t.v…. They need an escape from being whoever they are all the friggen time… Not me, I just ride out 3 identities…”

Timothy pulls up to a highrise apartment building, scopes it out a bit, then gets out of his cab.

IN AN ELEVATOR

Timothy rides to the 22nd floor, where he gets out, and uses a card key to access his room.

CLICK

“Home…”

He tosses his long black trench coat onto the couch.

“Now home I like…”

He checks his messages.

 He then jumps over the couch, picks up the remote, and turns on the t.v.

“You didn’t really think I never watched t.v., did yah… But I don’t watch it for the same reasons…”

He flips it to the news.

“Car wrecks, shootings, political bullshit… Now that’s entertainment.”

Suddenly his face goes blank, and he drops the remote on the floor, and like being in a trance heads into his bedroom, leaving the news blaring in the background.

“Rex’s day is over… But Billy’s is just beginning.”

He goes into his closet and pulls out a pair of medical scrubs for his intern job…

RING RING

Suddenly he freezes, and turns to look at the cell phone sitting on the mantle by his bead.

RING RING

He tosses the scrubs on the bed and picks up the phone

“Hello…”

“Looks like Billy’s calling in sick… It’s Julian’s time.”

And Full of light

You should hold them till you die

Love them…

Your eyes let me know straight away…

Held you close

Hope you stayed…

When you came into my life

I woke straight up…

From a clouded rain

When you shared with me the night…

It’s then I knew…

You could be mine

CHAPTER ONE – TIMOTHY COLLINS

New York City – New York

“My name is Timothy Collins…”

A sleek looking male, in a black trench coat, with white stylish hair, steps into a Starbucks

“And I’m a Listener…”

Inside there are a table of young girls laughing, Timothy himself is 23

He orders a hot tea, and makes his way out the door as quickly as he came in

The girls hardly get a glimpse of him, but seem to feel him as he walks by

They continue laughing and chatting

“There are three secrets that I will never tell anyone…”

“One would get me killed… And I’m not quite ready yet…”

“And one would send me to prison for 20 years.”

“The other would destroy anyone I’ve cared about in my life…”

“Of course at the moment… There are none.”

He enters a local hospital Emergency Room, and makes his way into the doctor and nurses locker room

“One of my identities is that of an Intern at an Emergency Room…”

“But no one truly knows who I am.”

“And I prefer it that way.”

“Evening Billy, how goes it,” speaks  a different Intern looking Timothy’s way

Timothy looks over at him, but doesn’t reply

“I haven’t decided yet…”

“If I’m going to interact with people.”

Timothy gets up after putting on his Intern attire, and passes right by the other Intern

“Or if I”m going to change this place…”

LATER THAT EVENING

Timothy has finished his shift and is walking down the sidewalk

Suddenly he walks into traffic

“Sometimes I walk directly in front of taxis…”

A taxi headed right towards him screeches to a halt, “HEY BUDDY, HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND!”

Timothy goes back to the sidewalk, and continues on his way

“I like to keep them sharp…”

“They need to be sharp.”

“They are the stumbling feet of New York.”

“They are motion…”
