Doublehead gazes at Ridge.
The Ridge quickly raises his pistol and fires.
Doublehead is hit in the face under his eye. He falls back.
Don't move. This is council enforcement.
Sanders holds his weapons on the crowd.
Suddenly, Doublehead jumps up. He charges past a shocked Ridge and Sanders. Doublehead almost knocks them down. Sanders recovers and yells to Ridge.
I'll take care of this.
(looks at the crowd)
The Ridge runs after Doublehead.
Doublehead weakly runs to the small log house near the tavern and moves inside.
The Ridge sees Doublehead enter the house as he exits the
tavern. The Ridge walks methodically to the small house ignoring the boys. John and Talmidge are frozen in place, staring.
INT. SMALL HOUSE
Doublehead breathes hard as he looks around the house.
He sees blankets stacked on a small single bed.
Doublehead grabs the blankets and covers himself in a corner, to look like a pile of old blankets.
Ridge enters slowly and cautiously as he looks around the room. Ridge turns his back to the blankets and looks around the room. He suddenly turns with pistol in hand and fires six times into the blankets.
