How about it, Paden? You want the job?
Paden, considering, glances at the still swinging doors.
I see you’re an understanding boss.
Cobb chuckles, picks up Paden’s coffee cup, and takes a sip.
Nothing like that will happen between us.
Maybe we ought to ask Stella.
He turns toward her. She likes the idea.
You’d be welcome.
She is smiling at him warmly when suddenly her eyes shift, her expression changes, and she screams —
No, Kelly! He’ll kill you!
Cobb is already in motion. He spins, drawing his gun, and fires repeatedly at the swinging doors. Kelly has been aiming
over them and is blasted back into the street as the slats splinter. Cobb holsters his gun. The coffee cup is still in
his other hand. He takes a final sip, puts the cup down, and licks a spilled drop off his thumb.
Stella is repulsed. Cobb fixes her with a malevolent look, and his tone is icy —
Stella – thanks for warning me.
Stella rushes out to the street, as Emmett and Paden get up. Emmett and Cobb are very close for one moment.
Didn’t have much choice.
They go out through the gathering crowd.
EXT. MAIN STREET – DAY
Down the street a stagecoach is rolling into town.
