DEXTER

When I got here. They were acting tough, so I sliced ’em.

WARDEN JOSHUA

So... one of you killed two inmates, huh? I wanna know who did it. And let me say, the one who is convicted is getting twenty five to life! And that’s being nice. The judge might be having a bad day, if you catch my drift.

He walks to Jake.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

So, does any body know who did it?

JAKE

I don’t know nothing!

WARDEN JOSHUA

I bet you don’t.

He walks to Sam.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

How ’bout you? Who did this?

Sam looks at him, smirks, and looks back to the wall.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

You ain’t got nothing to say either, huh?

He walks to Dexter.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

How about you? You just got here. You the new ring leader? You trouble?

Dexter’s silent.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

Nothing to say? Ok.

He backs away from Dexter.

WARDEN JOSHUA(CONT’D)

We’re going to leave ya’ in here for awhile. When we come back, somebody better start talking!

He, and the prison guards exit.

DEXTER

Y’all keep y’all mouths shut, you understand?

JAKE

I done had ya back, too much, as it is. I’m not letting them put this on me.

DEXTER

They ain’t going to do that. As long as no one talks, we’ll be all right. Keep ya’ mouths shut. Or I will kill y’all! Don’t think just ’cause I’m locked in another room, I can’t get to you.

JAKE

Man, you expect me to keep quiet? And take on a 25+ bid? Hell no, I ain’t doing that, man!

DEXTER

Listen to me. I was able to take out your little, ”buddies,” back in the cell. Best believe, if I want you, I can get you.

The door can be heard opening.

DEXTER(CONT’D)

Make the right decision.

Warden Joshua stands, facing Jake, Dexter, and Sam.

WARDEN JOSHUA

So. Does anybody wanna talk?

DEXTER

I ain’t got nothing to say.

SAM

You barking up the wrong tree.

JAKE

...I ain’t do it! Dexter did.

WARDEN JOSHUA

Ok. Sam, Jake, ya’ can go back to y’all cell.

DEXTER

Wait! Sam helped me.

WARDEN JOSHUA

Is this true, Sam?

DEXTER

(Low toned)

Remember what I said, Sam.

SAM

...Yeah. I helped.

WARDEN JOSHUA

Ok. Jake, you can go to ya cell.
