EXT. MOSCOW SQUARE – DAY

A pretty young woman is seen walking down the sidewalk. She is dressed in a tan trench coat with dark glasses on, and her hair is worn down with half clipped up. As she walks she lifts her hand toward her ear, and covers it. Suddenly a voice is heard off camera.

UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O.)
Adalet don’t do anything crazy while you are there.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN
Quit worrying so much, Feltz. I got this under control.
She continues to walk down the sidewalk with a smirk. Her gait is steady, sensual, and direct.

UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O.)
Don’t play hero, Lettie. Just do your job.
The woman shakes her head and proceeds to walk off across the courtyard of Moscow Square flicking off the earpiece her hand rested on.
DISSOLVE TO:
INT. GRAND HOTEL LOBBY – DAY
The young woman is seen entering the revolving doors of a large grandeur hotel. She walks past the reception desk, and proceeds straight to the elevators. Once at the elevators she walks straight into one as the door is timed to open right at the moment she arrives.
DISSOLVE TO:
INT. HOTEL CORRIDOR – DAY
The young woman is seen exiting the elevators, and quickly advancing down the hallway until she reaches door 704, on the right side of the hall. She pulls out a key card, and slides it down the lock. The door lights shift from red to green, and a beeping sound is heard. She pushed the door open, and walks into the hotel room.
She proceeds to sit down at an already open Macbook computer. The screen has an official CIA screen saver flashing across it. Suddenly a scratchy white noise fills her ears.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O)
Did you meet with the buyer?
The young woman shifts in her chair, and shrugs her jacket off revealing a credentialed badge with her name, and occupation that reads: “SPECIAL AGENT ADALET KYTX, CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY.” She lifts her hand to remove her earpiece but reconsiders when another voice fills her ears.c
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE TWO
(V.O)
Yes, I met with the buyer.
The young woman now recognized as Adalet Kytx leans back in her chair, and continues to listen to the conversation.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O)
What time will the meeting trade take place?
Adalet’s eyebrows perk as she listens, and suddenly it dawns on her that she recognizes the first voice.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE TWO
(V.O)
The location will be given in person. The buyer would like the extra security of a face to face meeting with you.
Adalet frowns, she realizes she recognizes the second voice two but continues to listen closely.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O)
Where do you want to meet then?
Adalet grimaces, and beings to shake her head, but thinks to press the button on her earpiece that records conversations.
ADALET
There has to be something wrong here.
She continues to listen with unease as the recorder begins to record.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
The virus is located in Washington right now, correct? If so the buyer would like to meet in the Capitol. He wishes to see the product in action before completing the transaction.
Adalet bites her lower lip, a nd pulls her chair forward. She begins typing in her CIA username and password which read: “USER: SpcAAAK PASSWORD: Ravenkytx009.” The screen flashes, and lights up bringing up her log-in homepage tools. She types in a name which read: “SPECIAL AGENT JONATHAN KILLEEN.”
ADALET
Where are you on assignment at now, Jonny boy?
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O)
Yes, it did you explain to him what type of virus this is? The scientists will not want to do a sample viewing. It’s far too dangerous. We are talking about Ebola that is three times deadlier than the original strain. One does not just give screenings.
Adalet’s jaw falls open, and she stares at the screen in shock. At the same moment a Agent file on Jonathan Killeen appears on her screen.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE TWO
(V.O)
How did I know you were going to say that? I told them the same, but they still want a face to face meeting.
Adalet keeps shaking her head, and begins to scroll down the screen taking in as much information about Killeen as she can.
UNKNOWN MALE VOICE
(V.O)
Just take care of it, Killeen. I will go the meeting. Let me know when it is arranged.
Adalet’s draws her hand up to her forehead, and closes her eyes with a huff.
SPECIAL AGENT KILLEEN
(V.O)
Will do, sir. How is Lettie doing on the assignment?

SPECIAL AGENT FELTZ
(V.O)
Let’s not discuss Adalet. In fact let’s not discuss any more names. Contact me when the meeting is arranged. Got it.
SPECIAL AGENT KILLEEN
(V.O)
Yes, I got it, sir.
SPECIAL AGENT FELTZ
(V.O)
Good.
A static sound fills Adalet’s ears again, and she begins to shake her head vigorously.
ADALET
This has got to be wrong. Somehow, no, this has got to be wrong.
She lifts her head and begins to type Feltz’s name in the system search bar which read: “DEPARTMENT HEAD SPECIAL AGENT LUCAS FELTZ.” Suddenly Agent Feltz’s file pops up, and Adalet begins scanning through the information. Seconds later she closes the computer, and pushes her chair back.
ADALET (CONT’D)
Time to do some more research, but I think the next departure to London sounds pretty enticing.
Adalet crosses over to the dresser, and grabs a gun out of the top drawer. She places it at the small of her back, and grabs her jacket before proceeding out the door.
CUT TO:
EXT. LANDING PAD MOSCOW AIPORT – LATER
Adalet is seen walking across the landing pad towards a black helicopter. Her hair is dancing to and fro from the speed of the whipping blades. She pauses for a second looking back at the landscape behind her. Then she turns around and walks back to the chopper to climb inside. The chopper lifts off, and Adalet watches the forest disappear as they climb higher into the sky.
CUT TO:
INT. ADALET’S HOME, WASHINGTON, DC – EVENING – LATER
Adalet is seen walking into a large one story house. There are no lights on, and shots are heard. Adalet tumbles to the ground to keep from being shot. She crawls on her knees, and reaches behind her for the gun.
ADALET
I’m a special agent with the CIA, and I command you to cease fire now!
Adalet steadies herself, and grips the gun firmly between her palms.
UNKNOWN SHOOTER
What are you doing here, and commanding us?
The unknown man has a raw Russian accent, and Adalet realizes that there must have been ulterior motives for him to be in her house.
ADALET
I do not want to have to shoot you. Please drop your weapons, and put your hands where I can see them. Now!
The man hesitates, and chuckles.
UNKNOWN SHOOTER
I think you are on the losing side here, woman. I don’t know what you think you are going to do to me with that little body, and wimpy gun of yours.
Adalet narrows her eyes. The statement only increases her anger.
ADALET
I said put your fucking weapon down, and your hands where I can see them, now!
She does not wait for another answer, but begins unloading lead straight into his chest.
The shooter falls to the ground, blood spurting from his lips, but not before a stray bullet is fired off at Adalet. Adalet rolls to the side, barely missing the bullet, and scampers to her feet. She darts behind a wall, and slides her hand down to her pocket to grab a magazine clip. Quickly she jams it into the gun, and peers back around the corner. The coast appears clear, and Adalet darts back across the living room.
