sam and willow 17: meet willow

Willow, 20-something, flees the apartment she shares with her meth-head boyfriend when he smacks her around. They're in the valley, like Chatsworth or Van Nuys, and she scrams with what she can stuff into a backpack, able to do that when she locks a door on his pursuit. She grabs his nine from its spot and climbs out the window, catches a bus into downtown, makes a phone call. Hey, it's your cousin.


Union Station. Willow purchasing a one-way to Maricopa, Arizona, taking peeks over her shoulder as she does so.


On the train. Rolling out of the station. Conductor calls out some of the stops ahead. Palm Springs, Yuma, Maricopa, Tucson, Deming, El Paso. Ticket taker offers an ice pack for Willow's swollen eye.


Sunrise, Maricopa Amtrak station. Willow getting off the train, walking away. The train leaves the station.
