EXT. SLEEPY HOLLOW FOREST --NIGHT
Jonathan runs past, gripping his bow. It's QUIET... till HOOFBEATS
are HEARD in pursuit.
Trees are silhouetted against the sky. As HOOFBEATS get LOUDER,
branches bend like arms and fingers yearning to touch. As HOOFBEATS
ROAR PAST, the trees relax.
FURTHER ON, Jonathan runs. WIND begins to SLOW.
BEHIND, in motion, WE SEE Daredevil's snorting visage; eyes lizard-like,
with vertical slits literally aglow.
The Horseman's hand yanks a wooden WAR HAMMER from a saddle mount.
(No clear view of the Horseman.)
HORSEMAN'S P.O.V.: closing in on Jonathan.
Jonathan is overtaken. The Horseman swings the hammer -- WHOOMP
- sends Jonathan sprawling.
HOOFBEATS FADE. Jonathan tries to get up, but pain shoots through
him. He crawls to retrieve his bow.
Against a tree, he takes an arrow from his shoulder quiver and readies it.
Waiting. A metal TAPPING is HEARD O.S. CLINK... CLINK... CLINK.
A HORSE SNORTS.
Jonathan pulls the bow taut, pained, lips bloody.
Elsewhere, Daredevil approaches slow. The Horseman taps his sword
on his spur, CLINK... CLINK... CLINK...
Foliage moves as the Horseman's form pushes through.
Jonathan releases -- the arrow WHISTLES.
THWACK! -- Imbeds in the Horseman's chest.
CLINK... CLINK... CLINK... Jonathan cries out, crawling away desperately.
Crawling through underbrush, over roots and rocks. CLINK... CLINK...
CLINK... Jonathan gives up, spent, face to the dirt. He closes
CLINKING STOPS. Daredevil halts astride Jonathan; two legs on
each side of Jonathan's body.
