Your hero is at a bar. It’s a rough bar and the clientele is primarily men. A woman runs into the bar. She’s out of breath and clearly in distress. The men in the bar take notice of her almost immediately. They begin to eye her, she’s clearly vulnerable. She asks for help.
Someone is trying to kill her. She just needs to lay low for a few minutes until it’s safe. It’s clear to your hero that she’s not safe inside the bar but he keeps quiet. A tall, sinister man enters the bar. The woman shrieks. The man grabs her arm and begins to pull her out. Your hero stands up.
What does he do? What does he say? What happens and why is the woman running from this man? Who is he and does he really want to kill her.
