“Where to now.” Eric asked as he got into the back seat of the waiting car and fastened his seat belt. Glancing at his carry-on luggage that was stored on the seat next to him, he was tempted to pull out his electric razor. Pulling on the beard he was still unaccustomed to he said, “I can’t wait to take a proper shower and shave this shit off my face.”
“The facial hair gives you character Eric. I think it’s rather becoming. You should think about keeping it. Just get it groomed like Mark here.” Said the man in the front passenger seat referring to the driver, Mark Wayland. Mark was just as handsome as Eric and could pass for his twin brother as he too sported dirty blonde long hair, mustache and a beard.
“This coming from a man that has no facial hair and shaves his head?” Eric snickered at the older man.
“Touché.” The man answered rubbing his clean-shaven head and face. He couldn’t be bothered with keeping up with the grooming required for the latest hairstyles. All he could accomplish was peach fuzz whenever he tried to grow facial hair so it suited him to just shave it off.
“Besides, the whole idea of growing it was a disguise to look like Mark so we could create doubt. What would be point of keeping it?” Eric asked as he peered forward and inspected his scruffy appearance in the car’s rear view mirror. Mark smirked when he caught his friend’s eye in the reflection. Having Eric grow the beard and long hair to resemble his had been Mark’s idea. He was also responsible for getting the false ID in the name Richard Kimble. He was a fan of the old TV show the Fugitive and thought it humorous to use the name of the main character. When Eric saw the passport and driver’s license he wasn’t amused, but by then it was too late to make changes. The documents had already been delivered and paid for.
“We’re headed to the hotel now. You can get cleaned up and shave if you want to, but I need you to stay out of sight Eric. The last thing we want is for someone from the movie set to recognize you.” The man admonished his partner in crime.
