Mitosis – Act 1, Scene 23

This scene is part of the first draft of a screenplay I’ve written as part of my Masters. See past days to catch up on the rest of the story. Happy reading.

INT. HOTEL BANDEIRANTES – EVENING

Daniel enters a rundown, low cost, hotel, with Lucas and Gabriel behind him. He gleefully approaches the HOTEL RECEPTIONIST, a mid 30’s man dressed neatly who’s beginning to bald.

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
Mr. Reeves, you’re back already. What can I do for you?

DANIEL
(happily)
Hello, I’m actually not the Mr. Reeves you think I am. Nathan is staying here, I’m his brother Daniel. Don’t worry it happens all the time. But I was hoping to get the number to Nathan’s room and a key of possible. I’m hoping to surprise him.

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
I’m sorry, I am confused.

DANIEL
Oh, okay, I understand. You see we’re twins, so what that means is that we’re brothers that were both born at the same time and came from the same egg, that’s why we look alike. During fertilization-

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
No, no I understand what twins are, but your brother, he checked out this morning.

Daniels face turns to one of horror.

DANIEL
He what? What do you mean he checked out?

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
He left this morning, I believe he was travelling on to somewhere else.

DANIEL
Where? Where was he going?

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
I’m sorry, I don’t know he did not tell me.

DANIEL
No, you have to know, did he say anything?

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
Nothing I can recall, like I said he and a young lady left this morning.

Lucas slams his fist down on the counter.

LUCAS
Tell us where they went.

Daniel turns to Lucas.

DANIEL
Lucas, I appreciate your enthusiasm, and no one wants to find Nathan more that me, but I will handle this.

Daniel slams his fist down on the counter in a much less intimidating manner.

DANIEL (CONT’D)
Tell us where he went.

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
I told you I don’t know. You can check his room if you want. I don’t think it’s been cleaned yet.

The hotel receptionist turns and grabs a key from behind him.
