Mitosis – Act 1, Scene 24

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, NATHAN’S ROOM – EVENING

The hotel receptionist opens the door and Daniel rushes into the small room. Lucas and Gabriel enter behind him, the hotel receptionist stays in the doorway. Daniel scans the room, he opens draws, looks under the sheets, then enters the bathroom. He cries out and walks back in holding a phone.

DANIEL
It’s Nathan’s phone, he left it behind. Why would he leave his phone behind? Unless.

He looks up and Gabriel and Lucas in horror.

DANIEL (CONT’D)
I knew it, he’s in trouble. I, I have to find him.

Gabriel and Lucas share a look and Lucas pulls out his phone and exits the room to make a call. Gabriel looks back at Daniel and smiles.

GABRIEL
We will help you find your brother.

DANIEL
I appreciate that, you guys are quite the gentleman. But how are we going to find him? He could be anywhere.

Daniel sits back on the bed and puts his head in his hands.

DANIEL (CONT’D)
I’m too tired for this. Where are you Nathan?

GABRIEL
Maybe you should get some sleep you can help us find him in the morning.

Daniel looks around the room.

DANIEL
Well I guess I could stay here. I’ll need the maid to clean it up first of course.

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
I’m sorry sir but we are fully booked, in fact their are people waiting for this room right now.

DANIEL
Fully booked? How is this place fully booked?

HOTEL RECEPTIONIST
Carnival starts tomorrow, I don’t think there would be a hotel in the city that wouldn’t be fully booked.

GABRIEL
I think I might know of one.
