The Scales of Justice

[Righty McStabbins and John Notto can be seen sitting in the lobby at the Hotel that they are calling home for the time being.]

Righty: “So you drink because the love of your life left you?”

[John takes a sip from his bottle.]

John: “Nope, my turn.”

[John passes the bottle to Righty.]

John: “Where you magically conceived?”

[Right takes a sip from the bottle.]

Righty: “No by your Mother!”

[John just stares blankly at Righty and grabs the bottle and takes a huge gulp.]

Righty: “Calm down Mate, I’m just busting your hump. Save some for me.”

John: “I didn’t know my Mother or my Father. Or at least my biological ones. Sometimes I think about them…. sometimes I’ll think about what I would ask them if they were in front of me. I’m not angry with them…’

[John catches himself and stops. He just continues to look down.]

Righty: “Listen we all have questions that don’t have answers. I’m looking for my sister and have zero leads but that won’t stop me from trying my hardest to find her. If you want answers go get them.”

[Righty stands up.]

Righty: “But you won’t find any answers in that bottle.”

[Righty walks out leaving John to ponder what he told him.]*

Deep truths.

Ha, cool little drama. I like the characterization element in the last line. Righty seems to know his troubles exist in drinking, but can’t stop himself.

You earned adventure log xp.
