Inevitable (Short Script)

FADE IN:

INT: BEDROOM – MORNING

Brandon a laying in a ball under the blankets with sun rays shining through the window and onto the blue comforter.

The brass door knob slightly jiggles as the door begins to crack open, an older man peaks his head in and stares at Brandon.

Dad
Brandon, Brandon… Son wake up.

Brandon trying to resist the harsh reality of waking up.

Dad
Brandon!

Brandon quickly raises out of bed.

Brandon
WHAT!

Anger pulsing through his face, his eyes focused in a stare.

Brandon
WHAT THE FUCK MAN, I’M TRYING TO SLEEP DAMN IT!!!

The look of hurt falling over the Father’s face as he listens to the cruel tone in his son’s voice.

Dad
Look I’ am sorry, I just haven’t seen you in awhile because of work…

Tears build up in the Father’s eyes.

Dad
… I just wanted to take you to breakfast, but never mind. Sorry to bother you.

His Father hold his head down in pain as tears slowly stream down his face.

The door eases shut as Brandon stares off in shame.

He lay’s down while closing his eyes and rolls over facing the wall.

The sun rays slowly shine from off the blanket to the floor.

An alarm clock sounds off, Brandon rolls over toward the nightstand to press the button on the alarm clock to turn it off.

Brandon raises up with messy morning hair and sits up on the side of the bead while staring at floor with a blank expression.

Brandon lets out a yawn and gets up from the bed then slides his house shoes on.

He slowly shuffles his feet across the floor rubbing his eyes as he turns the knob on his door.

Brandon opens the door and sees legs laying on the floor, his eyes follow up the black pants and up the torso to the pale face of his father.

He falls to the floor and slightly nuges his father.

Brandon
Dad…

Brandon nudges his father harder.

… DAD GET UP (NUDGES) DADDY!

Tears fall from his eyes has he brushes his hand through his fathers hair.

Brandon
DAD PLEASE, GET UP!

Brandon’s face numbed in sadness as he realizes his fathers not getting up

Brandon
I’m sorry daddy.

He chokes on his tears as he kisses his Father’s forehead.

Brandon
I’m so sorry.

He lays his head on his Dad’s chest and sob’s.

(END OF DREAM)

The sounds of an alarm clock begin to sound.

BEDROOM

Brandon eyes burst open then hit’s the snooze button.

Brandon sits up on the side of his bed, the door slowly cracks open his Father sticks his head in.

Dad
Hey son, you want to go get something to eat?

Brandon raises his head staring at his Father as a smile eases on his face.

Brandon
Yea… that sounds great, let me get ready.

He gets up and hugs his dad.

Brandon
I love you.

Fathers laughing pats his son on the back.

Dad
Ok, ok I love you too. Now go take a shower so we can get something to eat.

Brandon kisses him on the cheek.

BATHROOM.

Brandon closes the bathroom door and looks to the ceiling with a grin.

Brandon
(WHISPERS)
Thank you God.

Brandon washing soap off him in the shower then turns the water off.

He pulls the shower curtain back and grabs a towel from off the self.

HALLWAY.

Brandon
(O.S)
Alright lets go.

Brandon opens the door an stands at a halt as pain creeps onto his face while he stares down at the floor.

His father laying on the floor lifeless.

Tears start to build up in his eyes.

Brandon
No… No, no, no.

Brandon falls to his father’s side and puts his Dad’s head in his lap with his back leaning on the wall. Brandon running his father’s hair.

Brandon
Why God(SOBS) WHY!!!

Brandon’s head falls back on the wall, looking at the ceiling as tears stream down his face.

FADE OUT.
