Fade In…

« Luke » The text from Danny comes late. It's a few minutes before midnight.
« lUKE its danny » Yes, he has forgotten that the phone tells you who is messaging.
« my dad knew about king kong »

*

It takes Luke a minute to respond, having been roused from sleep on his night off from the bar.

«Like. The giant monkey?» He rolls over in bed, shielding the light from his phone from waking Jessica, as he toggles the sound off from incoming messages. «He read you some screwed up bedtime stories.»

*

Danny texts:

« what? »
The dot dot dot moves. Pauses. Moves again. Moves.
« oh »
« autocorrect »
« kung fun »
« come long »
« K U N L U N »

*

Luke texts:

«I think I liked King Kong better.»
«Wait. What does this mean?»

*

Danny texts:

« don't know »
« Found a journal. All these notes. Dad was looking for the city. Maybe found it. »
« Can't tell. Handwriting bad. »

*

Luke texts:

«Was that why you guys were on the plane?»

*

Danny texts:

« don't know. seems like it has to be right »
« sorry. had drinks. Started out with pictures »
« Boxes of dad's stuff »

*

Luke texts:

«You were drinking pictures?»
«You okay, man?»

*

Danny texts:

« Luke what if the plane crash wasn't an accident »
« What if my dad got too close »

*

Luke texts:

«Then I think it's high time we got you some answers.»

*

Danny texts:

« Gotta look at the papers. Find some leads. Find out what dad was looking for. »

*

Luke texts:

«Good thing you've got the right friends. We'd all lay down our lives for you.»

*

Danny texts:

« I don't want that, Luke. I want everyone to b »
The message cuts off and no other text immediately comes through.

*

Luke texts:

«No way you're doing this alone. You there??»
«You okay?»

*

Danny texts:

« sorry i barfed »
« a little »

*

Luke texts:

«Nice.»

*

Danny texts:

« remind me not to drink whiskey »

*

Luke texts:

«Take some aspirin and a gallon of water and go to bed, man. Don't make me sic Emery on you.»

*

Danny texts:

« gonna go. thanks man. sorry if i woke »

*

Luke texts:

«ttyl»
