Raven Retreats to the Hotel Lobby
Raven leaves the ballroom without a word to Ian. She heads to the lobby where she begins texting a couple of her best girlfriends, just to vent. Bridget is waiting in the lobby for her husband, the chef, who is getting off early for a change. Mike and Sydney are hanging out. She's a little cranky due to her tiring day and her refusal to go to sleep. Ron is working the front desk, due to a staff shortage.
The check in counter happens to be a fireplace turned around backwards. Originally I had the fireplace in the lobby, but it looked too much like a regular living room. The little thing I use as the luggage rack and coat rack was found at the thrift store. I have no idea what it was originally.
"Hello. I'm Morgan and I have a reservation."
"Are you here with the modeling agency?" (Ron)
"Yes. How did you know?" (Morgan)
"Well if you don't mind me saying so, you are stunning." (Ron)
"I don't mind at all. Thanks." (Morgan)
"What is taking your father so long. He better not have me waiting here for hours." (Bridget)
"I can't believe him. He apparently doesn't know who he's dealing with. Doesn't he know how many men are dying to date me? And I'm supposed to sit back while he plays around with some other chick. She ain't even cute! I am not the one! Jerk!" (This conversation is only happening in Raven's head)
"Oh Adele. You have a lot of making up to do. I'm here in town and you are playing hostess all day. Your priorities are a little out of order." (Another conversation happening only in Mike's head)
"Okay. So I have you here for 3 days, 2 nights. One king bed on the fourth floor." (Ron)
"Will you need one key or two?" (Ron)
"One will be fine. Is there a nice restaurant nearby?" (Morgan)
"We have a nice restaurant here in the hotel, and there are a number of other restaurants and shops near the water." (Ron)
"Awww. Isn't that adorable. See that's what I need. A more mature man. I keep messing with these little boys."
"I'll have someone bring your bags up shortly. Any thing else I can do for you?" (Ron)
"No. That should do it." (Morgan)
"Where do you think you're going carrot top?" (Bridget)
