Hotel Cairo (Scene 5)

11th of November 2016

There's a limit to love, but the galaxy between them never found earth. This moment is not ending, could it be a trap? He thought in dread. The other man tells her something (also in french); she opened her fist and gave him a branch - a white, palest of branch, with black buds - that she had in her palm. The young man was unaware at this point; he slips into oblivion and passes out the minute they leave the room. 

He spends the night on the floor of the most prestigious suite in the hotel. This suite had a window overlooking the deep valley that creatures flew over. He woke up the next morning, poured himself a drink, and as he stood by the window observing the empty desert, he saw them from a distance; the two from last night - they were climbing from the bottom of the valley; wearing camping bags and clinging onto a robe.

He glanced at the building on their side, and through one of its windows he saw an Egyptian woman in colorful housecoat and a head wrapper. He couldn't have anticipated her next move when she calmly opens the window shutter and jumps. From the highest building in the area, the woman falls steadily in one line, landing on the robe. Three of them fall together down the valley. He sees creatures flying over this scene and taking the bodies away - but these creatures were human-like.

He writes this down.
