Work in progress... But I'm having a lot of fun writing it.  Pardon the formatting loss it is supposed to be a screenplay

FADE IN:
INT. ADRIAN'S CABIN - DAY
 
ADRIAN HELSING, mid-thirties and overly pale, rubs his face as he sits up naked in the dark bunk.  He runs his hands through his shagged blond hair. 

He SIGHS as he slides on a pair of delicate gold rimmed spectacles and reaches for a fold set of white scrubs and begins to dress himself. 

Adrian stands and raises the shade revealing a purple planet and a star-scape.  

He smiles at the view and leaves the cabin. 

INT. LAB ONE- DAY
The lab is a glistening white, sterile space.  Equipment is arranged in the small room such that one person could easily work all of it with a minimal amount of walking and turning. 

Adrian stands at a workstation, typing on a small touch screen tablet. 

He strikes a button and a headshot of a young brunette woman appears on the screen.  When adrian speaks he has a slight Welsh accent. 

ADRIAN
Computer, bring pod...

He checks the screen again

ADRIAN
Thirty-one forty to lab two and begin waking protocol.  

The computer CHIRPS and Adrian OPENS drawers pulling out medical equipment, including two empty blood bags arranging the tools on a plastic tray.    

INT. LAB TWO - LATER

Lab two is a little larger than lab one, but just as sterile looking. 

The brunette woman, mid-twenties, lies in an open coffin like metallic tube wearing purple scrubs.  The number "3140" is written on it in several places accompanied by a bar code. 

Adrian enters as she rubs her face. 

ADRIAN
Good morning, take it slowly. 

The woman GROANS and nods her head weakly. 

Adrian sets the tray down with a CLICK on a small rolling table.  He smiles, carefully avoiding revealing his teeth, as he picks up the tablet once more.  

ADRIAN
Now, first things first, What is your name?

On the screen: BETHANY FOLEY appears next to the head shot.  

BETHANY
Bethany Foley. 

ADRIAN
Excellent. 

He taps the screen. 

ADRIAN
Now what is your role in the mission?

BETHANY
I am an artistic cultural liaison should it be needed. 

Adrian nods and smiles to set the tablet aside, taking up a small tube like device. 

ADRIAN
Two for two.  That's good to see. 

He steps over to Bethany. 

BETHANY
Have other people failed?

ADRIAN
About one out of a hundred has trouble.  Now, open your eyes please. 

Bethany opens her eyes and blinks them shut almost instantly. 

ADRIAN
Computer, lower the lights fifty percent. 

The computer CHIRPS and the lights dim.  Bethany opens her eyes and they stay open this time. 

Adrian quickly runs his device across her eyes and stands up. 

ADRIAN
When you're ready please sit up. 

He begins making entries into the tablet.  Bethany slowly pushes herself to sit on the edge of the tube. 

BETHANY
Do I eat at some point?

ADRIAN
Are you hungry?

Adrian turns, poised to enter her answer on the tablet.

BETHANY
Not yet. 

Adrian smiles, again not showing teeth when he does. 

ADRIAN
If, during the course of the exercises, you get hungry, we will feed you. 

Adrian ROLLS the small table over to Bethany.   

Bethany eyes the blood bags and other medical utensils suspiciously. 

ADRIAN
It's standard protocol...

He runs an alcohol swab over the bend of her left arm. 

ADRIAN
Then before we put you back under we draw another. 

BETHANY
Why?

ADRIAN
Test samples. 

Bethany still looks nervous. 

BETHANY
That's a lot of testing. 

ADRIAN
Indeed.  But we're all part of a grand experiment aren't we?

BETHANY
I gotta tell ya doc I'm kind of squeamish about needles. 

Adrian Smiles, this time showing a set of perfect, white teeth. 

ADRIAN
Look right. 

Bethany does and Adrian's hands fly by her left arm. 

ADRIAN
And the worst part is over. 

Bethany looks down at her arm.  

A tube is inserted and the blood bag is beginning to fill.  

BETHANY
Wow, that was fast...

ADRIAN
You're still probably sluggish from cryo. 

Adrian smiles.  He turns on a second tablet computer and sets it on the table in front of Bethany. 

ADRIAN
Complete the questions as indicated on the screen.  You are being timed, when you've completed I'll collect you. 

Adrian lifts the tray and collecting his own tablet leaves the lab.

 FInally after three years of wanting a sofa.... 


A friend bought one herself and gave me the old (still in fairly excellent shape) one.  AND A COFFEE TABLE... One that I used to eat at as a small child. 


The homemaker faeries visited my house on Monday.
