    __________________________________________________ _______________________________________________

    ...
    Suddenly Aneena listens to the eerie urges inside of anger then dump a bag of leaves over Marks bed.
    Will Marks notice that it is her ?
    The bright colors of red, orange and brown tossed about the bed...
    ... making the fine quit with essence of September which ... brings back memories ...

    Memories always arrive in time...
    Memories always arrive on time...
    A bed decorated with Autumn leaves... ...
    Autumn might suggest past or future...
    The present, the untimely present, loves defying logic by being only just a plan...
    ...

    Aneena squats down on the sheets, then she lies on the wrinkled sheets.
    Wrinkles and yellowish orange leaves...
    Wrinkles shaping images.
    ...

    There 's a knock,... and the bronze handle door flows open,... it is Marks.
    Immediately his eyes open wide in complete shock, placing a hand over his chest doing this with such grace.
    Aneena repudiates the look in his eyes...

    There is a long silence between Aneena and Marks.

    Marks decides it is best to take a step back...
    ...and closes the door to whatever dilemma is happening in this room now.
    He does not want to be any part of it.
    Marks has seemingly forgotten about ... untimely affairs ... with a woman.
    ...
    The awkard feeling starts vanishing, Aneena takes a hand full of leaves and crashes them...
    ...

    Marks' thoughts race. His mind goes through questions and answers:

    "... *untimely affairs ... with a woman ?*,... *untimely affairs ... with Aneena ?*,...
    ... *untimely affairs?*, ... *untimely affairs?* ...
    Nonsense,... nonsense... There is never an unsuitable time for an affair with a woman...
    A foolish episode of an unstructured love... *An unstructured romance !?*, ... * an unstructured love !?...
    ... *Nonsense ! ... Nonsense ! ... "
    ...
    Marks sees it as a variant of ... sociopathy... and says to himself:
    "... Unstable and intense interpersonal relations toying with rapid shifts in the manipulation of others...
    Unstable and intense interpersonal relations !!!... How weird these words are !!!
    If I use these words... I will never date Aneena... "
    ...
    The sound of crashing leaves...
    Autumn leaves? ... Dried yellow leaves ?...
    Well, ... Autumn is the most inspirational of seasons...
    There is a part of Marks that will forever want to be walking under Autumn leaves.
    Autumn is a symbol of maturity of beings... Will love find a way against time itself ?...
    Autumn and its weak sun are compared to a pair of people whispering secrets to each other.
    Autumn is an increased focus on some vampiric waiting...
    ...
    What an intriguing situation...
    It is not fully clear whether myth or fact can be of romantic significance...
    While there seems to be an argument for Aneena's interpretation,...
    ... perhaps some other circumstances are building Marks' path to her.

    ... ... ...

    Marks goes home. His memories asking him what he remembers...
    He had gone for a ride in Aneena's room.
    Exceeding the speed of light:
    *Falling in love ?. Love first sight?... *
    ...
    Well,... Aneena's face. Aneena's body. Her surroundings looked like little dots for motionless seconds...
    Now Marks becomes aware that he is not building a path to Aneena
    Instead, Marks is going where there is no path,...leaving a trail.


    ... ... ...

    Marks is not misled by what he sees around him, he knows there is a playground of illusion, full of false paths.
    He has psychic abilities but misuses them and must now be very careful of them.
    Aneena has changed the course of events...in a weird way. In a vampiric way ?.
    Marks tunes in his car radio to a music show...
    ... And to his surprise, ... the speaker has the same voice as Aneena...
    A strange situation... A strange infatuation ?.
    Marks' insights into Aneena´s room. The beauty and serenity in the enviroment she had created...
    The strength of her presence making an enveloping impression on Marks' consciousness.
    ...
    The female speaker says:

    "I know you would like listening to Train's song *Hey, soul sister, Ain't that Mr. Mister, On the radio, stereo? *...
    It would coincide with certain situation, wouldn't it, driver ?
    And I know you notice an extraordinary transformation in the evening cityscape...It is glowing...
    And I know you're receptive to it. I feel there's a newly revealed light in your eyes..."

    ... ...

    Marks makes his car move along the cityscape...
    Streets. Sidewalks. Buildings. Windows...
    Neon signs seems to be replaced ... with the name ... Aneena...
    An effect caused by ... signs ... Signs coming out of everything, everywhere,... everyone ...

    The female speaker's voice invades Marks's mind:

    "The street's attitude toward you appears to be changing...
    Two souls become attached to each other,... and become entrapped in their systems of thought...
    If I say that you are paranoid, I mean that you are extremely suspicious and afraid of... romantic coincidences...,
    ... which may evolve into this classic pop Suzanne Vega's song called *Luka* ... "

    The song enters the car:

    * My name is Luka, ... I live on the second floor,...I live upstairs from you,...Yes I think you've seen me before...
    If you hear something late at night,... Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight...
    Just don't ask me what it was,... Just don't ask me what it was,... Just don't ask me what it was
    I think it's because I'm clumsy,...I try not to talk too loud,... Maybe it's because I'm crazy,... I try not to act too proud... *
    ... ... ... ...

    The female speaker's voice goes on ... on the radio:
    "Memories always arrive in time...
    Memories always arrive on time...
    A bed decorated with Autumn leaves... ...
    Autumn might suggest past or future...
    The present, the untimely present, loves defying logic by being only just a plan..."
    ...

    Aneena's room ...
    The wallpaper is so detailed and beautiful...
    It takes some time to realize that the rest of the room is quite simple: chairs , a bare floor with no rug, beautiful mirrors .
    The juxtaposition of that simplicity with the really over-the-top things like the wallpaper, and her hammered iron bed.

    Aneena squats down on the sheets, then she lies on the wrinkled sheets.
    Wrinkles and yellowish orange leaves...
    Wrinkles shaping images.
    Pareidolia ... Pareidolia ...


    Marks says to Aneena:
    "No matter however logical and practical I am,...
    ... I am a man and you are a woman, Aneena,...and we both like a little romance in our lives.
    I still have one breath of this room, I want to have touches of your hand and kisses of your mouth...
    These are very genuinely heartfelt words, Aneena.
    I am talking to you, Aneena, and it’s up to you to hear me..."

    Suddenly Marks notices something weird about the Aneena's room ...
    Marks notices that the bedroom kind of looks unfinished...
    Unfinished...?
    It is not unfinished. It is changing,.. and a man appears in the mirrors...


    The man says:
    "You are lost in a daydream, Marks. I am not Aneena...
    I am a psychiatrist trying to help you understand and treat your condition".

    Aneena's room goes on changing. It finally becomes a Doctor's office.
    Suddenly Marks remembers the doctor office visit....
    The meeting between him with a psychiatrist to get treatment for a condition or a symptom.


    Marks says: "Daydream, doctor ? Oh, no. This is madness..."

    Doctor: "No, Marks. I have to diagnose you with impatience..."

    Marks: " I am mad... I like being mad. Which is the aim of madness ?"

    Doctor: "Impatience "...

    Marks: "Being mad, when properly processed by the brain, can help me to reach enlightenment and love and romance...
    And that is what is so great about Aneena, is that she does such unusual and interesting things".

    Doctor: "Coincidences ?. Signs, Marks?...
    So you think this woman, ... Aneena,... is in love with you because....
    ... because of a song you heard on your car radio when you were comnig here ?
    And you consider yourself an enlightened human being, thanks to your madness...
    I also believe that you could've been ... a vampire ... in a past life, and that you're still meant for greatness in this life..."
    ... ...

    The Doctor goes on speaking:
    "You are excited, Marks.
    You cannot relax, because you are thinking about something pleasant that is going to happen to you.
    Impatience... Anticipation...
    Your emotions include pleasure, excitement and anxiety in considering an expected event.
    Very enthusiastic and eager...
    The process of imaginative speculation about the future...
    Your brain uses illogical information about an ... untimely affair...
    ... ... ...
    But I heartily feel that you use illogical information about many other facts, Marks,...
    ... many other situations,... in order to work them out,... in order to make them work better...
    ... ...
    You love knowing that life is twisted...
    You're wise enough to have all figured out.... And you’ve got all figured out... "

    ... ... ... ...

    Aneena driftes through the rest of the house.
    She often glanced and touched all of Marks' things...
    Lurking in the hallway, then on the staircase and then the narrow hallway again.
    Following soft traces of *Marks fragrance* being lifted up gradually with time.
    ...
    Aneena was enlighten above all else.
    This Vampire was very much human. Undead often go insane.
    Nothing abnormal;... an office, bedroom, extra half bathroom, walk in closets, and balony.
    White ancient draped currents,... some type of Aztec design at the edges in golden arches.

    Aneena felt at home.


    Until a dark frighting howl or a scream. It was madness. By itself a large painting towering over everything.
    Did not decided what the painting would be yet...

    ... ... ... ...

    Marks is in his living room as if sharing his image because,
    As long as his books are in neat piles, he is fine.
    In his view, his home is always neat enough for the public eye... for spirits, for supernatural creatures, ... etc ...

    Marks is watching a movie on YouTube; ... *Life of Crime* starring Jennifer Aniston.


    The voices of the characters:
    * ... These are people with style, like you, baby. Jack Nicholson you know.
    Anyone with a brain cell knows him. Lelous Delafilace.
    For Christ's sake. Jean Renoir?
    I don't wanna play anymore.
    Meanie.
    Okay. What do you wanna do? ... You wanna ****?
    The mouth on you!
    Since we're going to bed, yeah.
    You wanna do the Florentine thing again?
    Which one is that?
    Whoo! ... ... *

    At the same time, Marks reads quotes by Jennifer Aniston:
    "I think a good relationship is about collaboration"...
    ... "I want to see friends more and travel more"...
    "Everybody relates to having a dream"... "I'm thrilled with how my career is evolving".

    Then Marks googles movie *The Yellow Birds*... Jennifer Aniston in a war film...
    Two young soldiers, Bartle (21) and Murph (18) navigate the terrors of the Iraq war...
    They both are under the command of the older, troubled Sergeant Sterling (jennifer Aniston).
    All the while, Bartle is tortured by a promise he made to Murph's mother before their deployment.

    ...
    Marks says to himself: "Maybe Jennifer Aniston has a evil-looking smiling face"
    ... ... ... ...

    The dimension of human personality theory take pleasure in activities such as living and being an average person...
    ...
    The dimension of vampiric personality theory is the state of being mainly interested in one's own mental self.
    ...
    And the mental energy tends to expand through reflection and ... hide information ... during interaction.
    Marks feels that Aneena seems to be complex and unique.
    So Marks and Aneena, selfishness and pride, pride and selfishness, are making a stand against the rest of people...
    And it is really helping in self-acceptance and understanding of each other.
    Aneena and her physical and mental integrity...
    Marks will use his expertise to get answers from Aneena.

    This has some interesting visuals, but it reads more like a short story than a screenplay. A script needs to only include things that can take place on the screen and things that an actor can portray. Avoid commentary about what's going on, and a character's thoughts or memories.

    Screenwriting is very rule-bound, so you should also acquaint yourself with proper formatting. The easiest way to do that is to check out some existing screenplays. There are a bunch of sources in this link:
