Asked for an short story about Halley's comet. This scene is set during the comet's rotation which we will hopefully all be alive to see, 2061 AD.
I tried to do it in script format but this website totally blows when it comes to document formatting. Maybe I will change to something better. Probably not. Until then I am going to do the characters in offensive bold.

INT. A CAVE ON THE QINGHAI LAKE, QINGHAI PROVENCE - NIGHT
PRIEST HOWIN CERULARIUS is kneeling on the ground of in a poorly lit cave. There is a small fire in front of her and she has a thick cloak on her back. Under the cloak she is wearing a traditional Catholic Cassock. Around her neck is a white Clerical Collar. She is of Chinese descent, born some time ago in the same province in which the cave is also located, Qinghai.
There is a slight jerk of her head as she reacts to a message alert noise. Her tongue is seen bulging in her cheek, following her left incisors to find a small tooth sensor. Her tongue activates a neural link which causes a screen to appear in front of her eyes. The image is coming from her Stereopticon, a projection device embedded in her cornea.
There is a series of messages appearing rapidly. Various voices are leapfrogging each other. The messages are in a combination of Mandarin, Spanish, and English.
A man enters the cave and the projection blinks out. CERULARIUS meets his eyes and welcomes her friend with a small smile.
It is revealed that he is wearing an identical religious attire after he removes his protective flying gear. It is a second priest, PRIEST LEVI MUELLER. He enters and kneels before CERULARIUS on the opposite side of the fire.
Close up of MUELLER scrutinizing the face of CERULARIUS. Faint light is emitted from her eyes as messages begin scrolling through her stereopticon which she has set on internal projection mode. He slowly walks out of the cave. He has donned his flight suit and he replaces his helmet before his flight back to civilization.
