Broken dreams (14)
Scene WHERE - EXACTLY WHERE - TIME OF DAY
67 „While RF drove off in some excitement, follower had happened in the
theatre: once the incredible case of the female fan who had taken the life
supposedly because of RF led to meetings of other fans who felt similarly.
But: there was neither an official grave with coffin or urn or, otherwise, a
place for the women who wanted to remember there. The theatre and
also the film studios where RF was to be found was thus an approach
point for those people who did not manage the past well and gave to the
star the guilt, although he did not have unambiguously. Now Ralph was
able to do absolutely nothing for the fact that he looked now like the
older RF and was mistaken, besides, however, "occasionally" he was still
he himself. Though the police was surprised when one had here more
company than in the flat of RF before, however, still a supervision order
existed, now one pursued the wrong man, also in the job.
INSIDE - HALL in the THEATRE - MEET
Ralph after the test with him in one of the first rows before the stage.

(puts out of tune)
„If is anyhow no funny situation. To discuss audience, yes, but not thus
with the tests and not this unobtrusively his wishing people with her small
microphones what there is here splendidly?“
Also his colleagues got the restlessness, however, tried to concentrate
upon her work, an older colleague came up to Ralph, then stopped short.
„You are so incredibly similar to Yourselves, you and RF that one often
does not know whom one has now before himself. I accept, you know
what makes the police here? Are there announcements in the anniversary
of her death again?“
Ralph lifted repulsing the hands, looked a little bit messy, the telephone
call with RF had made him rather even more nervous. Well was that he
had to observe now only the work of the others or wanted to tune
himself. Clear his activity still gave to him pleasure, but if alongside
restlessness originated, was incriminating.
„RF appeared to something out of breath, was not recognised as a RF,
now he was a young actor whom one perceived as friends of Ralph...
Nevertheless, Ralph decided to disappear with RF in his big day room
when they were just detained by that detective superintendent who left
once the photos in RF `s to flat.“
68 INSIDE - one of the HALLS in the THEATRE - MEET
„Do you permit, my MESSRS. F. and....? I believe the young man to
know, however, does not come just now on his name.“
RF grinned mockingly, devise fast a name?
„Ralf van den Bergen, in the last academic year in the college for arts.“
The commissioner nodded thoughtfully.
„Now, because we have now the problem: Their name is Ralf van den
Bergen, before me Ralph or who it is: RF? For which artist must be
searched now? I think, we can solve all that very easily. They simply give
me your identification maps, we try out them in the doors to your day
rooms and we have at least the certainty that we do not search for a man
whom I see now before myself. Our specialist for unbelievable cases has
cleared up me: in the circle of the clairvoyants and foretellers the rumour
handles, RF is 30 again, is thus?“
„Would I not have to have got to know from it first? Nevertheless, reminds
very much of a great fairy tale.“
„Good man, I see you both want to refuse to let try out your identification
maps? Then I would like to ask you both on the district without sensation.“
Ralph did not get around any more to clearing the situation on, however,
asked to be able to call up.
Detective superintendent nodded calmly.
(in a flat voice)
„Stays empty to you both to call your lawyers in, although I do not
understand the sense, call whom you want and currently you have of
course more than one phone call freely. Expect you both in one hour on
He said goodbye for the moment very politely and Ralph RF shook a little
„Do you have the goodness to clear up me, why I can work now
apparently again not completely? Can keep only around a magnificent
nonsense, extrasensory does not fit thus at all here, although.....“
„Ralph remembered his first day together in the small round with Marianne.
With the young man which looked similar to him when he was just at that
age he had held for a joke, because in magic and other mysterious things
he did not believe than realist. However, he had joined in not to offend
other, that which believed in transmigrations and the like more. There
could not be a gentle God for him for certain reasons also.“
„I already think that you need to give no trouble yourself because of your
and my work, today in the evening you will stand on the stage if we could
clear at the police.“
„What, actually? You cannot make to me really before that you yourself
are RF which was 60 years old before days. I could be liked this because
I absolutely have sense for jokes, but if the police robs here of the nerve,
this goes definitely too far. So what is wrong?“
„If it has already said you or to explain tried, I could not think in the
hypnosis before also so right, however, it have happened things between
sky and earth which showed up me a little deeper in than ever before.
You are stuck too much in Here and Now, as that you could simply fancy
soul meetings. Madleine has opened to me a gate which I soon want to
cross again, and it is only to get advice just short with my mother.“
(a little persuaded)
„Nice thanks for this idea of you, we must hurry up who pack of girl and
go then to the district and the time sits also in the nape, so now please no
more nonsense, understood?“
RF lifted the shoulders, was not his problem if the other man was not to
be persuaded. Travelling in the past by means of hypnosis had been
looked also as mad, but too many facts spoke for the fact that the soul of
a person simply after the first death does not disappear in Nothing.
„When both men asked the women to accompany them on the district,
anticipated Madleine that she would have to pay attention from now on
even more what she said whom. Marianne and them sat down behind in
the car, both men in front, everybody remained silent first, RF smiled a
little enigmatically and Ralph played about a little with the steering wheel
as if he Can travel around thus his irritation about this pointlessly expel."
69 INSIDE - PASSENGER AREA - MEET
„It is clear that you feel cheated in your working hours, Ralph, but you two
both are to blame yourselves, you had the identification map, besides, and
if something had been, one could have issued behind some declarations. If
was a big mistake to annoy the detective superintendent. But,
nevertheless, now here no rash movements of the hand with the steering
wheel, would like to come with pleasure unscathed. Is this feasible for
Ralph answered nothing, concentrated instead of this more upon the
journey and his movements of the hand became also quiet.
Ralph `s voice off-screen
„I do not drive a car the first day and if what happened to us, then you to
the believing On the other side would not be also possibly further sad,
because after a life there is indeed different still on top? So to speak, as a
reward for all this what one has performed here thus or has missed? I
would like to live rather still quite a while here and now.“
Madleine `s voice off-screen
„Nevertheless, wants to peruse to me first of all what has to mean e-mail, I
could never start with the sender "Sgrumie." something.
Voice of "Sgrumie" off-screen
„The favourite Madleine. Because my so-called day of death should be a
year since once again or also not - the newest of me gives the most
different days for my departure of the world, here: no, it does not hold for
a bad joke. Had definite reasons for my lies and my feigned death. The
illness was real, but I have found out there a wondrous selfhealing which I
apparently owe to a very gentle being from the other world. Even I
believed, my last little hour would have hit, then, however, I swore to all
what is holy to me: if to me my life is extended, I put my forces one for the
person who was the favourite to me: RF, for that was always important to
see well from, now, hence, he may be immortal whether he likes this, I do
not know, he will look 30 years old for all time. Ralph? I could not deal
with the man really, because he is declined the spiritual world even very
much, will have his reasons for. Do not think please that you owe all
surprises to me, I sit here calmly on my very lonesome luxury island with
Internet and all knowledge what one needs and does not need again also
at all if one can allow to just be all fours.“
„Madleine was not pleased with this e-mail at all. All only one bluff?
Sgrumie had joked around with people, had she lied and cheated and now
claimed even still to have managed RF `s conversion? Now immortality
was really the joke... Indeed this was also not possible biologically.
Furiously crumpled up Madleine the sheet and also did not pay attention
further to Marianne at whom she looked surprised.“
„You would like to say me what was for a sheet?“
„I would like to speak with pleasure with you of it, but not now.“
Madleine took a pencil, unfolded the sheet once again and wrote on the
„If throws quite an other light on this story, will have to discuss without
Marianne perused to himself the note and before she could look at the
other side, Madleine to her took away the sheet, tapped briefly with the
finger on her mouth... What she had not noted, exactly at the moment
Ralph saw to the back. No, the traffic was not dull, but he went so
certainly, just in the right tempo, it everything amused him suddenly and
there the also fun here prepared for him.
Ralph `s voice off-screen
„If an exciting history must be if nothing is men, woman's junk for us... So
much I also admire women, I must not want to look behind all her secrets
as well as them not behind all our.“
With a mocking look he searched on the parking bay before the police
station an opportunity to leave the carriage, a brand from the machine
moved and joined to the women and RF who waited at the entrance.
„Do not make thus a low-spirited face, nevertheless, Marianne and
Madleine must also do not worry, loose then.“
70 INSIDE - POLICE STATION - MEET
„You were too early no minute or too late with the detective
superintendent who treated the women very obliging he allowed to bring
coffee and cake, the right time was for it. RF and Ralph, however, he
examined himself thoughtfully and then appealed to an assistant, that may
bring him the specialist for unusual trap. Madleine and RF briefly
exchanged an odd look when Ralph looked to Marianne, she lowered the
SPECIALIST FOR UNUSUAL TRAP
„How nicely that we sit here peacefully together, my rules. I also see
Ralph, surprisingly, yes, it would have to be Ralph if I go after the eyes.
Thank you, for the rest, for the surrender of the identification maps which
you are got back after end of the investigations of course.“
Ralph `s voice off-screen
„Then this might become critical, in any case, for me to rest me hardly time
once again briefly, me will make fresh also no more go. Hopefully one
comes at least early away from here.“
His look went remarkable-unobtrusively by the clock on the wall...
The Specialist for unusual cases looked to Madleine which looked at him
very openly, the others looked irritated or nervously or in bewilderment
Voice of the Specialisten for unusual cases off-screen
„The woman is known to me very well: Madleine, one of the uncrowned
rulers concerns what the meeting with the other world. She talks so
informally with the souls as if are all that her friends, I will direct my word
first of all with priority to them.“
Specialist for unusual cases
„Worth Madleine when the detective superintendent was there in that
evening the photos left, RF still just looked like Ralph, they could have
been uniovular brothers. Now, however, has entered a little bit what I
cannot explain myself: why has he become so young?“
Madleine `s voice off-screen
„Now of course I could tell him that a mistake has occurred me, but this is
right, just in such a way as the words of Sgrumi are right. Unusually this
present of a soul, but possibly that it is true.“
„I know that particularly Ralph holds all those people for overexcited
spinners who listen in to the tape recorder voices from which
unambiguously voices of the deads come. He will have his reasons and
with the help of his family history I anticipate more than I know. It lies to
me far to offend him, but consolation can absolutely come if one is a little
more religious than he. I have thought first, a mistake has occurred with
the hypnosis me, but it may sound arrogantly if I state freely out: „I make
no mistakes.“ The subject is too sensitive to handle laxly with it. The soul
of RF `s mother made this unusual, but loading present to him and I give
absolute faith to this soul, she is genuine and pure, she was an artist and
will strike certainly again as an artist in the next life.“
Madleine saw not to Ralph over who had become pale with the subject
Consolation not only, but itself also in the armchair moved a little bit
nervously, to him the subject was terribly antipathetic On the other side, to
the Specialisten apparently not...
Specialist for unusual cases
„If something true can be in it, but RF has consciously lied about his
identity, he must hold the police not for silly, in consideration of that what
attacked to him I want to look away sometimes on behalf about that.
Now, however: is RF really RF or still someone else? Wants to allow to
ascertain this with pleasure, then you are everybody dismissed.“
„Of the Specialist RF and Ralph sent together to the lab over where one
would make some tests which would ascertain then unambiguously the
identity for good.“
71 INSIDE - LAB - MEET
Both men acted very differently with the blood decrease and other things.
Ralph did not let make a note of it as him all that annoyed, joked with the
young woman which took care of his blood, while RF went a little bit
oversensitively to the thing near: he closed the mouth tight the eyes, until to
him made sense as had to be incredibly embarrassing before the women.
Madleine grinned a little bit gloating, Marianne drummed nervously on a
tabletop what Ralph noted.
„Cannot be, I have compared not only the fingerprints and also other signs
everybody with each other: the signs of Ralph agree up to the smallest
with those of RF, biological miracle is still boasted.“
„Does know very exactly that I have never had one more brother, so what
is this here?“
The assistant lifted regretfully the hands.
„I have just carried out the tests and it is no doubt possibly.“
RF `s voice off-screen
„When I looked both other R `see, I believed myself to spin. Am I here in
a bad fanciful crime film in which too many Clone could walk around and
do everybody in the insanity?“
It used nothing: the identity was held on once more on identification maps
which the men should lead now in the theatre and in the private life with
themselves. Ralph doubted whether was under these mysterious
circumstances a work possible, time for the preparation remained to him
enough, but whether could he really switch off after him learn to know of
his twin who never ran to him as a child through the way, now, however.?
„Ralph did not get to drive the carriage to the theatre, this time Madleine,
beside itself drove RF, they chatted pleasantly on all possible things,
Marianne looked at Ralph a little bit uneasy: he had closed the eyes, was
to be moved to no conversation, his face fossilizes. RF and Ralph should
stand together on the stage, while they did this, both women stayed in the
canteen, there it was very pleasant for them, almost comfortable.“
72 INSIDE - space of RF in the theatre - MEET
Ralph stayed according to the image with RF, the space was slightly
smaller than his more own, but a little comfortable.
(in a good mood)
„Why are you so monosyllabic, Ralph? It was a magnificent thing to stand
with you on the stage.“
He did not know how much mental strength had cost to the old people to
concentrate only upon the text on the stage, in the way, how he could play
and wanted. Ralph was to be driven more than once been just about in the
car from the skin and to let out his lack of understanding on Madleine, but:
was what able for it? She looked to him too deeply in his soul, without he
had to say something and he not always understood why he her attention
on himself moved. He did not like it that it was for this peculiar, but also
attractive woman an open book in which she read just as one likes or also
not. Well that Marianne remained silent there.
„We better go to our women, they will want home, to me is not, in any
case, after a party to divines.“
He looked at RF which looked fresh and high-spirited, but internally just
as well as he doubted the values which the lab had found out....
„Madleine and Marianne dwelled on during them her coffee drank, also on
occasion her thoughts, Marianne observed Madleine curiously which her
music had with itself and a classic in itself took up by earphone:
Besides, "We Could Have It All" of Maureen McGovern, it happened
something what acted Madleine, otherwise, very seldom: you rolled the
tears out of sight. The same signs of Ralph and RF hard gave a hard time
73 INSIDE - CANTEEN in the theatre - MEET
Marianne saw both men first come and Madleine prodded.
„I know, now I should pull myself together, because, finally, these are the
men who must manage particularly it be a sort of twins to.“
RF came up of beaming look at Madleine, it embraced very stormily and
felt with the kiss her humid cheek.
„Now, however, is not necessary, to us or I too regretfully, I have a
famous and great man in my relationship and anticipated up to now
something. I will not forget the image so fast.“
Ralph stopped short anyhow. His play manner had differed this spot
slightly from his other ones, too much aggressiveness had been present,
possibly that now RF meant, he has formed consciously so. "Faith
Healer", in which he played Frank Hardy again, that stood everything, but
just not thus an excessive aggressiveness as he had taken them this time
from the personal life with over. Fatal mistake rather than a reason for
„It would be great if you tell me how you have just meant this.“
Voice of RF off-screen
„Oh, yes, he still is convincing, has his voice had once more quietly in
recollection, in any case, at some moments what he gets excited now so?“
„Because I played Frank Hardy one year ago myself, I could use yours as
a model always very well. But so loud?“
„I had meant the excessive aggressiveness, not the volume, to me seemed,
I should not have shown off so.“
„Then this is your personal impression, is able and becomes there nothing
„Of course Ralph could have the idea, RF wanted to flatter him either or
had been despaired to to deliver now his honest opinion. Because Ralph
was angry at the moment a little bit too much at himself, he began no
discussion and went on his part softly with Marianne around.“
2 days later.
„Ralph fought during these days internally with himself, because he had
prescribed himself for the moment for a while break, RF alone and
Marianne worked visited without Ralph a part of her family. Now
Madleine was on the 3rd day according to the image for Ralph the right
74 INSIDE - FLAT of RF - MEET
Madleine observed a little irritated and almost amused how he looked
according to the right words to ask them.
„I know, you hold what I do, for a little bit simply, but I live on this activity
which I consolation make a donation calls. Would surprise me now,
nevertheless, very much if just you want to ask me to hypnotise you, all
the same, for which reason also always.“
„I have tried to explain your looks to myself, however, could not find out
yet what makes me thus for you interesting. To work Yes, in order a part
of my life on, I think, thus an attempt would be feasible.“
„You should allow to make from somebody whose approach you know
which you trust unconditionally. Do you mean, me would be likely to send
a sceptic like you in another world?“
Madleine never had been able to count on it, his face looked carefully
whether he permitted about one joke with her to himself. He looked not
only quiet but also serious and tried to read in her eyes what he did not
„I need a while time, no days, rather probably 2 hours if you liked to wait
as long as?“
He agreed and she became engrossed in a part of her books to find the
right way for him. Whether wanted he to undertake now a trip in his
previous life or whether there remained only one attempt without success?
She also needed time to gather enough, because up to now it had felt too
much reverence. Thoughtfully she also looked those books in which she
found photos of him which showed an informally smiling very much young
man. What did he expect then from her?
