She is seeking a reaction. Doomed to failure. He continues to

type. She takes a small mini-bar bottle of vodka from her

pocket, downs it. He does not react.

She looks at him. Leans in.

SYBILLE (CONT’D)

Je te degoute? Non?

PINE:

Not at all.

SYBILLE:

I disgust myself too. Sometimes I

want to cut myself just to feel the

pain.

PINE:

Does Mademoiselle require a knife

to be sent to her room?

She fingers an ornate PAPER KNIFE on the reception desk.

PINE (CONT’D)

You won’t have much luck with that,

I’m afraid.

He looks at her coolly.

SYBILLE:

I hate you.

She turns on her heel and sashays across the parquet floor.

The snow falls outside. PINE opens a French window. Walks out

into the cold.

PINE gets up. He savours the quiet. Just one Milanese couple

having a tryst in the dining room. Nothing else.

a cruel world.

Then he sees a light on in an office window. He pauses,

curious.

PINE (IN GERMAN)

You should have gone by now.

An office off the main reception area. The manager of

Meisters Hotel - HERR STRIPPLI, 50 years old, punctilious and

slightly vain, is finishing his paperwork. PINE’s head round

the door.

HERR STRIPPLI:

A late booking came in. I had to

arrange their requirements.

Because of course, no one else can.

PINE:

Nationality?

HERR STRIPPLI:

One of yours.

HERR STRIPPLI (CONT’D)

Private jet, landing at Lindesheim

in two hours. A large party. He

wants the Tower Suite.

PINE frowns.

PINE:

How can they land at Lindesheim?

That’s military.

HERR STRIPPLI:

And this is Switzerland, Jonathan.
