I'll be honest, this is really, really hard to read with the way it is written. Your formatting needs a lot of work. It's really hard to read one great big wall of text. It seems like you're trying to write a screenplay, in which case there are specific formats and layouts you should be using. Templates are easy enough to find online, I would suggest you look into those and try to emulate that style. Best of luck in the future to you.
