Hi all,

I have a situation where two scenes are happening in two different places, but simultaneously. 

Say a meeting is going on, they ask an agent at another place to find out something and the meeting continues. Meanwhile, that man finds out and reports back, which affects the outcome of this meeting.

How do I show that in two different scenes without affecting their chronological sequence?

That's a tough one...

It seems to me you have to break in the middle of the first scene in order to do the agent finding out something and reporting back, then continue the first scene, for it to make sense...

That doesn't sound like a good option to me, but I can't think of anything else that would work. Perhaps someone else will have a suggestion?

Otherwise I would consider reworking when that information is found out.
