“Tell me about the Men in Black. Who are they and what do they want with us all?” Doug asked Daniel.

Daniel sat on the lounge seat corner and paused for a moment to explain to them in simple terms for them to understand it, “The Men in Black has different areas of theories from people or could be the case of all them being true and it depends on what type of Men in Black you encountered. They are people that come to witnesses of UFO’s, researchers or people who have in possession of alien objects that they demand to given to them.  Some have threatened such as in this case and others have killed in the name of protecting the secret. That secret is whatever you are trying to uncover. Some of Men in Black are government agents in disguise. From the black car to trying to find out who they were will be impossible to uncover. All of the accounts tell us from people who told their story is that they seem to know a lot about you. Then there’s the more sinister part about them.” Daniel explained.

“What’s that?” Doug wondered.

“There are some a number of cases when the Men in Black are actually alien themselves. More Grey type aliens and we are not sure if they work for the government or they are working just by themselves to cover their own tracks. The coldness you felt when he touched you says to me it could be a Grey alien you had encountered near the beach. One could be human and the other was alien. Both from the government working together could be the case for that.”

Doug had that disbelief look on his face. He was struggling to understand that now his family was threatened or the fact the whole thing was a joke. Part of him was starting to believe in the unexplained.

“I can’t take this as a joke. They knew about me and even where I was. Our investigations has to stop now Daniel. I’m sorry even if this latest photos you found is partly odd to me but for the sake of all of us we need to put a end to this. My career at NASA could be trouble as well.” Doug explained telling Daniel.

“Doug today is a rainy day and now you will know what I mean by that. I have saved up money than the 200 000 thousand dollars that the NASA files have on me,” Daniel said back to him.

“Why have you been saving money for all these years?”

“I have over two million dollars saved and funded by a trust fund by other researchers in case of a breakthrough or an event such as the Men in Black. Over the years I have travelled and built contacts with people worldwide to make something called The Phoenix Contactors. It’s a group of people who protect each other from any harm and research and move towards finding the truth about what I do. I want to protect you and Susan from any harm.”

“The insane investigations have to end Daniel. I don’t even feel safe at work because of this. They could contact me again. They said they would see me again. What do I do?” he asked Daniel.

“Stay at NASA, it’s a powerful agency of the government and a profile such as yourself wouldn’t be killed without media press. The Men in Black would not want that to happen. If they are smart enough they will come for me and not you, Susan or Jack. You can try to run or end my investigation but I doubt it’s going to solve much. If you believe in the unexplained than I’m the guy who knows most about it.”

Jack pulled his gun and checked it to see if it was loaded and working, “So Doug stays where he is and he’s safe right? What do we do in terms of the Men in Black?”

“You can stay here to watch over them in case anything happens. But what I want the Men in Black to do is to move their attention to me. I mean really I’m the one that they truly want. My plan of action is to keep doing what are doing, pushing through with these cases and exploring the darker areas of UFO’s and aliens. We will push into areas and things that will make the mind blow and that’s where we need to go,” Daniel replied to the pair.

“How does this Phoenix Connectors work?” Doug asked.

“It’s different locations around the world where many of them are off the grid so to speak. The government believes they are dead or they never existed in the first place. I would not be surprised if the Men in Black work similar to that.”

Daniel picked up the gun that Jack placed on the desk and popped out his phone. Doug stood up and walked up to the study room door, “I’ll be with Susan if you need anything. I want to make sure that this plan works.”

Daniel headed for the door as well and turned to Jack, “I have to do something by myself. I will come back soon to see you all again. I have to deal with a storm tonight,” he said leaving the room and heading for the front door of Doug and Susan’s house.

Susan saw Doug and Jack come from the study room and she had some coffee and coca for the two of them. She sat down on the lounge and looked up at Doug knowing he wasn’t all there and in two minds about something.

“Are you ok dear? You seemed to be stressed about something. Is it to do with Daniel or with work?” she asked him.

“Nah, nah, Susan just some deadlines I need to keep to with NASA. You know how they can get on your back about things like that. How’s dinner going? Do you need a hand with that?”

“Oh no, most of it is nearly ready. Just need to wait for the lamb to cook in the oven for a while longer,” Susan answered.

Doug and Jack exchanged nervous looks at each other while Susan went over to check on the oven and to see how it was cooking for dinner.  Both were wondering where Daniel was going to and why he took the gun with him. Was it for protection? Was he going to visit someone or something dangerous? It was a nervous and worrying wait for the pair while they stayed out of the light of the Men in Black.
