Daniel and Tazu had found Maris one of the men in black in the secret basement area in the forest out away from the eye of the public. Maris put his hands in his pockets smilling at the two of them.

“Where’s your unhuman friend of yours?” Daniel asked first.

“He’s around, in a meeting at the moment. Daniel when you starting digging for whatever truth you were seekingI didn’t think you would get this far but you surprised me. You might think you have reached the end but you have only digged through the first few layers. We’re been looking for Tazu for a while since he broke away from us. You do understand that a alien of his type can’t be wandering around like this.”

“What about the children, the black eyed children. They are walking around in plain sight,” Daniel asked.

“Some do escape from us but no one bothers to believe in what they are. Most people don’t believe in the paranormal and it suits us very well. ”

“What is the agreement and who is in the inner circle?”

“The agreement is a contract set up by some sectors of aliens and human to work together for sa common cause. The inner circle knows some of these details. Everyone in the inner circle who tries to bring that information out in the open disappears so to speak. Now the questions is over.”

“No, wait,” Daniel cried waving his hands in the air, “What is this place? Is this the work that the agreement is all about?”

“There are many areas such as this in the country. They are all humans but only the real secret areas has both alien and human.  Oh look here is my friend behind you now. Now you know some of what is happening in this world right under their noses. But the rest of story won’t be told to you. Not now, not ever,” Maris answered pulling out a gun towards Daniel.

Tazu stepped forward to Maris and put out his arms, “Take me if you truly want me. Leave him out of it. He won’t be able to know more without me. Do you think anyone will believe what he has seen here.”

“I can take you now and shot Phoniex at the same time. You can’t bargin with…” Maris stopped when the lights in the rooms started to flicker on and off loudly. For some reason Tazu and the other men in the black, the reptilian looked worried, his true form appeared all of sudden as a black eyed child entered the room but there was something not good about him. A glowing spirit was felt from him. Maris noticed the two aliens was unsure of the creature before them. Daniel watched the black eyed child who was more like a teenager age.

Maris dropped the gun on the floor and he fell to the ground dazed and confused but for some reason Daniel the only human left was standing and still watching.

“What is that Tazu?” I asked him.

“He used to be human, he used to be alien but he is no longer either one of them,” Tazu grabbing my arm.

The black eyed teenager dropped his hoodie that he was wearing and stared at Daniel, “You are different. A missing piece of your life reveals the truth.Why don’t you just let me in?” the young man spoke to him.

“Why haven’t I fallen like Maris. Tell me,” Daniel asked as Tazu looked towards a exit door to escape the secret basement.

“You can’t let me inside your soul. The world is becoming darker and a war is coming. One for you and one for all of the worlds.” he spoke.

Tazu pushed Daniel out of the room and they escaped through a number of rooms and saw the main exit. They came to the doors and and shut it behind them. They ran through the forest and trees and the open road was coming up. Tazu stopped in his tracks and turned to Daniel.

“That was not real back there. He was a spirit,” he told Daniel.

“A hybrid human and alien that became a ghost. Was that why everyone is the room was worried about? They were unsure of how to approach it? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Do you understand what he meant by what he said?” he asked him.

“The message of the spirit I did not understand. By the reseach of my people about your dead spirits is that they can tell the future or maybe clues about your own past. For now I have to leave you. I have what I need to leave this world but I need to find my transport. I will see you again Daniel. You are special I can feelthat and that’s why I came to you.”

“You can come with me and you can be safe,” Daniel told Tazu.

“I won’t be safe and specially you. They won’t stop chasing you. We are both not safe now. The danger has set in. We need to leave here now. We have angered whoever lives here. Goodbye for now,” Tazu replied turning around and disappearing into the open road and turning invisble using one of the discs he had from eariler.

Daniel stood by the road side trying to take in the events of his day. He had the answers to some of his mysteries. That some people in the government or some higher power is working with aliens and the inner ciricle can reveal more of the story but at a high cost. He wandered off along the road thinking about what to do next.

 

Later in the night Daniel had arrived home with Sonia, Jack, and Doug waiting for him. Hayden and Ayna had left to return back home by the time he returned. Doug served coffee while Daniel explained about the events.

“So you finally found what you were looking for. The alien child and then you escaped and he left you. At least you found out the answers to what you were looking for. What was that riddle that strange teenager was saying to you,” Doug asked Daniel.

Daniel sipped his coffee on the louge and replied, ” You are different. A missing piece of your life reveals the truth.Why don’t you just let me in. That’s what he said. I have no idea about it.”

“Sounds like this spirit by what Hayden’s knowledge has told me is that he saw something in your past that you don’t know about.  Maybe the Witness can help you there,” Sonia spoke.

Jack shook his head over the whole affair thinking about it, “What was the last thing he told you?”

“He told me: You can’t let me inside your soul. The world is becoming darker and a war is coming. One for you and one for all of the worlds. Something about two wars. Two big events coming my way. The part about not letting him in is linked to what he said first. I think I need a break from this all,” Daniel answered feeling tired.

“That’s what I want from you Daniel. You can’t stress yourself out like this. It’s been a massive few days for all of us. This Tazu will find you again when he feels the time is right. I don’t think the men in black will come for us for a while. Not until we have another big move. What will you do during your break?” Sonia asked Daniel.

“Well stay at home and have a little holiday to myself  but I will meet this Vincent Lamour character I read in my emails. He wants to meet me about something. Hang on, that name rings a bell. He was on a forum board I browse sometimes. I think he was working on something on a same case that I was. But for tonight I’ll be fine. I found a alien today. I can’t believe this day would come.”

“I still don’t believe it at times. I wish things were normal before all this happened,” Doug said to the group.

The group stayed together for the night and Daniel went to his study room and turned on his computer by himself in the dark room. He put on a coat to keep him warm and clicked on a case file on one of his hard drives.

“Dark towers spotted in different locations worldwide. Sightening describle the tower as the same on all accounts by people in different countries,” Daniel read out one of his notes.

“This is more interesting than I thought at first. What’s this message… the tower has appeaered in recent times. Some people believe it’s the same tower. That’s not possible. Really. I’ll have to meet this Lamour soon. For now it’s goodnight for me,” Daniel said clicking off the monitor screen.

Daniel sat in the dark by himself thinking of everything that has happened to him, “It’s not over, it’s only the beginning,” he thought to himself.
