A car was slowly rolling into a dark location on a farming section as the driver in the car was watching everything around him. The car parked itself next to the farmhouse and he climbed out of it and looked at the man on the front bench at his home.
“The Witness, you called for me. You know the past few weeks has been very busy for me.”
“It has been Daniel Phoenix and your role in the Author’s War was difficult for all to be a part of. Your time to uncover the truth in all the matters of your investigations is about to begin,” the Witness told him and behind him appeared Tazu, the short alien creature who he met before the event of the Author’s War.
“Tazu? What are you doing here? I thought you would have escaped the planet by now. There’s more to this meeting isn’t there?” Daniel asked walking to them in the cold night.
“Tazu has been talking to me about his reasons being here. He does need to go home but the government has something he needs to destroy,” the Witness explained to Daniel.
Tazu nodded and showed Daniel a device that he turned on and up flashed a holograph video. The video showed a large weapon that some army troops were using. One troop was shown firing a weapon towards a dummy alien figure and it killed it in one shot
“That weapon is a dangerous tool in the hands of humans. You see Daniel your planet is protected by my race and other races who work with us for some sort of universe peace. However there are races out there stating if humans created weapons that could hurt them and if they explore space than they would attack your people,” Tazu explained to Daniel.
Daniel tossed his head confused, “Wait, our people have only sent a few people to the moon. Who says we have explored all of space, we haven’t”
“Due to the Author’s War there was discoveries of some gifted people who have explored space and now Earth has access to universe portals which is a technology that could bring in powerful weapons. It’s a technology that only the gods understand. They are now heading for the planet to attack. I want you to come with me to destroy this weapon and the plans they have found on it. It’s at Area 51,” Tazu said.
“Well if you’re a UFO investigator you’re going to have to visit Area 51 at one point in your life or cover a story on it. I want to bring Jack and Sonia it’s going to require a team effort here,” replied Daniel.
He looked up to the skies green lights were popping up along the clouds, “What are those?”
“The ones who wish to do harm. We don’t have much time due to the war before. Things have become quick now,” Tazu said.
The Witness sat down on his chair and looked at the sky, “Take the device that Tazu uses. You must go now. I hope to see you again.”
Daniel gave a blank look towards the Witness and Tazu went with him into his car. The Witness nodded goodbye and looked to the skies again, “His future is clouded and I don’t know if it was the war or this that will break him”
During the drive in the car with Daniel and Tazu, Daniel for a moment smiled for a moment looking looks towards Tazu, “You know after all this time I didn’t think I would be in my own car riding along with an actual alien. Something I have been waiting for all my life. I was thrown into this war beforehand and now this. It’s just everything has come at once.”
Tazu gave a confused look at first but nodded to himself, “Humans make plenty of mistake but there is good in them. My race can be like that too and others. We are similar in more ways than one.
Daniel rubbed his head driving along the highway thinking about his investigation career and the questions he always wanted to know, “Do you think the world should know about you and others? It’s been a question I have always wondered myself. Could they live with someone like you?”
“One day the choice we have to do that will come out of our hands. Maybe for now it’s not right for the world to know us. Humans are still young minded and soon one day they will mature to understand that their planet isn’t so special. You have a honest mind and heart Daniel and I know you are trying to do right. At least you know we exist and you have not been chasing shadows all this time,” Tazu answered Daniel.
“You know I have been doing this for a long time. Investigating aliens and UFO’s?” Daniel asked interested in Tazu’s remarks.
“I have heard that there were some close calls on you discovering alien contact. It was just you didn’t quite catch them in the act.”
“So did you find me or did I find you?” Daniel asked.
“You found me. You kept digging when others gave up and you dug in places when your life was on the line” Tazu answered keeping his face watching on the road ahead of them. Daniel gave passing looks at Tazu the short grey typed alien that most people in the world had known about. He tapped his fingers on the steering wheel thinking of what type of conversation do you have with an alien from another world?
“What do you know about the Witness?” Tazu asked.
Tazu looked back at him and didn’t show much emotion about the Witness. Daniel quietly waited for a answer, “He is a special human who has had contacts with us in the past. He has witnessed many account, he delivers the message to those who seek it.”
Daniel thought about his times with the Witness and remembered trusting him all the way through his time as an investigator, “My friends have helped me with my investigations and they have been so important to me. Doug my friend used to be non-believer but now joining this madness he has started to believe. He has been helping working with the Inner circle.”
Tazu’s head shot up and stared out of the window. He raised his arm and his hand opened up. A glow appeared from it and the car suddenly used it’s breaks without Daniel using them. Daniel was caught by surprised and held on like hell as the car thundered to a stop on the quiet highway. Tazu turned to him, “Where is he now?”
Daniel turned to him in shock over the stopping of the car, “He should be at home why? Is it the Inner circle?” he asked. Tazu gave a dark glare towards him, “The Inner circle is working with rouge alien species to make this weapon work and now they have one of your friends,”
Daniel eyes widened and started the car up again as he tried to make his dash to Doug in time. Nearly an hour had past and the car rolling into the street of where Doug lived. Daniel jumped out of the car and ran up to the front door as it was opened. Tazu made his way behind him. Inside the house it was wreaked, papers all over the ground, ripped furniture and there was Doug on the ground nursing an injury to his arm. Daniel came up to him, “Are you hurt, are you ok?”
“Daniel,” Doug cried in pain, “They have Susan,” he cried to his friend with fear filling his eyes. Tazu grabbed Daniel and turned him around to him, “You dug too deep and now you have come out before they get you all. We need to go to Area 51 now.” Daniel looked a look at Doug, “It’s time to finish this.”
