Chapter 2 – The Alien of the Phoenix 2

Doug was sitting in his office drinking his warm coco. The middle aged man turned his neck to get the pains out of it and ready for the day of work. A tap on the door was heard and Daniel and Sonia came inside.

“Come in I’ve only arrived at work today. I heard about your tales with Jack. You went to a farm with him?”

“Yes we saw a dead body with limp body parts. I didn’t have a great time having lunch after that with Jack. You called us here for a reason. What’s going on with you lately?”

Doug smiled and leaned back in his chair,”I want some help breaking into a government department section,” he asked the pair.

” You like us to do what?” Daniel asked sitting down as Sonia closed the door to his office shut.

“I know this is the type I expect you to ask me but with recent events in my life I am prepared to believe that maybe some strange things are out there in this world. But don’t think I’m going to believe in every green little alien story you come up with,”

“Why do you want us to help you break into this department?” Sonia asked.

Doug leaned in from his chair and covered his face thinking of how stupid his idea it was, “I went to one of those dinners that I get invited to and looked inside of the rooms when I thought I saw someone at the door. There I noticed there were photos that I was working on but there were different to mine. My work has been photoshopped before been giving to my team. So I want to go in and take copies of them. I just want to know why my work was edited before I given them.”

“Well they are likely to be hiding something if they have edited heir work. Why do you want to do this?” Daniel asked wondering. Doug wasn’t he type of character to be thinking of this or planning a break in.

“Due to recent events and and my encounters with the men in Black I’ve become a little more cautious about my own security. I just wanna make sure that nothing is going to happen to me again. Don’t tell Susan that I’m planning this she will not be very happy with me at all.” Doug told the pair.

“I can come with you to this break in plan of yours. We just need to make sure that we are safe about it and we do know the men in Black are watching us from time to time so when do you want to do this?”

“Can we try tonight I can just say to Susan I’m going out with you and Sonia somewhere I think she might believe that. The security to the department section is not that bad I do have some clearances to it but there are just a couple areas that I don’t have access to but I think we should be able to work that one out. ” Doug suggested.

“Daniel and I can help you for the necessary work. My suggestion would be to not tell anyone in your workplace about this and as soon as we take photocopies of it we might have a look around the place and see what else is there. What was that thing that you thought you saw at the door?” Sonia asked.

I thought I saw something at the door way with a hand or someone moving the door open or closed. It was hard to notice but it was something I can’t quite recall at the moment.”

The three of decided to go later in the night to find out what the photos contained and find out anything else.

Doug and  Sonia waited for Daniel to come out of the car later that night outside the department building. Doug adjusted his coat as it was a cold night and stepped up to the front doors and looked around for a security card in his pocket. He popped out and swiped the door as it opened up slowly for the three to sneak inside. It was quite strange that the room was quiet and that it seemed a little too easy for them to get inside. They looked around the area where the dinner was taken place where Doug was before.  He noticed the stairs that they came upstairs to the rooms. Doug and Daniel went up upstairs with Sonia stayed in the dinner room to make sure that no one was around the climbed up the stairs and turn the corner and Doug pointed to the second room on the right where he saw the mysterious hand on the door or on the door itself.

“Let’s go inside there and see where those photos are. I just hope they haven’t moved which would take this longer to find them,” Doug whispered to Daniel.

The two sneaked into the room and scanned the area. Doug went up to the office section of the room where he saw the drawers and looked around on the table to see if the photos were there. He looked under the desk where he saw some of the photos where he remembered from earlier.

“Come look at these photos Daniel. We will make copies here with the portable scanner I have in my bag here,” replied Doug.

Doug took out the scanner and started scanning photos as Daniel looked at some of the Photos himself next to the desk.

“There are too many photos here to look at and analyse. We will have to scanned them and then take them back to my house to check which ones are important and which ones are not. Let’s just make sure we can get this done quickly.” Daniel answered back.

There was noise at the door and both men turned away quickly and rushed behind the desk. A figure came inside and they were caught out.

“I never thought that you Doug would do such a thing but I expect you here to be the first one to break in here,” said the figure to the pair.

Doug knew the person, “Trevor, what are you doing here?”

“I was here doing some paperwork in the other rooms and I had some noises and discovered you here too. What are you two doing here? Are you looking for the photos.” Trevor asked.

“I am trying to find out why these originals are not the ones that I get at my department. I want to know why this is happening this is part of my work and I want to know why Trevor. Do you know more than what you’re telling us?  Why, why are you here?” Doug asked.

“For starters Doug do you even understand why you have been invited to these dinner parties? Why you have been coming to these parties since your promotion more often than before. I think you don’t know why you been coming to the parties. I think it’s important for you to know,” Trevor replied.

Daniel was curious about the dinner parties and anted to know too, “Do tell us Trevor. I would to know too.”

“Daniel you would be the last person to even be included in these dinner parties. These dinner parties are part of the outer circle. There are two circles where these these departments come together and you are being slowly invited to come into the circle. The circles is a part of the discussions about UFO and aliens. There is some people you can trust and others that you can’t,” Trevor explained.

“Why am I being invited into and what get I get from it?” Doug asked.

“Being part of the the outer circle allows you information that is not made public. Not even to your own department Doug. The importance of this is this circle means that you are protected from the inner circle the true inner circle that hides information to the public about UFO’s and aliens,” Trevor explained further.

“Why would Doug want to be be part of the outer circle and what is the threat from the inner circle. Can you confirm or deny that aliens are real and existing on this planet?” Daniel asked.

“I only hear stories about alien contacts Daniel so I can’t really confirm anything about that. With the protection would be from the men in Black. I heard rumours that you two have had contact with them. Especially that you’re hanging around with Daniel doing all this investigation work. My advice to you from someone with in the outer circle would be to join up and get that protection from the men in black. This protection would also cover your wife Susan. Think of her, think of her and some of the dangers of you are putting her in,” replied Trevor.

“Why are you helping us?” Asked Doug looking down at the photos.

“You’re a good man Doug. I’m part of the outer circle for protection and once upon a time I did investigate into alien contacts.  But as you know Daniel this is a dangerous job and I have a family to look after and I can’t afford to do that any more. I can help you on your way with your investigations but you you need to be more careful. Remember that.”

“The scanning is nearly complete. I have one more to do. What do I have to in order to join the outer circle? ” Doug asked.

“Your public contacts with Daniel will have to stop. You can see friends of his but you have to do it in secret. Phone calls will be traced. I learnt that the hard way. If you get caught, you will be removed from the outer circle and you will disappear.i mean really disappear from everyone.”

Daniel got a txt message from Sonia from his phone as he check it “Incoming: Men in Black. Hidden myself outside in the car. get out!”

He looked up to Doug and Trevor,  “Men in black are in the building. We have to go now,”

“I can’t be seen with you two. We will go out the back of the building through one of the side doors,” Trevor replied.

As Doug was looking through the room for anything to take as clues Daniel heard a voice from somewhere, “Take the papers in the corner on the chair.”

“Who told me to take papers in the corner on the chair? Daniel asked.

“No one said that,” Doug answered busily in the room.

“Someone said that to me but what was that?” Daniel answered walking over and seeing some papers on the chair. He grabbed them as the three of them took off and entered the room as they glared off the men in black heading into the room they were in. They stood behind the door to hide from them. There could hear voice from them.

“It must have been them,” Trevor suggested on the voice.

“No this voice was younger,” replied Daniel.

Doug’s face froze as it was the same two figures that visited him at his office. They looked around the room scanning for anything and looking for something. The alien man in black turned around and looked at the human figure.

“He is not here. He must’ve disappeared again. It is becoming difficult to find this person,” he told him.

“He is appearing more often. He will reveal himself when the time comes. I know it I can feel it in my bones. He must be found and dealt with. Before anyone else finds him, he will be stopped and he will disappear. Come with me back outside for he is long gone now. He would have noticed that you were coming. He would have sensed you,” answered the human man in black.

The men in black exited the room and headed down the stairs. Trevor pointed to outside the room and Daniel and Doug followed them out towards a fire exit where they down the stairs saw the side doors.

“Be more careful next time you two. I might see you again in another dinner party. There is one next month and that’s when they might invite you into the other circle. Good luck with your investigation Daniel,” said Trevor as he parted ways with them.

Doug saw the car with Sonia inside on the corner of the street in the distance,   “We should check out those papers that we found and those photos to. This could take a while.”

“I agree. We’ll work on this during the night. Let’s go and find Sonia and fill her in,” replied Daniel.

They sped walked over the street to arrived to go to Daniel’s house to discover what they found.

The long night had set in for Daniel, Doug, and Sonia as they looked over the photos and papers that they found at the department. Doug rubbed his eyes not used the late nights.

“I don’t know how the two of you do these Kate nights and I’m sure you have done this many times. These photos were the ones where that sighting was when you were doing the Childstar skull case, wasn’t it?”

“Yeah that’s the one and you do get used to the late nights Doug. These photos were never released but for the ones take in space, these were photos were photoshopped and given to you a couple weeks. I suggest these UFO were either unexplained or he real thing. It’s hard to tell you know,” Daniel said.

“Look at this guys. I found something in the papers. There are two Starchild skulls. One here is noted as having died and as for the second one on the right is noted as missing aka wanted. This must the alien child they are looking for,”

Daniel had a brainwave and sat down reading the papers. He remembered the voice telling him to find the papers, “I meant to find these notes. Someone led me to this. The voice in the room told me to pick them up knowing it had something important for us. That voice was the alien child.”

Doug sipped some coco standing behind him looking at the two skulls, “I didn’t hear those voices and I was with you and Trevor.

“he only wanted to talk to me and only me. He’s been leading me around these cases so I can connect the clues. The men in black, did you notice when they were looking for us they said he. Eh we’re never looking for us. only he, the alien child. The alien child was sensing they were coming but wanted to make sure I got the message and as soon as I did he disappeared. They want him dead for some reason,” Daniel explained.

“They don’t want stock tact him so that’s why they drove me off a road and threatened you Doug. We must be getting closer than ever to him,”Sonia added.

Doug laughed to himself and shaking his head, “What would this alien child so to speak have to give to us if he is real. First there’s missing limped bodies, black eyed children running around and now this alien child popping up giving voice only messages to Daniel. This is doing my head in.”

“I’m the one hearing the voices and I’m not going crazy. This should be doing my head in the most. What’s the other note that those papers say?” Daniel asked Sonia.

“the other note suggested that this alien escaped from somewhere. If he’s wanted either he’s done something wrong or he’s on the run. I think he’s on the run,” Sonia said.

“We’ll I’m going home now to explain to Susan why I spent the half the night with you two. Don’t stay up too late and don’t go all crazy on the theories,” Doug replied.

Doug headed outside of Daniel’s study room and Sonia looked at the UFO image over the park where they first started the investigations into the alien child.

“We know he was in that UFO but I wonder where that craft is if he’s on the run. I better we should hear Doug’s advice and go to bed. I’ll see you in the morning,” Sonia walking out of the room.

Daniel’s turned to the photos and looked at the notes and papers on the desk, “I will find you soon, I have to,” he said to himself.

Early in the morning and Daniel Phoenix’s mobile phone was buzzing. Daniel got up slowly very tired and not knowing what he was doing. He slipped over some notes on the floor and land on his face.

“Shit, this is too early for me,” he complained as he picked up his phone.

“Jack why are you calling this early?” He asked on the phone.

“It’s not my fault that you stayed up all night like you normally do. I’m driving to your house. Get ready in ten minutes,” Jack said.

Daniel pulled myself up from the floor rubbing his head half tired, “What is this about?”

“Got a call from Bruce the truck driver. He’s found something really strange. He didn’t say much but was quite worried about it. He said we should check this out now.”

“Ok I’ll be ready. I’ll take a coffee with me to wake up better,” Daniel answered.

Soon enough Daniel walked outside and saw Jack driving up next to him and he climbed inside, “This is early and cold to be outside. Turn this heater on,” replied Daniel.

“I heard about your break in helpings with Doug from Sonia during last night. At least you didn’t get caught like how we first met,” joked Jack.

“yeah we nearly got caught by the men in black but this time they weren’t looking for us but for the alien child. I’m sure of this. Where is Bruce?” He asked.

Jack turned on the radio in his car, “He’s at a weight in station on the highway.”

“What’s a weight in station?”

“It’s where they weight in trucks so their load is safe and legal. He’s stopped out there and has told us to meet us there. It is something he said he found so we’ll be there soon,” Jack answered.

The car driving on the highway turned off and saw Bruce standing outside of his long loading truck waving them into see him. They came out and Bruce came up to them.

“So you have something to show us. What was it that you wanted us to see.” asked Daniel holding his coffee.

“When I start work in the mornings I come here to the weight in to make sure that my stock is correct and the right weight. When I came to load my truck up I noticed that the wage scale actually showed that there was something on the scale itself. I wen over to investigate it and that was when I saw something weird. I thought that it was the mistake. I thought it was, it was broken. That I was wrong. You should go over there with me and see what’s up with it. it might surprise you,” Bruce said.

Daniel and Jack tailed Bruce as he wandered over to the weight in area where the scales were clearly seen with nothing on the truck.

“The scale might be broken you know,” Jack suggested.

“I’m still yet to understand why I’m here,” Daniel said.

Bruce walked over to the weight in area and lifted up his hand and moved his hand in the air until it hit something. A loud bang like the side of a truck was heard. Jack and Daniel mood changed to shock, “It’s invisible there’s something here. The scales show that.”

“My god the trucks are invisible.” Daniel said fishing in his pocket.

He grabbed out his scanner device and Bruce looked at it, “What’s  that toy you got that mate?” Bruce asked.

“it’s a special special scanner that shows up certain things. Much like the one that my friend Hayden Norman has. Aren’t you supposed to be catching up with him soon over the bodies?” Daniel replied looking towards Jack.

“I will be talking to him soon. He’s making his way up here for a short trip with Anya his assistant.”

“Now like his toy this has the handy ability of playing with electricity and see if I can do this,” Daniel said as he pointed the scanner towards the invisible truck. Some flashes of power covered and shows the outlines of the truck as Bruce and Jack stepped.

“You’re lucky it’s still early in the morning or people might see this fantasy stuff,” Bruce said.

Daniel turned the electric charge higher as he closed his eyes and his head away from the sparks. The invisible truck started to appear in sight. He lowered his scanner to see a complete black painted truck on the weight in scale.

“I can’t believe it. A invisible truck. Is that how they have been moving stuff across without knowing?” Jack asked.

“This explains the second body. How it appeared from nowhere on the road. It fell off one of the invisible trucks by mistake. Maybe the invisible ones are the ones who hold the secrets compared to ones that don’t.”

Jack jogged back over to his car and pulled out a bag out of the boot and walked over back to Daniel and Bruce, “I have some gloves in the bag for you all. Don’t touch anything with your bare hands. We don’t know what’s in the truck.”

Jack then turned to the back of the truck and decided to open the doors to see what was inside. Daniel and Bruce came along to help open the left-hand door of the truck to see what was there. There inside was six broken chairs and beds that contained two bodies with missing limps. Much like the ones they have been finding.

“A number of people have broken out of here. It’s unknown if they were human or not,” Daniel mentioned looking inside.

“Those chairs look  like for children or teenagers you know. It could those black eyed children,” Bruce suggested rubbing his head thinking to himself.

“Heh, you could be a paranormal investigator,” smiled Jack.

“And that is a very good thought Bruce. It explains why the black eyed children are very suss about the trucks and keep their distance from them. The story that I remember from other about this case is that these black eyed children were hybrids from alien creation. Whatever government is doing this, they are kidnapping them. They never created them. As for the alien child, I think the government had a hand in it or should I say the inner circle had a hand. “

“Bruce, seeming you are here can you check the truck front and see if this truck is working or not. Daniel, can you see the beds are suited for those missing limp bodies. What are they doing with these bodies?” Jack wondered.

Bruce walked off the back of the truck while Daniel eyed off the beds with the two bodies, “Something tells me that they are looking for these bodies. I think the government is cleaning up something,” he commented.

Jack picked up his phone, “Hey Hayden, Jack here. Don’t come to my house. I want you to come to the highway at where weight in centre is. I’ll send you the address to get here. Yep, you can help us here. Thanks.” Jack said on the phone.

“Hayden is coming over for some fun investigating? Am I not good enough?” joked Daniel.

“He has a sense of humour,” smiled Jack.

“Oh shit, what on earth?” shouted Bruce from the front of the truck.

Daniel and Jack heard it and came jumped off the back of the truck to run around to the front. Bruce was found standing back where they viewed a dead body driver in the seat.

“So someone did break out of the truck or something,” Jack noted looking at the body.

They weren’t sure what was going to happen next and what was going to happen.
