“Yes, yes I know I’m busting our budget but we have a monster epidemic going on. I need to hire more investigators.” Brian Tipene explains as he sits with his feet upon a small desk.
“No, we are the only investigators right now.” A small brunette woman walks into the room. Her face hangs as tears fall from the corners of her eyes. Brian’s gut sinks before he excuses himself from the phone call.
“Susan, what’s going on?”
Susan brushes the tears from her face and struggles to talk.
“Please, don’t tell me something happened to Alan.”
Susan stumbles. Brian struggles to move from behind his desk but catches her before she falls.
“My god, this is not good. What happened to him?”
After some time Susan explains that Alan was involved in a chemical accident within his truck. She relayed that he was stripped to the bone.
Brian swallowed hard. He was responsible for the death of his brother-in-law now what was he going to do?
Brian helped Susan, called her family, then sat within his small sportscar. “I have to check out the scene,” he thought to himself. “He told me he picked up an odd box.” Guilt washed over him as he started the car but he couldn’t drive forward.
“I have six agents now. They are all family and friends. What have I got myself into…”
“…Brian?” A CB radio installed under the dash broke the thought. “I just heard about Alan. What are we going to do?”
Brian picked up the CB receiver and replied. “Tom, we are going to figure out what happened. What do you know?”
Tom explained the details of the accident. He explained the chaos when the firefighters opened the door of the truck.
“They said a green goo fell from the truck. They talked about bringing in the FBI but apparently they got impatient and opened the door. The blob of green goo then chased off the rescuers.”
“Are you serious?”
“Yes, that’s what I heard. What are we going to do?”
Brian snapped out of self-reflection and back into work.
“We are going to figure out what this is and defeat it. That’s what we do.” Brian pulled from the driveway of his small home and headed toward the accident scene.
