Lien is a man who lives in the deserted part of California, which is his birth town. He loves the quiet and peace that the desert gives. His home is a place where the mind can be at peace. He never liked horses or cows but just the opened fields of land for miles and miles. He enjoys watching dust storms and tumble weed, the wild storms that would hit ever so few and far between. The property was easy to manage because it was natural and easy to care for. He loves his coffee, with lots of cream and sugar. He loves the smell of the dirt after it has been raining or with the morning dew. He has been in the house ever since he was a child. He is well educated and speaks proper English, and is a CEO of a restaurant business where he cooks.
He has a down to earth quality that most people love. Appreciation of long jogs and working in the city, he often keeps two cars filled with gas at all times. At age 55 many people are surprised of his physic that he has managed to maintain since his military years. When he got out of the military he was never lucky enough to find a woman who could cook so he went in the restaurant business. A birthmark on the back part of his knee, which is an unusual place to have a birth mark for most people, is one of the things remarked about him they always think that it resembles a gecko.
Ashley is 52 and looks great and believes in keeping fit. She works for the Top FBI agents over Alien project, and works closely with all alien activity. She loves dancing and going for long rides and hiking up high on the hillside to view the city below. She loves picnics and beaches. Never really been married and has no children. Her whole life is around work which she loves. She is very feminine, small, petite and curvy at the same time. Her hobbies are jogging and movies and long rides through the country side of town. On this day she had a lot of energy, so she was eager to complete her work assignment and go out for the long awaited jog. She needed to relieve some stress. Once she was home she showered and put her jogging outfit on and headed out for the run. While jogging her music stops which sometime it did because of roaming she continued jogging and singing in her mind as sweat poured, she slowed down to a fast walking pace. Eventually, she stopped for a rest by a bench. She saw another jogger tying his shoe and admired him, his physic and beautiful purple eyes with black natural wavy hair he looked like an older model that was well kept for an older man. He was sweating and his smell was that of fresh woodsy aroma, which made him even more attractive, nothing like a handsome mature man and the right smell to go with him. She wondered if this was just him taking a jog in another area, because she never noticed him before, but on this day he was just perfect in every way with a physic that is not found on most middle age men. She couldn’t help but to dream about what type of person he was, was he a banker? an attorney?, a CEO of a big corporation? Was he single? As he jogged out of view she smiled from the warm thoughts that he brought to her, that she really had not had the time for in a long time.
In days and weeks that went by she noticed him often and it became a habit to see him and view him from afar. One day she was sitting and resting and took a sip of her water, and she noticed he was standing by her and when he spoke his voice was a smooth baritone, “You enjoy your jog today?” he said, with a smile.
“Yes, as I do every day.” She answered, smiling back. “It’s funny how jogging can take your mind off of all stressful things and bring it to life with a kick!” This was rather unusual for her to start a conversation with a stranger, but she couldn’t help how attracted she had become to him, after all this wasn’t her first time noticing him and was a great surprise when he came up to speak with her. Her mornings now where taking time to smell and look awesome before going for a jog because she knew she would run into him. She felt comfortable in talking with him. She could only hope that he felt the same way.
Lien felt as though he could drink a gallon of water in one sitting in this rest period of his jogging and soon he was off to jog again and knew that he shouldn’t drink that much water for obvious reasons but since he was near the end of his jog he figured it was fine. He watched as this woman passed by him each morning jogging and for some reason they seem to always catch up with each other in the same area almost every day and he wondered why he hadn’t noticed her until now. Maybe she just decided to take up jogging or she just moved in the area? It was weird for him because he never really noticed her or thought much to glance for a mere half a second before. He continued a fast pace walk and noticed his shoes were untied so he kneeled down to tie them. He could feel the drips of sweat dropping from his forehead as the tied his shoes. Finally he was done and took off jogging towards the office to pack up and go home for the day. He liked working out after work and since his job was so close to the jogging area he would always pack his gym bag and get dressed for jogging in the men’s room.
They met many times for jogging and each time looked forward to the preference of going for coffee or breakfast and great conversations. She realizes he not only is a good listener, but remembers everything with her including the small reactions to things she liked or didn’t like. She noticed one day in which they had planned a picnic, he had a tattoo like marking on the back of his knee. It was an interesting alien sign that she had noticed on writings taken from the aliens that she was in contact with in her work activity. When she questions his birthmarks familiar resemblance to a symbol of alien species he laughs loudly and says it’s just some weird birth mark shape and everyone who sees it tries to describe what they feel it is. She laughed about her crazy reference to it and almost felt embarrassed.
A male is being abducted and an alien seed planted in his brain and months later he begins to transform into an alien type species and his actions change from human to something very out of the ordinary from any human being. He was adopted on earth and lived as a human amongst the people and no one was aware of his secret that was hidden. Human features and traits were of natural origin because he was abducted his mind could form what is called the transformation to an alien species, now aliens were on their way back for him and she couldn’t find him!! She awakes in a cold sweat and hated every time she would have that same dream because it would take a drink and cold shower just to calm the terror that the dream always caused. She never paid attention to them because she figured it was just a back lash of working so long with the species.
Ashley stops by Lien’s place one day to surprise him. They would meet sometimes to go out for a movie or take turns cooking at each other’s homes or they would go for long rides out in the country and ride to where they would hike and could see what the whole country look like far below them. They would take pictures and enjoy communication on social media when they would miss each other during the week or on weekends when they had to work long shifts. This time she saw the lights over his field directed toward his house, but the reflection and glare prevented her from seeing anything more. She knew it was Alien oriented so rushed up quickly.
As Lien lays on the sofa in his living room he notices two orbs that traveled from the outside into the inside of his home and they were white and this particular night they consumed the whole room with a bright light. He is lifted and begins to float out he is aware of his floating. The area becomes loud with a strange high pitched sound almost deafening. He could not hear himself think. “This is real! OH MY GOD!! This is really happening??!! NO, this isn’t real! NO!” He arrives to the living room glass window and is released on to the floor, the phone rings, “Hello,” Lien answers.
Ashley walks up and hears a man on the speaker talking in a high pitched language about her, Lien notices her listening, when she sees his face his eyes are the form of a snakes eyes. She understood the Alien language. They were going to come back for him and they needed him for more tests. Ashley didn’t know how to react even though he saw her and her whole being said to run and don’t look back but she just stood there and stared and didn’t care if he saw her. She knew that he wasn’t the typical every day man she was used to meeting, he was always special and vibrant and exciting and now she wondered what to expect from him now. Now that she has heard him and the details of his phone call with an alien species. The one major big deal for her was what was he going to do? Was he going to turn evil and kill her? Run and never be found again, make her leave and not explain anything?! “What?” she said, aloud and rather surprised that it came out calmly because she was feeling everything but calm at that moment.
Lien just stared also, “Why did you stop by?” he asked, wondering why she was there.
She was puzzled and a little hurt that he was keeping something personal from her, and after all that she had divulged to him and he sat taking all her private secret information in, which meant that she must have trusted him enough to release the information freely. Now came his time. “Oh nothing, just wanted to come over and see if you wanted to join me in a coffee break, I didn’t mean to intrude.”
“No, you are not intruding.” He said, wondering if this was a good time to explain what just happened. His nerves were like jelly and all that he had seen shown in his eyes.
As they went in her car and took off for an outing brunch, it was silence and both were in their own thoughts, once at the restaurant the conversation started slowly and then he told her everything that happened in soft tones so that no one else could eavesdrop on their conversation. She told him before of her connection and what she did for a living causally but she gave more details of her work and wanted to see what she could do, if anything to help and would get information as to why they would want to abduct him and what to possibly do to avoid it. They agreed to figure out this thing together no matter how long it took.
The next few days Ashley was on a mission to get into the private sector of the office room where the alien species dwell and after many, what seemed like hours she finally was able to get clearance to see them, it took well thought out planning and figuring out but having worked there for so long she knew just what would get her in. Once in she wanted to ask why they would be on a mission for abduction if he never had previous memories of this happening before. Alien then answered Ashley saying it’s hard to say if one cannot remember something, if there memory is taken. He may have an implant that is ready for completion and they need him for more tests.
“So, what is the way we can locate and discard this, so he won’t have to worry about abduction?” She asked, hoping for a real answer. He simply replied, “There is not a way.”
Well, of course he wasn’t going to divulge that information and now that she asked it, it was a silly question when all she had to do was get him to get x-rays to find the device and have it removed. They did and this resolved there problem. They continued to date and enjoyed each other’s company.
One day Lien was out and notice his longtime friend, and decided to chat for a while and as they were chatting Lien noticed weird things about his friend of 20 years, even though he looked the same his actions and little facial expressions and habits were unusually different. His mannerism was off, as a matter of fact, the whole line of conversation was different! He would avoid family topics, or conversation about their old hang out places, past events that they would love to always talk about whenever they missed seeing each other for any length of time. This time it was weird, his friend mentioned how a strange phenomenon happened to him with all the bright lights and how it took him and was due to come back soon for him and that he in a weird way actually was intrigued on how this would end.
After that conversation that day neighbors hadn’t seen him since. Eventually Lien had to report his friend as a missing person. The police said, after thorough searches that the friends where a bouts were unknown. His body was never found.
When Lien explained everything to Ashley they just looked at each other in a long stare and then slowly embraced each other in a relief that they were able to avoid the terror and sorrowful that there friend was not able to.
