Picking his phone, Shepherd barked, “Hello!” On the other end of the phone, a voice came through asking, “Shepherd, can I speak with Martin Douglas?” “I do not know any Martin Douglas! Wrong number!” “Hold on Shepherd! This is about life and death. I am Justin Scott and I need to speak with Martin Douglas now. I know you two are working together!” Still holding the line, Shepherd turned to Martin and silently mouthed, “Justin Scott!” Martin lunged forward and grabbed the phone from Shepherd and began to yell, “Justin Scott! You knew my family was being used to birth demons into the world and you didn’t tell me! I promise you I will burn you alive and send into the grave all who are called by your name. I will kill you a thousand times!” “Martin I want the same thing you want. Meet me in New Jersey tonight. Don’t fail. I will reach you again on Shepherd’s phone. Come with all the weapons you possibly can!” When the line went dead, Martin told Agatha Brown and Shepherd what Justin Scott told him over the phone. “What if it is a set up? We have to have a backup plan,” Shepherd suggested. “Then find one! Tonight, we kill! Tonight I will avenge my husband and son!” shouted Agatha Brown. By eleven pm, Martin Douglas, Shepherd and Agatha Brown were all armed to the teeth and positioned in an old, burnt down hospital, waiting for Justin Scott. When Justin Scott showed up, he had a small army of eight men who were all armed with assault rifles. Confident with the cover Dr. Agatha Brown and Shepherd gave him and emboldened by the rage in his heart, Martin Douglas sneaked out of his position to go meet Justin Scott.

“I wasn’t sure you were going to come here going by the way you sounded. I am glad you made it Martin.” “Why did you lie to me about my family? You knew about what they were put through and you hid it from me.” “I did it to give you focus. If I had told you, you would have got yourself killed by trying to rescue them.” “Well, now that I know, I am going to do just that. Why did you call me out here Scott?” “My work here is done. For years I served The Elite and their evil mission. It got to a point where I could not take it anymore so I turned rouge, raised my own army and began to work against them. Right now I have been found out. When I set up a meeting with you and gave you some money; I was keeping a tab on you for The Elite and was also using you to work against them. Now they have found out about my clandestine activities and have passed a judgment on me and the men who follow me. Tonight I will die, but in your hands; I and these men. You will behead us and remove our heads far from our bodies; that is the only to kill us. You can shoot us, burn us, fry us and bomb us and yet we won’t die. I and the men who work for me have chosen not to die in the hands of the Elite. I have killed all the others who worked for me. It was their wish. I and these ones here have come to do your wish. After we are done, please behead us. What do you want us to do tonight Martin Douglas?”

In all his wildest imagination, Martin Douglas had not expected the sudden turn of events. He stood staring speechlessly at Justin Scott and his eight armed men. Once again Justin Scott asked, “Mr. Martin Douglas, what would you have us do tonight as our last act of service to humanity?” Finding his voice again, Martin said, “I want Crux laboratory burnt down and all those who are able to survive after what they have gone through in that lab rescued.” “There will be very few who can once again live as humans after what they have been through in that lab.” “Then kill all, especially the alien humans in the lab and rescue any who can survive.” “Consider your wish done,” said Justin Scott as he and his men hurry into their cars and then Justin remembered something and walked back to Martin. “Martin, have you called Alejandro Ignacio?” “No, I haven’t. I have been busy.” “You should have called him. He and his entire family are in some trouble. I wish I had told him the truth.” “What truth are you talking about?” “Kate Edward is alive! She is being held in a facility in this city. You will find here.” Justin gave his ipad to Martin and pointed to a facility in a map on the screen. Handing the key to the facility to Martin, he added, “In this pad, you will find out all the things you need to know about The Elite.” Turning to walk away, Justin Scott paused and said, “When you find Kate, tell her that her parents are still alive. You will find where they are in that pad. I was told to kill them but I did not. That and many others are some of my sins against The Elite. “Justin Scott!” “What is it Martin Douglas?” “You and your men will be remembered for what you will do tonight.” “I don’t want to be remembered for anything; you have no clue what I have done or what is coming your way.”

When Justin Scott and his men drove off to go destroy Crux laboratory, Martin ran back to Shepherd and Agatha Brown and narrated all he was told. With the killings which they all looked forward to having been taken from them by Justin Scott and his men, the three of them hurried off to the facility where Kate was being held. The facility was a shopping mall, Kate was somewhere in its basement. When Martin and his group made it into the basement, they found Kate chained hands and feet onto a giant metal table. Working very fast, they unlocked the chains and removed them from Kate. She was in no condition to walk, so Shepherd bore her on his back out of the basement. On their way back to the old, burnt down hospital, Agatha Brown bought food and some first aid materials to sustain Kate and treat the wounds on her hands and feet. When they got back to the old, burnt down hospital, Agatha fed Kate some food and treated her wounds before nursing her to sleep. About 1:00 am, Justin Scott and his men returned from their mission and informed Martin Douglas that the lab had been destroyed. Only four people could be saved from the lab.

“We have kept our word, Martin, now it is time to keep yours. Our lives are yours to take. Please do it quickly,” Justin Scott said with no trace of fear of death in him. “I am very sorry, Justin I can’t take a man’s life in cold blood. I can’t just behead you all! I can’t do it!” “We have been black-listed by The Elite all over the world, what will be done to us if we are caught will be worse than death. You have to take our lives. I can make it easy for you by killing my men. When I am done, all you have to do is to take my head off.” “You are a trained killer! I am just a journalist who wants his life and family back! Killing people is not my profession. I shot two men the other day, till now I keep seeing their faces.” “I will do it!” shouted Agatha Brown as she emerged from the dilapidated hospital building. “Take the lives of your men and I will behead you Scott,” she continued. “Dr. Brown I am sorry about your family. I knew they would come for you when you made that video public.” “I knew what I was doing when I made the video public, but I don’t regret it. Life was much more painful for me by being part of what The Elite did to men, women and children in their labs. Yes, my action has cost me my husband and son; but I won’t go down without giving The Elite a good fight. Kill your men Scott and let me take your life, I have a patient to care of, Kate Edwards.”
