Now the story continues…
The boys gasped and turned slowly.
The found a young man dressed in a black suit smiling at them. On his hips lay holstered a huge pistol. The kids began backing away. The man raised his arms in the air and went down on one knee, making sure the kids could see him eye to eye.
“Hey! Don’t worry, guys. I won’t hurt you.”
Gary and Roger stopped in their tracks. The man continued smiling at them as he put one hand inside his pocket and fished out a badge.
“You see kids, I’m Agent Billy. You are safe with me.”
Gary spoke softly.
“Do you know what that face was? And our friend, he has disappeared. He was screaming, and..”
“Yes, I know that kids. Okay, first things first, what are your names?”
“I’m Gary and this is Roger. And our friend Kye is missing.”
Billy stood up and walked towards the kids.
“Okay, we will find Kye. I promise. All I need to know is, do you trust me?”
Gary looked at Roger. Roger nodded slowly.
“We trust you Agent Billy.”
Billy smiled again and adjusted his glasses.
“I have a camp set up close by, where my partner is waiting for me. If someone knows how to get Kye back, its my partner. Come, lets go to the camp. Its not safe out here. Just keep your eyes peeled, okay?”
The two boys nodded in unison and began following closely behind Billy, who led them deeper into the woods. In a few minutes, the boys found themselves facing a huge hollow tree, surrounded by perimeter lights. In front of the tree, the boys saw a ghostly figure sitting cross legged facing them. Billy ruffled the boys’ hair.
“That’s my partner, Special Agent Perseus.”
