After a UFO crash lands in a desolate area on Earth, an infant by the name of Flint, who was the only survivor on the ship, is taken in and raised in a small lab close to Area 51. As the boy grows, so does his curiosity of the outside world. A curiosity that burns so furiously, it eventually influences him to plan his successful escape. While on the run from the FBI, Flint befriends a girl named Tara and a boy named Sam. Together, they help Flint understand what things are like in the outside world and just how important friendship can really be. Back at the lab, Dr. Raynes, the doctor who oversees the research that Flint is involved with, seeks to find a way to locate where he might have gone while simultaneously trying to understand the truth behind what happened on the night of his escape.

The following story is a work in progress


 

“What’s this one?” Dr. Raynes asked as he held up an alphabet card.

“Hmmm… L,” said the little boy.

“Good. And what’s this?”

“T,”

“Very good,” he said while shuffling through cards to find the next one to hold up. “And how about this one?”

“H,”

“Nice, and this one?”

“Q”

“Great job,” the doctor said while hugging him. “You’re really getting good at this. I’m so proud of you”

The doctor stood up and made his way towards the room’s exit.

“Where are you going?” the little boy asked. Dr. Raynes stopped and looked back at him, the same way a father looks at his son.

“Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, why don’t you watch a movie?”. He stared back at him for a few seconds. “Ok?”

“Ok” said the boy.

The doctor looked back one more time before sliding his keycard into the slot and opening the door.

“Oh, hi Dr. Walter,” the doctor said. Dr. Walter stood right outside the room, leaning his back against the wall while staring into the small window of the little boy’s room.

“You’ve grown fond of him,” said Dr. Walter.

"Is that a bad thing?"

Raynes duplicated Walter’s fixed stare, admiring the pristine mystery of who the boy really is and where he came from.

“He’s not like the others,” said Dr. Raynes..

For long we've questioned the possibilities

We sought to understand something that others considered nonexistent

And now

Our questions may finally be answered
