Here is a story of innocence, admiration, compassion, and true friendship. Aliens from a distant solar system have taken an unprecedented journey to our world, Earth on a mission of discovery and unacquainted challenges. Two alien beings specifically chosen for this mission each possess a unique capability that no human has seen before. The covert team of interstellar expeditioners make a successful stealth landing in the United States of America late at night in a mountainous forested area in California. They are on a scientific surveillance mission that becomes compromised when a very curious person happens upon the alien spacecraft's covert landing site in the dark woods. The human is confronted by circumstance and the situation becomes unnerving for that innocent individual. Will the human simply vanish from existence, perhaps abducted and never heard from again? Are the intentions of the aliens aggressive and hostile? Will the aliens be able to complete their historic mission? If fate would have them meet, what would it all be for? Only destiny knows.
