Just dropping a quick note to see how you are. I've been a little busy with work, you know how it is. Back in the USA, I will let you know where as soon as I can.

p.s. Looked up your website, very informative

Hey! Glad to hear you made it back. I've been rather busy myself. It has been… surreal to say the least. Something is up on the home front, but dad has me in the dark.

I don't know. I might have been crazy from all that time down in that cave. But I could have almost sworn my father and Robert looked disappointed when I got of the plane.

I asked him about it, but he denies it… but…. I'm still suspicious.

Keep in touch, I still owe you that dinner. So think of where you'd like to be taken.

PS: My dad said the same thing. Hmm.

You're not wrong or crazy. I need to talk to you but things are not looking good right now. Something happened overseas… congratulations you're a father (kidding).

Getting assignment in the next few months, hoping it'll be close enough for dinner. Can't wait to see you.

As for where, depends if you're going to make me dress up or not. I could probably eat a horse. Just no healthy junk, you know how much I hate that stuff.

Don't worry. I'm not out to impress you with fancy places that charge huge amounts of money for little bites of food. You wanna eat a horse…. Hell, I'll be right there with you. Of course Robert, calls me rather unrefined for it, but hey… I've been around the world and eaten a variety of food, he can't say the same.

Oh hey, I'll be out of touch for awhile. I'm off to the Congo for a few months looking for Mokele Mbembe. Some new sightings of the long necked dinosaur. Figured why not! While I'm there I plan to see about rumors of a tribal shaman that can heal with prayer.

I'll be back around November. When I'm down there I will little to now way to check messages.

Sorry for the very late reply. I'm better at conventional mail than I am with email, I might be the only person on the planet that can say that. Robert is your brother, right? I wonder what he would think about me… let's not find out. I heard about this place in Coney Island that makes a great crab cake, I'll see if they charge extra for the mercury poisoning, sound good?

I hope you find what you're looking for on both counts or at least good evidence of it.

p.s. Don't be surprised if a little sherpa finds you with a letter from me.

Subject: Success!

November 14, 2009

Just got off the plane! My dad's assistant was waiting for me, said there was work to do. Yay me. Threw me right into negotiations for a new contract. Something about better light armor for troops. Dr. Ray is drooling over it.

Oh.. And yes… Robert is my little brother. Dad's golden child. I rolled my eyes just then…

Anyhow, crab cakes. I could use some decent food after eating grubs and the like. The sneaky damn dinosaur avoided me, not sure how you miss a several ton beast… but I got a lot of good stories from the locals. However, the shaman was a success. I found him and watched him at work. He's definitely like you all. I watched him sing in prayer and saw this injured hunters wounds heal. I'd show you a picture, but the shaman was worried that if I took his picture I'd suck away his power.

Go figure.

Mark Scotts

PS: Getting suspicious of what my dad is doing, so I hired a PI. Let you know what I hear.

Again, sorry for the late reply. I'm trying to get a new assignment and the details are a little tricky. Let me know what you find out from the PI, I might be able to help. I think maybe that Shaman is on to something, cameras are an equally great and evil invention. Good if you're looking to catch someone, bad if you're trying not to get caught.

The new armor sounds pretty nice, I could get excited about something like that. Maybe if you could let me test some out in the field, or just try some on. We can call it a birthday present since you weren't around for mine this year. Can't wait to meet your family, it actually sounds like you're a little more fond of Dr. Ray.

Anyway, I have in interview in a few days. Hopefully I'll be able to see you soon.

I did something terrible today but it's for the greater good. I just have to keep reminding myself that everything I do is for the bigger picture and that the little things are just steps toward securing the goal.

Tell me I'm not a horrible person.

Merry Christmas! It's a day prepping for meetings for me.

You a horrible person? Is that even possible? Kind of hard for me to think of the woman who got me out of that cave as horrible.

Dr. Ray seems to be on to a new polymer for the armor. He's enthusiastic about his work. You ask him a question about it and ooooh boy you better be ready for a chemistry lesson. he loves his work. Never understood how him and my dad became friends.

I… heard from the family of a woman I went to talk to. She could burn things. They told me she went missing. I hope she's okay.

Our old host from Terrorist Hotel was in the news again. An attack on a village. Sounded like he was using some sophisticated weapons. Like those rockets we found. I don't know how he got more. I saw those boxes explode just like you.

Subject: Happy New year

January 4, 2010

I haven't had the time to catch up on the news from over there. They've been keeping me so inundated with meaningless little jobs that I barely have the time to watch the news anymore. All of this cold is making me miss the sand. You wouldn't be able to recognize me anymore, my skin is so white I actually fit in over here.

When we get together you should take me on a little tour of your company. I'd really like to see these suits and the new polymer sounds interesting. I wouldn't actually mind sitting through the chemistry lesson to find out what's going to be saving my hide later on.

Do you have any details on the burning woman? Maybe I can help locate her. Don't look for her yourself, this is important.

January 15th, 2010

The family of that woman contacts me often to ask if I've heard anything. But I haven't. Seems more people have gone missing from my list. I'm getting worried.

The PI says he's on to something. He's tracking down some leads and things he could have a break through for me soon. Says my company has been in communications with someone over seas, but he doesn't know how yet. tracks are being covered well. Almost tempted to hire a hacker. Plenty of them assault my site as it is.

As for the tour. Best wait. My dad and brother are better off not knowing about you. My father asks often about new people on my site. I'm wary.

Keep safe! We still need to have that dinner.

If you can provide a list of names I might be able to track some of them down. Disguise the people on your site if you can, don't tell anyone who you've found. Thank you for not using my name, I might be in the same boat.

Are you free for dinner soon? I think we need to talk about our little friend oversees. Work has calmed down quite a bit so I have free time opening up. Let me know when you're free.

Need to talk. Heard from my PI. He sent an interesting photo to me. A must see.

I'm free for dinner just about anytime. Let me know when, I'll make sure my assistant doesn't schedule anything.
