- Melissa? 
- Yes? 
- This letter has arrived for you as urgent. 
- Who sent it? 
- I don't know, it doesn't has any information on it, just your name and adress. 
- Give it to me. 

The secretary hands it to Melissa and she leaves the room. Melissa takes the letter opener and breaks a little bit of the envelope to reveal the paper. She tries not to touch it a lot to leave fingerprints on it. 

There's a knoch on the door as she says: 
- I'm busy. 
The door opens and her friend, a firefighter, says: it's urgent. 
- Come on in. 
- We've found a playing card on the fire, this morning. 
-What? Why is that so urgent? 
- Because that card says taht the aliens will invade us in five hours. 
- What the fuck are you talking about? 
- I don't know, you tell me. 
- There's even a negotiation? 
- Of coure not. It's just a warning. 
- Who comes here with a warning of an alien invasion? 
- That's what we are trying to find out. We have a couple of eye witnesses, a sailor, very cynical, who saw the weird lights on the sky. 

She went to the coffee machine and asked the firefighter if he wanted a mug full of coffee. 

- Yes, I'm gonna need it, so do you. We need to know what is happening. 
- We've brought some popular engineers on this field to check the evidences with us. 
- Did you made them sign contracts? 
- Of course, and it was like an earthquake, they almost killed us with questions before signing. And one of them is wearing a bow, like, what the fuck is going on with this people? I don't know. 
- So, please. - She went back to the sofa with two coffee mugs, could you sum up everything you know? 

Alan, the firefighter, told her the entire story, and suddenly, the office door opens, and her dad sits on the couch and starts crying. 

-What's going on dad? 
- The accupunturist, she
