The Energy Discovery

Under the shroud of midnight, Eamon and Arlen stand at the periphery of a seemingly innocuous research facility. The darkened compound whispers of covert operations, and a single sign reads, “Authorized Personnel Only.” But our duo, seasoned in supernatural dealings, aren’t deterred by mere human admonitions.

Using his silver tongue, Eamon convinces the lone security guard that he’s there for an urgent energy audit, referring to them as representatives of one of Australia’s best solar energy solution providers. Arlen, rolling his eyes, plays along, producing fake credentials with a flourish of magic.

Inside, the cold, sterile surroundings are filled with the hum of machines. Arlen, with his expansive knowledge of renewable energy, directs Eamon to a secured chamber. The door is protected by a complex security system, but Eamon’s knack for mischief and bypassing barriers soon has it sliding open.

Laid out on a table are intricate blueprints detailing “Project Luminous.” It showcases a colossal machine, humming with a radiant glow, its core harbouring a volatile and potent energy. This isn’t like anything Arlen’s seen in his solar consultancies.

“I don’t like the looks of this,” Arlen mutters, scanning the documentation. “This energy isn’t stable, Eamon. It’s reckless.”

Eamon, glancing over a supplementary document, smirks. “You know, amidst all this jargon, they do reference industrial solar systems. Talking about how stable and boring they are compared to this.” He points to the pulsating energy illustrated on the blueprint. “Guess they haven’t seen what happens when you upset the natural order.”

Deciding to gather evidence, Arlen delicately siphons a sample of the potent energy source into a crystalline vial. But, as with all covert operations, something goes awry. An alarm shrieks, echoing through the empty halls. Their cover is blown.

“Time to leave,” Eamon quips, grabbing the blueprints.

With guards hot on their heels, they navigate the labyrinthine facility, relying on Arlen’s knowledge and Eamon’s cunning. Bursting into the night, they vanish in a swirl of magic, escaping by a hair’s breadth.

Safe for the moment, they find solace in a hidden grove, documents and sample in hand. Their mission is clear: uncover the truth behind “Project Luminous” and prevent an impending catastrophe.
