Neo was sitting in a small room. They had had him blindfolded during the drive, so he had no idea where he was. But he knew exactly why he was here. It was that insane FBI agent, Banjonator. But how he had managed to convince anyone Neo was a terrorist, he had no idea.
Someone opened up the door.
Neo: Let me go! I didn't do anything!
FBI Guy: Come with me. Banjonator wants to speak with you.
So Neo followed the FBI guy to Banjonator. He was in an interrogation room, waiting for Neo. Neo sat down, and the FBI guy left.
Banjonator: Here we are again. Only now that I have you detained as a terrorist, you won't be leaving.
Neo: Except we both know I'm not a terrorist.
Banjonator: That's all a matter of perception.
Neo: Which one of us are you trying to fool? I didn't do anything.
Banjonator: Oh, but that's where you're wrong. You see, you did
do something. Something quite extraordinary.
Neo: And that would be...?
Banjonator: Don't play dumb. I think we've had our cat-and-mouse, battle of wits bit for long enough. You're trying to hide from me something I already know.
Neo: If you already know, why have me labeled as a terrorist and bring me in for questioning?
Banjonator: What really happened on that day?
Neo: I died.
Banjonator: As I suspected.
Neo: You... you don't surprised?
Banjonator: Oh, were you expecting that to throw me off guard? You expected me to not believe you?
Banjonator: What you expected was to tell me the truth, in the hopes that I would dismiss it as absurd. Anyone else would. Of course.
Neo: O... Okay then. I died. What now? What were you expecting to gain from that?
Banjonator: That's only part of it. One piece of the puzzle. As it happens, another piece of the puzzle, one quite unexpected, revealed itself last night. As I was in front of my house.
Neo: You were stalking me?!
Banjonator: Don't act surprised. I had to keep an eye on you. But I saw something I didn't expect to see. A ghost.
Neo's mind was whirling. Somehow this guy was figuring everything out. It felt strange for some reason. All of the things that had been happening to him and his friends these past few months, things which he knew shouldn't be possible, and now the FBI
was becoming a part of it. He had the part of his life where the supernatural happened, where he tried to stop Evil, and he had the normal part of his life, the part that made sense. He could feel the two parts coming together.
The incident with Aryk at the school was tragic, but at least the reality of it had, for the most part, been kept under wraps. No one knew. No one knew there was an evil entity out there trying to destroy everyone. No one knew there were ghosts. No one knew about any of the things they had seen these past few months.
But this man. This man was about to let all of it out of the bag. And if anyone believed him... how would they react? Their normal lives would be completely turned around, just like Neo felt was happening to his own life.
Neo: A ghost. Okay. Where does this fit into your puzzle?
Banjonator: It's life after death. This ghost. You returning. That
is why you're here. You're going to tell me how you do it.
Neo: Excuse me?
Banjonator: How you resurrect the dead.
Neo: Resurrect the... I'm sorry, you've clearly got this all mixed up. I can't resurrect the dead.
Banjonator: The proof is right there, kid. Now I already said it's time for us to quit playing games. You're going to tell me everything you know, or you aren't leaving here.
Neo: Listen, I don't know how to bring back the dead! Okay? I got lucky! That's it!
Banjonator: Lucky? Lucky you came back to life? Lucky you brought a ghost into your house?
Neo: I didn't... I didn't make that ghost come to my house. I don't know what it wants.
Banjonator: And you expect me to believe you?
Neo: It's the truth.
Banjonator: So it's just a big coincidence that there's a ghost haunting the house of some kid who came back from the dead. That right?
Neo: I didn't say it was a coincidence.
Banjonator: Then what is it?
Neo: I don't know!
Banjonator: Then I'm gonna send you back to your detainment room, and we'll talk more tomorrow.
Neo: About what
?! There's nothing left to talk about! You know everything that I know.
Banjonator: We'll see about that.
Banjonator stood up out of his chair. But just as he did, the lights suddenly went out.
Banjonator: What the hell happened?
He walked over to the door and tried to open it, but it was locked. Just then, he heard a voice, softly whispering in his ear.
Ghost: I warned you.
