Tucked away in the back of the good doctor’s journal was an envelope. The envelope contained a card, and inside that card was a handwritten message:
My Dearest Thomas,
1,000 years ago, mankind knew the Earth to be flat,
500 years ago, we knew that the Sun went round the Earth,
6 months ago, you knew there were no such things as ghosts.
Can you imagine what you might know tomorrow!!
All my love, and best of luck in your spooky new job,
I have no idea who this Persephone is. I haven’t seen her name mentioned in any any of the other files or journal entries I have read. Yet another mysterious name to add to the list, I guess.
The message written in the card seemed familiar to me. After some digging around on the internet, I found that it is remarkably similar to a speech given by the character played by Tommy Lee Jones in the 1997 film Men in Black.
The envelope from the journal is postmarked July 1987 – C.R.
