Midnight Showcase - Strange Desires
Leaned up against the massive tree trunk, Michael inhaled the crisp, cool air in a series of rapid breaths. Sweat dripped off his forehead and his muscles spasmed as he took a momentary break. When he left work early that afternoon he already knew he would never return. When his bosses found out in the morning that he was gone, along with the biological serum, a red alert would immediately be issued. His lab, and all his years of research was destroyed, but it would not matter at all. He would be the main suspect and his name would be in the same sentence as thief, a traitor and who knew what else.
That is until it all fell apart.

He had worked as a scientist for the government the past 10 years, lived by the beach four more years before that and went under the name Nathaniel Hazen. Such a strange thing, one might say, to call himself Nathaniel Hazen when his given name was Michael Trelawney. Then again, there were stranger things about him than just the change of his name. For instance, he maintained a special storage station in Texas that contained items of great secrecy; hence, the change of name. But if prompted to confide in anyone the circumstances that forced him to start a new life, he knew that it would take too long to explain.
At first, he worried someone from his past would know what he was, who he was, but nothing came up to indicate his true identity. He never saw any of his people nor did he see or feel anyone following him. Even though 10 years is a long time, it still doesn’t stop one from looking over their shoulder. For the most part, he kept his life neatly tucked away, with no paper trail. He lived a quiet existence and dedicated all his energy to his research. But now that had all changed. Now that he was once again Michael Trelawney, the things he took great pains to hide would come out.
