A beep sounds off as Warner locks down the vehicle so he doesn’t wander off. No one can get in or out.
Most of the [Men in Black] black suits’ vehicles are equipped with the feature. Of course, that’s a lesson I learned the hard way...more than once.
From the trunk Warner pulls a shiny black, rectangular box. I think he’s going to open it from the top, but he slides his index finger over one of the small ends and it disappears. The end, not his finger. Warner repeats the motion on the opposite end and a large red button appears.
“Probably pretty tempting not to pocket one of those suit gadgets and try your luck as a magician in Vegas.” I smirk.
“You laugh,” he says. “But they actually have protocols in place for that. They call it the Penn and Teller Contingent.”
He just shrugs as he begins to pump the red button. With each intake of air, the box hums and whirs as he watches a tiny screen that has appeared on its top.
“There’s a trace of her DNA still here,” he announces. “Maybe we can find a trail.”
“So that’s like a bloodhound in a box? Handy.”
He tips his chin up to me. “DNA detector. Analyzes hair, bodily fluids, and even microscopic skin particles floating in the air. Anything that contains DNA, no matter how small, this device is on it.”
“Handy <i>and</i> disgusting.”
“Let’s focus on the handy,” he suggests.
