"Well, it's a mystery to me who sent you those notes. That wasn't us," said Janet.
"Um, who are you guys, anyway?" asked Buddy.
"Yeah, I'm pretty sure you're not Mothers Against Drunk Driving," added Dirk.
"Oh, MADD is just a cover," explained Janet. "You see, it also stands for 'Men Against Darkness Deception.'"
"Are you... a man?" asked Dirk.
"Look, we had to get a little creative to make the acronym work, okay? Just shut your face about it, kid."
"I'm still having trouble believing any of this is actually real," said Buddy. "You're saying there's actually a 'Darkness One'? And you're actually trying to stop it?"
"You wouldn't be the first one to be shocked," said Janet. She paused a moment, considering past examples. "But it's all real. The Darkness One, his Servant, the soul harvesting... everything."
"Dang," said Dirk.
"You don't even know the half of it," said Janet. "Look... follow me. I'll show you around."
