Hyped Up

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

The professor looked into the small pond.  He then turned to address his students.

“2054, Metasa, Inc. began making the hormones now used all over the world to help combat the plague.  The virus remains, its 98% fatality rate held in check by the weekly consumption of the hormone.   The by-products of the process have had unforeseeable side effects until now.”

“Professor Dillon?  How do we know about these side effects now?”

Professor Dillon took out a pin and pricked his finger.  The drop of blood fell into the pond and the Koi went feverish attacking it.

“Because it’s begun.”
