The Germ

Fran M: Somehow the mutant GERM had gotten out of the lab. Jessica didn't think it was an accident.

Heather M: It was a nasty germ. First a cough, then a fever, and the next thing the patient would know, they were in a COMA.

Fran M: It was not an ordinary fever either, the AGUE would last several days and regular medications didn't seem to help.

Me: It was not anything she'd ever seen in any of her BIO-chem texts. She had a feeling it was going to BE one for the record books.

Fran M: She was willing to BET the inevitable outbreak would TAX public health resources to the limit.

Me: she wondered if DI, the girl who had answered the help wanted AD for a lab assistant, had anything to do with it. The girl was obviously very smart, as she had helped discover the XI baryon particle.

Fran M: A soft WHINE came from the hospital bed. Jessica was looking in on the latest victim of the mutated germ, a 12-year old girl.

Me: She was feverish and shaky, but still conscious. Unfortunately, she was as helpless as a kitten. To ADD to her humiliation, she had PEED the bed.

Fran M: Even if the lab assistant hadn't actually taken it, she was guilty of aiding and ABETting. Jessica was sure of it.

Fran M: There were SO many home remedies for fever, she had to try all of them, chewing QATS or wrapping the head in TI leaves were two of the things they tried.

Me: The girl wasn't much of a WHINER. Even when she was told she had to GO FOR blood tests at odd hours, she patiently complied.

Fran M: It was frightening to SEE the SPEED at which the disease ravaged the body.

Me: Jessica decided to try and SEEK answers from a local psychic she knew. As she gazed into her crystal ball, she said it seemed cloudy and INKY, there was no help from it.

Fran M: On the way home from the psychic, Jessica CUED up her favorite cd. It brought her spirits up, at least a DINKY bit.

Me: She also stopped at the florist, and picked up a TI plant in a JET black vase. She hoped the plant would have better chances than the girl in the hospital.

Fran M: She would put it next to the fountain that was made to look like an EA that she had in her living room and she hoped the hi FE content of her water wouldn't kill the plant. She thought it would look nice next to the photo of the GOA she had blown up and framed from her trip to Tibet also.

Me: She went into the kitchen to make some PEA soup, and almost tripped over her PUG laying in the middle of the floor.

Fran M: Jessica Tandy, NEE Smith had just gone through a divorce. She got the pug in the split. HE was a little messy, which WE assume all pugs are.

Me: After dinner, she went for a walk beside the VOE. It always helped her sort out her thoughts, NO matter how many WEE bugs liked to bite her while she walked.

Fran M: the path she took on her walk made a zig-ZAG through the park.

Me: As she left the park, she noticed a ZA parlor that was missing the AR from its sign. She went inside to let the manager know, and he rudely called her a LIAR.

Fran M: Not one to take insults well, she insisted he come outside. Sure enough the blank spot was there, looking like a HILAR mark on a tree.

Me: "HO HO HO" she laughed, and his face turned to one of WO at being proven wrong.

Fran M: When she saw that the front of the shop had a lot of WEEDS, she realized they might not be doing so well.

Me: So she got a ZANY idea....

Fran M: Add PEAS to the menu and make Wednesday nights WHINERS night with discounts on certain items.

Fran M: Okay, so it wasn't the most brilliant idea, but she was a scientist after all and not a marketing person.

Me: As she walked home, she again tried to decide who in her department would be EVIL enough to unleash the horrible germ on society.

Fran M: Was it Forrest GUMP, the weird guy in the fungus lab?

Me: Maybe it was BO WO, the strange oriental lab tech.

Fran M: You can bet your BA it was someone on the ROTA.

Me: She decided she was just going to FLAT out ask the ABO that worked on the night crew.

Fran M: She put on her best TWEEDS and got ready for work. She decided she would NOT rest until she knew who the culprit was.

Me: As she LET herself into the lab....

Fran M: She realized the germ had been released with the INIA that was in the lab last week. "AR we ever going to learn?" She lamented.
