Ghosts: The Lab


As guest bumble their way about the house, Dr. Viiiii continues to work in his lab.

How rude!

He should really attend to his guests!

~~~ *a whisper * Dr. Viiiii

Dr. Viiiii startles, handlebar moustache trembling.

“Who’s there?”

I drift around the laboratory tables, the beakers, the burbling goo.

Dr. Viiiii’s eyes dart through me, past me.

~~~ Dr. Viiiii, the comet approacheth.

“Comet? Igor – is that you?”

~~~ The comet approacheth.

~~~ Beware the comet.

“Beware the comet.”

Dr. Viiiii repeats. Good. It’s working.

~~~ The earth is in danger.

~~~ People are afraid.


~~~ You can profit from fear.

Dr. Viiiii shakes his head, so I repeat it.

~~~ You can profit from fear.

~~~ Make anti-comet pills. I fade into the peeling wallpaper.

Dr. Viiiii’s eyes clear. He grabs a beaker.

“I will make anti-comet pills.”

~~~ Mwah…mwah…mwah ha ha ha!
