Chapter 2 teaser
“This is Maggie Walsh” The project leader spoke into the digital camera “Location Initiative lab Alpha, Subject Red, Report 20, Sub-file Scoobies. This report, file, sub-file and subject are Top Secret, Classification 3-6, eyes only, if you’re not rated for the material then press stop now.
Maggie stops talking to allow the standard blank space, she looked down for a moment and began shuffling her papers around. “As stated in previous reports, test of the nanotech is going smoothly. The procedures used in Adam and in each of the new stages of nanotechs have allowed us to perfect the merging of magic and technology.” Maggie turns the camera towards a slide projected image of someone’s blood. She begins changing slides as she comments.
“With each new test subject in subject group Scoobies, we were only testing the viruses delivery system. Testing of the virus itself isn’t due to start for another six months or so. As you can see the nanotechs perform their job in seconds, attaching themselves to the white and red blood cells.” Maggie uses a laser pen to highlight each pertinent part in the slide.
The slides switch to an x-ray. “As you can see here, the nanotechs not only go after the blood, they burrow into the bone marrow of each of the subjects. The curious thing about these nanotechs is they seem to be imitating the bodies internal works, in some cases improving upon nature, evolving themselves. Seeing this isn’t the purpose of these test subjects we have put them in cold storage until such a time further analysis can be done.
