SPF: Reference

157 05 May 22nd 2016

Julie and Andrew stared dumbfounded, their eyes glued to the coloured mixture. The liquid swayed periodically.

Both siblings had been elated when asked to be part of this incredible project.

Andrew however, had always been the stubborn type. But for the first time he looked nervous and Julie was sure she’d throw up any second.

They’d been asked to do certain analysis, but Andrew insisted that Dr. Hart had been too arrogant to even glance at his equation which would help speed up calculations. When the entire staff had left for the night, he decided to prove Hart wrong, ignoring Julie’s protests. Then this happened.

“Listen, calm down…., ” he began.

“Calm down?” spluttered Julie. “CALM DOWN?!”

Andrew winced.

“The first EVER alien DNA that’s found and you turn it into dancing fruit punch?!” Julie was fuming, her face visibly red.

Andrew was sure he’d got it right but during the experiment the alien specimen suddenly shimmered and turned into thick, coloured liquid that swayed from side to side. Then, whiffs of orange and grape wafted into the air.

Andrew gave his sister a feeble grin and shrugged helplessly.

“Think they’ll still give us a reference?”

    Oops! Well, if an experiment is going to wrong, at least it did so dramatically!

    Haha. I liked this S. I don’t think they’ll have good referances.

  4. I imagine that probably won’t go down too well with Dr. Hart. Great story!

    LOL what a hoot! πŸ˜€

    Oops! And still, some of the most important discoveries happened by accident. Perhaps they’ve come up with a new way to make soda. πŸ™‚ Nice story.

  7. Ahhh things happen. Wasn’t their fault. No one can prove anything πŸ˜‰ Great story. Gave me giggles

  8. I think this mistake will follow them and have a negative effect on their careers. There’s little to be pleased about. Big mistake. Well written, SW. — Suzanne
