Posted by reudaly on June 30, 2017 in Writing |

Prompt: A Scientist Makes an Unexpected Discovery

Words: parallel, informal, crude, expand, popular, unlikely, analyst, replacement, cell, chest


“Seriously, Dylan? Every time?”

Dylan grinned. “Only when we make a discovery, Rain.”

“And…what exactly have we discovered, Dylan? The perfect amount of cream and sugar in your coffee? Because as popular as that would make us, I don’t think it’s eureka worthy. And it’s unlikely we can use it as a replacement for rent.”

Dylan waved Rain off with a nonchalant salute. “You worry too much. We are on the path to a major breakthrough. Take a look in the microscope. You’ll see.”

Rain gave him a side eye as she sidled past to the scope in the informal lab. She adjusted the dials to study the cell structure and pulled back. “That’s…are you…?”

Dylan’s grin widened, and he puffed out a breath. “It’s crude for now, but with some work and a good analyst…”

“Hey! I’m your analyst and don’t you forget it.” She poked him in the chest. “We have to expand the sample size, run parallel experiments. We have a long way to go.”

“But think about the implications! If Kryptonite is really real? We will go down in history books!”

“Just because we watched the degradation, doesn’t mean it’s Kryptonite.” Rain stared at Dylan.

“Oh, yes. It does.”

“Dylan, where did you get that blood?”

“It’s mine.”
