“Found another one, Sir. Runner enters colon, coils around spine, terminates at brain stem. Spine’s been stretched to complete separation. Brain’s still alive. Visual and auditory cortices fully functional.”
“Victim’s not dead?”
“No, Sir. But he wishes he was.”
“Put the poor sap out of his misery, Agent.”
“Can’t, Sir. He’ll reconstitute. That’s more excruciating.”

  1. nice piece. Once again, I’ve enjoyed your prompt response.
    Nice twist at the end with:
    “Payback for environmental negligence?”
    “No. Consequences of immoral behaviors. Man perverted his God-given nature. Nature’s following suit.”
