The solider ‘patient’, said to the doctor, through gritted teeth “did the little boy not make it”. He feared the answer as he stared into the empty space by the side of the doctor’s head, holding back to tears.

He handed the bear over to the soldier “I will check in on both of you later”, said the doctor as he walked out of the room.

The professor was just about to settle back into this amazing action flick, when it dawned on him again that this wasn’t a movie, it was in-fact his lifelong experiment. He dragged himself away from the entertainment on the TV so that he could carry on with his experiment, for the good of all of mankind (he told himself). But the main reason he wanted to continue with the experiment was because he hated watching soap operas, even if they’re action packed and strangely engrossing ones.
The machine began to wind up its diode’s and what you call it’s, again, drawing large amounts of energy through the tangled crow’s nest of cables which lay next to the electronic gismos. The images flickered across the screen clearer than before, still moving too fast to focus on a clear story, but were slow enough to get an overall picture of the events.
The professor said sternly “There will be no more interruption
