Shadows crept across the wall through the skylight, the lone window of the dim lab. Kellian had only two hours to come up with a cure or Victor would exile him to Siberia.
He was no babysitter. Foolish, spoiled boy. He told him not to touch anything. Kellian glanced at the unconscious, orange six-year-old hellion. Innocent in sleep.
As Kellian stirred one more possible solution, Victor burst in with his two thugs. Early.
“What have you done?!”
“I told you this was no place for a child! I turned around for one second and…”
“No!” Victor rushed over to his son.
“I am working on an antidote. But what he drank should not have affected him this way.”
“You drink it!”
“But how will I…?”
Kellian shook his head. No use arguing. He should have studied computers. He picked up the flask of orange liquid.
“Wait! I know what happened.”
Victor smiled. “Drink it.”
“But…” Victor knew too. Kellian’s shoulders sank. He drank it.
As he fell to the floor, grasping his throat for air, nose bleeding, the devil child sat up and laughed.
Kellian’s eyes found the photo of the beach he longed for and everything faded.
