When I got to the lab the celebrations were already in full swing, most of the staff were drunk, or well on the way.
I pulled Doctor Menzies to one side.
“What the hell is going on here?” I asked him.
“We've done it, we've found the cure, it's official now, we've finally beaten the virus.”
“In who's opinion?”
“We hit the five thousand cured mark this afternoon, that was the target figure, five thousand infected treated, with five thousand tested clear afterwards, officially we've found the cure, isn't that wonderful?”
“Menzies, you moron, all of your subjects died, all five thousand of them.”
“Yes, but not from the virus.”
“Well what the hell DID they die from?”
“Errrrr... well.... we're still working on that one.”
