Wrong Lever

by on July 5, 2017

I push open the hatch and stare, gaping. A cloud boils lazily upwards on the horizon. Everything between me and the cloud is rubble. The ashes fall lightly on me.
I hear the doctor below. “Sheila? Are you out yet? Did it work?”

He was trying for a basic freeze ray. How do I tell him?

I start with the blindingly obvious. “Ah, no. Not exactly.”

The doctor swears. “I knew the blue lever was the right one!”

“Yeah. Looks like.”

  1. Sheila’s ok, though. That was more important to me than I thought. Even knowing how durable Igors are. (which reminds me, I ran across this the other day and I’ve been meaning to send you the link: )

    • Awesome! I have bookmarked the link, and will submit soon as I polish up the Igor stories a bit. 🙂

  2. So glad to hear that Sheila’s okay. For now. Maybe hanging around this Wrong Lever guy isn’t the best way to keep that situation in check, though.

  3. Oh dear. That doctor. He’s lucky he has such a great Igor!

  4. I wonder how Sheila manages with the doctor! Haha! She’s a great employee!

  5. Love these characters! Glad to see you back, Michael!
