Jackie held the syringe of yellow-brown poison up to the always-buzzing fluorescent lights in the secret laboratory, examining it carefully, and thought about what she would do next. What they did to these animals here was a crime against nature, she thought, reasoning that her long years of study at the University’s School of MicroBiology and her graduate Genetics training in CRISPR made her uniquely qualified to act. It was unethical, evil, and risky to use advanced genetic engineering techniques on these poor animals.
She looked down at the facility guard sprawled on the floor and frowned. He was out cold, but for how long? He looked harmless, but should she take the chance? Any delay and her chance of making it out of the facility with the prize she sought in her backpack would be slim. Forget it, she decided, he won’t be awake soon, not with the nasty purple bump on his forehead where she hit him with the fire extinguisher. She had better things to do.
Grabbing her backpack off the lab bench, heavy with her prize, she turned and injected the poison into the air filter feeding the animal subject cages. It would not kill the animals, but would contaminate the test area. The next lab results would be a complete failure, perhaps so that they would have to start over, or give up. And in their financial condition, they would be bankrupt within months, never realizing that they had succeeded at their crazy genetic experiment.
She turned, left the lab, and and walked down the hill quicky, not looking back until she reached her car.
It was a few days later when she met with Sam, who had run the initial tests on her animals.
“You won’t believe the lab test report!”, Sam stuttered, holding the results in his hand, his glasses askew on his perspiring face. “Where did you get this?!! These eggs, or the source of them, are worth Millions, or Billions!!
He explained that the results showed extremely high levels of both CBD and THC plus a whole lot of hybrid sugars, so they were a naturally sweetened Cancer and Anxiety fighting combination, and super tasty, with low calories!
Jackie thanked Sam. After she left, she went into her basement, behind the bookcase, and looked down at her babies.
“Honey, let’s take a look, she said to her sweet bird. Carefully lifting up the Goose, she saw it had already laid 4 eggs.
The eggs were quite pretty, almost golden. Jackie smiled.
