After the sonic boom had destroyed his laboratory, including this season’s experiments, Dr. Lantha nursed the lone remaining liquid filled jar like a possessive mother bird through the hot summer months. He fawned and fussed over it day and night, adjusting temperature and light. Otto thought he was going to have to send for help, until one crisp, clear autumn day something began to bubble beneath the surface of amber liquid. Otto reached for the bubbling jar with the adorable, puzzled face that only a chimp can make.

“Soon Otto, soon,” Dr. Lantha answered giddily before Otto could touch his most prized possession.


Today’s Daily Prompt: Choose Your Adventure ask’s us to write a story or post with an open ending, and let the readers invent the conclusion. I’ve written today’s 100 word story + 3 word prompt “beneath the surface” from the remains of Dr. Lantha’s laboratory, but I’m letting you pick what will hatch from his surviving experiment. The poll will close in 1 week. Stayed  tuned for upcoming tales of Dr. Lantha’s lab based on your input.
