Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! 

Welcome to another installment of ‘Falling into that New Career’.

Daniel is not your normal hero. In fact, very far from it. Inopportunely rescued from a suicide attempt (by a 2 second admin error), he is plunged into an alternate reality, where he is supposed to be an already deceased ‘specimen’. Fortunately the workers overseeing his ‘collection’ were less than eager to change his status to that required by their paperwork, and he finds himself ‘relocated’. The only problem is, the Multiverse is a pretty big place, and he did not get returned to Earth.

His story continues in this second chapter (Falling into that New Career)  of Lab Rat (this is the working title only) where he finds himself in the Alien Immigration Offices, having to complete ‘paperwork’ with his case worker Zith Grewnfarn.

Daniel’s hot ears turned icy. What had he done? Oh, well. Nothing to do but sit it out.

“Will I be sent back?”

“No,” Zith’s monosyllable managed to convey a whiff of scorn and a tinge of ridicule. At Daniel’s enquiring glare, he continued, “Your species does not re-integrate well.”

The next five minutes continued with, what Daniel could only assume was, bureaucratically inspired fine print.

  1. Hmm, now I wonder why humans are so bad at ‘re-integrating.’ We’re generally fairly adaptable, but there are some exceptions… At least he has a system looking out for him, even if it’s not a terribly friendly one!

  2. “Your species does not re-integrate well.” This speaks volumes. LOL I’m reminded of the “pig-monster” in Galaxy Quest that didn’t get beamed up properly (inside-out in fact). I’m sure a little fine print is nothing compared to that. :).
