The Evil Genius Blogfest

Hey all!  I'm participating today in the Evil Genius Blogfest (even though I'm jumping on the band wagon a tad late, and didn't get my entry in on time.  Whoops!) hosted by my lovely, and long-time blogging buddy The Golden Eagle, for her two-years of happy blogging.  So, without further ado, here is my entry!


“It’s all prepared?” asked the woman in a long, white lab coat, striding into the room.
“Yes ma’am,” said the scientist, handing her the vial of clear liquid.  She smiled at it, then pocketed it.
“Perfect,” she said, smiling cruelly.
“May I ask what you’re to do with this liquid, ma’am?  It’s dangerous.”
“I know that very well,” she said, smiling even wider.  The scientist got a confused look on his face.  “And I think you, my friend, know that a little too well.”
Confused, the scientist glanced at her.  “What do you—“
Bam.
A look of shock appeared on his face as he toppled backward, and fell to the floor, dead.
“It’s always such a shame to see such a bright young mind go to waste,” she said.  “But no matter.  I have what I need, and he was expendable.”
She turned, and left the room.
***
A tall, slender woman entered the hall, and after mingling for a few minutes and introducing herself as a reporter, she wandered over to the water table.  She slipped a small vial of clear liquid out of her pocket, and after looking around the room to make sure no one was watching her, poured it into the water.
She quickly moved away from the water, and began mingling again.  It wasn’t long before a change came over the chattering crowd, water glasses clutched in many of their hands.  Hacking coughs replaced mindless chatter, and soon, water glasses were tumbling to the floor as people clutched at their throats, unable to breathe.  Within minutes, the tall, slender woman was the only one left standing.  She walked over to a woman standing near a podium, and turned over her body.  “Hello Alice,” she said to the dead woman.  “So we meet again.  This time however, I seem to have won.  I will miss our little skirmishes.”  She removed the woman’s wallet, and flipped through it, before removing a slip of paper.  “I have what I want now.  You thought I’d never find you.  Well, too bad.  Because now, I’ve won.”
And with that, she stood, and left the room of corpses behind.

  1. Definitely evil genius!

    Now I want to know more about her--why was killing Alice so important?

    Thanks for participating. :)

    (And I opened up the link list to entries again, so if you want to add yours you can. I don't know why it closed early--I had set it for midnight EST.)

  3. I would say evil genius! What was that clear liquid and who was Alice? What was on that slip of paper?

    Great job!

  4. What was the original conflict that would bring such hate to Alice? And the paper? And the liquid? All questions are good to have--means the reader wants to read the next installment.

  6. Evil! Was that H.I.V.E. inspired?

  7. @Luna: Not as far as I know... :P Naw, I don't think it was H.I.V.E. inspired. The prompt was just evil genius, and that was the first thing that came to me on the spot.
