“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—“
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.
So, what do you think? Evil-genius-y?
