“I wouldn’t touch that!”
Timothy’s gloved finger hovered an inch away from the gloopy mess situated in Dr Jessamine Bell’s lab while the boss herself tapped out instructions on the hologram screen behind.
“Is it dangerous?” he asked, retracting his hand and ramming it safely into his lab-coat pocket.
“Haven’t tested it yet. Could just be gunk with severely funky odor.”
Timothy nodded, eyes still fixed on the sample. “They found it topside right?”
“Yeap,” said Jessamine, popping the ‘p’.
“But why bring it back?”
Jessamine shrugged. “Supposedly saved the Director’s life.”
“How?” Timothy asked.
“Stopped her bleeding to death.”

It’s been a while since I wrote anything for Headquarters so I thought to myself, why not use this prompt as a chance to come up with a couple of new characters and a new idea to move the story along. Now I just have to write the segment which covers the finding of the gunk with severely funky odor
