Written for the Friday Fictioneers. A story, about a brilliant scientific mind with an early setback, begins after the photo.
Genre: Science Fiction/Humor
“Well, this is it,” said Jeremy, sadly eyeing the university archway. “I still don’t think it’s fair.”
“I’m truly sorry,” said University Dean, Vernon Mansfield.
“You must admit the results were spectacular.”
“Indeed. The field of Medical Nanotechnology will never be the same.”
“So why am I being dismissed? Didn’t he like them?”
Mansfield sighed. “I’m sure President Colthwaite enjoys his wife’s new DD breasts, but you should’ve informed him…and her, before applying the technique.”
“I suppose so.” He surreptitiously pointed towards Mansfield’s crotch. “By the way, how’s that doing?”
Mansfield hid a smile. “Quite good. My wife sends her eternal thanks.”
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers meet to perform particularly powerful presentations of pretentious prudence and write up to 100 words of flash fiction from a photo prompt.
