In a small but busy part of California it was another long boring day at the private detectives office. “it’s been four months since someone hired me” said Mr Barret to himself as he threw a dart at the dart board he was playing with, when the phone rang, Mr Barret immediately took his feet of the desk sat upright and picked up the receiver.Hello, Private detectives office” said Mr Barret anxiously “good afternoon Jack, it’s Chief Inspector Waren, we have a case for you if you’re interested”, recognising the police chiefs voice and a bit shocked Mr Barret replied “What happened to Detective Mould, why didn’t he get the case”, taking a deep breath the police chief replied “he’s dead ! , he was found dead this morning at his house, that’s why I want you to investigate” Mr Barret replied slowly “I’ll take the case”, the police chief than said meet me at Detective Mould’s house immediately”, in a hurry Mr Barret replied “I’ll be right there”.
Mr Barret and Detective Mould were old rivals, Detective Mould always got all the cases and evidence because he was the only detective working for the police. Mr Barret is a private detective he is an organised and serious person, he das a good repetition of successfully completing cases he is hired for, he is in his early thirties and quiet fit. Mr Barret put his long coat on and locked his office and set for Detective Mould’s house in his old but clean car.When Mr Barret arrived at he crime scene the whole street was sealed by police, so Mr Barret parked his car and asked a policeman why the whole street was sealed off, the police man replied “some how the roof of the murder victims house was scattered all over the street, and the chief wants it analysed to find what could have caused this”. Mr Barret thanked him and walked to the house where the he met chief inspector Waren. The police chief was waiting outside the house.
The chief inspector is a short mean looking fat man who always seemed to be smoking, but his presence immediately indicates he is the in charge.The police chief also has a habit of shouting a lot. The police chief took Mr Barret into Detective Mould’s house and told him detective Mould was not killed with a gun or knife. Instead the was scratched, crushed and tossed around his house and brutally shaped like a ball by something obviously not human before he was killed. The marks left on what was left of detective Mould’s body look like some big claw marks but at this moment the police have no idea what it could be.
The chief also told Mr Barret that strange types of blue hairs were found in the house, lab analysis show the hair samples have no record or match anything in the lab database. Mr Barret finding all this information hard to swallow asks the police chief “how did this thing get in the house”, the inspector finishing his current cigarette take another one out and replies “according to the neighbour who called to police he saw a giant bat like figure break out through the roof after Detective Mould’s screams were heard. We guess Detective Mould was probably in bed when the attacker entered the house thorough the roof. “.Mr Barret stood still for a while thinking then says “Why or What do you think he was attacked by”.
The police chief looked a bit puzzled then he replied “that’s why we hired you, I personally thinks I was a hoax to cover up the murder scene, but I do know detective Mould was working on a case against a Dr Lazarus, who is one of the worlds leading scientists in the DNA field, the case was based on a tip of which Detective Mould received that Dr Lazarus was doing illegal experiment on humans”. Mr Barret said “well why don’t I pay Dr Lazarus a little visit to get a more clearer idea on what Detective Mould was working on”.The police chief looked a little uncomfortable with Mr Barret’s idea and told Mr Barret “I doubt Dr Lazarus has any involvement in this. He in his fifties and a well respected friend to the mayor. ” Mr Barret insisted that he visit Dr Lazarus so the police chief agreed “as long as you don’t upset him or we’ll both be trouble” saying that the police chief left. Mr Barret got back to his car and set for Biotech Laboratory where Dr Lazarus works.
Arriving at Biotech Laboratory Mr Barret was impressed looking at the highly impressive architecture of the building.Mr Barret went in and asked the secretary where he could find Dr Lazarus the secretary said “Dr Lazarus has gone out of town for a few days but you can meet with his assistant for the time being”. Mr Barret asked “What his name? ” the secretary replied “Jim, you can meet him down the corridor, first door on the left”. Mr Barret walked down the long corridor noticing the grey marble floor in through the first door on the left where he saw a young scientist like person mixing a few chemicals in test tubes, Mr Barret coughed to get his attention and the man turned around “are you Jim” asked Mr Barret.
The man replied “yes, how can I help you” replied Jim, in a soft voice. Mr Barret asked “What was Dr Lazarus working on” Jim a bit hesitant, took his glasses off to give them a little clean replied “he was working on a solution that can make human beings stronger, faster and more resistant to dieses” just as Jim finished his sentence a cold voice replied “that will be all Jim, I’ll take it from here”. Mr Barret turned around he saw a thin man with grey hair a white lab coat with an identification card saying Dr Lazarus.Mr Barret could tell from experience that Dr Lazarus was angry at Jim for talking about his project and was trying to stay calm. Mr Barret saw a test tube in Dr Lazarus’s hand it had some blue liquid in it. Dr Lazarus told Mr Barret to leave and that he had no business here. Mr Barret replied and told him that he was investigating about a blue creature that might have something to do with biotech laboratory. Mr Barret noticed the look on Dr Lazarus’s face change and he replied “I don’t know what you are talking about you will have to leave, I have work to do” saying that Dr Lazarus walked of to a near by table and started some work.
Mr Barret was about to head back to his car when he asked Dr Lazarus “I thought you were supposed to be out of town for a few days”. Dr Lazarus continued to do what he was doing and replied “change of plan” on hearing that Mr Barret went back to his car it was almost seven in the afternoon and it was starting to get dark. Mr Barret decided to go home on the way as he stopped at a traffic light he saw a big shadow fly over his car, he looked up but saw nothing, so he ignored the incident.
At home Mr Barret got ready to go to sleep and just sat on his bed the incident at the traffic light had made him a bit jumpy. When he heard a big bang like a wall smashing. Mr Barret got up quickly and took his shot gun out form under the bed and filled his pocket with spare cartridges. He was certain he new what it was he opened his bed room door and a big blue colour beast got up from a pile of bricks and jumped at Mr Barret. Mr Barret moved out of the way and fired two shot gun shells at the beast on back.The beast turned around he was face to face with Mr Barret.
It had huge red eyes, two big wings at the back and was very hairy it had big claws ready to rip Mr Barret apart. The shot gun had little affect on the creatures back so Mr Barret fired another shot which hit the beast in the neck that seem to hurt it and the creature fled through the window. Mr Barret was just stunned, he could not believe what had just happened. He immediately lifted the receiver of the phone and called the police chief. Minutes later dozens of police cars had arrived at Mr Barret’s house.Mr Barret told the police chief about the incident at Biotech Laboratory. Barret told the police chief to wait at his house with some police officers in case the beast came back.
Mr Barret got his pistol out of his draw and loaded it with special mercury tipped bullets for better penetration. Mr Barret decided to go to Biotech Laboratory and a police officer decided to take him. The police officer with Mr Barret was Mr Pierce Johnson he was the best shooter on the police force. On arriving at Biotech Laboratory Mr Barret noticed the lights were still on and the doors were open.Johnson and Mr Barret went in towards the room where Mr Barret had been earlier as they reached the room they heard Jim Shouting “give me the formula to the new solution and I will let you live” and then they heard Dr Lazarus “never, it’s my life work I will not let you steal it”.
When Mr Barrel and Johnson went into the room the shouted them to freeze Dr Lazarus was cowering in the corner of the room. Jim’s neck was bleeding slightly, when Jim saw Mr Barret and Johnson he got out a test tube from his pocket containing a green chemical and drank it. His colour changed blue and in a matter of seconds he was a beast.
He charged at Mr Barret but Mr Barret and Johnson shoot him till there bullets ran out. The beast fell to the ground but to Mr Barret and Johnson’s amazement the wounds were healing up again and the beast got up again this time he grabbed Johnson and threw him across the room knocking him unconscious. Then he started advancing toward Mr Barret but suddenly Dr Lazarus ran across the room and stuck an injection into the beasts arm with a yellow chemical in it which killed the beast. Dr Lazarus explained to Mr Barret how Jim wanted to steal the Dr Lazarus’s formula and modify it to make himself more powerful.
