Today we conclude book 2 with this part 10. Book 3 – “A War Is Coming” will begin very soon. I hope you enjoy!
Months had passed before the Hasenpfeffer had finally come to the realization that like it or not this was his new reality. He didn’t really mind his new life it definitely had its perks. He got to roam freely during the day around the massive warehouse and at night after a little coaxing the Professor had let him wander around the docks as long as he stayed out of trouble. He liked the Professor; they had become close over the last few months. Resentment for his captor had slowly turned to gratitude. He enjoyed his new power and agility. He even enjoyed his training. Every day the professor would run tests seeing what his limits were and each day his limits increased, and he was excited to see where it would end. The professor loved to talk, and the Hasenpfeffer was amazed by the professor’s stories of science and his plan for perfecting a world gone soft. He felt as if maybe he was the first of the next breed of human and that made him feel special. Before this had happened, he hadn’t really had a solid friend, not one that he got to see every day at least.
Dr. Zu would occasionally come by as well and although he couldn’t see her he had come to the conclusion that she was both stunningly beautiful and horrifying at the same time. Her smell was alluring and her skin soft to the touch. He also heard her laughter as she cut into another specimen that had been brought into the lab for alteration. For some reason both equally appealed to the Hasenpfeffer and secretly he hoped the professor would use her DNA to create a female version of himself although he knew that would never happen. He also knew that his new little family of three was about to grow larger.
The Professor had been watching them. Studying their movements and deciphering their motivations. In order to achieve their ultimate goal of human perfection, Dr. Zu and the Professor knew that certain normal humans had to be disposed of, discarded for the good of the master plan.
Their plan was simple, and the Hasenpfeffer marveled at its genius and simplicity. When you need something done right, find the best person for the job or as in this case when you need several things taken care of find the best people for the job.
Sometimes late in the afternoon the Professor, Dr. Zu and the Hasenpfeffer would sit and watch the news together laughing at the clumsy ineptitude of normal humans. “One day soon Has my friend you will be getting a bunch of brothers and sisters to play with” the Professor would say. “And then we can make the world the perfect place it should be.”
Today was the day.
Nathan grabbed Zulinda, pulled her close and kissed her. “It’s time to activate Karl again, my love. You have your list. Although this time let’s try to get our newest family members here in one piece okay?” he said with a chuckle. “You tag along and take care of any accidents that may occur and if you can bring their bodies back here. Be safe and have fun.”
With that, she kissed Nathan and left the warehouse with a massive grin on her face.
The Professor then turned to The Hasenpfeffer, “HAS old boy its time you earned your keep around here and had a little fun. This is the name and address of one of your new family members. Go get her boy and bring her home. But first, let’s see if my experiment worked.”
The Professor slowly removed the bandages from the Hasenpfeffer’s eyes and his world flooded with light.
“That’s better my friend” Nathan smiled up at him “Now have a nice time and see you when I get back. I am off to pick up our little friend in Groom Lake.”
