I'm still a little woozy from yesterday and the days before that. I think I must've blacked out for a few days, because when I woke up I was in the Guinea pig's cage. And an IV was in my paw. When I glanced at Derby, 4-H, the Guinea pig, he gazed back and walked towards me.
"What are you?" He said.
"A rat," I spat furiously.
Derby's face cleared. "DEWEY?" he cried, but to humans it would've been a pained shrilly squeak.
"Keep your voice down! What happened to me?"
"Another experiment," Derby said, gesturing to the IV. "I think they're testing a cancer drug on you. I saw them put something in you when you blacked out."
I hit my head with a clawed paw. "They put cancer in me?"
I swore. Then I stood up and managed to nose the cage open. With a loud clang, it fell back down as the scientist walked over and removed the IV. Of course, then it dawned on me, and I swung around to Derby. "They're gonna kill me!" I shrieked in his white face.
"No, they're not."
"How do you know? Do you remember with happened to Blaze, 3-G?" I screeched, my fur stiff and my tail rattling.
"He died! They injected him with cancer or whatever and let him snuff it! I don't want to die, but if I do, I want you to get everyone out of here!" I wrenched the cage open and slipped out. I invaded the scientists' feet and got to the lab door. They began yelling and trying to catch me. I slipped under the door to see a new room. White, like the one I had escaped, but strange! Animals in tubes. Some of them smelled rotten.
I howled as Harris grabbed me and stuffed me back in my cage moments later.
What was that?
That's what I'm thinking right now...
Nothing happened today, but I'll tell you what happened yesterday night.
Last night, I went back inside...I found Blaze. He was dead, and I knew that was where they kept the dead bodies to study, to find out what killed them.
I knew I'd be there soon...
