The Night It Happened

by Susan Vanderburgh | Score: 5600

"Eek!" This is horrifying!" Xavier screamed. "How can you not react to this? Will you answer me?"

X-rays will show that there is a mysterious object insider Mrs. X's abdomen. There is no explanation other than that there was bad work. 

A methodical engineer will see how this type of  problem could be resolved. There is nothing to stop one from finding the answers if there were certain steps taken to ensure no steps are missing. 

Why has no one seen this in Ms. X's abdomen?

She was at her piano, that is what the report indicated. The computer was also hacked, but how can we make sure we can prove we are not at fault., none of us are at Zeno Tech and Scientific Center. We cannot allow this story to tarnish the name of Zeno Tech and Scientific Center. 

That astrologer might have had something to do with this. He was so touchy about this subject of Zeno Tech and Scientific Center and the mysterious object. He did say we would find a "zebra", or may be he meant "zeta" or "ziti" or the size of a bar of soap.  Who knows what was going through his mind. That  bar of soap was washing away as we worked on Ms. X. 

Supposedly, while she played the piano, a glass shattered from the rumbling from the piano and the drums and the nightlight was creating excessive heat.

It still cannot explain why this bar of soap was on the floor and no one picked it up.

The somber marketing director of Zeno Tech and Scientific Center is concerned about making a positive spin for this case.

"Yes, she did come to see us," Medical Director Raymond French said as he looked at his wristwatch. "Gentlemen, I have only  two more minutes with you," Director French said, he glanced at his watch. There, is a pregnant patient I need to attend and time is ticking. She is about to burst, just like my sense of humor.
