Somebody asked me why I wrote the flaw; I told them that something had to be going. Our damn malls, shopping center, and schools have become war zones. I don’t know if it’s a virus, I don’t know if it’s a mental health issue or its just whackjobs getting automatic weapons. I just know something is going on, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. I’ve had senior virologists, as well as professors of behavioral sciences, agree. Because things like this don’t just come out of nowhere.
And I figure there has to be something to my theory, considering my contact at the CDC was found floating face down in the Atlanta River just two weeks after he informed me. Someone at the Pentagon may have ordered such a virus released as a form of population control.
I know for some it may be hard to wrap their heads around a virus causing these people to act out. But you have to ask yourself, why is the frequency of the killings increasing, why is it that 99% of shooters immediately after commit suicide?
Here’s an excerpt from the flaw, hope you enjoy it.
“What the hell do you mean it got out, Lucas?”
The L train grew still, as the ordinarily boisterous New Yorkers lent their ears.
“They said they were never going to use it, how was I supposed to know.”
“Who, who said they would never use it?”
“The people at the Pentagon, I made it for. They came to the farm one day, and said if I help them, they will wipe away my father’s tax debt.”
“What exactly did you make, for them, Lucas?”
“What type of bug?”
However, by the look on Lucas’s face, Noah knew it wasn’t a common cold.
“It doesn’t have a failsafe, Noah; I don’t think I can stop it.”
