7 Billion Pills

The world has been swept by an unusual migraine tablet...
And no-one can seem to get rid of it.
The burden falls on Miss Katie Chase to stop the pill's effects from spreading...


10. Riddles

I paced out of the room, highly irritated, and wondering how to make my next move. You see, Dr. Straiker and I had engaged in a sort of... 'Chess'. We will continue to play at the other's game, toy at the other's emotions, and seek for the other's trump card until one of us kills the king. One big thing that would rip the other apart and send their world crashing to the ground. Their Checkmate.

The mysterious doctor, I could see, was busy at work with some patients, and the Clerk at the desk was flustered; no change there then. I went into an empty practise room, casually flicking the switch that inited patients in for examination."Next!" I yelled, deterined to find the root cause of the problem.

An elderly woman walked in, carrying a handbag and spectacles, perched precariously on the end of her nose. I proceeeded to do my Sherlock Holmes analysis, however my thought were slightly blurred by my previous conversation. Her coat was splattered with mud; she came here either a long way or in a hurry; it was urgent, probably something she was worried about- but she didn't look sick. Neither did the patient Dr. Straiker was treating, at first. "Hello, Madam," I greeted her courtiously, inspecting other bits of her clothing. one pf the buttons on her coat was torn off, but she had a convenient spare attatched to the bottom of her hem- so she hadn't noticed. There was a small hole in her trouser cuff that had been diligently repaired, which shows she had noticed that, though they looked relatively new. What drug would cause someone to loose their attention to breaks in their clothes? Perhaps something that cause memory loss, damage to brain cells, which would lead to illness and inability to fight off contagions. That was why everyone else had a different disease; because they were so open to catching them...

And then it hit me.

The drug that Dr. Straiker had been feeding maliciously to his patient... The one that had left him so frail and weak he could die any second... The one that meant he would have to be in constant care until the day his heart stopped beating...

That drug was available to the public.
