A Ray Device

    by: BeeJay   More by this author
The laboratory's layout was easy to navigate, with gadgets and widgets at either end. Occupying space on the wall was Dad's favorite quote from Thomas Edison:

I have not failed. I've simply found 10,000 ways that won't work.

But what caught my eye was a particular device at one end of the room. It looked like a rather elaborate lamp, and it was pointed at a spot on the floor. "Why would Dad want a lamp pointed at nothing?" I wondered.

I found a button that was connected to the lamp, and I pressed it.

Nothing happened. "Guess that's why it isn't pointed at anything: it doesn't work."

I took a quick tour of the laboratory, checking everything out. Finishing my circuit almost where I started, I said, "Dad's got quite a setup here. I hope he shows me everything soon."

Then I heard a whine.

As it grew louder and higher, I realized it was coming from the lamp.

Then I realized it wasn't a lamp.

Then I realized that the reason for the delay was to get out of the laboratory before it went off.

Then I realized that it was pointed at me.

Unfortunately, I realized all that right before it went off.
