“I don’t really mind working through the bombings, as a matter of fact, I think I’m closer to a breakthrough.”
He never told me what the breakthrough was, it was the last time I spoke to him. He had been working alone at the Laos lab facility for the past 3 years.
I remember my visit to his place about a year ago. He seemed quite content. He had taken up gardening along with reading as a hobby and creepers covered the leftover space on the bookshelves.
My friend stopped calling me two weeks ago. He wasn’t at home and his house’s been overgrown with plants.
Today Pegman is in Laos. Join us as we look for the missing scientist. The photo prompt has been given by Penny Gadd at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
