SF Drabble #167 “1.5% Chance Of Flesh-Craving Mutancy”

“Feel any different?” The doctor was listening to his heart through a stethoscope.

“No. Should I?”

“Well, to be honest, I’m not sure. Most of the changes should be on a very basic level, physiologically speaking. The big changes, the noticeable changes, they’ll happen gradually, as your reconstituted genes begin to affect your body. I doubt there’ll be much in the way of discomfort.”


The doctor peered into his ear with an otoscope. “Everything looks good so far.”

“Can I go home?”

“Well, we’d like to keep you overnight for observation. Just to be on the safe side.”
