The world may be doomed by her mistake…unless she has the will to save it.
In the laboratories of the nation’s secret Bioweapons Division, Dr. Claire Lyle houses vials that could trigger the apocalypse. After a decade of neglecting her husband and daughter to develop the virus, Claire has finally created the most infectious microbe known to man. Excited to share the news about her creation, she gives an update on the project to her new superior, only for him to demand it be destroyed.

========================= Review ========================
A short story succinctly told. Well packed details flesh out the characters. Conflicts between characters brings depth and makes the story development alive. The negotiation scene feels familiar yet fresh. The ending is what the reader wanted to find out in if it has uncanny resemblance with world events or it is a fictitious story.
