Examination of the Evidence
"Just do something about it!!" GH said.
Cloaky did not answer, but inspected some of the detris of the knocked over table. He noticed what appeared to be a lettuce leaves covered in what could be some sort of dressing. To his eyes, they looked a rather unappealing ashy gray color.
"Cloak?" GH inquired, as FuBar and Hunter continued to move off.
"Did Hunter consume this salad?" Cloak asked.
"Did Hunter eat this salad? The one on the floor here?" Cloak clarified.
"Yes. But what the hell does it matter?!" GH said, anxiety filling him.
"It matters a great deal," Cloak said, evenly. "This colloidal liquid, though similar to salad dressing, isn't. It's the sauromorphogenic substance, the dino-sauce, for a layman nomenclature."
"So, it's the chemical that turned Hunter and FuBar into dinosaurs -- or well, mammal/dinosaur hybrids." Cloak said. "While it isn't the same thing as the Dinosaur Island incident, this is undeniably similar."
"But how?" GH said.
"That's a very good question," Cloak said. "But one we can answer later. Right now, we have . . . larger
"Code Avalon will keep them in, right?" GH asked. "Like with the --"
"They're significantly larger than it, especially Hunter," Cloak said at once. "Code Avalon is at it's lowest setting. There hasn't been any reason to bump it up, and there's no time to get the message to communications. They'll be out and in the countryside before we hail communications, or even arrive there."
GH said nothing in reply, so Cloak continued.
"We need a device," Cloak said, opening his palm. There he produced a golden-scarlet construct of what appeared to be a rifle with a humongous, dinosaur-sized wishbone embedded in it with the two sides of the wishbone arching forward, like a pincer of some kind. "I believe they called it a 'wishbone'. It can undo the effects of dino-sauce."
"Hmm? Oh. The Dinosaucers," Cloak said, as if this was a satisfactory answer.
"The who?" GH inquired, still quite moody.
"It doesn't matter," Cloak said, swiftly changing the subject to the problem at hand. "The fact is we have to get the boys working on this as soon as possible."
"Goom, Yarin, and Aquilai?" GH said, obviously not liking that Cloak wasn't answering his question.
"And Xeno, too." Cloak said. "The sooner they can complete it, the soon we can revert FuBar and Hunter back to their normal, lovable selves."
that it's not going to be that easy," GH said, almost accusatory.
"Nothing truly worth doing is," Cloak said.
"You got that from a fortune cookie, didn't you?" GH sighed.
