Part three of my tale about the unforunate Dr. Black. I will respond to comments in character, feel free to ask questions or suggest things to either Dr. Black or his assistant. You never know, it might influence the next installment.
These are the scientific notes of Dr. Jacob Black, dictated to his assistant Natasha Rubina due to Dr. Black’s current status.
I am now finishing my third week as a toilet, many things have changed for me. Natasha has been flushing me and refilling me at least once a day. Also after a long talk with Natasha we decided to try the experiment again, the machine is unable to convert anything to organic materials so we needed to decide on a form I could assume. I came to the conclusion I could be happy as a mannequin, but since we did not have a mannequin to scan into the machine Natasha reasoned that the form was a non-issue, since if the machine worked she could convert me again another time. She slipped off one of her high heels and used that as a template. When the machine activated it never targeted me, likely because I am now made of inorganic materials. I was very upset about this as it meant I was truly stuck as a toilet.
A few days after the failed experiment the inevitable happened, one of my old colleagues came into my laboratory looking for me. I remained quiet while he talked with Natasha until he took our research notes and discovered my fate. His fascination with me was very scary, he was obsessed with understanding how I worked and kept referring to me as it. The moment that he suggested disassembly of my form was when Natasha did it. I can understand her motivation but I am a little disappointed she reacted as she did. When I saw the bright light surround me I knew that the machine was activated, I cannot help but wonder if when I changed I screamed like Dr. Grey did. The sight of his body condensing into a small black high heel and the sound of his anguished cries will haunt me forever. Natasha came and picked up the shoe, which by this point was just a gibbering wreak and she carried him out of the laboratory. When she returned we had another long conversation, by the end of it we concluded I needed to hide somewhere to protect myself and other people. Natasha mentioned a ladies room that was being refurbished, we decided I could hide there until Natasha can find a way to smuggle me out. Although I still have this feeling of doom I now know that I have to find a way to fight on, for myself, Natasha and the unfortunate Dr. Grey.
I was crushed when the experiment failed and it became apparent that the Dr. was trapped. I had hoped that there would be some way to convert him into something I could smuggle out or something that could be easily hidden in the laboratory. When Dr. Grey found us I tried to reason with him but he was focused on taking Dr. Black apart. I admit I panicked, but at that moment in time turning on the machine seemed the only way. After that incident and a long chat with Dr. Black I have phoned maintenance and told them that a toilet was delivered to our lab by mistake, then I snuck into the ladies room that is being refurbished and broke one of the basins. So I think that Dr. Black will be hidden there soon, then I will just need to find a way to get him out. As for Dr. Grey, after taking him away from the laboratory all he has done is ask what he is. I smuggled him out of the building in my purse, I don’t have the heart to tell him I have turned him into a shoe, how do you tell a man he is stuck as a black, patent Mary-Jane with an ankle strap? I have just left him inside my purse for tonight… This is all such a mess…
