call came through for International Rescue's services at a
fire in a top secret laboratory where work on developing
biological warfare agents and remedies took place. Hoping I
would find momentary relief from my pain, I threw myself into
the rescue, working with the Tracy brothers to save not only
laboratory personnel but as many of the laboratory subjects as
boys were packing up to return to Base once the crisis was
over, I lingered near the area where some of the lab personnel
and subjects were being administered to by various emergency
medical personnel. And there I saw him, drawn to him as to no
other before. He was beautiful, perfect in every way. I
couldn't bear to be parted from him and so found a way to
sneak him on board Thunderbird Two, to have him with me
were asleep that night, I whisked him to my bedroom, to share
my love once again with a most-beloved life. He didn't know
that the cage in which I put him had so recently belonged to
another. He just went right to the wheel, got in, and started
running to his heart's content.
without a precious hamster is just not worth living.
