Someone was attaching the cords to me when I began to regain consciousness. “Idiot, idiot!” The voice sounded as if from a far distance. “I warned you not to remove the cords, didn’t I?”
My heart started beating steadily. Had he come a little later, I might had a heart attack!
“Next time,” said Clive, “I won’t be able to save you because I won’t be near you. Got that?” He glared at me before leaving the room.
“Condescending son of a bitch!” I said.
The door flung open and Clive poked his head in the room. “Watch it, fool! I read minds.”
That sounded like a trouble for my ultimate goal. –From The SPACE HERMITS
