Jane, Tim and John were listening to a heated debate on an issue in a
parliament which was the ‘best’ debate in the book of Guinness world record.In
the heat of the argument, they went back to a memory that was very hard to be
erased from the mind.
The alleyway laid before them.It was a little narrow, just wide enough for a
Trio to walk through.It smell of rotting meat and there were the sights of a
cockroach land.“Urgh, this is so smelly!I feel like vomiting!And there are so many
cockroaches!” exclaimed Jane as she held her breath.She was walking with her
colleagues, Tim and John, to work.They love to do science work, especially
biology.They were on the way to work.John then suggested that they should kill
the cockroaches.Why not?After all, it was a significant issue which was
discussed in parliament many times before, and they had nothing to lose.And so
the trio begins on the project.
Well, easier said than done.They needed the resources and money to find
a way to kill them.Also, the poison that kills them should not be able to be
adaptable by the cockroaches.They had to find a way to get their ‘target’.The
only advantage was that they had only Tim, also known as the guy with a big
brain.In a few months, the cockroaches were all dead.The president announced
that three mysterious persons did the town a great service.But little did they know
that a disaster was coming.A few months later, small animals like ants were seen
looking for cockroach land and were dying.Gradually, it moved on the frogs and
grasshoppers and finally, the animals which people depend on for a livelihood,
were dying.The situation was grave.The president called for several meeting.The
news spoke about them for days, weeks, months!John was very sorry about the
whole thing.He suggested,”How about breeding them?”Jane replied
hotly,”Hey!You want to breed cockroaches?!The last time, you killed them
all!Now you want to breed them!I bet that the situation will go out of hand!”
Gradually, they began to argue.Tim stopped them.”Follow his idea.I will help to
regulate their breeding.”Jane nodded, not very convinced.
They begin to find the solution.Tim had to find a dead cockroach while
John helped with carrying the technical stuff.As for Jane, let just say she was a
couch potato.The extr.action of the deoxyribonucleic acid was the most tedious
thing to do in science, to say the least.They had to spin the blood to separate it
into the different components.They also had to find a perfect one to pair with
it.However the odds, they finally to breed two of them.
The president happened to pass by.He took a photo and personally sent them an
email to them to come to the city hall.He took a medal of honour, presented it to
them and he gave them an exclusive job to work in the government.Jane, Tim
and John were given a lesson that they learnt: never think that a pest is bad.
