It’s a bonus to us with the sun emerging early today than its normal stroke. The temperature stands at a standard 22°C, but my internal organs threaten to freeze unless I come up with answers to my supervisor’s bottomless cravings. The strangeness of this invasion by the sun isn’t a bonus. My body lies in siege and can’t break forth.
For the second time running, Prof. cancels my project topic without reprieve. For an atmospheric condition downside of 22°C, Prof’s action hurts so much that I can’t see beyond this prism of discriminatory tendencies. I figured how seamless my course mates’ got their topics and this didn’t help my cause. I considered channeling my helplessness through protocols; so I’d just defile the man’s lofty heights and prey on the attributes which make human beings passionate.
I wipe expelled sweat off my face.
‘My gut tells me Prof wants you doing a study never once done in the department’ My roommate says as we discuss it over dinner.
‘He could have scribbled it unto the edge of the drafts he twice rejected’ I interject while adjusting my nose mask. The flu made wearing a nose mask, sanitizing the hands with alcohol-based sanitizer, and maintaining social distance mandatory.
We’ve not seen Prof in two months. That’s the entire duration of the lockdown. The new flu, capable of infecting humans at an alarming pace, emerged a week to the time I’d return to Prof with my new project topic. Scientists say it’s a novel case, with no record of the flu in over fifty years.
‘He wants you to implore guile and creativity by towing on the path nobody else in the department has. For instance, you’re a prospective brilliant microbiologist. Scientists say the flu is microbial. A little research here and there might leave you with a tantalizing topic,’ my roommate says. I didn’t want to ignore his casual yet brilliant suggestion.
‘You know what, you have a point, bro. I’m going full throttle with this opportunity. I hope there’s time to gather literature and data analysis for the task.’
My roommate and I smile and clip our knuckles in delight
