Terminals A, B, and C Are Without Power

7 Feb

What has happened?
The interrogator’s superior was a bureaucrat with a comfortable second layer on his stomach and a mustache. His scuffed, brown shoes were imported from Prague. In 1968.
What has happened?
The interrogator’s superior had hurried down into the basement after the horrific screaming had suddenly ceased. The orders were for the interrogator not to exterminate the subject.
What has happened?
The interrogator walked around the apparatus and jiggled wires helplessly.
What in Christ’s name has happened? Did you kill him?
The interrogator jiggled more wires.
No. Terminals A, B, and C are without power.
