Lead Head

Flash Fiction - Experiments can sometimes get heavy.


After discovering two liquids in Dr. Ingle’s lab, Agley was curious what they did. Being the curious type, he picked up the one labeled Transmute and drank it. The skin on his head turned into lead. Now overweighted, his head could no longer be supported by his neck and he fell to the ground. Had the other bottle been labeled it would have said “Lead Poisoning Antidote”, although Agley still would be too top heavy to drink it.
