The Out Of This World Scientist

The Out Of This World Scientist

6 mins 221 6 mins 221

Mysteries are all over the place, here and there. Unknown are a greater percentage in the world, the latest problems with no solution making them a mystery. Most of the mystery are science-related and this is more difficult to solve.


As early as possible, college student marches in none uniform into their appropriate class as usual for the lecture. Soon the class was over with a heavy assignment to each student, because of the level of hardness all the student who went into that particular class came out frowning and hissing. The students did this as they exit the class with their various group of friends. A group of two girls and one boy came out with the same kind of face and sound till they got to one of the girls' houses who goes by the name Lilly.


 "What an out of this world assignment," Said Lilly and her two friends agreed with her because they were all given an assignment to be submitted on Monday, so they had two days before the deadline to finish up the assignment and submit on Monday, the deadline. The most annoying part of the assignment is, it is not a group assignment but a single person assignment. In order to ensure the student did the work themselves and no team copying, Mr David who was their science lecturer gave each student a different assignment. Lilly was a special student and as a special and favourite student of Mr David, she got a special and favourite student assignment. Meaning she got the hardest and almost impossible assignment. It was almost impossible and not impossible itself because in the science world nothing was impossible.


This three friends agreed to do their assignment together in the same lab despite fully knowing they had a completely different assignment which was a practical assignment. Before they agreed to everything on where, when and how they will do the assignment, they two friends of Lilly suggested they turn their assignment into a competition in order to see who would finish first and last but Lilly refused in fear she will get laughed at if she fails, for her assignment was an out of this world assignment and almost impossible. But later in the day, she agreed when her friends said they would help her if they finish or she helps them if she happens to finish first since she was the most brilliant one among them and not just among them but also in their class and if possible their college.


When one is either in big trouble or have something big to do tomorrow, tomorrow comes quickly than usual. When it was six sharp, Lilly's friends arrived at her house because it was the time they agreed to prepare all they would need for the little competition and then they get into business by seven. As said Lilly's friends' assignment was easy and they finished that day while Lilly had not even started. This made her angry and sad at the same time, that she asked them to leave. For the first time ever Lilly failed to do her assignment fast and first as she used to and this pained her the most. The deadline was fast approaching still she has not done it. Because she did not do her assignment she pretended to be sick when her friends came so they would go to school together as they always do. With how Lilly pretended well her friends believed her and even told everyone that asked about her that she was sick.


Mr David knew it was a lie so he called Lilly's two friends and gave them a message to deliver to Lilly. Mr. David was known to be strict on Lilly because he wants her to be the best, but the message he gave her friends to deliver to her was out of this world just like her assignment. Immediately after the lecture, Lilly's friends left school early so they would deliver the message to her and help her if she needs it. 


Without knocking Lilly's friends who go by the name Kelvin and Mia walked into her lab and met her working on her assignment.

"I thought you were really sick," Kelvin said as he moved closer with Mia.

With the shock of having her friends see her working on her assignment despite she told them she was really sick, she dropped the chemical she was holding and it poured on her assignment. She did not try to make excuses so she told them the truth and they also told her Mr. David said he would turn all her A's to F if she fail to bring her assignment tomorrow. With this Lilly started to cry, while crying her tears dropped on her assignment and it turns into a solid crystal. She immediately stopped crying and tried pouring water on it and then something happened. She smiles because she just did her assignment which was to turn something into anything that is valued in the world. Lilly was more than prepared to submit her assignment tomorrow.


The following day came and as usual Lilly's friends came for her and again found her lying sick on the bed. They asked her to stop pretending to be sick and go dress up. They believed she was not faking it when Lilly's mum told them she had a high fever last night. Mia and Kelvin decided to go to Mr David and explain why Lilly was still at home, and they did but he didn't believe them. The two friends left immediately for Lilly's house and when they got there Lilly already knew that Mr. David would not believe them since she faked to be sick before. Lilly got up slowly and took her assignment and left for school despite her friends told her not to as she was not in a shape to go anywhere. She rushed to her collage with a taxi since it was quite far and she does not have the strength to walk. She got to Mr David's office by 9:30 but he was not there and he would probably had left after waiting past the time he gave her which was nine sharp. Luckily she saw him leaving and rushed to him. Mr David was furious and refused to take her assignment but Lilly pleaded for one minute which he agreed thinking she would only waste it. Lilly took him the class and took bottled water and poured it into the assignment and it did what it did before. Mr David was speechless and left to call other teachers. Lilly knew she got an A because all her work always make 

Mr David go speechless and with that she gets an A.


 Lilly was asked to go home when they realized she was actually sick. Everyone send a get well cards for her, but Mr. David's card made her smile and cry. The card Mr. David sent her reads: "Sorry for not believing you were sick, l thought you were faking it so you won't submit your assignment. Really sorry. When you get well would you like to let the public know what you made, if yes then please let me know when you get well, until then get well "The Out Of This World Scientist" who did something out of this world."
