Mrs. Sloto was in tears. She held Mr. Sloto in her arms; he was unresponsive and smelling of burnt circuitry. Mr. Sloto had faced the MegaVirus head to head and had succumbed to the power of the malignant virus. Mrs. Sloto didn’t know what to do; should she call an ambulance or a computer repair agent? She called the only person that came to mind: Victor Fluke – the creator of Mr. Sloto.
Mrs. Sloto dialed the number and asked for Victor. Victor answered the phone, “Hello? Who is this?”.

“This is my chance to prove them wrong” said the homeless man. “I’m no loser inventor; I’ll turn this machine into one of the greatest inventions of all time!”
