100 Word Challenge, Day 284

Isis never blinked as she considered the man before her. All of their intelligence suggested he was little more than a lab rat with some serious gambling debt. She had considered using that debt as a way to use him against Aldric, but never found the time to make it happen. Everything she had seen since his captivity suggested that he was weak and that he would give them whatever they asked for if they threatened him, but she was no longer sure of that. Maybe they had pushed him too hard, but she doubted that. He might not be the best physical specimen, but he had spirit, and that counted for a lot. “I don’t think we’ll need to do any shooting today, Doctor Murray, but why don’t you tell me what you need for a lab.”
