Plausible Deniability

by David Mark Hebden

American Viral Immunologist, Wilson Meadows, working in France on a government AIDS project attempting to develop a cure for AIDS gets duped into joining a NAZI led secret group known as the VRIL Society located in Germany. Wilson's newly married French and very pregnant wife ends up in Germany at Wilson's side once he figures out the VRIL Societies real intentions involving germ warfare. Wilson and Angie develop a plan of action and are using a basement level closet to discuss it when, Angie, suddenly pulls two loaded handguns from her purse. Angie, tells Wilson, you can never be too careful. Wilson's response to the weapons, "Great, all the beautiful young women in the world and I get Annie Oakley pregnant."
