Go Back to Mystery Home 'Yellow Jackie' - A Science Mystery Story Page Title

You and Terry find Tomas preparing to take a mist shower in the Canary's cramped little shower room.

"This is disgusting," he says. He has taken off the shower head, and it's filled with what looks like algae. He distastefully scoops it clean with his finger.

"Just want to ask you a question or two about your illness," you say.

"I am not an ill person," he says. "I am just treated like one."

"Tell us what happened to you, then," Terry replies. "Jackie says she found you up on deck, in a state of shock - when was it? Yesterday?"

Tomas glares at him. "We have been pushing the boat very hard. I have been pushing myself very hard. But now I am better. That is all there is to it."
