The wind howled outside the house, rattling the windowpane.  I set my candles down, one on each side of the old typewriter. I leaned forward and read the story so far.  Alex was right.  Everything I had typed had come true.  But her idea was totally dumb.  

“Type!” she ordered, standing behind me, her hand on my shoulders.  I glanced back at her.

“Alex—haven’t you ever heard of coincidence?”

“Oooh—big word!” she replied sarcastically.

“Are you sure you’re ready for such a big word?”  I ignored her remark.

“A coincidence is when two things happen by accident,” I explained.  “For example, I type that it’s stormy out—and then it starts to storm.  That’s called a coincidence.”  She shoved me toward the typewriter.

“Prove it,” she insisted.  “Go ahead, Zackie.  Type the next sentence, and let’s see if it comes true.”  She squeezed my shoulders.  And then added, “Or are you chicken?”

I reached for the handwritten pages of the story.  And I found the next sentence.  Then I raised my hands to the old typewriter and typed it in:

THEY HEARD A KNOCK AT THE DOOR.

I lowered my hands to my lap.  And sat back.  “See?”  I sneered.  “Any more bright ideas?”

Then I heard a knock on the door!

I went into the kitchen.  My housekeeper, Mrs. Fridgeflake, was busy making radishes look like rosebuds.

“I’m going to pop down to Carmel and visit Taffy Plimpton for the weekend,” I said.

“Did she invite you?”

“Yes.” I showed her Taffy’s letter.

“I see she didn’t invite Hoot,” said Mrs. Fridgeflake.  “That’s good.  Hoot wouldn’t want to miss the Saturday cartoons.  They’re going to show her favorite tomorrow.  The Owl and the Pussycat.”

Hoot hooted.  It was settled.  I went to my office and grabbed my red telephone.  It’s the one I use for emergency calls.  I called Taffy.  She answered.

I said, “This is Olivia.  I got your letter and I’m taking your case. I’, on my way.”

I hung up the phone.  I never gave a client a chance to protest.  Taffy was my first out-of-town client.  I stuffed Taffy’s file and some clothes into an overnight bag and dropped a bunch of my business cards into my pocketbook.  Then I flung my boa over my shoulders, said good-bye to Hoot and Mrs. Fridgeflake, and dashed out the door. 

“Going somewhere?” the doorman asked, as I flung open the door.

“Yes, I am going to Carmel.”

One afternoon, Franny’s mom cautiously poked her head into Franny’s room.  When poking one’s head into a mad scientist’s lab, it’s always best to do so cautiously.

“Franny, honey, I have somebody I want you to meet.”

“I’m kind of busy here, Mom.  I’m working on a machine that will make dirty socks smell worse.”

“Why would you want that?” Franny’s mom asked.

Franny paused, then said, “I guess you wouldn’t Mom.  But that’s how mad science works.”

“Okay, but I just thought you might like to meet your new lab assistant.”

“A lab assistant?”  Franny said, totally forgetting about the sock experiment.  More than anything, she has always wanted her very own lab assistant. 

“Well,” her mom said, “he’s not a pure Lab.  He’s also part poodle, part Chihuahua, part beagle, part spaniel, part shepherd, and part some kind of weasly thing that’s not even exactly a dog.” 

Franny stared blankly at the think Mom had as the end of a leash.

“But he’ll always be interested and excited about your projects, sweethearts, and you can teach him to be your assistant.  His name is Igor.”

“Oh. It’s a dog,” Franny said flatly, looking at Igor like he was half a glass of warm water.  “I thought you meant…”

Fran took another dose of her invisibility formula and she faded out of sight.  Franny ran past a door on which the robot had left some graffiti.  It was badly spelled, badly drawn, and not at all clever.  “In addition,” Franny said, “it’s probably inaccurate.  If the principal really did have a rubber butt, surely by now they would have flown her to consult with a medical expert in Switzerland.”

Franny ran past gigantic spit wads that the robot had left dangling from the ceiling and dripping down the walls.

“Spit wads,” she said.  “Can you imagine wasting perfectly good spit this way?  Spit, like most secretions, is hours of fun for a child with a microscope.  Only an idiot would squander it this way.”

Spitty robot footprints led right up to the library door, and Franny actually felt an unfamiliar wave of fear wash over her.  “Not the books,” she said.  Franny slid quietly into the library.  She knew the robot was in there somewhere.  She rounded a corner and saw the robot happily destroying books.  It was clear to Franny that this mechanical imbecile would not stop until it had destroyed all the books.
