Reid was BORED. it was his vacation time. the team (Mostly Hotch) said he was really stressed, and needed a rest. Nothing was on TV. he didn't want to call his team, because they may have been on a case. He decided to go work in his lab. Then he remembered! Kevin is off. he called kevin and asked if he wanted to hang out in his lab with him. in reid's lab, he had the harmless chemicals and herbs exposed. The dangerous ones, however, were locked up in a cabinet with a hazardous waste sighn on it. it had a really BIG lock on it. those things meant bussiness. kevin got over. he got a glass of cola and went down to the lab with reid. they had loads of fun mixing random chemicals and seeing what they did. after they had mixed virtually every harmless chemical, they started eyeing the hazardous chemical cabinet. reid was hesitant, but eventually caved, and agreed to ONE dangerous experiment. They put together a random mixture of amanitas, castor beans, belladonna, adder venom, hemlock, tubarine and codeine. mixed with a hint of water, it bubbled and turned a brownish color. they were satisfied with that. Just then, a stray cat jumped in through the window! kevin and reid successfully chased him back out. kevin finished his cola, and then the two discussed star trek episodes. kevin later went home, and reid went to bed. the next morning, he got a frantic call from garcia.
"omigosh, baby boy, kevin passed out at work today, they took him to the hospital and he got really agressive, and complained of his mouth burning, and then he started having violent hallucinations."
"hold on garcia"
reid rushed to the lab and picked up their poisonous experiment. he sniffed it. it wasnt their experiment, it was the cola! Kevin drank a mixture of the world's deadliest toxins! Reid rushed to the ER. As soon as he got there, Morgan started talking to him. "they found a mixture of deadly chemicals in his system...some that aren't even supposed to be in the U.S, like-"
"Amanitas, castor beans, belladona, adder vanom, hemlock, tubarine, and codeine."
"Yeah. wait, how did you-"
"Where's doctor Pepper?"
"Over there talking to Hotch."
Reid walked over just in time to hear the doctor say "he contracted a case of Mortifera-X. it is contagious and...if no cure is found for the certain compound that he's ingested by next week, it will be terminal. Reid looked over at Garcia. She was hugging Jordan and crying. Jordan looked up from garcia when reid walked over. "What happened?"
"I think Kevin drank an experiment."
"from your lab? I thought the hazards were locked up"
"We got a little crazy"
"What's the disease?"
"There's a cure...RIGHT?"
"There will be."
and with that, he went back home. he searched all over his lab for anything that could stabilize Mortifera-X. then, he realized that there were hundreds of chemicals to look at. he needed help. he called Jordan,Morgan and Garcia. Hotch gladly gave them up. other agents could handle their jobs. While they searcheed through the chemicals, reid got a call from dr. Pepper. most of the chemicals stabilized eachother. the only problems left were the Tubarine, Codeine and Hemlock. "that's great!" he replied. "What's great?" said Garcia with hope. he told her what Dr. Pepper said.
"but isn't his mortifera still terminal?"
"somewhat, but that particular compound has a reverse. it's called medicus, found in the Iordania flower, indigenous to a desert island off the coast of Hawaii."
"Guess we're going to hawaii." said Morgan.
