The Hottest Sauce

Pitr rationed out the precious crimson fluid, fingers gripping the control knob. One drop. Two… Oh, good lord, dare he?

Yes! Three!

Hands trembling, he stopped the drip. The bottom of the tube bulged oily red liquid.

He took the jar from under the drip, carefully mixed it, then discarded the stirrer. The jar felt warm and glowed faintly. He dipped carrots into the sauce. They hissed.

The grad student’s eyes bulged. “Don’t you want to try it first, Professor?”

“Don’t be ridiculous, I dislike spicy food. Wait, stop!“

The student relaxed.

“Don’t eat until the camera’s going. OK, now.”
