The Mosquito Man

In the month of May there were too much mosquitoes in New York City that's why the people were in danger. Mosquitoes were increasing by leaps and bounds. For killing the mosquitoes all the trials were done by scientists. In the lab of scientists Mr. Henry called a meeting again.

Mr. Henry- Mosquitoes are being too much so we should make a virus by which mosquitoes can be killed.

Mrs. Haley- But this virus may be harmful to the people.

Mr Henry- Don't worry about it. It will not affect human body we will spread the virus in the City.

In this experiment, scientists need a dengue mosquito to make antidote with the blood of the mosquito in the form of a virus. But mosquitoes were very heavy and dangerous too. They Attack only in nights and in the day they live in sewers of New York City. So scientists can catch the mosquito in the sewer only where all the wastage are loaded. If these mosquitoes will sting anyone then the person will hardly alive.

Mr. Jack- I will go there and catch the mosquitoes alive.

Next day Mr Jack went there with his all needed things and one man, named john, went with him. While walking in sewer, he was checking the mosquitoes with his mosquito finding machine and then the scanner of the machine showed positive signal. There were many mosquitoes and Mr Jack wore defence suit of iron in the path of him a stone was there and Mr Jack's leg slipped over that stone and he fell there. The mosquitoes went on increasing and cut down the whole body of Jack. John who was coming with Mr Jack contacted the offices work they are not capable to do it because their voice did not reach there. No voice is coming from their phones. In the sewer Mr Jack was not feeling good so he slipped there for almost 3 hours and after 3 hours he opened his eyes and came back to his home.

In the morning Jack went to bathroom and when he was bathing he felt very good and he found that his Wings are coming out from his back and his legs were being strong and he felt like he was having power like mosquitoes and he was feeling hungry. By seeing the people walking on road he tried to smell anything that goes from his window and started to sting blood from the human body and all people in New York City.

This news now is a curse for scientists where media saw Mr. Jack, they feel that he is human. This news has spread all over the New York City through newspapers.

Scientists tell media-

Mr. Prefix- I don't know how this happens.

Next day in the science lab-

Mr. Henry- I have seen him and I am sure that he is Mr Jack and I have made antidote, with the help of that we can destroy the demon. They were on the road at exact time and Mr Henry and some people with him take out his mask from his face and what is that all are surprised 'mosquito man' firstly shoot with the gun but he could not hit the mosquito man he is so scary.
