Chapter 11: Lovely Assistant Coming Through
"Oh, God help us… we're in the hands on engineers." Malcolm smirked at Alyssa as they were moving down the tracks.
Alyssa smiled, "Shouldn't you at least try to be nice? You might enjoy this."
"That would mean I would be wrong and uh…. we both know that isn't the case."
Alyssa rolled her eyes and simply resorted to looking out the windows and trying to enjoy the tour. It took only about a minute for them to come to a massive gate. There were giant red letters on the top and as the two huger, wooden doors opened, the interactive CD-ROM spat out the words: "Welcome to Jurassic Park".
"What have they got in there, King Kong?" Ian remarked as their car drove through the gate.
The cars continued to move until they got to a certain area and the radio's began giving them information again.
"If you look to the right, you will see a herd of the first dinosaurs on our tour, called Dilophosaurus."
All of a sudden, Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler got very excited. Alan quickly turned to look out the window, "Dilophosaurus!"
Ellie followed his lead, "Oh, shit!"
"One of the earliest carnivores, we now know Dilophosaurus is actually poisonous." Their virtual tour guide continued to offer them information, "Spitting its venom at its prey, causing blindness and eventually paralysis, allowing the carnivore to eat at its leisure. This makes Dilophosaurus a beautiful, but deadly addition to Jurassic Park."
Alyssa turned to Ian and whispered in his ear, "I don't see it…"
Ian chuckled and whispered back to her, "Maybe they're invisible now too."
"Alan… where?" Ellie asked. Apparently Alyssa was not the only one who could not spot the dinosaurs.
Alan hit the door as their car carried them past the attraction, "Damn."
The car kept moving until they approached one that had much larger fences and lots of flashing lights on top of the fence. Alan climbed in further back so he could look out of the left without having to climb over Alyssa and Ian.
They all waited patiently and no one really spoke. Alyssa supposed they were all trying to listen carefully to see if they could at least hear this one. She was growing less impressed with Mr. John Hammond as she listened to the birds chirp softly in the distance.
Ian finally sighed and decided to break the silence, but he kept his tone quiet, "God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs."
Ellie nodded and winked at Alyssa briefly before turning her attention back out the window and adding her input, "Dinosaurs… eat man. Woman inherits the earth."
Both Alan and Ian turned to look at her and Alyssa just giggled quietly.
A man (not the tour guide) began to speak through the speaker, "We'll try to tempt the Rex now. Keep watching the fence."
A bleating goat was being raised into the paddock and Alyssa's hands went to cover her mouth. A small fence around the goat began to lower and Alyssa buried her head into Ian's chest, "Tell me when it's ok to look. I don't want to see that."
"T-Rex doesn't want to be fed. He wants to hunt. Can't just suppress 65 million years of gut instinct." Alan commented.
Ian's fingers began playing with the tips of Alyssa's hair, "Looks like you don't have to worry too much. Rex doesn't seem too hungry."
Alyssa moved off of him when she was sure that she would not have to see the poor goat devoured. Ian stood up and moved his face closer to the camera in the front of the jeep. He was sure Hammond was watching, "Uh, uh, now, eventually you do plan to have dinosaurs…on your, on your dinosaur tour, right?" He began tapping the glass, "Hello? H-hello?" He exhaled on the camera and continued on, "Yes?"
Alyssa tugged on his belt and pulled him back next to her. He laughed slightly as she wagged her finger at him in disapproval, "Be nice."
He winked and smiled, "I'll try." They both knew he was not going to try at all. "See, the tyrannosaur, uh, uh, doesn't obey any set patterns, or, or park schedules. The essence, uh , of chaos." He tapped on his leg and the side of the door slightly.
Dr. Sattler was turned around in her seat slightly so she could look back at the other three passengers, "Um, I'm still not clear on chaos. What does that mean?"
"Oh, oh, it simply deals with, uh, unpredictability in complex systems. The short hand is the Butterfly Effect. A butterfly can flap its wings in Peking, and in central park you get rain instead of sunshine."
Ellie laughed and made a motion that let Ian know everything he just said went straight over her head.
Ian laughed, "I go too fast. I did a fly-by,"
"I missed it." She admitted.
"Give me that glass of water. We're going to conduct an experiment. It should be still. The car's bouncing up and down, but that's okay. And I do believe it's time I got some help from my lovely assistant." Ian handed off the glass to Alyssa who smiled at Ellie.
"Do you remember this one?" Ian asked her.
Alyssa chuckled, "I do." She took Ellie's hand and had her hold it still, "Now put your hand flat like a hieroglyphic."
Alyssa dipped put the glass of water close to Ellie's raised hand, "Now, say a drop of water falls on your hand. Which way is the drop of water going to fall off? Which finger?"
"Thumb I'd say."
Alyssa dipped her finger in the water and allowed the drop to fall onto Ellie's hand, "Okay. Now freeze your hand. Don't move. I'm going to do the same thing, start with the same place again. Which way is it going to roll off?"
"Let's say back. The same way."
Alyssa dropped another drop of water onto her hand. She mustered her best surprised gasp and let it out when the water rolled off in a different way, "It changed." Alyssa giggled and set the glass of water back. She turned to Ian, "How'd I do?"
Ian gave her a kiss that was cut short, because Alyssa heard Dr. Grant clear his throat, "You were spectacular."
"Now back to the experiment, It changed. Why? Because tiny variations: uh, the orientation of the hairs on your hand, um the amount of blood distending your vessels, and imperfections in the skin. They never repeat and vastly affect the outcome. That's what?"
"Unpredictability." Ellie answered.
Alan opened the door and began to climb out.
