Prompt for September 2, 2015

Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

“Day 476. This is Chief Biologist Stephanie Cramer. Our experimentation with trying to alter the genetic makeup of cells related to Organism Alpha has hit another roadblock. Earlier attempts at genetic manipulation had shown that the underlying DNA self-corrected after a single generation and that all genetic impurities had been removed from the DNA replication sequence. The ability to replicate this ability within humans would have meant the end of cancer as we know it, but the team has yet to identify the underlying genomic constructs that are the cause of the self-correction. In addition, Organism Alpha appears to have successfully removed itself from the custody of the U.S. government which was monitoring the situation for us. This information was not made known to the research team until forty-eight hours after the subject had escaped custody. As Organism Alpha was originally conceived from human DNA the ability of the subject to blend in with society is extremely high. The base and the surrounding towns and villages have been placed on high alert while the investigation continues. End of entry.”
