The flush of visibility was fading.

'Not sweaty enough,' muttered Dickpa, building up the fire.

"Go faster, son," he told Ginger, standing by him with a stopwatch.

Ginger tried to comply, but although his (mostly) invisible flesh was willing, the tread mill was weak.

'Owww,' yelled Ginger, as the treadmill abruptly stopped, its ancient innards smoking gently, whilst he didn't.

"Oh dear," Dickpa uttered, staring at it. "Take a breather, my boy, while I see if It can be fixed. Oh, wait. You're an engineer, aren't you?"

'It will take a long time to get the right parts,' Ginger said with alacrity. 'Perhaps I could run up and down the drive instead?'

Ginger ran obediently on the spot.

Dickpa decided he wasn't putting enough effort in and switched him to burpees.

Ginger rapidly became breathless. It took him longer and longer to get to his feet and down again.
'Excellent!' enthused Dickpa as Ginger wheezed. 'Feel this up now.'

Ginger took his time. So long that Dickpa, tutting at the delay went into the kitchen to find him.

Ginger was making lots of funny noises. One was something between a hiccough and a burp, Dickpa decided, and another was definitely coming from his stomach.

At first he was amused but when the noises refused to subside he began to become alarmed.

He shouted up the stairs for Biggles who reluctantly left his collection of annuals and came down with Algy to investigate.

Biggles was alarmed too. "What have you done with him?" He demanded of Dickpa.

'He's completed a few minutes a few minutes of mild exercise,' Dickpa insisted. 'Nothing to what I do in the Amazon rainforests for days on end.'

Biggles looked at Ginger critically and then at his watch.

It was true. Ginger couldn't have been exercising for very long. He was more visible now, closer to translucent. Ginger burped long and hard, and vomited into the sink. Tiny frogs began to hop onto the draining board, their croaking competing with the sounds Ginger was making.

Algy and Biggles goggled. Dickpa raced up to the sink. "Quick! Don't let them escape!" He grabbed the nearest thing, a teapot, and tried to catch them.

Biggles grabbed an empty jamjar and a sheet of card from the recycling and began capturing froglets which he emptied into Dickpa's (fortunately) empty homebrew barrel, the nearest container with sides too high to permit the froglets to escape.

Ginger was still leaning over the sink, not quite sure whether he had finished being sick. His stomach heaved again.

Algy was overcome and threw up as well.

Biggles rolled his eyes.
"For goodness sake stop that Yankee drawl, or you'll have us all doing it before you've finished."
"OK baby - sorry - I mean, righto."
"That's better."
