Friday 55 Flash Fiction #193 Slave......






He wasn't supposed to think.

He wasn't supposed to feel.

His sort just had to do as they were told.

Get on with it.

Nothing was too menial a task.

He would never be free.

Never have a wife and family.

Life would stay like this forever, until the end of time......

for the Robot.




Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Poor, poor robot. He has the hots for that microwave, but there will never be a life for them.

I don't know, some robotic and computer scientists are convinced the robots will eventually take over the world and make us slaves.

Robot can only dream of what might have been Misty ;)
