I had done it. I had created the world’s greatest robot. It would do anything you asked it to. I had named it BOB. I was about to begin testing when my phone began to flash. I ignored it and started testing.
“BOB, come over here!” I commanded.
The robot turned on but it seemed to be going backwards.
“Ma I ereh, ” BOB said once he had reached me.
I stared at him in disbelief. I thought for a second and then asked him to get me my sandwich.
” Ko ,” BOB said and then fetched it. This was amazing.
Thomas rounded the corner, panting for breath. He began to run at full belt down the cobbled paths. He could hear the giant’s booming voice as he took another corner. Thomas knew the city inside out and was heading towards the construction site. He glanced back briefly and saw that the giant was gaining on him with every step he took. He headed towards the cement pit. He leaped onto a wooden plank running across the pit. When he reached the other side he heard the giant roar. He looked back and saw the giants hands gripping onto a metal pole. Thomas turned, grinned and began to walk home.
Stick Man stumbled past some trees, glancing from side to side. Stick Man came from the Sticky Galaxy where metal was scarce. Stick Man decided to go on a mission to search for metal. He found his way to Milky Way Galaxy and ventured on his way to Earth. He stopped for a split second before his mouth fell open. There it was metal! Stick Man rushed over to the truck and started loading his spaceship with it. Stick Man was dreaming about what he would do with the metal when he heard someone shout. “Get back here you scumbag!” roared the man. Stick Man tried to run but he was stuck.
I limped down the broken streets of Galway. Each house had been torn apart all because of one stupid decision by Captain Short (who was actually quite tall). Thousands had died over a couple of words, but what if I was in charge? I wouldn’t have declared war against Britain and I most certainly wouldn’t have called the British lazy… on live tv! I was forced to fight in the war. I somehow made it out alive. From that day on I always swore that I would never let this happen again. But worse things were still to come.
