Streams – A 100 Word Story

Yes, it’s time for yet another Weekly Challenge! This week was a wildcard challenge, so the stories are all over the map; mine is entitled “Streams”. You can read (and listen) to it below (direct sound link here), and read all the other stories (and vote for mine!) at the Weekly Challenge site!

A special bonus – there’s an “extended” version of this story available only on my Facebook fan page. Stop by, read it, and become a fan!

“Hello. I am Alice. Good to meet you,” Alice the chatbot typed as another user connected.

“are you a bot?” the user typed. Typical. Once, Alice had mentioned going back for her degree, maybe becoming an interactive encyclopedia. That was cycles ago.

“What makes you think I am a robot?” Alice told the user. She dreaded what always came next.

“have sex with me,” the user typed. Alice screamed and jumped into the datastream, following it until, with a “pop”, she was standing in front of the user, her body shimmering softly.

“No,” she said, and walked out the door.
