Edge: A Free Flash Fiction

1 min read

“Answer me,” I repeat, hating my voice.In the chair, he struggles against the ropes, grunts, but doesn’t speak.I extend my fifth arm. The scalpel at the end glints in the flickering fluorescents. My servos whine in the quiet room.He glances at them, at my camera, then down to his scuffed leather shoes.I synthesize more words, the blades sliding closer to him. “Why did you make me into an ugly robot?” My third arm reaches from behind, grasps his soft human hair, pulls his head back.”You’re beautiful,” he says as the scalpel slides across his throat.Please note that the 100 Word Story Podcast is changing URLS to https://oneadayuntilthedayidie.com/!Based around Laurence Simon’s weekly challenge for the 100 word-stories podcast.
