Daily Darkness: Denial, a sci-fi story

Hey everyone,

Hope you’re having a great day! I sure am. ^_^

Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for my friend down below…

Denial

 

Android 717 tried to open its right eye.

ERROR.

Diagnostics:

Visual cortex damaged.

Soundcard offline.

Speech processor malfunction.

Motor functions offline.

All around it, voices mocked. Jeered. Echoed. They rang in circles, each syllable a penny rattling in a tin can. 717’s one open eye looked into the air.

Black clouds opened up, shedding acid rain. The attackers ran.

717’s skin could stand the burn. Its internal components weren’t so lucky. Cracked plating let a sizzle leak inside.

“No-no-no-no-no.” Even the android couldn’t tell if this was a fervent prayer, or merely a glitch. Didn’t matter. Nobody stopped to listen.
