....Gun. Of course it's a gun. Because that's what I'm going to have to do. I'm going to have to kill people to save the human race.
"Lex?" Jonathan asks.
"Yes?" I return an answer.
"You will be ok having to shoot this right?" He asks with a concerned expression covering his face.
"Jonathan" I coo, "I will be just fine"
He nods and sets the gun on the table. The next thing he pulls out is some sort of device.
"Phone" he grunts simply as he hands it to me.
"Watch" he says as he pulls out a watch and puts it on my wrist. He pulls out a bulletproof best and sets it on the table near the gun. My stomach drops. This is a dangerous job. I could get killed. But it's worth it. This is what I want right? I want to stop the death of humanity.
The next thing he pulls out is some sort of..... I don't know really. It's like a little black box. It's about the size of a large jewelry box. It has a little outline of a triangle on it.
"What's that?" I ask, my notice full of wonder.
"Watch" he says simply. He places the box on an open spot on the floor.
"Lex" he says, "press that little green button on your watch, and say 'power on the robot'"
I look at him with my confused expression. He nods, prodding me on.
I sigh and press the green button.
"Power on the robot" I say into the watch. It feels so weird....talking into a watch. You should try it somtime. You might get a few weird looks but..... You know what? scratch that idea.
I hear a quiet hum as the triangle outline glows green on the box. It starts to tremble slightly and all of a sudden it starts 'unfolding' that's the only word I can find to describe it. It's so amazing. When it's done 'unfolding' it is a robot the size of me. It is a robot resembling a male. He has brown hair and brown eyes. With the synthetic skin it's hard to tell it apart from a real human. I stare at it for a moment.
"Hello" it says in a deep handsome human voice.
"Hi" I say not knowing what to say.
"What's your name?" It asks.
"Alexia Monroe" I answer, "... Or just lex"
I see a little glow in his eyes as a camera in his eyes scan me. To make sure it's really me and stuff.
"Hello lex" his beautiful voice coos.
I smile at Jonathan who is also smiling. I mean ya this is cool but it is also a bit overwhelming. I had never known anything about these wondrous creations. I guess technology is both a blessing and a curse.
"What's your name?" I ask my new friend.
"Your choice" he shrugs.
"How about Trevor?" I ask.
"Sounds good to me" he answers with a smile.
Jonathan smirks than speaks into his watch.
"Power on the robot" he says.
Within a few seconds I hear a knock at the door.
"Come in!" Jonathan yells.
The door opens and a blond girl walks in. I guess this is Jonathan's robot.
"Clara" Jonathan says as she walks in, "this is lex"
"Hello lex" she says as she extends her hand for me to shake.
I shake it with a smile.
"Hello trev" she says to my robot.
"Wait what? Whoah, whoah, whoah..... Wait a second how's she know that?" I ask confused.
"Well," Jonathan answers, "the robots 'brains' are connected so they know things like names and stuff, where each other are. They can share information and cool stuff like that"
"Cool" I say.
"Well" Jonathan breaks the scilence cause I g me to jump a little, "you should get some rest"
He hugs me and I whisper in his ear, "goodnight"
"Goodnight" he whispers back.
As he walks out clara follows him. I walk to my bed and trev follows me. At least not I won't have to spend all my time alone.
"Power off the robot" I say and trev smiles at me before he is transformed beck into a box.
That night I sleep happily for the first time in a long while.
