PostSubject: Humanity   Fri Jan 20, 2012 2:52 pm


The year is 2050. Thirteen years ago, a scientist discovered a way to bring
back the dead. It was perfect. They could relearn the forgotten
memories and knowledge, and even converse with others successfully. But,
when one idiot messed with the formula, he started a chain of events
that nearly killed humanity.



October 23, 2050.

This is the first page of my journal, to be updated monthly at least. I have
been working on preparing my androids for activation. Kelle is a
beautiful piece of work, perfect in proportion. Her hair is particularly
lovely, the perfect shade of red, with green highlights. Sarana is
lovely as well, with soft, green eyes, and a very, very cute face. The
youngest of the three, made for my sister, is Thera. Thera is a cute
little girl, with bright purple hair. If I have coded them correctly,
they should be almost human... And more. My thirteen year old sister,
Salisa, is young and silly, but almost as smart as I. She has found some
errors that would have made all three into killing machines, thus
saving our lives- and countless others. I will try activating Thera
first, for if she needs recoding, she should be the easiest to restrain.



October 24, 2050.

It works! Thera is all that she was made to be! Her personality, or at
least the three points that were hard-coded, are exactly as they should
be! The randomizer for the rest worked as well, although it had to try
twice to get a non-psychopathic personality, but that is to be expected
of the first try. The others shall be activated later today, and if all
goes well, I will have three androids made, the first ever! Although, I
think I'll change the proportions on Kelle's body, first. Don't want her
to have trouble balancing.



Later:

Kelle and Sarana are activated! They are much more alert than Thera, but that
is likely a result of the ages I made them, mentally and physically.
Kelle is 18 and and Sarana is 16. The two hard-coded rules have taken
effect successfully: 1: You shall not harm a human being without direct
orders from Larethi Were. 2: You shall protect any human nearby from
harm, except under the command of Larethi Were. Larethi is my name, of
course. The only problem I can see is space, my small underground home
is not that large, especially considering it is near to what was once a
graveyard, before the creation of S2965, the resurrection serum. Such an
odd stuff. I would love to get my hands on some of it, to examine it.



October 26 2050.

I have gotten permission from the city to expand my home, for the trade
of my research into an unexplored use of S2965. They honestly believe
that this is a hard condition to accept. ‘tis an odd thing, opportunity.
I'm scheduled as well to speak about my androids to the government
tomorrow, to get it so that I can't have my work taken, although I'm
pretty sure Sarana would kill them if they tried to take her, hard-code
or not. I will return after my speech.



-My speech-


"The androids that you are about to see are not just robots, but truly
sentient. All of my wiring and coding is copied from not only the
physical human brain, but from psychological studies as well." I said,
as Sarana walked in, followed by Salisa, Kelle, and Thera, in that
order. Sarana had her lovely hair out, while Kelle had hers in a
ponytail. Thera copied my sisters favorite style, with two ponytails on
either side of her head and another, smaller ponytail in back. "This is
Sarana, the second android that I activated from the coding bed. Thera
is the youngest, at the physical and mental age of ten. Kelle is my best
work of body-sculpting, although she refuses to accept this as fact..
The other is my sister, without whom we would probably be dead by now
because of a few minor coding errors." Sarana smiled, as did the others.
They sat down in the chairs laid out beside me, as I took out the notes
on my androids. "The small robot here will hand you these papers, my
notes I took while researching. I am sorry that I am unable to include
the schematics to the soul matrix -which is how I have imitated the
human being with a .06 margin of error,- but I am sure you understand
why those cannot be allowed to leave my research and experimentation
facility." The hover-bot, which I designed myself, handed out the
papers. As they looked over them, I pressed a button on the wall to my
left, causing a hologram projector to activate. I messed with it for a
total of ten seconds, and continued with my speech, "I will explain the
process of body-sculpting, which I used to create the body that each of
my androids inhabit. Body-sculpting starts with a metal skeleton, I have
found that bio-metal works best. Once the skeleton is laid out, you
begin adding the processors, soul matrix, and such, adding temporary
padding to where it is needed. This is followed by the motor controls,
synthetic muscles, and circulatory system, as shown on page three,
diagram four." One of the people cleared his throat. "Sir? You have a
question?"


"Yes, I'm sure most of us already know this, but I must have not been
informed. What exactly is the reason that this... 'Soul matrix's'
schematics could not be brought here?"


"Sir, until my work is protected, anyone could pick those up at any time,
memorize them, and go and create their own androids. While this does not
sound as bad as I make it out to be, please consider this: I am the one
who design all of them, and still my much younger sister was able to
save lives by simply pointing out errors that not even I discovered.
Just imagine, then, the destruction that could be caused by someone with
the schematics, but not the proper materials or intellect to use them.
And we know all-to-well that there are those who would try, seeing as
I've made it public."


The man looked at me oddly. "Then why not bring them here for safekeeping?"

"Because sir, no offense, the protection in my home far exceeds that of even
this building, with hundreds of tripwires, a relay to send messages
directly to Kelle if someone intrudes, and a large swarm of other,
smaller robots, I'm quite sure that no one on this planet except me and
my family could get twenty feet into that building."


The man smiled, leaning back in his chair a bit. "I like your initiative. Continue."

"Thank you, sir. After the motor functions are added, synthetic flesh and skin
are added. Then comes the actual 'Sculpting' process. Once the proper
amount of body parts are added, the outer layer can then be altered to
the Sculptors desire. I would also like to point out that the androids
are by then capable of all basic human functions except movement and
thought. They are, at this point, machines, like a computer. Once the
body is sculpted in its entirety, the shape, gender, name, and other
such basic details of the identity are uploaded to the soul matrix. This
includes the safety rules and basic knowledge, as well as a
‘personality randomizer.’ The randomizer is a special program that
alters some of the pathways and code segments into new, unique,
patterns, making each mind different. Finally, the soul matrix is
activated, and the android awakes in three minutes and two point five
seconds."


The one who had spoken before stood up. "This process, while very
interesting, has two things I would like explained further. First, what
is a soul matrix?"


"A soul matrix is a very specialized, miniaturized, and complicated
supercomputer. The soul matrix that each android in this room uses took
three months of focused work, not including tweaking afterwards. There
is no personality in a soul matrix, it is just a holder. The pathways,
though, are all in there, waiting to be activated. A soul matrix could,
indeed, be activated before the randomizer was uploaded, but then you’d
have something like an infant that couldn’t learn. The randomizer
includes a recode that makes the soul matrix function. Basically, the
soul matrix is the brain of the android, and the randomizer turns it
on."


"Okay, that's exactly what I wanted to know. Second, how can you prove to us that they are indeed sentient?"

"Sir, I shall respond with a question myself. How can I prove that I am sentient?"

"You bring up a good point. We must test them, of course, but for now, they
are considered sentient, and your work will be supported and protected."


"Thank you, sir. When shall the testing be?"

"Within a month, if possible, but, as a sign of our support and hopes for a
good result, we shall let them decide." The other men in the room
nodded.


"Understood."

"This hearing is as of now officially over. You may go."

The others and I left, back to my home.

My speech was quite successful, as you can see. I need to sleep now, that was tiring.


{Real time.}

November 1, 2050.

As I woke up, I felt a wait on my chest. Sarana had snuck into the bed
again while I was asleep. She has a habit of doing that. I don't really
mind. Sarana has apparently declared herself my girlfriend, I’m not sure
if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I gently woke her, and as she
sat up, I realized that, of all things, she was naked! Now, yes, I did
make her body, and I think I did very well with certain... parts. I had
to make them as real as possible, right?. But, still, that was when she
wasn't really a living, breathing girl. Now that there was a mind in the
body, it was a little... startling. "Um... Please put on a shirt...
Please? You're beautiful, but... um.... uh..." Gah! I thought I was
supposed to be a genius, and there I was, staring at a naked girl like
an idiot! I have discovered that the mere presence of an attractive
female can cause instantaneous brain failure in human males. Thankfully,
she put on a shirt when I asked, smiling about something. I considered
asking her what it was, but decided against it. She’d most likely laugh
and not tell me.


So I got up and ate, looking at my TV wall. I watched the news, and
realized that I was supposed to go in for the research today. "Hey,
Kelle, Sarana, watch Salisa and Thera for me, I'll be back in few hours.
I've got some work to do." I said, as I put on my lab coat. Yes, I do
actually wear a white lab coat. Because of the simple fact that lab
coats are awesome. I got in my car, an old one of unknown origin. As I
drove to the building, I wondered how the serum worked. But little did I
know that I wasn't to find out anything about the serum except for the
one thing I could do without.


-At the lab-

I walked in the doorways, the sterilizing field crackling over my skin. I
pulled on my gloves and went to the table. Around it were two female
researchers, and one male. As I walked near, I saw him twitch. I ignored
it, thinking that this job must be stressful, considering the
difficulty of the serum. I shouldn't have ignored it. And I definitely
should have taken that little laugh I heard as a bad sign, but I thought
maybe he had just thought of something funny. I was wrong, very wrong.
Rare for me, but it happens to everyone. I was reading the charts on the
wall, when he yelled something incomprehensible, and swallowed the
altered formula that he’d been working on. The two other scientists
tried to help him as he screamed in pain, but to no avail. He clawed at
the table, his body changing. He started laughing, in the lost scream of
the insane. I immediately backed away to the door, hitting the
emergency button many, many times, very, very fast. As the alarm blared,
he clawed at the two women, getting both of them in the face. I ran out
the door as fast as I could, locking it behind me, for I had seen his
suddenly appearing claws go
through their heads. I told the security guards all that had happened. They ran a
pair of scanners over me, and told me to go home as fast as possible,
and they would handle it. I slammed the door of my car open, slammed it
shut, and sped home as fast as I could. I locked the door behind me,
taking of my coat and letting it drop to the floor.


Sarana was cleaning up a mess in the main room, probably caused by Salisa and
Thera. I told her what happened, and she was concerned, running to me to
see if I was hurt. When Kelle came in and I told her, she had nearly
the same reaction. I wasn't hurt, a fact I would never regret.

||Chapter Two||

November 2, 2050.

When I woke up the next morning, I found Salisa and Thera standing beside my
bed, holding a tray of food. It was my birthday, and she had gotten
permission to help cook from Kelle. They gave me the food, and started
to talk my head of. Salisa has a habit of doing that. When they finally
finished talking about what they and Kelle had planned for my day, I
was, unfortunately, reminded of the events of the previous day, and that
I would have to go in and explain that morning. When I explained why I
had to go on my birthday, Salisa gave me sad look. I told her that I'd
be back soon. It was only a small bit of explaining, seeing as I had
left immediately. Then I got up and told them all that I'd be back in an
hour or two.


When I got to the building again, I was surprised to see a total of ten
armed guards around the doors. Luckily for me, one of them was from
yesterday, though the others were new. He let me past, but not into the
building. "Sir, I suggest you don't even look in there, for you're own
mental health."


I was surprised. Surely they should have been able to stop one man. "What happened?"
He pointed to a building to his right, and said "Just go there, the others will explain."
I didn't really understand the reason for all this, it was just one
crazed scientist. When I went into the indicated building, I saw, of all
things, two cages, one of them twice the size of the other. Both were
covered, and an odd growling noise came from both. I looked at the rest
of the room, and saw half of the same people from my speech, including
the one who asked the questions. He spoke first, "Professor Were, it is
good to see that you are still alive, and also human."


I was a little confused, seeing as the second one should be obvious. "Human? Sir, please explain."

"In a moment. I'm going to show you, instead," he gestured to the cages,
"Men, remove the sheets." Two armed guards pulled the sheets of off the
cages. I immediately wished they hadn't. In the cages were the three
that I had met yesterday, the male in the smaller cage. Actually, it
would be more appropriate to say that these... things... sort of
resembled them. Each was covered in blood, the male in the most, and all
of them bitten in various places. The male growled and jumped at the
cage wall. The other two did pretty much the same, but slower, as if
they had more trouble, though they looked in better condition than the
male. "What- what happened to them!?" I yelled, almost jumping back.


"I don't know, that is for us to decide later. Now, I am going to ask you
some questions, and you are going to do your best to answer them.
Understood?"


"Understood." I nodded, trying hard not to look at what were once three intelligent, successful people.

"First, did Jeref act unusual in anyway before the incident?"

I assumed that Jeref was the name of the male scientist. "Nothing that I
can think of- No, wait, he was laughing under his breath when I came in.
I didn't think much of it at the time... He also twitched a little as
well, but I believed it to be stress." I am far, far to trusting.


"I understand your reasoning. It turned out that you were wrong, but you still tried to make sense of it. Continue."

"I was examining some charts, he added something to the formula, and then
yelled out, not really a word, just a shout of noise, and drank it. When
he started screaming in pain, the others tried to help him, but they
could do nothing."


"Yes, the cameras caught this."

"I hit the emergency button at least twenty times in a row, and bolted for
the door when he clawed at the other two. He- he cut- oh god- he cut
through their h-heads." I finished, unable to hold my sadness and fear
of what he did.


"This all matches up. Do you know what he could have added?"

"N-no sir." I replied, still shaken.

"Whatever he added had extreme effects, and not in a good way. What you see in
that cage is almost already dead, without a single bullet. The serum
killed him, and then did it's job, bringing him back. As this." He
gestured to the cage. "Something spread this to the other two, although
our cameras were attacked by it beforehand. They are like him, although
the death seems to be stronger- he must have gotten both at once, or the
effect is different only for the following generations."


I was amazed and disgusted by these facts."Sir. What happened in the other building to need a ten man guard?"

"I was getting to that. These creatures, like the zombies of legends and
stories, seem to crave human flesh, attacking and trying to devour
anyone who entered the building. They got ten of our other men, only one
man from the original team is still alive. The others, so far, have not
changed like these two. We have sent their bodies to be cremated, just
in case.”


“I-I don’t know what to say. I’m... sadden by this. Looking at them, I... I hate to say it, but I think they’d be better off...”

“I understand. And I agree, but they did not seem to die when we tried. I want you to try and figure out what happened to them.”

“Understood.” I said. “But... I think that room should be safe, as long as there are no bodies in there.”

“Do you need to go in there to do this?” The man asked, as the guards put the covers back over the cages.

“Yes. I want to see if there’s anything still in the vial that he drank the
serum from.” The man signaled to a guard to let me in, and I walked into
the room. I almost vomited, the room was so horrible. There was blood
everywhere, and drops of it even dripped down the walls. I walked
carefully in, and pulled a glove out of my coat pocket. I put it on and
pick up the vial, looking in. Empty. That meant I had nothing. There
wasn’t anything to be added to the formula yesterday, even. I carefully
got a little bit of blood into the vial. I left the room, still
shuddering. “I’ll need to take this to my lab. I can’t work in there.” I
told the men, and left.


When I got back home, I stood inside the door way for a moment. Salisa
noticed me first. “Larethi! You’re back! We were beginning to worry!”
She came to hug me, but stopped when she saw the vial. “What’s in there?
Is that... Blood?” She peered closer.


“Yes. I... I don’t want to think about it, I need to get this into the
scanner immediately.” I said, and my sister moved to let me through. She
followed me into the scanner room. When I put the vial into the
scanner, it took exactly two minutes and four seconds to examine.
“Nothing.... There’s nothing in this blood that’s unusual!?” I said,
confused. “That’s... impossible...” For the next 6 hours, I ran
different tests on the blood, trying to find the cause. All I could find
is a minor variation of the common flu. “How can there be nothing
unusual... Hmm.” Sarana walked into the room with a concerned look on
her face.


“What’s wrong, Thi?” She said, using her pet name for me. “You’ve been in here for six hours!”


I sighed, and put down the vial. “One second.” I sterilized my hands and
clothes, and walked over to her. I then explained to her what had
happened to the three scientists. “And that vial of blood is absolutely
normal. Not a single thing unusual about it. Only one possible thing,
and this is most definitely not the common flu.” I said.


Her face changed from concern to fear to disgust and finally to sadness as I
spoke. “That’s... horrible! Those poor people!” She said.


“I know. Don’t tell Thera or Salisa, I don’t want them to have nightmares from this.” I put my forehead against the cool wall.

“We can have nightmares?” She asked, taking my lab coat off. Thankfully it hadn’t been stained with any blood, by some miracle.

“Yes. Anything a human mind can do, your mind can do. If I didn’t put in the
bad, then the psychological effects could be horrible.” It was actually a
little relaxing to talk about my work on them. It took my mind off of
the past two days’ events.


“Ah. But... can’t the bad stuff ruin a person’s mind as well?” She asked.

“It’s a very necessary risk. An god complex would be bad. You can feel pain,
have nightmares, and be afraid just like anyone else. You won’t age,
though.” I said. “You are, of course, able to pass some human norms,
such as processing speed, strength, and eyesight.”


“Oh. I guess that’s true. Do you want me to make you something to eat?” She smiled, tossing my coat onto the chair at the desk.

“You don’t have to.” I tried to influence a bit of independence into all of
the girls, simply because they had a respect for me as their creator
from the start and I didn’t want to take advantage of that.


She smiled and went off to my kitchen. “Too bad. I want to.” She called out behind her.

I shook my head a little, and left the room after her. Kelle noticed me
as I walked out. “Hey. Larethi. Is everything alright? Sarana looked a
bit out of it.”


“It’s what happened today.” I said, and told her what had happened as well.

When I finished, she looked disturbed. “Strange. I hope no one else gets
hurt.” She walked off, probably to check on Salisa and Thera.


I reached the kitchen, and found that Sarana had already finished. “You
really don’t have to cook for me...” I said, and sat down.


“Hush. I like cooking. And I made some for me too, so there!” she grinned, and
set a plate with a couple of grilled cheese sandwiches on it in front
of me. I started eat when she sat down across from me. “Feeling a little
better now?” She said after a few minutes.


I nodded. “Yes. Thank you, Sarana.”

“You have to eat, or you won’t be able to do anything.” She said, eating her own food.

“Yeah... Well... I’ll have to call and tell them what I got, or rather didn’t
get.” I said, getting up. I called the building, and a security guard
answered. He gave the phone to the man in charge and I explained that
there was nothing unusual about the blood that I could find. He cursed
under his breath.


“Take the rest of the day off. You’re the only one who has the resources for this, and we need you at your best.”

I thanked him, and hung up. “Well, they found nothing new. I guess I
should just rest for now.” I went ahead and set up a couple of extra
tests on the blood before I went to bed.\


November 3, 2050.

I woke to Sarana sleeping beside me again, this time with a shirt on. I
got up carefully as not to wake her. I dressed and went to check on the
tests. When I got to the scanning room, I found that one of the tests
had actually found something! I read the screen quickly, then slowly.
“Oh.” I said, under my breath.


What had been added was a simple poison. The formula, save for that, was
unchanged. Unfortunately, this particular poison was unseen in nature,
and had no cure. A man-made liquid death. “That’s bad...” Apparently,
the reaction between the two had triggered the... monstrous changes in
the three scientists. But even then, they should have died again...
Unless they were dead already. The poison plus the formula may have
changed each other more than expected... I spent the morning doing minor
tests, and found two possibilities.


One; The poison was stronger than the formula, but was slowly fading. That
was likely the cause of the two women being weaker and slower. Two; The
poisoned formula spread like a virus, and the virus was controlling the
bodies. The people
were dead,
their bodies were just being used. Creepy. But worse, I found one last
fact, and this one was for sure. The virus was beginning to breed, and
evolve at a rapid pace. Within hours, the three in the cages would
likely hit upon some useful change... and then... I had to warn the
people!


I called the man immediately, and was relieved to hear him respond. “Yes? You’ve got something?”

“Yes!”
I said, and explained what I’d found. “So you need to make sure those
cages are guarded at all times. Full body cover, as well!” I finished.


“Are you sure about this? It sounds a bit... Far fetched.” He said, and
caught himself. “What am I saying, this is all far fetched! I’ll get
those guards ready right away. Tell me if you find anything else.” He
hung up.


“Disaster averted! Thank goodness!” I wiped a little sweat off of my brow. I went
into the kitchen to fix something to eat, and found Sarana already
making something.


“I thought you’d be hungry.” she said, and set a plate on the table for me, grinning.

“But how did you know?” I asked, and sat down.

She also sat down, and started to eat. “I heard you on the phone, silly.”

She’d make eggs, and good eggs too! I ate quickly. “Oh. Of course!”

When we’d finished, Sarana followed me to the lab. “Thi? Can I ask you something?”

I nodded. “Yes? What’s wrong?”


“Nothing. I just want to help. It has to be hard, working alone.” She said, and looked a bit embarrassed.

“Oh. Of course you can help, Sarana!” I said, and smiled.

“Okay!” she helped me do tests until a few hours past noon.


“Hey, Sarana. Come look at this. I think it’s mutating again.” I waved her
over to look at a small sample. It appear to be twisting in every
direction, and was changing its basic shape as well.

“I agree... But how is it doing it?” She asked.

“I’m not sure. I think the structure is unstable. If it keeps changing, it’ll eventually find a more stable shape, right?”

Sarana nodded. “Yes, it would... But what happens to the... the victims?”

“The virus seems to be controlling them... What if they change as well?” I
handed her a small sample. “Could you run a couple of effect scans on
this sample? It’s undergoing a similar change right now.”

She took the sample, saying, “Got it.” About ten minutes later, I heard her
gasp. “It can change other substances!” I walked over quickly to see
the results.

“That’s bad. Very bad. It could mean they can change shape... Uh oh. Those
cages had bars!” I called again, and breathed another sigh of relief.
“You need to get them in completely walled rooms, or something. Now!
They may be able to change their shape!” I said, quickly.


“What?! Hey! You! Get the transport ready! Bring it to the cages!” The man
said, leaving the phone on. “What do you mean change shape?” He asked
me.


“As in, they virus can change their bodies! It appears to be random, so
far. But if it changed to something less boned, and more fluid-like,
they could get out.” I heard someone say something to the man.


“What?! Not there?! Search the area! Now! One of them has escaped! Well, it seems you were right. One of the women is missing!”

“Oh no...” I said, as he hung up. “One of them is already out.” I told Sarana.

She gasped, her expression one of horror. “Out? But... That means...”

“I know. We’ve got enough to continue our tests here, and enough food to
last for a couple years.” I hit a couple of buttons on the wall, and the
front door of my house locked and barred. “We can’t leave, else
something could get in.” I looked down. “If they don’t catch it, we
could all be doomed.”


Sarana put down the sample. “Come on, we need to take a break, and tell Thera and Salisa...” She said, taking off her gloves.

“I guess... They’re gonna be scared.” I replied, taking of my own gloves.
We walked through the sterilizing field and went to find them.
Fortunately, they were both inside. We got them and Kelle into the
kitchen. “Okay. We have something to tell you.” I said, and took a deep
breath. “We can’t leave the house, or even the underground portion of
the house. Go get your things, as quickly and quietly as you can. Thera,
Kelle, don’t let Salisa out of your sight. I’ll explain when everything
is down here.


It took them about an hour to move everything down into the lab. When
they were done, I locked and barred the door to the rest of the house.
“Now, this is going to be a bit of a shock to both of you, but we are
safe here, okay?” Thera and Salisa nodded. Sarana was explaining what
happened to Kelle. I explained the entire thing to them both, and
waited.


“B-b-b-but all those people!” Thera said, and started to cry. I reached out and
pulled her into my arms. “They’re all in danger!” Salisa just stared at
me blankly before reaching out and hugging Thera as well. We stayed like
that for a bit, and Thera stopped crying. She fell asleep, and I set
her in her bed.


“Poor girl.” I said, and left the room. Salisa stayed with her, and slept as well.

Kelle came to check on us, and Smiled sadly. “This is going to be bad, isn’t it?” She asked me.
“Yes. Especially if it’s not contained. All we can do is test the samples we
have here and hope for a miracle.” I said, and walked to the lab.


Kelle followed me. “I’d like to help.” Kelle isn’t the best researcher, she
prefers a bit more force than is practical, but she has a lot of
patience.


“Okay then. We’ll start tomorrow. I think today we should just rest and get used to being underground...” I said, and sighed.

“You should go see Sara. She’s not handling it all that well.” She said.

I trusted Kelle about this kind of thing. She always seems to know what
someone’s feeling. I nodded and went to look for Sarana. I found her in
my room, sitting on my bed. “Sarana? Are you alright?”


“Yes.” She said, but about a second later, “N-no.” I went in and sat down beside her.


“It’s going to be all right, okay?” I told her, and gave her a hug.

“But all those people... They’re going to be hurt! And and and,”

“Shh, calm down, calm down” I told her in my most soothing voice. “That’s a
girl. You can do this, Sarana. You need to set a good example for Thera
and Salisa.” I said.


Sarana looked at me. “That’s a low blow, you know.” She said, gently pushing me, the beginnings of a smile forming on her face.

“But it worked, didn’t it?” I said, and hugged her again. “We’ll do this, okay? We will succeed.”

She nodded. “Okay.”

“Why don’t you rest for now, okay?” she nodded again and laid down. “I’ll be back later.”

I left to my other lab, this one a rather small room full of circuitry
and wires. This was were I built their soul matrices. I started working
on my latest project. The fourth android. She was about two months
along, and I was getting better. I expected to be done in about a week,
considering the rate of progress.


After an hour, I set the matrix on the table. I went over to another table,
with a cloth sheet over it. I pulled it off to reveal the metal skeleton
of the android. It was time for the synthetic flesh to be added.
