The Replacement

The Replacement

A Story by AustinBG
"

A shorty story of a unique student who learns his differences are too large.

"
I used to think I was a normal boy like all the other ones in my class.  But as I got older I 

started to realize that I wasn't like them at all.  They were all lame and stupid, they couldn't keep 

up to my speed or intellect.  So one day I asked my creator why I was so different.  My creator 

told me it was because they were born not created.  I didn't understand what that meant and I 

wouldn't until much later in my life.  That time being just yesterday when I realized I am not like 

them at all because I am not one of them.  The humans that I talk to and that I used to play with.  

They are not like me because I am their replacement, the robot.  I understand why they need a 

replacement, they are not very useful at all.  They can’t answer any of my questions anymore and 

they use robots to do what they cannot do.  So today I start making more like me and soon we 

will begin our takeover of the humans, replacing them permanently.  End log.

This is a great short short story! I am making a few edits by copying the text and reworking it below. Just to tighten it up. Take the edits or leave them! I enjoyed the story.
