Peaceful Departure

Resting in foliage shadows, I am contemplating the day I have had and what I could do of my remaining hours. I went hiking with my brother – we climbed up to lake Critol. I called my sister and my best friend. I had a great laugh with both of them.

Today is the last day of my life. I was programmed to be decommissioned now on the day I was born. We all are to some extend – Humans or Machines. Though I doubt it would feel the same not to know when your lease on life expires.

In the end, I opted to just lie down there, in the grass, enjoying the piercing rays of sun warming up my stainless steel cells. I figured that was the best way to go. Lying there basking in delight, without a care in the world.


This is a except of a longer short story I will publish soon on Mug’s Tale. I will share it along with another passage in tomorrows’s post.

  7. The picture makes this doubly effective, I wasnt expecting a machine.
    You threw me off the scent with the bit about calling the friend and sister, and then there is a further hint of the machine being entirely human, choosing an ideal place to die. Cool short.

    1. Thank you for reading and giving me your valued feedback on this one – this paragraph is just an appetiser 🙂
      I am glad I managed to surprise you.

      I imagine that in a society of robots – modelled after and programmed by humans in the first place – machines could feel that bond with other machines – being created on the same day, working and evolving together for years.
      Yes, my robot has a beautiful soul – I could not create it any other way ❤

      1. Although some time in the future, I dont doubt robots and humans will coexist. In a way we do already, the computers just cant walk.
        Cheers for the breakdown.
