The lone robot
As the rusty robot hovered through the woods, the golden sun shone in the aqua sky. The trees created magnificent shadows. Crimson leaves danced around the trees and fell onto the evergreen grass. In the distance, he could see flashing lights coming from a large object. What could it be? As he breathed, the air was full of the fresh scent of lavender, but then was covered by the smell of gas. The large object appeared to be a flying car.
He was very intrigued by this mysterious object, suddenly an odd looking figure came out of the car (a human) and politely asked the robot, “Do you want to come to my house?” The robot hadn’t any idea but nodded. As he entered the flying car he watched the sunset vibrantly shine; it faded leaving a bright trail of clouds.
The car was full of different sized and different coloured buttons, it was awe-inspiring, he couldn’t believe his eyes. Finally, the engineer had arrived at his house, the robot cautiously walked into his garden looking out for any danger.
A day had passed, the kind engineer had made a little bed for the robot to sleep in, and it appeared to be very comfortable because he was fast asleep. Rob-the engineer-went to work, the suddenly thought of an amazing idea. He felt sorry for the robot because he was lonely and had no friends and family. It was now 3:42 pm in the afternoon, Rob had decided to invent a girl robot, so he started to examine the key parts of the little figure whilst he was sleeping. After a long re-energising nap, Robbie the robot had woken up in Rob’s attic-where he was experimenting.
After a week of planning, the only thing Rob had to do was use his automatic x-ray machine to see what was inside the robot. “Robbie!” Rob yelled, he waited for him to climb the ladder, it took him a few minutes. Eventually, the robot had sat down, but then saw the machine and felt frightened. For a split second, Rob looked at the chair to see if Robbie was there, but he had disappeared.
The robot had returned back to the woods, he had missed; the colours; the birds singing gracefully; the emerald grass and the shining sun. Luckily, Rob’s estimate was right and he had also gone to the woods to find Robbie. After a long conversation, Robbie was finally ready, Rob had told him it will only take a few minutes, so after some persuading and thinking, he had faced his fear and lived happily with a girl robot named Tia. Rob had also figured out how to make a dog robot, because of this, he invented on and gave it to Robbie and Tia to be a part of their family.
Robbie and Tia had decided that they wanted to go to another planet, so Rob made them some mini space suits and a rocket. After they had packed everything that they needed, Robbie Tia and their dog blasted off and had landed on a peculiar planet named Zong. Amazingly, they had met similar robots like them. Robbie now knew he was not the only one.
THE LONE ROBOT
As the rusty robot was slowly ambling through the bright, colourful woods, the golden glistening sun was happily smiling at him. He gazed at the crimson red flowers bloom: he saw the leaves dancing passed him. Safe and sound, the robot heard the voice of joyful birds singing their songs. The leaves were crunching beneath his tiny feet; the sound was comforting. In the distance (passed the towering trees) he saw a strange, dull, grey plumes of smoke, something didn’t feel right. He couldn’t go, he wouldn’t go, but he should. Shouldn’t he?
Different thoughts circled round his robot brain, he just didn’t have the guts to go. The light breeze was making the trees sway, whilst the bright orange leaves were making their way down. He didn’t know if he belonged here, or if he was meant to be somewhere else, but he did know something. Something didn’t feel right.
He started wandering through: jade green trees; the pink peony flowers; and the soft green grass. Who knows where he would end up? Finally he had arrived, the loud noises made him put his tiny hands over his ears. Leaping with great fear, he jumped on the train and huddled in the corner, and slowly shut his eyes.
As time went, the rusty robot-who had now woken up-looked around. Bang, went the train, he had arrived to a place, he thought he belonged to. Cars and vehicles came past, when suddenly the large train, which had his symbol on left a trail of smoke behind. His heart sank. This wasn’t the place of happiness, he ripped the symbol off, which was on him, and threw it to the ground.
Looking through a scattered world map he found something, he saw a place called Italy, this place was meant to make him happy. Before going to Italy he saw a dock near the factory and he quickly jumped onto the ferry to go to Italy. He had finally arrived, it was beautiful. Although he ate; pleasing pizza, brilliant baguettes, al dente pasta, and mouth-watering lasagne, he didn’t feel happiness or joy. There were lovely places to visit, such as the Colosseum, but he just didn’t feel right.
Next stop was Paris, Paris was awe-inspiring, the robot saw the most amazing thing ever, it was the Eiffel Tower, which was waiting to be explored. Amazingly, he got to see the top of it, eat delicious foods, explore and discover everything. But again happiness wasn’t felt by the robot.
After these three trips the robot had given up, it was useless! Until he remembered he saw a picture of space, the rusty robot had no idea what this strange place was, but he knew he had to get there. Determined and restless, he used his imagination to invent a cool rocket (he called it the aero-rocket).Amazingly, the rocket was run on glitter. 5, 4,3,2,1 take off! The most creative rocket was now going up and up, and he felt the joy coming, he knew it.
As he slowly exited the aero-rocket, he mumbled “Hello anybody here.” Out of nowhere he heard a crowd of robots partying and re-energizing to dance again. ”Hi my name is Bongy and this is Bongo,Bongi,Bingy anyway there are lots of us here and we love to make new friends, so I can’t tell you anyone else otherwise we will be here forever. So this is RObot Town. What are you doing and are you new?”
“Me I’m just trying to find happiness and I am alone,” answered the robot. There was a long silence and they ran away bringing cake, streamers, presents and more cake. “Let’s have a party!” screeched one of them.
The rusty robot found happiness, and he never wanted to leave again. This was the place, he gave them all a hug (which took 3 hours because there were a ton of them) and smiled.
