Chelsea with her companions started to walk away hurriedly past Melissa and her group while talking. They matched down the walkway that led to the administration block of the school while a group of girls led by Melissa were following them with much vigour. "Execuse Miss. Chelsea," Melissa unashamedly shouted at the top of her voice to Chelsea who was far ahead from them. "Don't you have some manners!" Ali scorned her harshly but in a low tone so as his father would not take note of what was happening between them. Melissa matched past Ali as if he didn't matter to her anymore and went straight forward to the place Chelsea had stopped after she had called on her. "Please will you give us a conpany towards the parade grounds," Melissa requested in a shy manner. "Sure! What do you have for me!" Chelsea replied while following her behind as she had already started towards her intended place. Melissa just turned and looked at her friends who smiled at her in a manner suggesting that
At one of the street corners, Karen stood worriedly and looked the way they had come from, they had hid themselves from the enraged crowd after the people had failed to listen to them, they had killed their street chief in cold blood and went ahead trying to capture them so that they hand them over to their president who had put some sanctions on their street making them live like abandoned and isolated people. Chester stood behind Karen wondering what kind of situation he had found himself in. The city with people of their own abilities when it came to dealing with technology. When he looked at their front, he could see them carrying clubs which radiated electric shock. They had been attacked at first by the man who had boomed their car, his eyes had turned red like a crimson when he emerged from where he had vanished from, as he approached them, he could smell something fishy but he wasn't sure, when he reached at the spot where they were having a dialog with the chief, he tried to
Chelsea accompanied by Mr. Narayan, used an elevator to the topmost floor where they had landed the previous night. On reaching the helicopter they boarded and buckled their seat belts ready for departure but were startled by Ali's voice who called them from a distance. He hurried towards the craft which it's roaring engine produced a sound that threatened to injure his eardrums which made him to cover them using his index fingers. "Is it possible for me to accompany you please," he requested at the top of his voice from outside the craft which had it's glass doors already locked from inside, "you can as well leave me at school because I have an evening lecture.""Sure!" Chelsea responded while unlocking one of the doors to let him in. 'Miss. Chelsea, Ali's intention wasn't to be ferried to school because he has an evening class but he wanted his mates to see him with you at the college,' the robot which was in the cockpit laid bare what was on Ali's mind which made him feel ashame
The old Volkswagen parked near an electric pole and with no hestation they alighted and headed to where they saw a heap of ashes puffing black smoke upwards. They stood mesmerized by what they saw at the scene. Karen bent down with her head spinning, she looked at Chester who was busy inspecting a heap of ash as if he was searching for something. JQ Street which had been the most lively and lovely street in Gordon city looked like an old abandoned horrific town. They looked all round the street in trace even for a figure of a human being but saw non except a cracked glass window and a young girl who was looking at them from the storey building which had faded maybe due to effect of the chemical that had been used while attacking them by Mr. Gordon. "I think they must have been looking for something!" Marvin said as she stepped near where Chester was. "But what exactly...I don't think so, they just wanted as killed, that was all for them," Karen opposed her idea. "I think Marvin i
"Is this how your dad carrys on his daily business?!" Chelsea asked Ali who still looked terrified from what had what had happened. "Ye...s Miss. Chelsea," Ali responded in starmer as he walked behind her. "Why do you look so frightened by what happened!" "I just wish that my father doesn't come to know what happened or he may end up blaming his few workers," Ali notified her as he led the way, "he doesn't value the humans anymore, he terms them as an inferior race compared to his machines and says they are always too demanding. Most of the time when incidences like what happened when they occur, he always blames them for not being carefull when handling his company. 'Welcome Mr. Ali,' computerised feminine voice sounded as they stepped infront of a glass door and it immediately opened. They walked in and saw Mr. Narayan busy on his laptop as if scanning through to have some knowledge of what had happened, they watched him wear a grin on his face an indication that he didn'
He saw the whole mass looked up on Karen, one man stepped out from the crowd and went where Marvin's body had been placed. He inspected it using his digitalized glasses which seemed to scan her as she lay on the bed and went back to her seat without saying any word concerning her health. "Have you come with that machine to reveal our hideout to that despicable creature!" One of the men yelled angrily while pointing at Chester then he reached for his gun ready to shot at him. "No my people!" Karen cooled him down, "he is one of us. He is not one of them, you don't have to get alarmed by his presence in our midst.""You are a lie, have they corrupted you to lie against us," the man persisted angrily, "you can't lie to us, with no dispute. He resembles that wicked woman who came and took over our island making us squaters in our own ancestral land.""Yes, he is related to her but that doesn't mean that he supports her in everything she does, he was almost killed when he opposed her bef
In the whole street, only the old shop had it's lights still shining, this is because it had a different source of energy from all other buildings which had their source from the mysterious lab. "There they are, what will we do?! They have come to slay us mercilessly! Those machines are ruthless," Karen spoke while looking at Chester as if expecting to hear a suggestion from him. "I think we have to escape" Chester suggested in a worried manner, "or we will not survive this wicked man.""They are patroling the whole street where will we escape to without us being notified..." Karen cuted short her words when she saw subject #79 reaching for the door, but they saw it emit purple fumes accompanied by acids which when it landed on the robots that were nearby, most of them started to melt away and in afew seconds most of them lay on the ground lifeless in a molten state. "Their is an underground escape tunnel near that exit," Marvin the robot lady notified them while pointing at
"That's good of you, is he around.""Yes madam, but it is just maybe he is taking a nap in his office after a tiring the whole day.""If he is sleeping who is it then that is heading the operations in this midnight, don't you think it's somehow dangerous to leave everything in the hands of this machines," Chelsea spoke to him as if not satisfied by what she had just been notified. "Well, right now I do the managing, I am in charge that's why I came to welcome you, please feel welcomed and free," Ali welcomed her once more while opening up a door to his father's office using his voice. "Please can I talk to your dad if possible," Chelsea requested immediately she sat on a comfortable couch. "Don't you think I can do what you want him to do for you!" Ali asked in dissatisfied manner after realizing that Chelsea was not respecting him that much as he had expected, he pressed a green button on his table and immediately a robot stepped in. 'At your service Mr. Ali,' the robot spoke imm
They were all drawn to attention by what was happening on the scene, the whole shop was flashing in many colours and 'Marvin the robot lady' herself had been multiplied into around twenty images on their screen which caused even themselves to get confused, the whole shop was in a misty state which hindered clear visibility and it is like all her entrances and exists had been automatically locked so that no one could enter or leave the shop, then the whole visinity had turned into a red colour indicating danger sign on the walls that led to the shops and almost the whole street. "That machine is more complicated than I ever thought!" Mr. Gordon said while looking at Miss. Chelsea who was also in big surprise after seeing what was happening around the shop, "is that part of her defence mechanism.""It must be Mr. President," Miss. Chelsea confirmed to him while checking on her system as if searching for certain details, "there she is."Miss. Chelsea informed him while pointing at the g
