CHAPTER 10: ROBOT'S DECISION
Poleneux middle school was really quiet that morning. Robot noticed this as he walked through the front doors and went to his locker. He didn't sleep too well that night as he was constantly thinking wether or not the decision he finally made was the correct one. Scantron is so sweet to him but he also knew Shannon longer. He wondered what they were both thinking at the moment. He didn't have to think about that for too long as he looked up and saw them both standing in front of him. He also noticed his three friends and Pam and her friends behind them. Pam and the others excluding Shannon were staring down Scantron. She looked so scared and helpless now. When she first appeared, she showed no sign of caring when people stared down at her, but now she looked shy and nervous. Robot gulped. He hoped he made the right choice.
"...... WELL?!" Everyone looked at Pam. She looked back aggitated, "are you gonna say something 'it' or are you just gonna stand there?" Shannon and Scantron looked at Pam a bit angerly, then back at Robot.
"Robot?" Robot looked at Scantron, "it's... ok if you.. don't like me back.." Robot looked down at the ground That just made him feel even guiltier.
"Scantron..." said Robot, "I really like you but... I still like Shannon," Scantron looked down at the floor. She really REALLY wanted to respect and accept Robot's decision but... She felt she couldn't just give him up.. Scantron turned to Shannon, ready to attack her, only for Shannon to turn around to face Pam.
"He's not an it!" yelled Shannon, "he's a robot boy! A digital dork yes but he isn't just some thing like you always try to make him sound like!" Pam looked at Shannon, shocked that she was yelling at her like this. She was expecting Robot to choose the other robot so all this dumb nonsense will stop but he chose Shannon and now she's suddenly lashing at her for always being mean to him.
"Shannon you don't really LIKE that thing do you?" asked Pam.
"He's my friend!" Shannon answered while grabbing Robot's claw hand. Scantron watched in awe at her. She always believed Shannon and the other humans were just using him, but now here she was, accepting him as her friend. Scantron took Robot's other hand and glared at Pam.
"She's right," said Scantron, "you shouldn't judge someone by who they are, he's a boy and i'm a girl. Just because we're robots doesn't mean we don't have genders and can't feel anything. Robots and humans both feel the same emotions" Scantron smiled. She understood now. Not all humans are bad and the same goes for robots too, she learned that when she thought about what she had been doing all this time. Both humans and robots are capable of having genders, feeling things and actions. She once believed all humans were bad, but she was wrong. Pam looked at them furiously, especially when Socks, Mitch, Cubey, and even all the girls joined Robot's side. Pam angerly walked off down the hall.
"I'm sorry again Scantron," said Robot, looking a bit sad. Scantron smiled at him and hugged him. All she cared about now was his happiness.
"It's ok Robot," said Scantron, "I still love you though." Robot smiled back, glad to know Scantron was ok.
"What is going on here?" Everyone turned to see principal Madman looking mad, "the school bell has rung and none of you are in your class! GET THERE NOW!" Everyone rolled their eyes and headed there. Robot, Scantron, and Shannon smiled at each other and headed to their class.
DATA LOG ENTRY: FOR THE PAST COUPLE DAYS I LEARNED THAT LOVE IS A REALLY POWERFUL FEELING. THOUGH SOME PEOPLE COULD LOVE SOMEONE A BIT TO THE POINT WHERE THEY COULD END UP HARMING OTHERS, BUT GIVEN THE RIGHT GUIDANCE, THEY COULD LEARN TO ACCEPT IF THEY HAVE FEELINGS FOR THE SAME ONE.
FINAL ANALYSIS: TRY TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS.
