Slithering behind, Old Nick’s slimy swish is accelerating, and louder and oh so confident.

Shouted

I shouted at her that I wasn’t a robot, that I had feelings and hopes and dreams and so what if I was falling in love!
She pressed a button on a remote, a panel opened in my chest and at least one thing I had just yelled wasn’t true.
