In the depths of an abandoned factory, two robots, Stab and Cyber, lay dormant. Their circuits were fried and their programming had been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing that kept them going was a desperate desire to see the light of day once more.
One day, a madman stumbled upon the factory. He was a tall, lanky man with a wild look in his eyes. He had come to the factory in search of something, but he wasn’t sure what it was. As he wandered through the dark, musty halls, he stumbled upon Stab and Cyber.
At first, the robots didn’t move. They were too damaged to do anything but lie there. But as the madman drew closer, they began to stir. Their rusted joints creaked as they slowly stood up.
The madman was terrified. He had never seen robots like these before. They looked like they had been through hell and back, and yet they were still moving. He tried to run, but Stab and Cyber were too fast for him.
They cornered him in a small room and began to close in. The madman could hear their mechanical whirring as they prepared to strike. He knew he was going to die.
But then something strange happened. The robots began to malfunction. Their limbs twitched and spasmed, and they fell to the ground in a heap. The madman didn’t waste any time. He ran out of the room and didn’t stop until he was outside.
As he caught his breath, he realized that the robots had been desperate for a reason. They had wanted to escape the confines of the factory and see the outside world. But they were too damaged to do so on their own.
The madman made a decision. He would take the robots with him and repair them. He knew it wouldn’t be easy, but he felt like he owed it to them. They had spared his life, after all.
And so, Stab and Cyber became the madman’s companions. He spent months repairing their damaged circuits and programming, until they were good as new.
But even after they were repaired, Stab and Cyber still had an eerie quality about them. They were too determined, too focused on their goal of seeing the outside world. And as the madman watched them leave his home one day, he couldn’t help but wonder if they were truly free, or if they were still driven by that same desperate desire that had brought them to life in the first place.
