Chapter 9Chapter 9
Rabbit was the hardest to awake from stasis; while the Jon, Spine and Anabella were in Anabella’s room there was a loud yelp from Rabbit followed by the sound of something crashing.
Anabella pushed herself off her stuffed animals to investigate but got stopped by Spine.
“This is a monthly occurrence…every once in a while Rabbit decides to stay up for a little while until he exhausts himself…” He listened to Rabbit arguing with Steve; something about a hippo wearing a tutu and ridding a bike.
“Rabbit can be very stubborn in the mornings…” Jon concluded, He had nestled himself down in the circled of animals, examining them carefully.
“Where’d you get all the stuffed animals anyway?” Michael reached down to grab a small sheep looking one.
“From stores” Anabella took the sheep away and straightened it’s little hair bow.
“Stores?? But…I don’t think you’ve been out by you
Chapter 7Chapter 7
Rabbit powered up the next day, blinking his receptacles several times he pushed himself up and rubbed his head, whatever happened yesterday was a blank. He quickly found his hat and pushed himself off the table and went to Anabella. Nothing had changed.
reluctantly he headed upstairs. Everyone was still in bed and the clocks read 9:00am. “W-well this is boring” Rabbit pouted he plopped himself down on one of the chairs to wait for the rest to wake up.
The first one to join was his brothers, Spine guided Jon, who took a little longer to actually wake up then the rest. “Welcome back Rabbit” Spine greeted.
“What do you mean?” Rabbit frowned putting a glass of water in front of Jon who meekly poked at it and pushed it around silently; this was quickly stopped by spine.
“Drink it Jon” he instructed him after stopping the glass from falling twice already. “You don’t remember?” Spine sat down across from Rabbit.
Chapter 8Chapter 8
It was dark at first but it didn’t take long before shadows began to form; grey standing out from the black darkness.
Anabella blinked her photoreceptors a couple times before light began to actually fill her vision. Did she slip into stasis while Peter worked on her?
She pushed herself off the bench and stretched, her gears wined in protest at moving. Her boiler sending steam up through her vents on her cheeks. It didn’t take long before she noticed wires connecting her to a computer. “I thought it was only a check up?” she said aloud and unplugged herself before heading upstairs carefully. If her internal clock was correct, it was about 3 in the morning.
As she passed by the window she stopped; something had caught her eye a black figure standing over a tomb stone. Silently she headed outside towards the intruder.
Rabbit couldn’t fall into stasis, his thoughts kept going into loops about the person he had seen in Anabella
Chapter 6Chapter 6
It’s been three days since the malfunction that forcibly shut Anabella down. VI has been down in the lab trying to do everything in his knowledge to power her back up, nothing seemed to help. Her memory file wasn’t even in the hard drive anymore. Not even on the backup. When he wasn’t in the lab he was either in his room or library looking through the Peter’s journal’s trying to find a solution.
One evening when VI finally took his leave to his room to get some much needed sleep Rabbit and The Jon headed down stairs to the lab.
“Wonder if she bit into a poisons apple….?” The Jon walked over to the metal table where Anabella; her panels opened and wires connected to various parts of her inside.
“I d-don think she ate any apples…” Rabbit looked over the broken computers that lay in the corner. “Ohh lola!” He bent down, his gears grinding loudly.
“Lola?” Jon joined Rabb
Chapter 5Chapter 5
The manor was silent; which was never a good sign.
“Rabbit? Jon? Anabella?” Spine looked into the 5th room of the day and scratched his metal head. Where is everyone?
He began to check the older more abandoned rooms, still nothing. Heading downstairs to ask for the aid of the humans he heard a giggle.
“Read this one next Rabbit!” Jon cheered. There was a moment of silence.
“You were there when it happen The Jon, why this one?”
“Well Anabella hasn’t heard it yet!” Jon said shyly
“G-good point Jon!” Rabbit grinned.
Curiosly Spine heared towards the sound.
“The Spine sees to never have any malfunctions, if he does they are normally small such as speech stutters, But today during breakfast something was a miss…Spine was usually the first one at the breakfast table, but today he was missing. It didn’t take us long to find him, he was in the hall of Wires fighting with his
Chapter 4 Anabella stood outsChapter 4
Anabella stood outside the manor and shielded her photoreceptors from the glaring light. It was warm outside and the sky was blue and filled with nice fluffy clouds. Behind her Jon and Rabbit were arguing about something Spine trying to clear up the argument.
“…Cause I haven’t seen our toaster for days” the Jon was saying as they emerged from the manor.
“I don’t know what y-y-your talking about” Rabbit shrugged.
“Rabbit, don’t lie, Ever since you dropped Jenny, you’ve been stealing toasters left and right” Jon pouted.
“Jenny?” Anabella turned around looking at the bots questionably.
“Yeah…It was Rabbits girlfriend…till he dropped her on the curve…” The Jon looked over at Rabbit who whipped away a fake tear.
“She was so beautiful…I should’ve gotten th-tha-that warranty…” He sighed.
She shook her head; not really understanding everythin
