    Let's see how creative we can be. Let's write a story one sentence at a time per post to see what direction it takes us.

    The topic can go anywhere, but please let's keep it clean : )

    I will start it:

    The day started out like any other.

      When the postman asked me to sign for the dummy I fumbled inside my jacket for a pen and to my astonishment the shop dummy held out a pen to me.

        I jumped back, amazed, and looked more closely at what I had taken to be a dummy.

    dropped down and gave the android ten because I believed that it was really my drill sergeant from the army.

  7. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    The android quickly pocketed the ten, looking at me in complete disbelief, scratched himself and with a metallic voice said ;"you cool , dude"

  8. DreamerMeg profile image84
    DreamerMegposted 4 years ago

    The android said, "I am here for review. What do you need me to do?"

  9. Ethan Green profile image90

    I led the android into the living room and told it to go ahead and start the review without me while I made myself a nice cup of tea.

    It began to move rather slowly and its speech slurred, sadly I could see its power was quickly leaving and I  knew I needed to plug it into some sort of power source.

    Once plugged in, it finally followed my instructions and made its way to the living room, only to snag on the charger lead, which just wasn't long enough to reach from the garage

    It was then I knew I had to make a rash decision or forever find this android shut down with in the confines of my living room so I picked up his massive metal body, placing  him in my car, as I knew I had to get to Best Buy before it closed, becasue they know everything about high tech things such as this.

  13. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    I hastily packed some spare underwear into a bag, knowing that the nearest 'Best Buy' must be a very, very long drive from London.

      It was then my lucked changed, as a cargo ship came my way and threw me a line, towing me to Stanton Island.

  16. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    As I waved goodbye to the good captain and his crew, the android and I were rudely wrestled to the ground by several burly US immigration officers

  17. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    I was greatefuI for the perfect timing and as I had never been to Stanton Island before,  I was looking forward to this new experience in life.

    1. Ethan Green profile image90
      Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      This innocent notion didn't wash on the immigration officers though, as they demanded to see our passports and visas

      The excitement of being on Stanton Island quickly left as I tried to explain my situation to the immigration officers, who only giggled and made fun of my me and tin man.

  18. Novel Treasure profile image86
    Novel Treasureposted 4 years ago

    just as I feared the worst, the android was able to secretly print the documentation from inside it's processor and hand the paperwork to the immigration officers, with skeptical looks we were allowed to go

      This android was smarter than I thought  and had been playing possum this whole time, surely a ploy to get to America!

    We were going to need money, I realised, as I wondered what else my new friend could print...

  20. austinhealy profile image83

    As I took a quick look at the android, I noticed that his steel body was starting to rust in places and I got worried, as I was growing fond of the stupid thing.

    1. profile image0
      Sunnie Dayposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      I felt a bond with this slowly rusting, somewhat handsome android, realizing he was able to do more than I ever could imagine so I looked at him, asking one important question, "Can you make US currency?"

  21. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    It took a whole minute or so for the processor inside him to come up with an answer, but after coughing out a couple of badly rusted nuts and bolts he said : "Yes, but hurry, I'm not feeling so great, make sure there is enough paper in my printer, it will contol the amount you can get out of me, so don't be shy!".

      Sunnie Dayposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      "Paper?" I cried aloud, "Where am I too get paper in a foreign city unless?"

      Sunnie Dayposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Thinking to myself,  this may all  go down the toilet soon if I do not find a public restroom, "come android...with a little luck and some slight adjustments, I may can make a roll fit to your printer!"

  23. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    Just as we were about to set off I suddenly remembered that all we had come to the US for was to find help with getting the Android's power supply fixed, but he seems to have been doing pretty well with no real explanation as to why...

          Attempting to find the androids printer, I noticed he did not need a power source at all, he was running just fine on batteries, sadly, selfish ambitions had to be put to rest, as making money would surely run his batteries down.

  24. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    Suddenly the android started yelling :"Come on, you morons, you're sticking the wrong size batteries in me, don't they teach you anything on this planet of yours?"

    i thought we were writing erotica??

    1. Novel Treasure profile image86
      Novel Treasureposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Just to be clear, the intent for this forum thread was not to write erotica. It was to be a fun and light-hearted writing exercise to bring hubbers together.

      I'm not sure HubPages stance on the erotica writing genre, but I do not want to be flagged for adult content, so please keep that in mind as we write this story.

      On that note, let's keep the fun going. Thanks!

  26. austinhealy profile image83

    The android repeated slowly :"E-ro-ti-ca", then a red lit message appeared on his chest :" unknown word, please program into built-in vocabulary "

  29. Novel Treasure profile image86
    Novel Treasureposted 4 years ago

    Now that we knew the android's power supply was based on batteries, we decided to find the nearest Radio Shack and stock up.

    there goes my post about whip cream and robot lovin'

    sad

  31. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    But the android was troubled with the picture that had been handed to him, he couldn't think of nothing else but the fine shape and curves of the female android he just saw : "Forget about Radio Shack, I will regenerate myself or get that beautiful friend here to power me from her own supply".

  32. Novel Treasure profile image86
    Novel Treasureposted 4 years ago

    Since the android continues to display inappropriate thoughts and behaviors, I decided to take him to the scrap yard and reduce him to a 1 cubic foot square of scrap metal, only receiving $20 for my troubles.

    Suddenly, I couldn't believe the android wasn't around anymore, and I was thinking of any possible way to bring him back, I mean, I was getting to really like the guy, despite our differences

  35. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    but hey, this was the first time I'd ever had $20 and I intended to enjoy it...

  36. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    So, I looked on Ebay and found a second hand android, looking just like the one I got destroyed, for 19.95 and free shipping

  37. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    fast forward 3 days and once again I found myself gazing into his freshly charged dreamy quartz eyes

  38. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    I was still financially ahead of the game by .05 and had my android back, the sky was the limit again and I was certainly going to take advantage of that.

  39. Ethan Green profile image90
    Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago

    In this crazy dystopian future where $19.95 could buy you a multi-purpose military android, 5 cents should easily buy me something to rejuvenate this floundering storyline..

        spartucusjonesposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        Also maybe a subtext, maybe I could be a luchador from parts unknown and my android can be my tag team partner and we could fight for the downtrodden and the oppressed.

        1. Ethan Green profile image90
          Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago in reply to this

          fighting your way through some minor leagues to reach the grand finale where you somehow became much better in a seemingly impossibly small amount of time with the help of a down-trodden alcoholic former champion luchador...

  40. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    So, I purchased for that amount a piece of gum for the android, as his breath could easily be confused with the one of an overflowing toilet bowl, and suddenly, I was broke again so it was time for my man made friend here to hit his own creative button and make me some serious dough..

  41. DreamerMeg profile image84
    DreamerMegposted 4 years ago

    so we sneaked around the back of a restaurant kitchen, and nicked some flour yeast and warm water and started making our bread.

  42. austinhealy profile image83
    austinhealyposted 4 years ago

    And there we had it : an exclusive new idea for a business, so we started manufacturing android shaped pastries and breads

      Sunnie Dayposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      It was not long before the android was showing much deterioration from the flour and water, I knew we must find a new way of making a living with my metal friend, perhaps it was time to go home.

    Backwater Sageposted 4 years ago

    After the big win, Luchador insisted that everyone stop by his place for gin and tonics, and with his head hung low, sheepishly asked who could stop by the store to buy a bottle on the way.

    1. Ethan Green profile image90
      Ethan Greenposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      The Brits declined, as it was past their bed time, but assured the luchador that the Americans would surely be finishing work soon and someone would be bound to pass a shop on their way home...

  44. spartucusjones profile image90
    spartucusjonesposted 4 years ago

    but the very thought of waiting for the Americans concerned the luchador because he subconsciously could sense the presence of David Bowie reminding him that he should be afraid of Americans.

  45. Backwater Sage profile image60
    Backwater Sageposted 4 years ago

    As the strains of "Change" ran through his mind,  Luchador reminded himself that it was only "Young Americans" that he was warned of, but he was sick of waiting for the old  Americans anyway, so he headed to a better spot to panhandle up some change for a bottle of Mad Dog.

    We got the Mad Dog, but before I could take a swig, the luchador snatched the bottle from my hand and chugged the whole thing.  Then he looked at me with a crazed look in his eye, leapt to his feet and began to sing....

        He started dancing a little jig, whipped out a harmonica, threw his hat down and started busking the crowd with raunchy blues songs  until he got enough for another bottle of MD 20/20

      He pried the harmonica from the dead man's hand, and sauntered off down the road playing blistering licks and singing, " I'm a man . . . M A N, man . . . a hoochie-coochie man . . . a rusty metal man!"

    Then from out of nowhere came a huge Black cloud, with a smiley face. It had a cool green looking thing that it dropped from 30,000 feet from high up above the sky, and as it fell so rapidly to the ground it struck! "I am the new Adroid that been dropped from the heaven!"
