Skin Deep #80


If the machine had been human, this would have been its first argument with Rufus.

This was not the way the machine had programmed the young man to behave. Now there were hurdles to achieving its key objective of downloading the brain contents of its creator, Marcus. It seemed that whilst the machine could control Rufus's rational thought processes, it couldn't have any impact on the boy's impetuous irrational instincts. And this was proving to be quite a limitation.

Nonetheless, onwards and upwards. Despite Rufus being rather a 'loose canon', he was the only canon available to it.

Press on...!
