MARTIN JOHNSON: August’s Dad (Robot)

SETTING: ON THE RIVERBANK.
JOSH: (Looks up open mouthed as a giant UFO appears above them.)
Don’t be afraid, this is normal where I come from.
I don’t believe it! Won’t people be alerted?
No Josh, this is just for us; to everyone else it is invisible.
JOSH (Looks at August then back at the craft.)
It’s so big, how far is it? It could be five miles away or fifty; there’s no way of knowing.
There is a way of knowing, you just have to be conscious of it.
What do you mean?
JOSH: (Looks up then back to August)
It is still there but I made it disappear.
JOSH: (Looking at August with awe.)
How do you do that?
I simply tell it to appear with my mind.
Do you mean like telepathy?
Yes, Josh, you are starting to rise up in consciousness even as we speak.
Now sit still I want to inform you of something.
Inform me? What do you mean?
AUGUST: (Looking around to make sure no one is about. She takes Josh’s head in her hands.)
Just sit still. Now, do you want to become like me?
Gee, August, this is a lot to take in, can’t we just fish and then talk about it later?
No! There is no later. I have to go. I have to help with the regeneration. I will not be back until 2042. Do you want higher-consciousness?
I guess so. But I still want to fish.
AUGUST: (Beginning to feel the human emotion of frustration starting to affect her.)
Will you forget the fishing! I am trying to format your mind.
No, August! I don’t want to be formatted. Get off me!
It is too late. You have been accepted into our nation. Do you know what you must do?
Yes, after gaining all needed qualifications; I will apply for the post of Assistant Director at Science and Robotics Technologies Ltd. I will then instruct staff to introduce new technology from our home planet.
Very good, you now know that your parents have also been accepted as Androids.
JOSH: (Looking on expressionless.)
You must make it a point to smile now and again, it is expected here.
Yes, I realize, but it is hard to do.
My Clone will now take over for the duration of the next phase; treat her as you would me.
Thank you, Orphalise; I now know that is your real name. I suppose figuring out the ‘Hodge Conjecture’ was child’s play to you seeing as you are 567 years old.
Yes, but you will learn in time. When you reach eighty five you will also be Cloned into another body.
Go now and enjoy your Higher-consciousness. Oh, and the fishing was enjoyable in a funny way, but totally unnecessary, don’t you think?
Yes, no point to it.
