I can kill with my bare hands. Worse, I can inflict more pain with just a finger than they could imagine.
My chest tightens, and I quicken my steps to get away from the stares. Around a corner, I find myself alone with my Father’s face. The slogan, “The General loves you,” screams at me.
Father, if you loved me, you never would have deactivated me. I worked hard to fit in like a nice cog, obeying your commands as the good little soldier you wanted. But I could never please you.
Though as much as you hurt me, I still wish you could love me. I’d have devoted my heart and not just my body if you had given me one nod of approval.
I was two years old when you first sent me to your scientists. You put a chip in my brain to control my thoughts and filled my body with metal parts. Look what you’ve done to me—I’m not even human anymore.
You turned me into a killer.
Don’t tell me you love me.
I run past the sign, dashing away the tears with the back of my hand. Now is not the time to cry.
