My mech was finally complete.
I flipped the switch, and the battle-bot roared to life, gears whirring, circuitry humming beneath it’s armoured shell.
It took a step forward, then another, ready to do my bidding.
Then it collapsed to one side, legs pumping futilely in the air, unable to right itself. It’s engines started to smoke, then shut down entirely.
Shouldn’t have been surprised.
I’m an actor, and a decent one. I’m a comedian, or call myself one, but I’ve never claimed engineering expertise.
Well, back to the drawing board, they’ll have to fear me another day.
Practice makes perfect.
