Ch 1 Dance or die

"what do you do?" anthony asked me. I was charging in the wall and I wasnt fully finished.

"I-I dont know what you mean." I stated.

"Are you just another robot,Cyborg, android, d-boy, decoy, water, wisdom, tightrope, vision, insight, stronghold, heartless, ice cold, mystery, mastery, solar, battery?" he asked.

"No, one thing I have that other androids dont have, I have a S-soul. and C-cyber soul. my creater allowed me to learn and grow like a human. my sisters u-un fortunatly did not survive the process." I said with sinserity.

"ah, well then what have you learned like a human." he asked with a smile.

"I beleive in many things, even though I am not a human, I believe that there is a higher being, and I also believe that danceing is the only thing I can do to stay alive."

"I believe in both those things as well."

"But some will pull the gun because they want to be stars
Snatching up your life into the blink of an eye."
 I started to sing with him about how life is in metropolis, the dictator, the war, and the rebelion.

He was nodding and took me up to dance. I had to pull my cord out of the plug and I continued, my battery showed on the screen as low, so I knew my speech would be faulty.

"And if you see your cloning on a street walking by,
keep a running for your life cause only one will survive
war is in the street and it's an eye for an eye
run on for your life or you can dance you can die"
 I continued to sing.

he swayed me to the music I was singing, being that I am an android my throat can do more than speak. I can also play instruments and add more then one voice. my music flowed through the room as we danced on the kitchen floor.

 "She's praying in the sand like she's the last samurai
It's a stick up stick up and a pick up pick up
Telling lies and telling lies will put your face on fire."
my voice studderd because my battery was complaining in my head.

"Run and tell your friends to never dream, never win
Ghettos keep a crying out to streets full of zombies
Kids are killing kids and then the kids join the army
Rising and a waking, yes sir here comes the sun
March into the war and with the kick of the drum ."
anthony added his voice with mine and sang as a back up.

"The wiser simians have got the bombs and the guns
So you might as well keep dancing if you're not gonna run."

he took my hand and spun me around and i did a salsa strut and back into his arms.

"A long long way to find the one
We'll keep on dancing till she comes
These dreams are forever
Oh these dreams are forever
And if you wanna wake the sun
Just keep on marching to the drums."

after this line I turned on my echo voice.

"These dreams are forever
Oh these dreams are forever"

we did a slow salsa and shook our hips to the beat of my music.

I belted

"Now I'm not saying it's better to bailar;You can pull the trigger or you can build you an ark.
My words are rather kind you keep them held in contempt
Looking for a nine and then a droid you can tempt
Zombie, zombie, zombie, where do dreams come from?"

He took my hand tighter and we fox trotted on the plastic tyle light on our feet. he lead me across the floor gracfully. then he slowed us down to just a beat dance, and he turned me around and held me tightly.

"A little bird is chirping and she's singing a song
She's shaking em and waking em and giving em mas
As the clock tick tocks and the bodies drop"

He spun me around quickly and bent me down in his arms.

"I'm gonna lay myself so far way down right in your chops
Modern day example of the wolf vs flock"

I threw my hands in the air and spun around swiftly and softly.

"Freedom necessary and it's by any means
Frozen they were stolen all the kings and queens
Sudanese and Congolese who put the roll in the rock
From here to Sudan, Metropolis to Iraw
It's a minute to the dawn and yet the sun ain't back
It's still a war in all the stress and yes freaks will dance or die "

Anthony looked at me and did a smooth tap. I turned my echo on again and sang the chior.

"A long long way to find the one
We'll keep on dancing till she comes
These dreams are forever
Oh these dreams are forever
And if you wanna wake the sun
Just keep on marching to the drums
These dreams are forever
Oh these dreams are forever "

he gave me a sweet look and watched me dance and sang to me with the softest deep voice in the world.

"Angel, blossom, gunshot, dodging, dream, bright, beat, light, breathe, live, help, give, focus, trance, wake up, dance!"  He touched my face and looked at me in a way i have never experienced befor. i placed my hand on his chest. fear stikes my cyber heart, i know what they do to androids that fall in love with humans. I continue to sing.

"I'm praying for the man sitting without much time
May he understand the clock will never rewind."
I hint at him.

"Wisen him and sharpen him and give him a motto," I paused for a second and looked at anthony. fighting back the love that yurned for him.

"hate no more, said he must hate no more
You see the daylight comes into the kingdom
But the kingdom's full of ignorant men."
he swayed me to my music and i knew what he was thinking. his blood preasure has risen and his heart is pounding out of his chest. I distract him with my song.

"Just keep rebelling away, you gotta dream it away
Because the weatherman on TV ain't creating the weather,"

I stop and point out the window to the men walking by on the street.

"This man wants to see another jubilation
And that man wants us in emancipation
And then there is the man who wants a stronger nation
You see we really got to and I think that we ought to
Protect the mind from degradation
Sow in the seeds of education
They run from us, are we that dangerous?
There's a war in all the streets and yes the freaks must dance or die!"

th music in my throat continued to flow through the kitchen as we slowed our dance to a stop.

I walked away from Anthony leaving him confused and wanting more. I plug myself in and start to dream and watch my battery become full of life.

The End
