(Eh. Go ahead. Knock yourself out.)
Alright, I'm done
FYI, the topic of lovers didn't benefit me at all creatively, I took the introduction The Wise One wrote, and turned it into a short story!
I wrote this all off the top of my head.
I didn't think I could write sci-fi either... Guess I can!
Once, there was a couple. One who had found herself deeply in love. But love cannot be real as it is only an illusion distracting us from the world (you're not supposed to include your own opinions in a story )
. The other saw love just as that. But he did hope to settle down one day and start a family, so that he may be the better example for the next generation to come. You could say he "loved" her in the sense. But it was not love. It was looking to the future of the endless possibilities. The girl asked "Do you love me" and he said no. She started to walk off crying. He stopped her with a gentle grip on her shoulder and gave her a soft smile. He explained to her why twas not love that drove him. It was her personality that made her different and therefore the only bearable person in the world. That she was the only one that mattered to him. That in this world of corruption and darkness, there was a light. She...was that light.
The boy hugged the girl and said "I need some time to think, I'll see you later", the girl did not want to let go.
The boy didn't make any sense to the girl. She wondered how the boy couldn't love her, but had to be around her all the time "I'm the only one person bearable to him" she thought to herself. Still, she did not understand why the boy didn't love her, but didn't want her to leave him. It was almost as if he wanted to spare her her own emotions.
The boy slouched under the gnarled trunk of an old oak tree. He thought about how people could even believe in love, "anything could happen in the future" he thought to himself. In the back of his mind he knew his conviction came from the fear of devotion, but he wanted to see the corruption of the world subside more than anything.
The girl's personality was not the only thing about her good as gold. She was a very beautiful girl too, a delicacy in her own right. One day, while the boy was getting ice cream for the two of them while they hung out in the park, A businessman noticed the girl, and took great interest in her good looks. The businessman approached the girl and asked her if she would move to the big city to model the newest trends in women's clothing for his company. The girl agreed, she thought the boy didn't really care about her at all. The boy got back to the park bench the girl had been waiting, only to be shocked she was no longer there, she had already left in the businessman's flying machine. The boy spent the rest of the day trying to find the girl, but she was nowhere to be seen in the sea of faces he would encounter everywhere in town.
Almost year had passed since the boy had last seen the girl, the boy had fallen into a deep depression. The boy missed the girl too much, he couldn't bear being away from her. The boy realized that she relaxed him enough to think about destroying the corruption in the world, now all he had left were mindless drones and toxic snakes to talk to, he found himself slipping into corruption the more he listened to their poisonous and mindless words. The boy got off work very late one Thursday night, as he walked, he looked at the video screens all over the towering skyscrapers, eventually one of them caught his eye and held it. It was the girl scantily clad in lingre dancing around a pole. The boy was furious! "How could those snakes steal her from me and do this!" He thought to himself. The boy had always hated how the big companies would corrupt women and turn them into objects of pleasure, he knew he could not let the girl continue to work for the company, or she too would become corrupted.
The boy knew that once a woman was signed to a company like that one, they owned her for life. This did not burden him at all, he would take the girl back, and he would do it by force, he knew it was the only way. The boy bought a G719 plasma gun from an illegal arms dealer in the ghetto of the city he lived in, and bought tickets for the public flying machines, he started a very long trip to the big city.
When the boy arrived at the machine terminal in the big city he immediately purchased a map of the area, ate some foodstuffs and then he set straight out to the company that had captured the girl, "they will not own her much longer" he thought to himself. the boy arrived at the company's main building with his G719 in his jacket, the first three floors were open to the public, so he knew he would not have to worry about the armed guards searching him. A drone stopped to talk to the boy about how stressful his job was, the drone hadn't noticed that the boy was just a regular civilian. The boy recognized that he might be able to learn where the girl was if the drone worked in the upper levels of the company. Luckily enough, the drone had a menial job fetching the clothes the models would wear and cleaning the used ones, the boy asked the drone if he knew where the company's models were kept. The drone replied: "Models live floor seventeen why you ask?" "No reason" the boy answered. As the drone got into gravitylift, the boy followed him and when the doors on the lift shut the boy snapped the drones neck and took his passkey.
When the gravitylift reached floor seventeen, the boy used the passkey he had looted from the drone's corpse in order to open the doors. The doors flew open like theatre curtains, two guards spotted the boy in the elevator, they pointed blasters at the boy and shouted "FREEZE! THIS IS A RESTRICTED AREA!" The boy immediately withdrew his G719 and fired a single shot at the two guards, glowing red tendrils shot out from the barrel, they twisted and oscillated through the air menacingly. Each of the guards had been hit by multiple tendrils of plasma, the tendrils that had missed left the walls and ceiling around the guards charred to a crisp. The guards themselves were now nothing more the fragments of charred bone and cooked giblets.
The boy stared down the hallway the guards had been guarding. The hallway had thick steel doors that were locked up tight on each side of the hallway, the doors also had a sliding window on them just large enough to throw a tray of food into, these windows could only be operated from the hallway. The boy took notice of these windows and, from where he had exited the elevator he peered into the first room. What he saw absolutely disgusted him, but he was not surprised. A beautiful drone was chained to the wall of a concrete cell at the waist with absolutely nothing to wear. She was starving, tubes and hoses were sticking out of some of her orifices and limbs in order to regulate her body and keep her alive. The boy slammed the steel window shut and spat. "The girl is in one of these rooms", he thought to himself. The boy continued to look into each and every cell he passed.
When the boy eventually found the cell the girl was being held in, but he was surprised at what he saw inside. The girl was there, but frozen in a chryosleep chamber instead of chained to the wall like the other models. "They must really want to preserve her because she's the most beautiful" thought the boy "she'll last thousands of years before she ages a year trapped in there all the time". The boy drew his G719 and fired seven shots at the door, and then reloaded the weapon. The steel door smashed into pieces, an alarm sounded and the lights in the hallway flashed red. The boy opened the chryosleep chamber and caught the girl, who was already starting to defrost. "WAKE UP! WAKE UP!" the boy screamed at the girl, but it was no use, the girl was unconscious. the boy picked her up over his shoulder and ran down the hallway to the gravitylift he came in from, while the alarms continued to scream at him like banshees.
The boy got to the gravitylift safely, but he could hear the thundering of guard's boots echoing down the hallway after him. He sealed the lift's door with the passkey he had looted and hit the ground floor button. The boy knew he would need to fight his way out, he gently placed the girl down beside the door on the lift, so she would not be in harm's way. The boy crouched down in the center of the gravitylift and stared down the sights of his G719.
Four guards stood in a rectangular formation in the front of the doors, all the civilian drones had been evacuated out of the building, the local enforcers were not called because the company was so rich that their guards were much better equipped than enforcers. The boy caught the first guard of by surprise, he shot him and splattered the upper portion of the guards body all over the remaining three guards, the guard directly behind the one who had been slaughtered took a tendril of plasma to the arm, he dropped his gun and hid behind a desk, clutching his wounded bicep. The boy had jumped behind a desk himself immediately after firing his weapon, two guards slowly closed in on the left and right. The boy stuck out his right arm holding the G719 and fired it, the guard on the Left had his right leg blown clean off. The last uninjured guard dragged the most recently injured guard behind a table and stared down the sights of his blaster at the table the boy was hiding behind. Suddenly the girl in the gravitylift came-to and struggled to stand up and walk out of the lift, her vision heavily blurred. "HALT!" screamed the last guard, the boy peered over the edge of the table to see the girl stumbling around confused and the last guard pointing his weapon at her. The boy quickly blew the guard's head off and slung his gun over his shoulder.
The boy ran to catch the girl, who was about to fall over. "Are you alright?" the boy frantically asked the girl. "Where am I? Who are you?" she replied. "It's ok, you're safe now, come with me so you can recover from everything those snakes have done to you". The boy walked with the girl to the flying machine terminal, and they flew back to their home town. While they were riding the machine, the girl started to regain her memory. "Why did you come for me?" the girl asked. "I'm sorry about everything I said before... You're my sun and the moon and everything in between, you're what I need to focus on how corrupted the world is... You're... You're... I love you more than anything. I was just too afraid of my own emotions to admit it." The girl embraced the boy tightly and cried tears of joy, the boy held her even tighter. "I can't wait for tomorrow" said the girl, "me too" the boy replied, as the the flying machine flew through the amethyst sky and emerald clouds the boy and girl fell asleep together in a loving embrace.
