Tin Man Drabble: Now What?



Cain found him in the brain room, hours after the suns had come out from behind the moon.

Using the tattered sleeve of his uniform jacket, Glitch was idly wiping fingerprints from the glass case holding Ambrose. He turned at the echoing sound of footsteps and gave Cain a sad smile. "I spent so long dreaming of this day, when I would find myself again. I never stopped to consider what I would do when I actually found me."

Standing next to Glitch, Cain stared warily into the bubbling green aquarium containing an essential part of the man he was with. It was one thing to know Glitch's brain had been forcibly removed, to have even witnessed the event through the memories of the man himself. But to be faced with the reality of it was almost nauseating. Cain simply couldn't think of anything to say that was as wise or profound as this moment required.

So, he went with the first thing that came to mind. "It'll make a really nice paperweight."

And thus Glitch turned and slapped him. Then he laughed.

Just like I am.

Hee! I was THIS close to ending it with "And then Glitch punched him." But decided instead to let the readers fill in the rest. Which you did admirably. :D
