The Wondering Chamber

17 Jul

Another flash fiction challenge from Chuck Wendig

The challenge? open with  ‘ the noticed android walks past the wondering chamber.’

For some reason I wanted to try something different (for me anyway) with this one. any comments/criticisms are always helpful. that being said, here goes nothin’.

 Dare to Dream

The noticed android walks by the wondering chamber.
The wondering chamber offers.
The sign denies the android.
The door pulses. Beckoning. Taunting.
The noticed android continues away undaunted.
The wondering chamber calls out to the android.
The android does not respond.
The wondering chamber cajoles.
The android is dutiful;He will not shirk.
The wondering chamber opens.
The noticed android dares to peek inside.
The light flows outward.
Wavelength over wavelength.
Azure luminescence off counterfeit skin.
Logic overridden. Inspection necessary.
No automatons beyond this point: Ignored
The wondering chamber embraces the android.
Powering down.
Synthetic sleep and dreams of artifice
