the life and adventures of mr sloto

The Technological Miracle

Mr. Sloto roamed the street as dawn approached. He was trying to remember where he lived in Cherry Town, but the city had a different feel now that it was painted gold everywhere. He felt dazed in the golden light reflected from every corner.

He stopped at a TV store to hear the late-night news on replay. The city mayor was going to clean the city in the coming days and rebuild a stronger and more beautiful Cherry Town.

At the break of dawn he saw a figure he recognized. It was his dear wife, Mrs. Sloto. She had the look of desperation in her face and Mr. Sloto could sense a deep sadness in her. 

“Have you lost something?” asked Mr. Sloto.

The eyes in Mrs. Sloto’s face shone like two jewels absorbing sunlight.

“I’m back sweetheart; I got away from an evil inventor. He took me from the junkyard and is responsible for all this gold paint everywhere.”

Mrs. Sloto came quickly to embrace Mr. Sloto. She was so happy she couldn’t stop sobbing. Mr. Sloto tried to console her but she wouldn’t stop.

“What’s the matter?” inquired Mr. Sloto. Mrs. Sloto then pointed to her torso and said:

“Something is growing in me. I couldn’t live with the idea of being without you, so I did something radical. I went to Victor Fluke and asked if I could bear a little Mr. Sloto. He used the latest robo-genetics to install in me a fetus robot that will grow inside me. It has half your code and half mine.”

Mr. Sloto could not believe his ears… were they going to have a baby?!
