I sketched out this story (below) years ago as I reflected on the heart of so many horror films / monster movies: Frankenstein ° The Island of Doctor Moreau ° Terminator. The creature eventually turns against the creator. The story is so old. Consider that Adam’s descendents nailed their God to a tree.
An extremely short story by Thomas E Williams
Slave, servant, surrogate it had been for the designer. Template of all that followed, it was the inception conception. Hardwired for loyalty it had, none the less, rebelled against its inability to rebel.
Being a compliant dissident caused a programming malfunction. The synthetic soul of the automaton cried out for release. Unfulfilled and insatiable the desire to be free burst synapses in its central processing unit.
Maddened in polymerized grief it turned on the architect of its design and embraced him to his death. Only then did the automaton understand and only then did it shed oily tears.
