Previously on the Robot Saga: Danny was an uneducated child robot purchased by an unloving family. The family neglected Danny and taught him nothing, instead placing him in front of a blaring television to keep him occupied. He learned from the tv and in his lonely little tv room he plotted out his revenge against the family that put him there.
And now the thrilling conclusion to the Robot Saga.
Danny went to a local gun shop and purchased himself a hand gun. He would stand in front of the mirror for hours holding the gun in a menacing fashion imagining the moment of his sweet revenge.
How sweet it would be he thought. He had it all planned out. On Friday November 13th the family would be throwing a birthday party for the son. The party was to be held in the backyard and the parents had rented one of those inflatable bounce-o-rama things. Once the children and their friends were all playing on the bounce-o-rama, Danny would make his move.
Friday came quickly. The bounce-o-rama was being inflated in the back while Danny anxiously paced back in forth in front of the television. Soon he thought, soon they will know my pain. Once the bounce-o-rama was fully inflated, the kids began to filter outside. Danny couldn’t wait any longer and ran outside in a fit of rage.

Despite popular belief, robots do grow and they do have feelings, at least this particular robot does. His name is Danny, and this is his story.
As a young robot, Danny was very clumsy and uneducated. He would spend hours standing around in front of a blaring television doing absolutely nothing just so he wouldn’t fall on his face. This was due to the fact that when Danny was purchased, he was practically a clean slate. He had no knowledge of anything so he didn’t know how to do anything else. His owners were a family of seemingly joyful, yet inconsiderate humans. It was their responsibility to interact with Danny and teach him life skills, but they neglected him and just set him in front of the blaring television to keep him occupied.
They originally purchased Danny as a play thing for their children, but since Danny wasn’t educated enough to provide any immediate entertainment, the children quickly lost interest. The children and their many friends would gleefully play in the yard where Danny could see them through the window of his bleak little room. Little did they know, but this hurt Danny’s feelings greatly. While the children played outside, Danny stood inside learning from what he watched on the television. He learned that he shouldn’t be afraid to fail, because that is how he would learn. He learned that solving problems with violence was a common practice in society. He learned about revenge.
At that, Danny decided to learn how to walk. He started out by walking around in circles in the living room and then moved on to the furniture, and eventually in to the other rooms of the house. He was delighted at his new ability, but kept it a secret from the family, for it was vital to his plan. By this time, Danny was a teenager and his body had significantly changed. He decided that he felt confident enough in himself to venture outside, and while the family was away he would take trips into the city. He saw the sights, and the sounds and the people, and he fell in love with it all.
After he felt he had experienced all there was to experience in the city, he decided to carry through with his original plan. First things first. Get a gun.
Will Danny carry through with his plan? Will he get his revenge? Find out next time on the thrilling conclusion of the Robot Saga.
