Breaking Point

He tried to move but nothing happened. “Harder!” he screamed, “And be quick about it!”

Fighting the urge to scream back I turned the handle to the crank again with as much vigour as my tired muscles could muster. The engine did little more than mumble a tired cough and splutter.

I looked up at my robot master and smiled, “Sorry boss, looks like you’re knackered.”
