The corpse lay in a pool of blood. Two gashes ran along the whole of its left forearm, following the path of the ulnar and radial arteries.
The robot stood above, looking upon it with morbid curiosity. Two long cuts, each one twenty two centimetres long, had taken precious little time to remove the body’s life force.
How did the loss of this red liquid stop a heart beating? Did the electrical currents exit the body with it?
The robot, named George for his curious nature, picked up the body and placed it on the operating table.
He had promised his master he would revive him before he killed him.
