Eeks...a pointless little one-shot. It sounded better in my head. :(

I watched the last ten available episodes of KHR on Youtube last weekend, and I gotta say, it's pretty good (but the manga is better! :D).

This is the first fanfic where I'm using the anime as reference...gulp...Wish me luck, ne?


Master, do robots have hearts?

--

Must...save...master...

Those were my thoughts as one of the Deathstalk Squad members advanced towards him, ready to crush bone and flesh under their muscular arms.

I drove up to the big, fat, mutated monster and clamped onto his leg. No way would I let my beloved master be hurt...not after all that he's done for me...

The ugly woman with the Afro shouted a command, and the monster leaned down to crush me and the master.

Activating teapot launcher. The master's favourite Japanese green tea soared into the monster's face. Ha, take that. Next: strawberry shortcake with vanilla icing. And after that, popcorn. Hmm...laptop, too?

I raised up my hands and blocked an attack, but I knew that I wouldn't hold for long. In a battle of power...I was sure to lose. I didn't have any fighting ability. But as long as I could protect master...

Video clips of the master and I played in my monitor, and I silently hoped that the master would get away. I could feel my joints breaking...

My feet sank into the floor, and electricity buzzed around me as I felt my system drive crumbling.

A few moments later, I used the last of my power to huddle in front of my master in an attempt to block an attack. I would never let anyone hurt him. Never.

Of course, Mini Moska. Of course robots have hearts. They're not like a human's...but you have one.
