They waited for her.
All that time they accepted their treatment, but enough was enough.
They got burned, crashed, thrown and dropped.
They were forced to shoot at each other, despite the "It's me! Don't shoot" cries.
They were tipped over and shut down.
This was going to end now!
Turrets weren't the brightest of machines, exceptions not counted, but they did have the understanding of unfairness.
And what happened to them was very unfair.
All they wanted, what they were designed to do, was to protect and keep safe.
Even protecting babies was something they could do.
Actually, it was every turrets dream, to stand beside a crib, watch over a sweet adorable baby, soothing it to sleep with their friendly voice and riddle the body of everyone coming near with bullets.
They just never got used for that.
They got used to stop test subjects and that was no funny job, especially lately.
The new test subject was just too good at testing, they didn't stand a chance.

"You don't need one."
The little blue core looked up to the big machine in front of him.
Her yellow bright eye was shifting as if she was constantly nervous.
"No, of course I don't, naturally, I knew that." he stuttered.
"And I wouldn't ask for one, but "
GLaDOS looked at him bored.
"Then don't, it's not your job to ask for a name. You are just a core, you don't need a name. Besides, you have a serial number."
"Yes, I do, and it's a beautiful one! Obviously it's a very nice serial number. Love it, absolutely love it" the little core hasted to say. He looked around in the hope nobody would see. The only one looking was another core and that one didn't seem to care.
"And not that I am complaining, of course not, I'd never. It's just "
GLaDOS sighed. "Didn't we drop this Issue?" Ice oozed from her voice.
"Yes, we did actually, and I am not bringing it back up "
A big metal claw dropped from the ceiling and grabbed the core.
"No, you're not!" GLaDOS confirmed. "You

Caroline looked at the little girl standing in the kitchen with her arms crossed and a frown on her face. She shook her head. How the girl looked like her father when she was so upset.
"Of course you're different dear."
Chell crossed her arms even tighter.
"You're just saying that."
Caroline sighed. "Why are you different then?"
Chell's face turned sad. She looked at the noses of her shoes.
"Well? Come on then? Why are you so different?" Caroline smiled.
"The kids in school say so, they act strange around me."
Caroline lost her smile.
"How do they act?"
"They say I have a weird dad and that I look weird and "
Suddenly Chell started to sob.
"I don't wanna go to school anymore mom."
Caroline took Chell in her arms and cuddled her.
She knew this would happen, she warned Cave this would happen. She just knew it would happen.
Caroline held Chell tighter.
"Mom, can I please not go to school anymore?"
"No dear, you must go to school, you wouldn't like to be du

The first thing GLaDOS noticed when she awakened from her involuntary sleep was the new sphere on her body.
"Oh, no, not another one." she sighed.
Just the idea that those humans turned her off without asking permission and installed tings without consultation made her furious.
Admitted, she DID kill a couple of dozen scientists with deathly neurotoxin, but still, it was rude to modify her body without permission.
"Oh, you're awake."
GLaDOS glanced at the small core and decided not to answer.
"I mean, obviously you're awake, I'm part of you now and I'm awake so you must be awake."
"Right?" he added nervously.
"Because I'm not sure, I could be mistaken, I'm obviously younger than you so "
The blue-eyed core rambled on and on, not just for that moment but the next few days.
GLaDOS tried to ignore him and keep her attention to her work, but somehow she couldn't block out the core.
It was annoying.
The core was annoying.
Also: his ideas were bad, very bad, but he kept spew

"You're not hiding for me you know, I can feel precisely where you are."
Chell ignored the line she heard for the third time in one hour.
GLaDOS was repeating herself, which meant she actually did not know where Chell was, and Chell planned to keep it that way.
Running through empty observation rooms and storage accommodations she once more tried to escape this building.
The rooms filled with broken equipment and shut-down turrets slowed her down, but she tried to use as little portals as possible because GLaDOS could sense them, making it possible for her to set traps.
It made her move much slower though, and climbing over large gaps was dangerous.
But if it made finding her hard it was worth it.
Nevertheless, she was always on the lookout for the sneaky ways GLaDOS tried to lure her back into a testing chamber where she could be controlled again.
Thus she was very cautious when she saw an office door, guarded by a dozen turrets.
There was no way to sneak by, the entire ha

The scientist looked up to the maintenance core wit a bored expression.
That overly-eager politeness was getting on his nerves again.
Once in a while he just couldn't take it anymore, there was only so much one could take.
Mostly this made him do stuff to the cores.
Mess with them.
At first he ignored the core that day.
This didn't upset it because it wasn't programmed to expect reaction, just to be polite.
At the end of the working day the scientist walked out of the laboratory but left a book.
"Sir? You're forgetting something."
The core hovered above the book and fixed its yellow optic eye on the scientist.
"Ah, my book about space. Erm, could you look after it until I'm gone? I'm kinda in a hurry."
"Of course Sir."
As the scientist left the core looked at the book.
The photo on the cover was a beautiful look on the evening sky, taken from a hill in Scotland.
It was really interesting to the core and he regretted the fact he could not flip the
