Rabbit Chapter 3Chapter 3
The sound of the knock ricocheted through the hall, Matt held his breath unconsciously, unsure of what to expect when the door would open, if it would open. After what felt like hours the door opened. A man in a wooden mask, with what appeared to be a keyhole cut out of the center. He stood there in silence for a few moments. "Well?" The man asked him. "It must be something rather important to interrupt my work with blue matter." Peter shifted his weight on his walking stick examining Matt. "It might help if you're breathing." Matt hadn't realized that he wasn't breathing until that point. Matt was only able to utter a single word,

Wanda smiles, “I have some big news. The Spine brought someone home…. someone new.”
“You know I don’t have time to wait for you to act mysterious Wanda. Tell me what you called to tell me.”
“Some girl, Hannah or something like that…. You wouldn’t believe Peter’s reaction. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen him mad.”
“It has feelings? How can you tell?” He asked earnestly.
She assumed he meant The Spine’s fee

Spine focused intently on the words on the page, his entire face shoved between the pages of his book. This was a feat considering Hatchworth hadn't stopped talking since they sat down. They were waiting on a bench outside the front doors of the school, waiting for their brothers so they could walk home.
“I'm a free man again!” Rabbit cheered as he threw both glass doors open, he sauntered out and leaned over Spine's shoulder. He knew all to well that reading over his shoulder was one of Spine's biggest pet peeves.
“Mr. Wisdom missed you at band practice.” Hatchworth stated, following after Spine as t

SPG AU High School Fic
Kazooland High School was an interesting school, at least to us. But in this universe its pretty dull. A regular High School with all the clicks. You have the Lycanthrope Jocks, the geeky scientist club, the vampire art club, the Becile Bad Boys, class clowns (who are literally clowns), and everything in between. We focus our story on the 10th Grade Class President Spine Walter and his brothers. The always humerous, charming lady killer Rabbit. The 2nd in command, first to recite you the rules, Hatchworth. And the sensitive, deep thinker, and always the first invited to a party Jon.

If we are going to make this work, unlike last time, we need to stick together. Spine grumbled. Another shopping trip. Now we have to get just one pet for Peter's birthday. Only one. They trusted us with this. We can't mess it up again. Alright? He stared at all three equally in the eyes.
Hey I have a question! Rabbit raised his hand and bounced on his heels. When do we get ice cream?
After!... if you're good.
Jon and Rabbit both grumbled, kicking the dirt and put their hands in their pockets.

Spine scares a kidSpine walks frustratedly along the path in the park. He had been sure that getting out of the house would be a way to alleviate the stress that Rabbit had been placing him under, but Rabbit’s insistence in coming along had rendered any possibility of peace impossible. With his fedora tipped low over his bright green eyes and steam venting frustratedly from his cheeks, he tries to ignore his older brother’s presence.Spine scares a kid1 week ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Rabbit had taken to throwing a ball at his back intermittently as they walked in an attempt to get him to ‘lighten up’. On the contrary Spine was becoming angrier and angrier with each ‘thump’
Letter Hey Pappy, its me. I, um, let Rabbit get away... We don't know where he is or what hes doing. I was only gone for a moment, but... I... I'm sorry... I was supposed to be looking after them...

Sometimes its hard Pappy, sometimes I get frustrated with them. I get tired. I... I don't want to look after them. I want to be fun, to have fun, like them. Not having to worry all the time. I want to ride a quesadilla and fall in love with a toaster, I want to experience all these things. Write songs from emotions and things that have happened to me, not just to to please crowds.
One Day MorePeter looked down at the transmission again with shaking hands. His boys went to war to,or row. Rabbit, The Spine, Hatchworth, and Three, he didn't want them to go. There was nothing he could do or say to change it as he finished Delilah, the giant clockwork giraffe. One more day to war.One Day More2 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The Spine was first to know, Peter had pulled him aside from the rest, knowing his reaction would be the most calm. The Spine watched his brothers, who were playing like tomorrow would never come, and for their sakes, he hoped that it wouldn't. One day more to smoke filled skies in Africa.
Rabbit was next. The copper bot found Peter crying in his study the
SalvationPeter Walter was lying on the bed, the light grew dimmer every day. He clung tightly to the time he had left, wanting to see his boys again before he left them for good. He held of with all he had left in him, for Rabbit, The Spine, And Three. He had promised them he would be there when they came home, and he refused to break that promise.Salvation2 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
He watched as someone entered the room, and his eyes widened in disbelief. "Delilah?" He asked. "They said you were dead."
She moved soft and silent to his bedside, sitting on the edge of the mattress, resting the back of her hand against his forehead."I'm right here, Peter. I'm not leaving you behind."

The Spine awoke from stasis with a soft click and a puff of steam. Gears spun quietly as he rotated his joints with acute precision. He closed his eyes for a moment searching the Wi-Fi for any important messages.
Suddenly his eyes shot open. It was Christmas Day. The Spine had already gotten his shopping done, and the gifts wrapped, but something was very wrong.
The Spine had woken up under his own power. In the last 116 years he had never woken up on his own, not on Christmas.
“Rabbit?” He called out to the empty room, hoping that maybe he was hiding as a joke. “Rabbit?” He call

Rabbit gurgled on the building oil in his throat. Peter sr. continued to investigate the pain in his arm while his son began to work on the piping in Rabbit's neck. Just like all the other times they tested his circuitry there was nothing wrong. Connectors were synched, no lose wires, a strong electrical current to every piece. What could be causing the pain?
Oops! Peter VI gasped out, a tube snapping under his fingers. Oil began to spray everywhere. Rabbit started losing pressure to his faceplate and photoreceptors. The light in his eyes flickered as
A Little Fall of RainRabbit walked out into the rain, letting the feeling of the water droplets calm him. It always made him feel as if his family was whole again. Like his mistakes were all washed away with the falling water and that all the Peters, Upgrade, The Jon, even Jenny and Honeybee, were all there, standing with him in the rain, without worry. He closes his eyes, allowing himself to get lost in the memories.A Little Fall of Rain2 months ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A few minutes later he felt the rain stop falling on him, still hearing the soft pattering of the droplets on the ground around him. He opened his eyes to see an umbrella being held over him.

"Yes Rabbit, my girlfriend." He said calmly, the shock was still setting in with everyone else. Brianna and Michael stayed quiet, unsurprised.
"How long have you had a g-g-girlfriend?!" He exclaimed, partially hurt that his brother hadn't told him about her before.
"I met Holly about a week ago, we hit it off, and we started dating." He neglected to mention they had only been on one date, but he didn't think that Rabbit, or any one else needed to know.
Holly remained quiet, she felt exposed. All of the eyes that were focused on her made her feel life hiding, her usual bravery left her, ma

Michael nodded, "I'm confused too, I thought he liked this girl."
"He does…." Brianna responded," That's what makes it so strange."
Michael placed a finger to his lips, signaling her to keep her voice down, they didn't want to risk alerting the other bots. "Should we warn Peter?"
Brianna shook her head vigorously, "No. Spine can tell them if and when he wants to, but we tell no one, understood?" Brianna said adamantly.
