"Remember that time you accidentally spilled the professor's formula and it burned a hole through the table?" 1 chuckled.
11 placed a hand on his forehead and laughed. "Oh yes. I was such a klutz."
"We were young. What did we know? Speaking of which, whatever happened to 10?"
The smile melted off 11's face. "He died."
"Oh, I'm terribly sorry. What happened?"
"He was just a prototype. He didn't stand a chance in the war. But you have to admit, he was a silly idealist. He always had the silliest fantasies about a peaceful world."
1 chuckled. "Oh yes. Sounds just like our 9."
They both let out a sigh at the same time and leaned back. They were silent for a few seconds.
"It feels so good to laugh again," said 1 "I haven't felt this good since before all the humans were wiped out."
"That was a terrible day for all of us," 11 shook his head.
"So many lives pointlessly taken away," 1 cring

Everyone stood petrified. All that was heard was the sound of the river below. The rain had let up, but dark clouds still engulfed the skies.
13 fell to her knees, the ground below her splashed from the soft mud.
"No," she sobbed. She buried her hands in her face and hunched over. 10 came over to comfort her, stoking her back. "They're gone. They're gone," she sobbed. 10 held her against his chest and stroked her head.
A noise was heard from the canyon.
"It's as though I can still here her," 13 said.
The same noise was heard again.
"I can hear her, too," said 10, looking around.
The noise was joined by another noise and grew louder.
"Heeeey!" the noise said. "We're down here!"
7 leaned over the canyon and laughed aloud.
Everyone else made their way to the canyon to peer over the edge. Hanging from the edge was 17, who held her spear with one hand and 6 in the other. At the last moment, 17 jabbed the spear into the side of the canyon before 11 lost his grip and plummeted down into the r

A small burlap creature sat on a matchbook and stared at the wasteland before him, the number 9 inscribed in ink on his back. He sat with his legs spread apart and his hands hung from his inner thighs. Rain clouds were clearing from the sky. He sighed as he watched them drift away.
"Watching the rain again?" a female voice spoke.
The burlap rag doll turned around and saw another creature similar to himself. She lifted up the beak of the bird skull she wore as a helmet, exposing her face.
"Oh, 7. How long were you there?"
"Not very," she sat down next to him. "What were you thinking of just now?"
"Same as always. Where do we go from here, what happens now, all that."
"Like you said, this world is ours now."
"I'm just feeling a bit " he held out his wooden and copper hands, as though reaching for the words, "incapable, I guess." He dropped his hands and looked at 7. "Can we really begin a new world with just the nine of us?"
7 opened her mouth to say something when a scream pierced

They heard quiet talking inside the barn. They pressed up their hearing receptors against the wall to hear it.
"Guys, is that you?" 17 whispered.
From inside the barn, 9 answered.
"Yeah, it's us. Is that you, 17? Is 6 with you?" he asked.
"What's going on in there?"
"11 came back, but he's gone mad!" said 1. "He's wearing some sort of suit with many legs. If he finds you, he'll capture you with us. We're trapped in this stall and we can't get out."
17 looked at 6, and then she leaned her spear against the barn wall and felt around boards.
"Hold on, I'm going to get you out of here."
When she found the loose board, she lifted it up and poked her head in.
"Quickly, this way."
She got out of the way to allow everyone through.
"I always wondered how you could sneak off without me noticing," said 13 when she exited the barn.
All of a sudden, 6 screamed. Every

"What on earth were you doing out in the middle of the night?" she said.
10's face grew dark and serious, "16 told me 17 was in danger out in the field. When I finally saw her, she said 16 told her I was in danger."
"Maybe 16 saw the beast coming and just got confused?" she suggested.
10's brows lowered with his voice, "I think she meant to kill us."
13 leaned back, "don't be ridiculous! 16's not like that."
"Don't you see?" he stood up. "This was all planned. Why else would 16 send us out there? Why didn't she call 12? He's the strongest."
"Now you're just being paranoid," 13 replied with a bit of anger in her voice. "What reason would 11 have to kill you?"
"Because I suspected his plan. 6 and 17 see it too, that's why we were the only ones out there."
13 shook her head, "You used to be so loyal to out platoon. Now, I'm not so sure."
Without another word, 13 walked away.
10 reached and called to her,

"Kill us? Why would he want to kill us?" 13 demanded.
"You know too much already," 14 said as she tried to push. "You must run. Now!"
A low growling drifted through the house. They all turned and looked into the furthest recesses of the hallway. In the darkness, two red lights shined through. The lights came closer. A figure appeared against the dark light and towered over them, easily three times larger than any of them. There, a creature made of burlap stood. His stitched torso and arms dwarfed his small waist and legs. His long arms dragged along the ground. For teeth, rows of razor blades stuck out every which way, making it impossible to close his mouth. He wore a belt with a buckle with the number 18 engraved.
"Run! Get out, now!" 14 shoved her brethren out the door.
They ran screaming out the front door. The beast ran after them. 15 managed to dodge, but 14 found herself being slapped by the beast's claws and was thrown against the wall.
15 helped up his companion and they watch
