The chrome robot sat itself next to the two Guy-Manuels. Sprawled out on the floor, he couldn't help but stare into their faces; the robotic mask and the humanoid. One was dark, enticing, and mysterious. The other was exquisite and striking, yet at the same time carried a tranquil look. Both were rare. Both were beautiful. But he had to forget the old robot being of Guy-Man, for he was obsolete. He was no more. Although heart wrenching, Thomas was intrigued with the human-looking one. He seemed so otherworldly. Not of this earth. Maybe of heaven? An angel, perhaps? It had been years since they had seen their human selves. The last time he ever looked into a mirror, a car mirror actually, was seconds before the accident. It was also the last time he ever saw Guy human.
Going into that room, it was odd seeing the creations that Guy had been working on. It seemed as if these models would take years to correctly reconstruct. Each was so intricate. Down to the last freckle, he'd have

Thomas marched through the stadium, the night covering him like a blanket. He had his Droid Razr on in one hand, trying to locate its twin. They both were required to have a GPS system installed into their phones in case anything like this were to happen. But he was coming up with no luck. No answers. Just blank. Guy, where are you? Thomas was worried. No; beyond worried. This wasn't like Guy-Manuel at all. And he should know, they've been best friends for years. Suddenly, a thought crossed his mind.
W-What if he was killed? Not that robots can be killed but they can be shut down. What if No! Stop it, Thomas! Don't think like that! He couldn't be! He can't be! Guy'll come back. But, what if he can't walk here? What if he's been beaten? Then the person would surly realize that he wasn't human! And the authorities can't be called! Not the ambulance, he's a robot. Not the police, they'd definitely have some questions. Nobody could help him. He'd be alone.

Darkness had crawled across the sky, the stars fading into view over the stadium that housed thousands of people who were waiting for the moment when the duo of Thomas and Guy-Manuel stepped out onto stage, their metal glimmering in the neon lights and their arms raised into the air, gesturing the beginning of a memorable concert. Mummers from the crowds of fans that were gathering in their seats grew louder with each passing moment. They could hardly wait. Although, if you were to ask Thomas, he might be thinking differently.
"Okay, so stage check number five is finished. We just need you to test the DJ booth and 'shine up' before we can start any pre-show events." The manager finished, walking alongside the robot Thomas, who was barely managing to put one foot in front of the other. C'mon, Thom. Pull yourself together. You shouldn't be so scared. You've done this before and everything worked out just fine. You've got this!
They arrived at the booth, switches glowing and t

Thousands of LEDs spanned across the distance of the football field. Men and woman alike rushed around the stage making sure everything was working and in its place. Switchboards were being manned behind the velvet curtains and tests were being ran. "One, two, three." One of the mechanics timed, making sure the lights were keeping pace with the beat. After the tests were complete and all of the LEDs were checked the stage manager heaved a sigh of relief. Finally it was finished. This had to be the most extravagant concert yet, and nothing could go wrong. Not a thing. "Alright everyone! We're done! Thank you!" The remaining workers cheered and gathered near the exit, leaving through the stage's back door. The only person left was the stage manager, who looked at his wrist watch with a content smile. They were making good time. Just then, a crack came from his radio that hung on his belt.
"Everything good to go, Jeff?"
"Yeah, we just finished on stage. We're doing well on tim
