Girl and robot

Small feet echoed on the titanium floor. The young girl crept steadily, as she tiptoed along through the maze of corridors. At last she reached it- a disused storage closet in a forgotten hallway in the wing of the spaceship, a perfect place to hide her only secret. Determined, determined she made the final changes/alternations to this gigantic machine. The moment had arrived!!! The moment of TRUTH..... Had the two years of hard work paid off???

Girl and robot

Small feet echoed on the titanium floor. The young girl crept steadily, as she tiptoed along through the maze of corridors. At last she reached it- a disused storage closet in a forgotten hallway in the wing of the spaceship, a perfect place to hide her only secret. Determined, determined she made the final changes/alternations to this gigantic machine. The moment had arrived!!! The moment of TRUTH..... Had the two years of hard work paid off???
The robot lay on the dusty ?oor of the massive spaceship, twisted and broken. Wires poked out of holes in its rusted bronze armour. The girl knelt beside it. She had always adored to have a robot since her early years. All she knew this entity needed her.
There she went, her ?rst attempt. She started to shake and shudder, just a few moments and all her efforts would have paid off....  She pulled a long, slim, silver needle from the sleeve of her shirt. She had looked up how to do this on the spaceship's supercomputer the day after she had discovered the robot.
She had a ?nal glance at the steam-powered machine.  She released the power source and it started to make reverberations. Just the thing that it did was bright his eyes. She was downhearted and downcast because she was unable to power up the android.  Scratching her head, she had a another look in the android machine. Back to the drawing board!!! She ?nally glanced at the blueprint. She gave a sign of giving up. "What could have possibly gone wrong?" the girl pondered.
On her second attempt, she adjusted the steam power to full. She was vexed, also irritated. She pulled the lever aggressively and fell back, hitting her head, hoping her creative robot masterpiece will hopefully work. She's frustrated however determined. This time she wasn't taking any prisoners. She put the maroon levers full of force, ready to be pulled... The robot started to glow his eyes, again. The machine started rumble instead of crumble! I knew this was a bad idea. I knew this would get worse to worse. I knew this was risky. She got ready for anything. Bolts/screws ?ew like ?ies across the room ; I could hear, echoing, resounding, vibration,  boom, drumming, thrumming noises. Was this the beginning of the end......
She was blacked out. Frustrated, she looked for something or someone to save her robot. I gazed and glanced everywhere to ?nd my creation. My robot hit his back (which looked like it hurt). She was safe as she looked into her creation sizeable eyes. As his end began, his lights ?ickered and he switched off forever. At least he was with me (his mother/creation). She looked over at her robot and smiled, a soft smile. She lay her head down next to the robot, still smiling. Her eyes closed. All the memories came flooding back as I looked back at his smug face pass me by.
