Zack was running down the street, his heart panting. His two friends Holly and Max were not far behind him. Nor was the policeman. They turned a corner as more policeman came running after them. Zack suddenly tripped over. "Fuck!" He yelled as he quickly picked himself up. The trio kept on running.
 
Earlier that day
The plane had landed with a thump as the tires barely grazed Manchester airport. "We thank you for flying British airways. It is currently 7:17am December 2nd. The weather looks fine with hardly a cloud in sight and it is 7 degrees outside. We hope you had a pleasant flight with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon" the captain said. Zack Wells looked out his left window and smiled. He was home.
 
Zack Wells was wearing a thin black jacket over his grey t-shirt. He wore loosely fitted denim jeans and had black shoes which matched his jet black hair. His blue eyes reflected the sky as he brought his attention back to the plane. Zack grabbed his bag and since he had no check in luggage, got through immigration fairly quickly and was out of the airport earlier than he thought.
 
The cold air smothered him as he left the airport. Zack was already freezing. He wasn't used to winter in England. Zack whipped out his phone and dialled his best friend Max Cane. "I'm ere Max. Just outside terminal 1". Said Zack. He hand a strong Scottish accent despite only visiting there once. "About bloody time you bugger. I'll come pick you up" spat Max. 
 
Max Cane had a Scottish accent stronger than Zack. He had black hair and wore a brown jacket with brown trousers. Max had brown eyes and a small beard. It took him ten minutes to arrive. "Hey Zack come here you bastard!" Grinned Max, arms outstretched. "It's good to see you Max" smiled Zack. They embraced. "It's good to see you too old friend" laughed Max. 
 
They walked together in the freezing cold to Maxes small, black Nissan. They entered the car and drove to Stockport. "How long has it been since I last saw ya?" Asked Max. "When did we last finish high school?"
"1996 I think"
"Oh fuck off really?"
"Really"
"It's been that long? Bloody hell"
"That's what? 20 years or so?"
"Yeah 20 years"
"Anyway it's nice to see you again old pal" said Max. The car screeched to a halt at the traffic lights. "So is Holly still around?" Asked Zack.
"Course she is. I'm taking you to see her now"
"Did you two get a place together?"
"Oh don't be so thick course we haven't"
"Right ok"
"Do you wanna do the thing we did in 1996 again?"
"Not really. See I've got a job now"
"Don't be such a nob. Holly still does it. Beside you haven't flown all the way from Africa to be a miserable git have you?"
"I actually came from Hong Kong but no I haven't come to be miserable"
"That's excellent. Oh shit here we are". Max turned it at the house. It was a standard brick house with a slanted roof and a white door. Max eagerly showed Zack inside. It was an eyesore. 
 
The brown carpet was stained with steam rising from it, the coat rack was broken and had lost its hooks. Torn pieces of a magazine lay scattered on the floor and Predator was playing on the smashed TV with the sound on mute. Zack smiled. He felt at home. "Me and Holly both came here a few days ago from Birmingham and what a mess we've made" said Max happily. "Ey Max who's at the door?" Asked a familiar face. Zack's grin got even wider.
 
Holly Smith had long black hair and blue eyes. She wore a black coat and a dark purple shirt. Her coat matched her jeans and tight shoes. She had a black glove on her left hand and a cigarette in her right, dangling between her fingers. "Hello Olly" said Zack. "It's been some time since I saw you, you bastard" laughed Holly. The two embraced in each other's arms.
 
Max clapped his hands. "Right lets get down to business. First off we go upstairs and smoke a joint just to get warmed up, then we go to the drunken park and do the real deal" he smirked. 
"Let's fucking do this!" Yelled Zack. The trio thumped up the wooden stairs laughing before stumbling into an empty room. About ten minutes later they emerged from the yellow room which now had an odd smell to it. "Just like the old days?" Asked Max. "Just like them old days" replied Zack. 
"So are we going to this park now or not?" Asked Holly.
"Fuck yeah". The sun shined and the sky smelt fresh. The trio walked along the stone pavement towards the nearby park. "Let's hope we don't get caught by them coppers" joked Holly. They sat down on a rusty old bench. "Are you ready fellas?" Said an excitable Max. "You bet I am. What have we got today?" Asked Zack. 
 
Holly unzipped her black bag and the three friends looked in awe. It was full of needles which were full of heroin. "Oh shit!" Said Zack. Each person took a needle and brought it down hard into their skin. They just sat there for a few hours with needles sticking out of their arms. The sun baked them as they sat like sausages waiting to defrost. They all felt so amazing, as if nothing could stop them. That was, until a policeman arrived.
 
"Oi!. You lot. Wake the fuck up" he said. The policeman was a tall, buff man with a black police uniform and green eyes. The trio woke up with a jolt. 
"Oh shit"
"Oh fuck"
"Oh balls"
"You people are in serious trouble. You better come with me down to the station. Come on" said the policeman, PC Thomas. "Run!" Yelled Zack. They all abandoned their bench and started running.
 
Present day
Zack quickly turned another corner with his friends but it led to a dead end. The now five policemen to chasing them were blocking their way. They had no way of escape. Holly sank into the floor and leaned against the red brick wall. The others followed suit as PC Thomas approached them. "We are fucked" spat Holly.
 
They were quickly escorted to the nearest police station and they were all placed in one of the cells. "You lot stay here while we figure out what to do with you" smiled PC Thomas. "Oh bloody hell" moaned Max. They sat on the cold metal benches in the dull bland cell. Ten minutes later they heard a scream. A couple of policemen dressed identical to PC Thomas were dragging a screaming man wearing nothing but white pants across the floor. The policemen to dragged the man into a room with a bright red door and slammed it shut.
 
They were forced to sleep in the cell. The next day PC Thomas opened their door. "All of you are needed in that red room there" he pointed. 
"You know what? FUCK YOU!" Zack yelled. He threw a punch hard at PC Thomas's face. The policeman threw Zack down the deserted corridor. Zack suddenly screamed and ran at the policeman, picked him up by his waist and threw him on the ground. The policeman's head smashed as it made contact with the stone floor. Blood leaked out.
 
"What the hell was that?" Asked a frightened Max. Zack was just as stunned as his friends. He slowly backed away from the dead body. "Holy shit" muttered Holly. "You just killed a man" she continued. Suddenly white sparks flickered on the policeman's lifeless body. The trio examined it closer. A thin wire was sticking out of the policeman's neck and proceeded down throat. "That's no man. That's a freaking robot" said Zack. "Let's get outta here" suggested Max.
 
"The whole of Stockport has been taken over by robots or something" said Zack. They were walking along the empty street smoking a joint. Not a person or robot was in sight. "Well we can't make that kind of judgement yet" said Holly. 
"Well what the fuck do you suggest we do?. Kill a bunch of them and find out?" Asked Max. Zack grinned. "That's exactly what I'm suggesting" he said. "What day is it?" He asked. "It's Sunday morning" said Holly.
"Max. Tell me what do people normally do on Sunday morning?" Asked Zack. 
"They go to church". Said Max. He suddenly caught on to what was happening. "Oh shit really? We're not gonna do that are we?".
"Everyone grab some weapons. Let's go to church" smirked Zack.
 
The church was a tall, grand white building. Paintings of Jesus hung from the yellow walls and a giant cross was at the front of the building. The brown rows where people sat were all in line with one another with enough space to walk down the middle. A chandelier hung from the never ending ceiling. A service had just started when Max, Zack and Holly walked in. The trio sat at the very back. Their were over 150 people in the church.
 
The service went on for five minutes before Zack decided to act. He stumbled to his feet, high on marijuana. The priest looked delighted. "Ah yes a nonbeliever reaching out for guidance" he smiled. The priest wore a long white gown and a white hat. Zack walked towards the priest. "Why don't you step through that red door? We can help you" said the priest. "Oh fuck off you stupid asshole. Your ideals are fucking stupid". Zack said. He turned to the churchgoers "Your all about believing in a higher power? Your 'higher power' is a robot and so are all of you" he said. Zack pointed his gun at the priest and shot him in the head.
 
The priest had a bullet hole in his brain yet he remained standing. All the churchgoers stood up too. "Please join us humans or we will have to use force" smiled the dead priest. "USE ALL THE FORCE YOU GOT" screamed Zack as Holly and Max sent a stray of bullets into the crowd. The church became a battlefield. 
 
Zack shot two robots in the head. Blood spattered on impact. He preceded to slice the cheeks of a female robot before stabbing the knife in the eye of another. Zack punched one of the robots through a glass window and took a shard of glass and stabbed several robots with it. He stabbed a crucifix model into one of the robots stomach.
 
Max used a cigarette lighter he had and burnt several robots faces while stabbing them with a kitchen knife. He then pushed several robots into the wooden benches causing them to break before throwing the kitchen knife into their necks. Max ran at one of the robots, grabbing a two shards of wood from the bench and stabbing the robot on either side of its neck. 
 
Holly shot several robots while smoking a joint. Her aim was perfect. Each shot she took caused the robots brain to explode on impact. After she finished her joint she grabbed two syringes full of heroin and stabbed many of the robots, injecting them with heroin. She grabbed a wooden pole and beat some of the robots before she screamed in rage and stabbed the pole deep into the final robots neck.
 
They looked around the church. Blood covered the walls, limbs were broken, furniture was destroyed and a sea of dead bodies littered the floor. Zack was the first to speak. "Fucking hell" he said.
"We gotta get outta her now" muttered Holly. 
"No I think that's a terrible idea" said Max.
"How so?" Asked Zack.
Suddenly the sound of footsteps could be heard from outside. All the residents were on high alert for the three of them. 
 
Night had fallen and the town covered every entrance in or out of the church. They were trapped. "I feel amazing" said Holly. They were sitting in the church high on heroin. "You know what? I think we should go out there and kick their asses" Zack said. "Letsfuckingdothishit" coughed Max. They each grabbed a weapon and put a few in their pockets. The trio walked towards the door. "We're high as fuck but we're friends and we are gonna see this through to the end" said Zack. He kicked open the door.
 
A wave of robots instantly went for the kill. It was a war-zone. The robots were shot point blank, stabbed in the neck, sliced in the face, beaten over the head with a spanner, had their limbs torn off, had their bones snapped in half, were impaled with sticks found on the pavement, had their eyes ripped out, their faces burnt off and tongues ripped out.
 
There was no one else around. The trio stood in silence as they looked at the dead bodies surrounding them. "We gotta get the fuck outta here. Outta town" said Max. "We could make a break for it now and be outta here by dawn" said Zack. 
"Where do you propose we go?"
"How about to the train station?"
"Bullshit that place will be full of robots" said Holly.
"Oh I doubt that" smiled Max. 
They all ran to the Davenport train station undercover of darkness. It was empty apart from one robot (the ticket guy) who was trapped behind glass. Blood sprayed as Zack shot him through the head. "I can probably get the train moving and then we're out of this shithole" smiled Holly. Max suddenly pulled a gun out and pointed it directly at Holly. "Not on my watch" he smirked.
 
"Max what the fuck?" Asked Zack. Bang. Max had shot the gun just behind Holly. She turned around. "Shit" she cried. The controls for the train were now damaged. "You cannot kill us" Max said blandly. 
"Wait a second" said Zack. He grabbed his gun and shot Max through the head. The electric circuit flash before his skin automatically repaired. "Your a freaking robot!" Yelled Zack. "Not only am I a robot but I'm the best of the best. The new upgrade of robots. Basically I'm extremely difficult to kill, not like those villagers" Max said. 
"Why Max. Your suppose to be our friend. Your like a brother to me" cried Zack. Max laughed "I'm gonna fu-" he said. Holly used a fire extinguisher to hit him over the face. He fell to the floor. "Kill him Zack while I figure out how to repair the train" she said.
 
Zack threw a few punched at Max. Hardly any damage was being done to him. Max picked up Zack and threw him out of the train station and into the street. He coughed up blood but shook it off. He stumbled into a car and started driving away in the hopes he can lure Max away from Holly to give her enough time. He drove to a nearby hospital and jumped out the car. There was no sign of Max. 
 
Suddenly Zack received a punch in the face which sent him flying through the hospital entrance. Max quickly followed. Zack grabbed a chair and swung it into Maxes face. It split in two like an egg shell. However Max remained standing. Zack and Max punched each other as they ended up on the stairs. Max slammed Zack into the cold stone steps and Zack felt agony as his jaw gave way to the ground.
 
Blood dripped from his mouth. Zack quickly kicked Max into the air. He smashed into a light which flickered and died moments later. Zack ran up the stairs and onto the second floor. Max quickly ran up the stairs and burst through the door on the second floor. Zack was nowhere to be seen. Zack suddenly ran at Max, grabbing his head and tossing him through the giant glass window which overlooked the car park.
 
Max was thrown out of the window. He landed face first onto a car, damaging it in the process. He was bleeding but not badly. He quickly jumped up and ran back into the hospital. He found Zack and stabbed his thigh. Zack screamed as his denim jeans turned bright red. Max grabbed a crowbar and bashed Zack's face and left arm in. Max then jumped out the broken window and disappeared.
 
The floor surrounding Zack was blood red. He crawled to a surgery room and grabbed a pair of scissors and some bandages. He put some spare ones in his pocket. Zack wrapped the bandages around his wounded arm. His face could wait till later. He then pocketed the scissors and headed to the window. Not far in the distance he could make out Max in a car driving towards the train station. Zack headed outside and silently followed him in another car.
 
Max had one goal. Kill Holly then Zack. He could then jumpstart the whole robot idea once the humans who knew that he was a robot were dead. He noticed a car behind him. The darkness of the night and the dim street lights made it difficult to make out the driver. The car was catching up with him. Faster and faster. It suddenly overtook him and rolled over like a baby in bed. The car caught fire just outside the train station. 
 
Max parked his stolen car and went to examine the crash. The flames blurred his eyes. Max suddenly couldn't see nor speak of Zack sneaked up behind him and wrapped the remaining bandages around his face like a plastic bag. Zack then dragged Max to the ground and sat on his stomach, the bandage still wrapped tightly around his face. "I'm so sorry about this my friend but you were a fucking asshole" Zack apologised. Max took his final breath as Zack stabbed the pair of scissors though the bandages, into Maxes face. 
 
Zack stood up and absorbed his surroundings. A car was on fire and his best friend was lying dead on the floor with scissors sticking out his face which was covered by a bandage. Zack limbed into the train station. "Bloody hell Zack you looked half dead" exclaimed Holly. They embraced. "What happened to Max?" She asked.
"Max is dead outside" said Zack.
"Oh no. Was it heroin?".
"No. He was a robot and I killed him. I thought you would had figured that out by now".
"The trains now working".
"That's ok" said Zack. He pulled out a syringe with heroin inside. Holly looked sad.
 
"No Zack please no more heroin" she said. Zack looked at her then the syringe. He thought about why he was taking it in the first place. Max. Zack threw it on the ground. "You know Manchester airport isn't that far from here" he said. Holly nodded.
"Yeah let's go"
"Don't you want to take the train to Birmingham?"
"I'll find my way back". They walked out of the train station just as dawn signalled the start of a new day. They got into Maxes stolen car (as it was the only one available) and drove.
 
They arrived at Manchester airport twenty minutes later. Zack got out the car. "Wait here" he told Holly. A few minutes later a black BMW approached Holly. The driver rolled down the window. "D'you like it?" Said Zack. 
"What is this?"
"Holly you drive to Birmingham. I'll see you later"
"What about you?" 
"Well now I've got a car from a very nice man I'm heading Scotland. The one place I call home".
"See you later Zack. I love you"
"Goodbye Holly. I love you too. As a friend of course".
"Oh yeah as a friend".
They each started their engines and drove their separate pathways.
