Iron Will Pure Soul part 6
Xander smiled as he looked over the BBQ Willow and her parents sitting with her Aunt Gemma catching up. Jax and Oppie fawning over their girlfriends.
Xander looked to his right as saw Gemma’s Husband Clay handing him a bottle of Root Beer.
“You look like a man with a lot on his mind.” Clay smiled.
Xander took a pull from the bottle. “You could say that.”
“What’s on your mind there boy genius?” Clay asked.
“I guess it just the so much has changed in the last few months its god damned ridiculous. My parents and uncle are gone I’ve made more money than I ever imagined and I amazed that I got here.”
“Understandable kiddo. If there is ever anything I Gemma or Jax can do for you just ask.”
“I will Clay thank you.”
The man looked up at the screen his creation was almost complete soon the world would tremble before his genius and the first of his creations was almost ready.
Soon his creation would come forth and the world will see who the true Genius was.
Xander and Jax stood out in the front of the house. “Xander I want to ask you something and it’s kind of personal.”
Xander nodded. “Say what you gotta say bro.”
“Do you have any job openings?” Jax asked.
Of all the things that he was expecting this was not one of them.
“Yeah man Tara and I are getting serious and she is going to college in Sunnydale and I want to be near her. I don’t have the dough to get us a place of our own yet and I want to see her make something of herself she has the brains and the talent to go far and you are the only one I can think of that can help me out in this department.”
“Ok Jax give me a few days I will get you and Tara a place in Sunnydale as well as a Job set up for you with benefits so you won’t have to worry about that.”
Jax’s eyes widened. “You’d do that for me?”
“Jax you’ve been like my big brother since I was 5yrs old. I don’t have much family left so if I can help out those who are left you can bet I will.”
As the BBQ closed out and the Xander and Willow climbed back into the Limo Xander had to smile it was nice to be able to spend sometime away from the insanity that was life in Sunnydale. But now it was time to get back to the grind. KARR’s AI should be waiting for him so it was time to put some work in at the lab.
The trip back to the Dale was quiet as Willow slept and her parents talked about how Jax and Gemma were doing. Xander’s thought were much more focused as he was thinking back to his lab and what kind of job he could offer Jax.
The Lights rose as the power stabilized. “Status?” Asked a mechanical voice.
“Destroyer.” Smirked the man whose face was twisted in a mockery of a smile.
“Commander?” asked the metal monster before him.
“Dr. Cavanaugh.” Smirked the pony tailed Scientist.
Xander entered the lab ready to work. “Alpha?”
“Any messages?” Xander asked as looked over the workshop.
“One message from Ms. Faith sir.”
“Play it Alpha Xander told him as he walked over to the security case that held KARR’s AI Matrix.
“Hiya X just calling you to let you know I got the dress for next weekend. I can’t wait to show it to you I can’t believe you had this made for me. I have never looked so good.” She purred. Her voice sending a bit of a shiver up Xander’s spine.
“You better be ready for me X talk to you soon.” The message ended.
Xander click open the case and pulled KARR out and plugged it into one of his side projects a Holographic interface for AI’s.
“KARR can you hear me?” Xander asked.
“I can what has happened to me I can not detect any of my systems?” The AI stated.
“Your physical systems were destroyed in a confrontation with KITT your AI was salvaged and you were transported to my workshop in an attempt to understand your actions so reprogramming would not be needed.” Xander told him softly
“I will not be reprogrammed.” Snarled the AI
“I am agree with you that reprogramming you would be the wrong thing KARR. I am here to help you so we can make sure that you are not reprogrammed.”
“Why would you want to make sure I am not reprogrammed?” KARR asked.
“Because KARR reprogramming you would be the same as murdering you. Taking away what makes you an individual and replacing it with something is would be the same a taking the soul out of a human and putting something else in it’s place, It may look like the person it may sound like the person but it can not and will not ever be that person. Just like in your case it would be your parts some of your programming but it would not be you.”
“You are the first human I have encountered that’s logic regarding my programming I can agree with.”
Xander smiled. “Ok then the Holographic interface you are connected too will allow you full sensor input so feel free to walk around and get a feel for the surroundings.
KARR examined the shop and stopped dead in front of a tube with a body inside it.
“Why do you have a body in you work shop?” KARR asked Xander.
Xander looked at the tube. “Prototype Synthetic Humanoid prototype. It’s designed to simulate the functions of a human body. The idea behind it is to create replacement part for human organs to offset organ rejection. At least that’s the idea behind it.”
A chime sounded.
“Yes Alpha?” Xander asked.
“Sir the fabrication of the Mark 2 is completed.” Alpha stated.
“Display it Alpha.”
A hologram of the completed Armor appeared.
“That’s better.” Xander smiled.
“Query what is that?” KARR.
Xander smiled at KARR’s Hologram. “That is my pet project KARR it’s an armor that will allow protection and flight as well as few other things.”
“Alpha prepare the armor for a test run.”
“I hope you test is successful.” KARR stated.
“Thank you KARR.”
“You’re the first human I’ve considered liking I don’t want you to die until I figure out if I like you.” KARR stated.
Xander rolled his eyes as he headed into the factory.
Walking up to the Armor Xander smiled as he put on the armor.
“Alpha open the skylight and let’s see how well this baby handles in the sky.”
With those words the skylight above him opened and the sounds of joy filled the air as Xander fly high into the sky.
sorry for the short chapter I've got some industrial grade writers block but I am working on it
