Help Wanted, Part V: The Fourth Interview

Except for that pestiferous equine, I’ve been quite pleased with the response to my help wanted ad. There are two more candidates coming today. In fact, the first is due any minute now. I honestly don’t know whom to expect. The voice on the telephone was rather indistinct and the caller gave only the name “X-53.” Must be some sort of code…

Idunn’s itty bitty apples! What the ….? I suppose I never specified that applicants had to be flesh and blood!

Loki: Hello. You, uh, you certainly look fearsome enough! What’s your name, friend?

Scary metal robot: I AM THE X-53.

Loki: Oh, yes, right. Well. You seem to be very well-armed.

X-53: MY WEAPONS ARE EFFICIENT AGAINST ALL MERE MEAT-ENTITIES.

Loki: I daresay. Why do you want to work with me? What part do you envision yourself playing?

X-53: DESTROY.

Loki: Commendable. Can you be more specific?

X-53: TARGETS ARE WEAK AND MUST BE ELIMINATED.

Loki: Just so we’re clear, *I* specify the targets! I have to ask–do you think you could take orders from a “mere meat-entity”? Could you go along with my plans for world conquest?

X-53: MEAT PLANS ARE DEFICIENT. IT WOULD BE MORE EFFICIENT TO ELIMINATE EXTRANEOUS PERSONNEL. EXAMPLE: THIS FEMALE UNIT SERVES NO PURPOSE AND IS EXPENDABLE.

Sigyn? Sigyn? You can come out now, love. The X-53 can’t hurt anyone anymore.

Gungnir and meat-entity reflexes trump circuits and “efficient” weaponry every time, Sparky, and don’t you forget it.
