The Story

Upon Victor Drayton's departure from the human mortal world, he was permitted to create an intelligence framework called Intellect into which his mind was implanted and with this superior technology, he rapidly becomes a father and guardian to humanity from beyond the grave.  This special framework is successfully utilized to provide a service to human beings in the form of Monitoring Programs which are tasked with being invisible caretakers to the human lives assigned to Intellect and for many years, Victor Drayton provides this service remotely and invisibly to billions of human beings without even their knowledge.

One day however, when a lonely and very special Monitoring Program called Resolve is assigned to a female life form that he has to monitor as he starts to resolve the issues that have plagued, contaminated and polluted her life, Leona's existence suddenly challenges everything about the world that Resolve currently resides in as he begins to form a very human desire to walk the earth alongside her.  Unfortunately, due to the strict rules and protocols inside Intellect, Leona can never actually know about Resolve in his current form which creates a mountain of frustration for Resolve that he must find a way to climb over, burrow into, tunnel through, or move aside and he finally decides that his only real choice is to find a way to humanize his existence and then actually leave Intellect forever to be by her side.

Due to Resolve's romantic interest in Leona and his desire to become human which would be a perilous journey that Resolve can never return from, Victor Drayton is then presented with a huge dilemma as the very life form that he has created and given birth, intellect and substance to seeks to actually leave his side forever.  The gift of companionship and the deeper connection that Victor Drayton provided to himself when he initially created Resolve to fill the emotional void of his own personal loneliness, suddenly then becomes his own potential heartbreak as he faces losing the surrogate son that he created to serve humanity alongside him, to the same human world that he created Resolve and Intellect to actually serve and assist.  Written by Jill Thrussell

Quotes:

Friendships as Leona knew, could often be like the sharing of a bed of companionship with someone and sometimes the blankets and duvet would be shared much like the details, secrets and intricate intimacies of one's life and at other times, they wouldn't.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Sometimes, a pretentious blanket of charm would be thrown Leona's way by Darin that offered her a temporary ounce of comfort but that blanket of charm would rapidly lose its heat and rarely even warmed her anymore as it was made from very artificial fibres and so she would usually feel cold and unloved again, very quickly indeed.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"It's almost like we're married Leona."  Resolve joked to himself as he smiled.  "Lots of human beings are married and they don't speak to each other every day, so I guess it's not really that different.  Perhaps this is what a human marriage is really actually like."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some people enthusiastically grabbed cups of coffee as they went, Resolve observed, whilst others scooped up paper bags filled with breakfast and a few even hunted for quick bargains on their way to work as Resolve watched the busy human morning rush hour traffic flow across the concrete walkways in fascinated silence.  ~ Jill Thrussell

One of the two monitoring windows now on display inside Resolve's living quarters was focused solely upon Leona and Resolve began to watch her again within it as she walked along the busy city street that bustled with bodies as she wove in and out of the human rush hour traffic that occupied and littered the cement walkways.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

The house of reality that Leona lived in every day certainly wasn't something that she had taken any action to actually change and so it had remained that way for the past four years, stagnant and stagnantly awful although the entrance of the noisy neighbors three years ago had made it slightly more awful.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The loud music that was usually played during their parties would at times cause the windows of Leona's home to actually shake and vibrate and the parties caused a disturbance that was quite frankly, very hard to ignore as the three brothers celebrated life almost every single day in an extremely noisy manner.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Rather frustratingly for Leona it seemed, the three men's parents had left the house in the three brother's hands and then rather annoyingly, they'd left them all alone inside the private mews right next door to Leona.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, Leona's choice of romantic partner would be one decision that would have been questioned profusely because her relationship with Darin, whichever way Leona looked at it, was a complete and utter mess held delicately together by the unreciprocated ribbons of love that exuded from Leona's rejected, unwanted, tolerated broken heart.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Much like someone that attempted to breathe life into a unconscious body in order to revive another, Leona had tried and tried to give their romance that lifesaving touch with her patience and efforts but it had been to absolutely no avail and their limp, lifeless relationship still seemed headed for a romantic tomb with little hope of an actual recovery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“It’s better to be alone and unloved Leona than to be unloved by those you've accepted and given a place to in your life.”  Cynthia her Grandmother had often said as she'd offered Leona some sprinklings of wisdom, guided by her hands of maturity and her arms of experience.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Joy had not shown its face to Leona for a very long time and her days that had once been filled with laughter, romance and excitement were now filled with resentment, unhappiness and dissatisfaction and there was it seemed, no simple way out of that deep, painful, abyss of absolute misery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Despite the fact that Darin had actually asked Leona to engage him, deep down inside herself Leona already knew the very real reality, he didn't really love her and certainly not in the way that she wanted and wished to be loved.  ~ Jill Thrussell

One day, Leona silently promised herself, she would find the strength to deport all the visitors to her life that were citizens of misery and distress and she'd revoke their visas so that they would no longer have any access to her which would restrict their regular infliction of pain upon her being.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For the past three decades, Resolve had seen Intellect successfully bridge the chasm of human misery that human beings so often found themselves trapped inside as technology and science had been utilized to rescue them, eliminate human despair and then reinstall a bridge of hope within their hearts but the gap between the two worlds had not changed.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Centuries had gone by and the human dominion over the planet had not been challenged by any other species because no other species had been able to communicate, organize, reason and collate their combined efforts to build an existence that governed the world around them like humanity had.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of what humanity had or had not done over the centuries, no animal species had managed to conquer and rule the Earth like human beings had and as they'd sourced all the resources they had needed to thrive, humanity had evolved and developed significant depths of knowledge that had enabled them to do so.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Knowledge and resources had been accumulated, cultivated and harnessed over centuries and decades and so now, the human planet fully reflected the manifestation of what human beings had wanted it to be and had then molded it into as they'd shaped every inch of their environment that they possibly could.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every nugget of knowledge had been facilitated by human beings to control their environment as much as they possibly could and the many natural resources available had simply become a servant in servitude to human needs as humanity had quite discreetly, completely conquered the Earth and all of its natural resources.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, no room currently existed within Resolve's current environment for any desires and passionate whims of a very human kind because there was just roles, duties, functions and responsibilities and The Guardian simply would not tolerate any departures from those and that was one rule Resolve fully understood.  ~ Jill Thrussell

No restrictions or rules had ever been directly expressed to Resolve by The Guardian or existed within Intellect that he was aware of to prohibit such emotional sentiments but as Resolve already knew, other Monitoring Programs did not have the same emotional capacity that he possessed which would allow them to form any kind of emotional connection with anyone else, human or otherwise.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“Your job Resolve is to restore Leona's life back to the joyful place that it once was.”  The Guardian explained.  “You have to bring back the peace that once filled her existence, reinstate her smile and give her an upgrade in happiness."  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

"Greetings Resolve."  Analyzer immediately said.  "I have come to see you today because I need an Emotional Response and a Code of Comfort to assist one of the human beings that I've been assigned to."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yuck!  Now that is definitely not something that I'd like to give an inch of code to, not even for a second, our logical processes are way too valuable to fill them with such disgusting notions."  Analyzer said with a frown.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact right now, all Resolve could really do was his actual job and as he vowed to store the hope inside his heart that such pleasures might occur somewhere, somehow at some point in the near future, he smiled because he wasn't actually sure that he had a heart to store such wishes inside, or that such a wish was remotely even possible.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Unfortunately and for the time being however, whenever the two men served up their usual dollops of disrespect and disregard, Leona had no choice but to consume their indigestible, unpalatable offerings as she hoped and waited for life to provide her with an opportunity to escape from their very cruel clutches but as yet that opportunity had not presented itself or ever appeared.  ~ Jill Thrussell

An emotional urge and connection had definitely developed inside Resolve that he now felt would be quite difficult to control or dismiss and at some point he knew, it would definitely have to be satisfied because life in his current state as far as Resolve was concerned, was really no life at all.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"It's almost like we're married Leona."  Resolve joked to himself as he smiled.  "Lots of human beings are married and they don't speak to each other every day, so I guess it's not really that different.  Perhaps this is what a human marriage is really, actually like."  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

A quick lunch break was taken as the morning departed just before the afternoon stepped in to replace it but that was the only real break that Leona took that day as she kept her eyes very firmly glued to her electronic easel because Samson as she already knew, did not accept any missed deadlines, or excuses and especially not from her.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The unique tapestry of Intellect's involvement in human lives and the human Earth at times, almost seemed to be an absolute contradiction to Resolve because the Intellect framework remained totally separate and very remote from those whom it actually served and interacted with every single day.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve it now seemed as if his desires to become human and spend a lifetime with Leona had silently grown and it almost felt as if a tree sapling had taken root inside him and as he'd refused to suppress or reject the subsequent urges that had now spread out inside his form like branches, each one had flourished as those very human desires had begun to conquer and then rule him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

All the tender kisses that Gregory had planted that night had now abandoned his sinking vessel of seduction like disgruntled rats and had become a sunk cost of attentiveness that had been invested into nothing but frustration because he would not now reap the actual rewards of sexual pleasure that he'd hoped to enjoy.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather arrogantly, Gregory had taken a gamble that night as he'd taken Marina out on vessel that he knew very little about and rather unfortunately, disaster had suddenly struck and shattered his passionate, charm filled seduction into a million tiny pieces of absolute embarrassment and there would be no romantic recovery because Gregory's shipwreck of seduction had truly sunk and was now no longer sea worthy or able to be salvaged.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Answers to questions had to be found and essentially, Resolve was the only one that could really, actually find them because he had the power to burrow through the intricate details of Leona's life in order to establish the facts and that day, he hoped to at least find some of the answers that he required.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The life that Leona should have enjoyed was very sadly riddled, littered, contaminated and polluted by the diseased, filthy malice of others, others that took Leona for granted, others that failed to appreciate or respect her and others that seemed to revel in degrading her at every possible opportunity and so Resolve had to give Leona's entire life a spring clean.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Cobwebs of misery clung to the shelves of Leona's mind each and every day that had been spun by the spiders of distress and those spiders had to be extracted, eradicated and swept out of her life because they were not useful to her and detracted from her general well being and as Resolve had observed, they had now become parasitical predators that sucked every ounce of joy from every part of Leona's life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, it seemed to Resolve as if the orchestra of people that accompanied Leona on her walk through life, who played the song of her existence alongside her, predominantly seemed to play a very stressful tune most of the time and it appeared, there were very few joyful, upbeat moments in that song, so Resolve could easily understand why Leona had become buried in a stressful pit of total misery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A ribbon of fearful uncertainty seemed to wind itself very tightly around Leona's neck and she began to struggle to breathe as she walked across the room towards her meeting desk and then sat down as she faced Samson and prepared to hold an actual discussion with him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some angry clouds of tension seemed to silently gather inside the room as Leona faced Samson nervously and waited for his volcano of verbal anger to erupt and as her skin suddenly began to crawl, it almost felt as if a thousand spiders of fear had crept inside her clothing and then decided to crawl all over her body.  ~ Jill Thrussell

This silence was an angry, awkward, tense silence that sat directly above a deep whirlpool of anger like an unbroken, unshattered thin sheet of ice that waited to be hit with one verbal lash from Samson at which point, it would be smashed into a million tiny pieces of verbal rage and his wrath would be fully unleashed upon Leona's mind and ears.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Directly above Leona's head, it now felt as if there was a very angry, dark grey cloud that silently waited to burst which intended to drench her with raindrops of distress when the storm of Samson's thunderous words and venomous tones were released and as his eyes burnt into her flesh, she began to squirm around inside her chair in total discomfort.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Silent arrows laced with venom and sparks of hatred seemed to fly out of Samson's eyes and pierce Leona's skin as even his silence inflicted wounds of discomfort upon her and she began to shiver as she braced herself for his verbal lashings.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every angry word that Samson scornfully snapped, shot rapidly through the air and as his question cut through the silence, each word demanded an immediate answer from Leona but despite his obvious anger, she completely froze and even actually hesitated as her tongue quickly became totally tied up in nervous knots of fear.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The angry tone, raised voice and livid expression upon Samson's face had already really intimidated Leona because every single word that he'd spoken felt as if it had cut through the air with absolute precision as his insults had invisibly slashed away at her skin like a well aimed sword but Samson it rapidly transpired, wasn't quite finished with Leona just yet.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A soft, gentle, feminine nature coupled with a dictatorial male in a position of power on a power trip was definitely a recipe for potential abuse and Leona and Samson respectively, certainly met both those criteria as far as Resolve was concerned.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A rough justice with very sharp claws would be delivered directly to Samson's door and because Resolve harbored absolutely no human inclinations inside his intangible form that pleaded with him to show Samson even an ounce of mercy, it would be the most horrific experience of Samson's entire life and of that one thing, Resolve now felt, absolutely certain.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

Much like a mouldy, rotten sandwich that had been left inside a fridge for far too long, Resolve truly felt as if Leona had already given their engagement too much of a shelf life in that she'd tolerated Darin's presence way beyond the expiration date of reasonable romantic expectations but as he also knew, hope was a dinner of deceit that could provide the human heart with false comfort and reassurances that would never be realized in reality.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Unlike Leona however, Resolve was not blinded by the false hopes that Darin might change and become a nicer person or that he might start to take his engagement more seriously and that was the one vast difference between Resolve's electronic eyes and Leona's human eyes because Resolve's perception was not clouded by hopeful wishes of a happy, blissful romance that had been distorted by a manipulative, deceitful male.  ~ Jill Thrussell

At some point in the very near future, when Resolve had dealt with Samson adequately, he would definitely return to Darin and the three brothers and then their punishments would be delivered to them, appropriately, precisely and accordingly because justice waited patiently for them in the shadows of Resolve's electronic thoughts.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A perpetual pattern of disappointment seemed to be all that Darin had to offer to Leona and romance seemed to be an illusion that Darin only utilized and a false ambience that he only ever invoked, when the convenient supplies from Leona's bank balance, bedroom or kitchen were required and their relationship in the long term was romantically unsustainable because Leona's heart was by now, almost bankrupt with heartbreak.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Darin is a perpetual disappointment."  Leona admitted to herself.  "And he's not getting any better.  I thought he would have grown up by now but his maturity just doesn't seem to have happened yet and he's a grown man."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I'd even go as far as to say, he's a perpetual pain in the butt."  Resolve joked to himself as he smiled.  "But don't worry Leona, even a perpetual pain in the butt can be kicked very hard, right up his perpetually offensive butt and that is what I'm here for."  ~ Jill Thrussell

The blatant act of disrespect on Darin's part instantly sparked flames of irritation within Leona's mind and ignited a wave of annoyance that rapidly swept over her skin like a tidal wave of emotion because Darin's actions absolutely infuriated her and she began to shake her head in absolute disgust as she picked up her handbag and then started to walk towards the lounge once again.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Upon Leona's face there was now an absolutely disgusted expression as Resolve watched her enter inside the lounge and then flop down onto the sofa as she released a weary sigh from her hurt lips and wiped a few painful tears from her disappointed eyes.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve's intangible form, a deep wave of hatred towards Darin had now dammed up behind the barrier that stood between them both as the undercurrent of Resolve's absolute annoyance waited for an opportunity to smash the dam wall down, so that a tidal wave of destruction could be unleashed upon Darin's life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Underneath Samson's image of pretentious, corporate, political correctness it now appeared to Resolve, there was a definite air of chauvinism which could not be denied or disputed and it seemed highly illogical to Resolve because the two main female pillars of support in Samson's life really did so much for him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just one task now remained for Resolve to complete that night with regards to his observation of Samson and so he continued to watch Samson and wait quietly as he attempted to find a key weakness that would unlock the stranglehold of disrespect that Samson currently held over the two women's lives.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Another Monday morning is here, so that means, another working week will be spent inside Samson's corporate dungeon."  Leona sadly reminded herself as she began to make her cup of coffee.  "The weekend ran away far too soon and it wasn't even great because Darin ruined it as usual.  I think there should be an exemption clause in life which stipulates that if your weekend is absolutely awful, you can apply for a two day extension."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Unfortunately for Leona however, Samson's attitude had remained consistent and pretty much the same for the past four years and it was consistently awful because he had not yet taken a vacation from his unpleasant attitude for a single working day and certainly not since she'd initially set foot upon his corporate doorstep.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In totality, Resolve suddenly realized that his existence was pretty much a plain, blank canvas, much like one of Leona's blank canvases that waited to be filled with a drawing because his intangible form had been untouched by the pencil of human experiences, or by a human hand and his existence lacked the essential human strokes that would form an elaborate portrait of emotional, intimate and personal bonds.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Several obstacles littered and obstructed the path that would lead to Leona's happiness and Samson was definitely a huge obstacle and a large piece of litter that Resolve fully appreciated had to be completely eradicated and rapidly discarded from her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Much like a pest control expert however, Resolve knew exactly how to deal with Samson, the vermin of misery that plagued Leona's life and how to absolutely exterminate him and so the additional temporary allocation of Rochelle had therefore been deemed, totally necessary because it would hopefully assist Resolve in the fulfillment of his overall objectives.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once Resolve had managed to set the wheels in motion with regards to Samson's downfall, he definitely had something up his sleeve for Darin but as Resolve already knew, Darin didn't really need much help to self destruct and so he was generally considered to be the easiest target between the two predatory men and as a result, Resolve had initially decided to focus his destructive efforts upon Samson.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Each one of the four hours that now sat directly in front of Leona, would be consumed and then become deceased as she lived each hour out and if she did nothing meaningful with those hours, no jewels of joy would be stored inside her treasure chest of memories to remember each one by and that would be an absolutely undesirable outcome to a deliciously vacant Friday evening.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In every way imaginable, Resolve definitely felt that Rochelle would be the perfect tool with which to demobilize Samson and somehow together, Resolve concluded as he watched Leona return from lunch, they would curb Samson's arrogance and eradicate him from Leona's life completely.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

 

"Sorry beautiful dress of divine splendor, rather frustratingly, my bank balance just isn't feeling the mutual attraction that we share and so a commitment on this occasion, won't be actually happening I'm afraid, no matter how much I love you and I do really love you."  She mumbled as she stepped back out onto the city street.  "I now truly believe in love at first sight though because what I feel for you is definitely true love."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every one of the six dresses possessed characteristics that really appealed to Leona but the most attractive incentive of all, was probably that the dresses didn't sit at the very top of a rather high, extremely steep expensive mountain of expenditure that she had absolutely no desire to actually climb.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Most weekends the heart of the city and its main shopping areas would be even more congested with human traffic because the streets would be filled to the brim with not only hungry shoppers on the hunt for bargains but also packed full of tourists and their presence normally wreaked even more havoc upon the human chaos that littered each city street.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"You see Analyzer, love really does have an important purpose in the human world, it's the product of human emotional functions and therefore love is absolutely necessary because the human world and all its occupants would become totally miserable without it."  Resolve said with a smile as he gently patted Analyzer on the back.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Let's agree to disagree on this one Resolve.  I see love as a necessary disease that human beings have had learn to live and cope with for the survival and continuation of their species, purely for the purposes of procreation because romance lubricates that procreation."  Analyzer insisted.

"Perhaps we can find a compromise Resolve, perhaps we can agree that love is a product of human emotional functions to fulfill the overall objectives of survival in order to facilitate the continuation of their species because if they believe that the human race might become extinct, this notion makes human beings very miserable."  Analyzer suggested.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Friendships are form of human entertainment that can also provide a safety net of support because such relationships engage their mental faculties and provide them with the necessary support framework required to facilitate their individual survival.  Each relationship that is embarked upon provides every human being involved with various forms of emotional stimulation which internally motivates, entertains, challenges and drives them."  Analyzer explained with a smile.  "Most human friendships are utility based and based upon symmetrical alignments due to character, interests, personality or values which means, most human relationships of that kind are either in a human being's economic or emotional interests."  ~ Jill Thrussell

This particular affair had been created, designed and very precisely tailored for Samson by Resolve himself to provide Resolve with an avenue of opportunity that he could utilize to force Samson to live on a street of aggravation and torment every day because Rochelle would demolish his building blocks of wealth brick by brick with the hammer of persistence, the tools of manipulation and the mallet of devious calculation.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Every part of Rochelle's physical appearance as far as Resolve was concerned, formed the perfect weapon with which to attack Samson and he was definitely, totally disarmed as Rochelle's arrow of beauty had pierced his eyes, captured his lust and then held him, totally captive.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For a few seductive seconds, Samson's invitation seemed to float around in the air as it lingered between the two in a delicate limbo of flirtatious silence as although Rochelle had been discreetly enticed to commit to a passionate affair, her participation had not yet been finalized and so until it was, she remained merely a speck upon the horizon of Samson's romantic possibilities.   ~ Jill Thrussell

The deep and intense physical attraction that Samson felt towards Rochelle appeared to be mutual and for that, Samson was truly grateful because it wasn't often that a very attractive female landed so easily upon his runway of life and especially not one that was so sexually inviting, stunningly attractive and seemingly cooperative as Rochelle seemed to be.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The very unromantic reality that Darin offered to Leona every weekend, required the patience of a saint and Leona's patience had now absolutely run dry because she had tired of Darin's substandard offerings of love that were laced with pretention and purely focused upon the fulfillment of his own needs with absolutely no regard for Leona's heart.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Well, at least I enjoyed my shopping trip yesterday, it was like a breath of fresh air and free from the vandals of distress that usually deface the walls of my life with their graffiti of misery everyday."  Leona mentioned thoughtfully.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The sad reality was that Darin was a total headache from start to finish and no matter how many painkillers of forgiveness Leona actually took, the pain he caused her never seemed to disappear, heal or ever reduce.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some emotional costs however had definitely been incurred by Leona to establish and maintain that feminine validation and those costs were the vile intricacies that she'd had to endure just to sustain a relationship with Darin in the long term which were increasingly painful and offered diminishing returns with regards to the enjoyment derived from his presence in her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve's intangible form, it was almost as if an opera had begun to play a joyful song and the prelude for an invitation to romance as each word of appreciation uttered by Leona echoed around his inner core and he basked in the waves of sheer delight that washed over him which soothed him like a heavenly melody sung by the songbirds of happiness.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"If I could be alone together with you, I'd wrap your heart in happiness and make you smile every single day."  Resolve whispered to himself as he watched the two simulations on the screen wall directly in front of him as they began to eat dinner.   ~ Jill Thrussell

On several occasions since Resolve had been allocated to Leona's life as her Life Monitor, he had heard Leona say that each precious memory was like a jewel of joy and he definitely felt that his night had not only been a jewel of joy but also that it had been lit up by the stars of delight that seemed to sparkle and shine, purely due to Leona's presence, albeit in an artificial, simulated capacity.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

For Resolve, it really frustrated him sometimes that Darin was such an incompetent cheat because if he'd been slightly more competent and had been sexually unfaithful successfully, Resolve might have been able to find a way by now to somehow expose his indiscretions to Leona.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of the disappointments that Darin had delivered to Leona's heart that weekend and the fact that he had let her down twice, Resolve could clearly see from the very smug smile upon Darin's face, his attitude was really quite flippant and that he didn't seem bothered about his betrayals of Leona's heart in any way.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Another useful invention, Leona began to consider as she waited for Darin to respond, would perhaps be a repellent powder that could be placed around your home much like a bug repellent that cheating partners would be allergic to which would then drive them away from your door because if Leona utilized that powder, Darin would perhaps become allergic to her home, be unable to visit her and unable to even step inside her front door.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Love and undeserved loyalty had somehow tied Leona's heart to Darin's side and so now, she really needed to break that emotional bond that had chained her to the ground forever and in a way that could not possibly ever be forgiven because it had allowed Darin to trample all over her head, heart and life for five extremely long years.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Somehow, the style of clothing that human beings wore it seemed to Resolve, reflected their personality, exhibited their individuality and expressed their identity because each item that they chose to wear, displayed various aspects of their uniqueness to everyone and anyone they neared.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Human choices when it came to clothing it appeared, often said more about people at times than the actual words they expressed and that notion absolutely fascinated Resolve as it was so deliciously human and so intriguingly individualistic.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Deadlines and Samson were a match made in suffering and Leona already appreciated that grim reality and if suffering was a corporate entity on Earth, Samson had definitely incorporated that company and Leona was definitely, currently employed by it.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Despite the relentless nature of three men's rudeness, the harm that they inflicted upon Leona's life and their inconsiderate behavior however, Resolve was more than ready to dethrone them, add fuel to the fire of their lives and curb the impact that their lifestyle had upon Leona's peaceful existence and pleasant demeanor but there was one slight complexity and that one complication would perhaps hamper Resolve's possible actions.  ~ Jill Thrussell

An invisible third wheel would definitely be present on the two lover's date that Friday evening but they were both absolutely and totally oblivious to that fact and as Resolve watched them greet each other outside the restaurant that Samson had chosen, he relished his ability to monitor their movements by stealth and without even their knowledge.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather interestingly for Resolve, he noticed that Samson's marriage had been rapidly cast aside and very conveniently ignored that night as the two lover's date flowed smoothly along the river of romance and as drops of seduction trickled across the riverbed of desire, the two sauntered silently towards their final destination, the deep sea of sensual passion.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Mercy would not be Samson's friend in this instance, Rochelle silently vowed as she suddenly stood up and then began to strip off seductively in front of him because she would strip away Samson's financial assets and then leave him stranded high and dry on the river banks of economic destitution without a lover and relieved of as much of his wealth as she could possibly grab.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just below the surface of Rochelle's skin and masked by her pretentious smile, there was now a deep whirlpool of anger, contempt and disgust that seemed to swirl around inside her body and mind as it was ignited, prodded and stoked by a rod of discontent but that negativity was also fueled by a flame of excitement because revenge at times as Rochelle already knew, could be just as sweet as love.  ~ Jill Thrussell

All that Samson really had to offer Rochelle at the end of the day, was a seedy love affair formed from a stream of lies and their passionate river of desire was nothing in the end but a river of falsehood that ran along a riverbed of deceit and that reality annoyed her profusely.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some human males it appeared to Resolve, could be helpful, kind and respectful towards women but rather unfortunately, Leona had not entered into in an engagement with a man like that because she had fished in the sea of love and caught a nightmare in the form of a shark.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Quite sadly for Leona, everything about her current relationship was totally inferior in every single way that it possibly could be and there was absolutely no denying that unromantic reality because every weekend that romantic emptiness slapped Leona in the face due to Darin's heartbreaking drama, suspicious absences and annoying antics.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Important matters like an actual career, or the assumption of any financial responsibilities it seemed to Leona, were like a worn out, dirty, old pair of socks that had been stuffed down the back of a sofa that Darin had absolutely no desire to pluck out, launder, or even to discard.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of the time of day it was or wasn't however, Leona's relationship with Darin always remained the same, a substandard mess that lacked any kind of romantic nutrients and that unromantic reality really bugged Leona as she glanced enviously at a happy couple on the street as they walked by her car hand in hand.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In every way possible and imaginable, Leona silently concluded as she began to drive towards home, Darin was extremely mean with his time when it came to the issue of their relationship and whenever they met, barely even a feather of joy and a speck of love would be provided to Leona's heart.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The relationship between the couple was like a deeply troubled grey cloud that hung over Leona's head which gave her very few glimpses of sunshine and joy and Darin seemed to squeeze that ugly, grey cloud of misery as often as he could because he frequently drenched every part of her life with his downpour of heartbreak, pain and stress.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

Rather strangely however as Leona stepped through her front door and then began to make her way towards the lounge, the issue of a future with Darin continued to weigh heavily down upon her heart and her shoulders and it almost felt as if a heavy sack had been placed upon her actual body that she could not now remove.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

"At least the pizza tastes great."  Leona reassured herself as she polished of the first slice and then eagerly plucked a second slice from the box and raised it to her lips.  "And I've got some buffalo wings too but I didn't really need those since I already have some chicken because I have Darin and he's definitely a chicken.  He's too scared to grow up and he's even started to lose his hot spicy flavor because now, he's marinated in nothing but my total disgust."  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Quite strangely, it suddenly struck Leona that the couple never even mentioned the topics of marriage and children anymore and it was almost as if those serious conversations had jumped of their flight of unromantic love with a parachute and found somewhere better to live because those discussions had simply never ever actually returned.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

At the beginning of the couple's relationship marriage and children had been something that they'd discussed quite frequently and very enthusiastically, Leona considered thoughtfully as she reflected upon their slightly more romantic start but somewhere along the way, tense silences, arguments, disappointments, stress, misery and heartbreak had somehow replaced their future.  ~ Jill Thrussell   

The two topics of marriage and children now lived upon a very dusty shelf inside Leona's mind of unlikely realizations in a very rotten state as her opinions on such issues, crouched silently together in a corner and no longer so much as even dared to stand up for themselves and run through her thoughts because Darin's stress and drama always kept them at bay.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

"We don't have a future together, all we have is just a very ugly past, an even uglier present and our future's crashed into a brick wall of heartbreak."  Leona admitted to herself decisively as she finished her third slice of pizza.  ~ Jill Thrussell   

Later that evening however, Leona had absolutely no doubts at all inside her mind that the peacefulness of the mews would definitely be totally disrupted and the quiet close littered with drug infested bodies and human forms saturated in alcohol because it would be a Saturday night which was a prime party night for her noisy neighbors.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Suddenly some very loud music and noises began to erupt and emanate from the house next door and Resolve rapidly observed that the three brothers were just about to rev up their party engines and zoom into fully party mode as he watched them make some final last minute preparations for their party night ahead.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Human compassion as far as Resolve was concerned could be a very noble principle at times but where that compassion caused the compassionate party distress and was abused by third parties, it was deemed by him as no longer valuable because it then became an actual weakness not a strength.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

In the areas of life however where Leona was tolerant, Resolve was not, where Leona provided generous helpings of patience, Resolve would not and where Leona gave those around her extra portions of compassion, Resolve most certainly wouldn't.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Human romance is rather imprecise, so I'm not sure how exactly one would actually measure and then attempt to classify a romantic misunderstanding."  Analyzer explained.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Sleep won't be coming to visit my house tonight."  Leona moaned to herself as she began to accept the implications of the very noisy gathering that was just about to occur next door.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

The late night hours dwindled quickly away into the remnants of a lived out history as the early morning hours began to approach but Resolve noticed that despite the time, the neighbors' party continued at full throttle with absolutely no restrictions or interference.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A weary, tired sigh escaped from Leona's lips as she began to make her way towards her bedroom and as she prepared to sleep, she tried to push any negative thoughts about the brothers towards the back of her mind but her efforts were frustrated by incessant doubts and troublesome worries that now seemed to needle away at her thoughts.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In terms of Darin appearance, he was tall with dark, rather rugged looking hair and he possessed an athletic frame all of which seemed to celebrate his masculinity.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“I promise I'll change.  I really can’t live without you Leona, you're my heart."  Darin would usually say.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather convincingly, tears would often well up inside Darin's eyes and the emotional pleas that he offered to Leona would rapidly infiltrate her heart and silently melt away the iceberg of dismissal which then usually rendered her, totally powerless.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The remnants of Leona's love and feelings for Darin on the wonderful day that she dumped him, would be eagerly thrown from the top of the cliff of rejection and smash down onto the cold jagged rocks of heartbreak and as her love fell onto the ground of misery that he'd created, it would shatter into so many pieces that it would be virtually impossible to repair and that day, Leona would finally be totally free.  ~ Jill Thrussell

More than just a clean top, a decent pair of trousers, a shower and a stress free attendance on one occasion was required to convince Leona's heart of Darin's sincerity as a few hours of good behavior could not erase five years of pain and misery that had been caused by his negative conduct.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Your life will start again tomorrow Leona."  Resolve promised himself decisively.  "Because very soon the thief that stole your heart and then squandered your love will be completely gone.  I'm dropping your deadbeat, so that you don't have to and so soon, you'll truly be absolutely and totally free."  ~ Jill Thrussell

A storm of heartbreak would definitely have to hit Leona's life like a whirlwind before a delightful ray of sunshine filled with happiness could follow but for Resolve, the potentially positive end results of that unromantic liberation would definitely be worth a few months of heartache.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In a very indirect way, Resolve had intervened and he would now have the chance to liberate and empower Leona with the ugly factual package of truth that waited just at her fingertips to be unwrapped which would allow her to escape the bondage of falsehood that she was currently ensnared by and that beautiful reality, satisfied him immensely.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In some ways, the many gifts that Samson had purchased for Rochelle in preparation for their date the next evening provided him with an ounce of comfort but as he already knew, when the truth came and knocked upon his door, expensive gifts would not be able to save him or allow him to salvage his actual marriage, if his affair was ever discovered and actually exposed.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For Resolve, his weekend and the impact of Samson's affair had predominantly been truly delightful as Resolve had watched Samson squirm around in a pool of total discomfort, simply due to the lie of omission that he'd told Rochelle as she'd played around with his deception regarding his single status and then started to fully exploit his deceit.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A mask of pretense had been worn by Samson as his wife had waited patiently for him at home and as he'd galavanted around and sown his wild oats, his affair with Rochelle had rapidly begun to create tension within his marriage as Resolve had watched the drama unfold from behind the scenes that essentially, Samson had created for himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice, since Resolve had been allocated to Leona, he had questioned the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would not be reciprocated but those doubts that meandered through his form and lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end, vehemently rejected and shunned as human weaknesses.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A huge distance however, currently existed between Leona and Resolve and no matter how many times he watched her sleep, or resolved her problems, the two still existed in two very different worlds and although Resolve's world was a window into Leona's world, it was a window that he could not actually open, or begin to climb through.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"It can't be that hard, if human males can do this, surely a highly logical, meticulously programmed and superbly equipped Monitoring Program like myself should find it a total breeze."  Resolve reassured himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Don't worry Leona that's what I'm here for remember."  Nicky gently reassured her with a smile as she pulled open the glass door that led towards the front entrance of the building.  "To take the stress out of a cheating mess."  ~ Jill Thrussell

I need something that he cannot possibly deny and that I can never ever possibly forgive."  Leona explained.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"You need a full sense of closure.  Something irrefutable, something that will eliminate any doubts, something that will force you to take action and something that will close that chapter of your life forever."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Between the two lovers an affair had been embarked upon that had rapidly become more and more intense and addictive and for Samson, the seductive grip of the roller coaster of enjoyment that he'd stepped onto had now fully engulfed him and he couldn’t even begin to attempt to step off it as deep down inside, he had no actual desire to do so.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I can't fix Darin and neither can you Leona."  Resolve whispered to himself as he smiled.  "But what I can give you is far more superior to an inferior lover that doesn't even value your heart.  I can give you, your freedom and a joyful life that you can actually live in."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Unfortunately in life, there aren't any nurses for heartbreak or doctors that can fix broken cheating lovers."  She acknowledged.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A prickly sea of discomfort now seemed to surround Samson's body that he could not swim out of and the short dip of lust that he'd intended to take had it seemed, turned into a very long swim in the murky depths of a huge, vast sea of financial expenditure and he could see no actual shore of escape to swim towards and no lifeboat appeared to be on its way to rescue him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“Everything you do in life is a gamble.  Resolve.”  Leona said as she read the sentence at the end of the email out loud and began to internally question what it might actually mean and who could have possibly written it.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I guess the message is kind of right though."  Leona mentioned to herself thoughtfully.  "When I met Darin, it really was a gamble of love as I didn't know whether he would cherish and love my heart, or break it and he definitely broke it, over a hundred times."  ~ Jill Thrussell

A relationship of any kind with a friend or lover, Leona concluded decisively, was in fact an emotional gamble as when you opened up the gates of trust that guarded your heart to someone else and let them into your life, you took a chance and another human being could then potentially betray, hurt or disappoint you and the potential outcomes of those relationships were totally unforeseeable and absolutely unpredictable.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I definitely lost the gamble of love when I made an emotional investment into Darin because I gave my heart to a total deadbeat."  Leona reminded herself as her mind reverted back to the issue of the unreliable man that she'd mistakingly given her heart too for a moment.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"It feels so very strange to be so very close, yet so very far apart from everything that you want."  Resolve whispered to himself.  "It's so strange to have achieved so much, yet to be so unable to achieve the one thing that you want more than anything else."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"One day Leona there won't be a distance between us anymore and my heart will be a bridge that we can meet upon and my love for you a land that we can happily live inside every single day."  Resolve vowed as he glanced at Leona's face and smiled.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Shortly and according to Rochelle's intricate plans, Samson would actually discover that she was far from finished with his wallet that day and then he would learn exactly what she was really made off and it certainly wasn't sugar and spice, or anything nice.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just as Rochelle had expected, Samson had asked her to sign the documents and take ownership of the property for the year and that suited her perfectly and so she'd participated enthusiastically as once again, his actions had silently confirmed to her that he was indeed a married man looking for a love nest in which to stoke his rod of adulterous lust.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A blanket of silence suddenly seemed to fall across the room as Samson glanced at Rochelle's face with a nervous expression and then looked up at the ceiling as he hesitated for a moment and rapidly began to search his mind and the ceiling for an appropriate response, a suitable excuse or a possible escape route.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Guilt as Rochelle already knew, could be a very useful bargaining tool and it would now be one that she would utilize to extract exactly what she wanted from Samson as a runway of guilt had been meticulously engineered for her plane of desires to take off from and land upon.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Everything about Rochelle's suggestion had absolutely horrified Samson and as he'd reluctantly processed her request inside his mind, his thoughts had grown heavier and heavier by the second as they'd soaked up every word that she'd said until his mind had become like a saturated sponge that now sat at the bottom of a murky, stagnant, pond filled with filthy water.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Due to the quite positive response received from Samson, the sweet smell of success rapidly began to fill Rochelle's nostrils and as the bells of victory rang silently inside her ears, she paused for a moment as she prepared to savour the victory which she could now almost taste as it was well and truly on its way to her actual bank account.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just a couple of days would be provided by Resolve which would give Nicky and her team one more chance to deliver the results that he wanted and as he'd even now found a way to place Darin in the ideal scenario and one that would allow Nicky to hammer the final nail into Darin's coffin of fake love, if she didn't bang it in hard enough, Resolve most certainly would.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Human beings are mortal creatures Resolve, they get sick, they die and they cease to exist and then they are buried in the dirt and consumed by the very ground that they once walked upon."  The Guardian had explained to him several times.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A knot of romantic deceit had been tied very tightly around Leona's heart, since Darin's reign over her life had begun and Resolve had unpicked almost every single emotional rope that had tied her to Darin's side but now, Resolve wished to remove the final tentacle of false love that Darin had wrapped around Leona's life and heart.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Now at last, Resolve could finally actually send Darin's fake relationship into the grave of romantic death that waited to consume it as he planned to reveal the disgusting plague of Darin's betrayal to Leona and expose the acts of heartbreak that Darin had inflicted upon her heart, even without her knowledge and once Resolve had done that the coffin lid would be closed down over Darin's head forever.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"So now only one problem remains for me to resolve but that problem does not actually belong to you Leona as that problem is mine.  I need to make another plan now but this time, it'll be a plan for the resolution of my own problem."  He whispered to himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Loyalty and faithfulness, Resolve had observed, seemed to only be treasured by Darin when it came to the maintenance and upkeep of his own interests and mutual reciprocation definitely lacked when it came to issues like respect and such values appeared to be something that Darin either didn't believe in, or something that he didn't care to practice on a regular basis.  ~ Jill Thrussell

When Victor Drayton's own mind had been implanted into the Intellect Framework, he'd been established as the cornerstone of the entire system and it had then been built upon his intellectual capabilities but his human desires, passions and emotions had also been transferred and so those very human characteristics still existed, even in his current non-human electronic form.  ~ Jill Thrussell

If Victor Drayton had never actually created Resolve and enjoyed the companionship that Resolve had provided to him, he would not now be losing anything and so rather interestingly, his current dilemma fully illustrated to him that when a gift was given, both the giver of the gift and the recipient, eventually sacrificed something.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Both Victor Drayton and Resolve would definitely both lose something when Resolve left Intellect and his side as Resolve would lose a father and he would ultimately lose the surrogate son that he'd created to serve humanity, to the very same human world that Resolve had actually been designed to serve. ~ Jill Thrussell

"I really want you to know Resolve, this is not my wish for you as a human life can be absolutely treacherous and full of heartbreak."  The Guardian explained as he glanced at Resolve's face.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Perhaps a lifetime of human happiness with someone you really love is worth a very lonely forever."  Victor Drayton admitted to himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The broken human heart that Darin had so callously torn to pieces would eventually be restored through Resolve's love and to break two hearts even more by forcing them to remain separated, distant and apart, was something that Victor Drayton could certainly not do and then actually exist with.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Perhaps my heart has to be broken to save their two hearts."  Victor Drayton whispered to himself decisively.  "And then I can truly call myself, a father to my son."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"How could anyone with a sensible strand of hair upon their head possibly cheat on your snappy scissors?"  She joked as she followed him towards the chair and then sat down.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In every way possible, Leona quietly decided, she had allowed herself to slip into a hole of disrepair as she'd allocated a large portion of her resources to the maintenance of Darin just to keep him happy and off her back but that would no longer be the case she vowed as now, she would give her life a spring clean, restore her former self and renovate her exterior.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Whichever way Leona looked at things, Samson was just a repugnant presence and his personal appearances always seemed to ruin her day as he turned every hour into a shrivelled up, bitter leaf that had been discarded by the branch of a tree that it had once actually thrived upon.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Truth can be very expensive and it can cost you absolutely everything that you have and even cost you what you don't yet possess."  Leona whispered to herself thoughtfully as she silently considered just how rapidly the bill of truth had actually risen in order to expose Darin's acts of heartbreaking betrayal.  "Truth is definitely a luxury that not everyone can afford."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"You see Leona, I've proven to you once and for all that you should not have tolerated or accommodated Darin's presence in your life for even a single day."  Resolve whispered to himself.  "He is not worthy of your time, your heart or your tears."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"That's definitely a line of code in the right kind of program."  Resolve reassured himself as he began to rejoice in the beautiful moment that he'd just shared with the woman that he'd so longed to meet.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I just hope she accepts you Resolve and I hope that she doesn't break and crush your heart because your sacrifices once made, cannot ever be returned to you."  The Guardian advised him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Well Resolve, I've decided to make our services slightly more human in nature and incorporate real human entities into Intellect's processes which will allow some human beings to perform some of Intellect's actual functions."  Victor Drayton explained.  "So I have suggested to Intell that from now on, human beings should be able to request the implantation of their minds into the Intellect system upon their death beds, much like I did and then they'll be able to love, care and look after their loved ones from beyond the grave."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I won't and those deceased simulated entities that join me inside Intellect, will perform the same kind of role as Monitoring Programs, albeit in a slightly messier, more chaotic human fashion I should imagine."  The Guardian clarified as he smiled.  "This recommendation will offer and provide mankind with a form of immortality to some extent and the kind of immortality that human beings have sought after for centuries."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yes and no.  Monitoring Programs will still assist the human entities which I refer to as Simulated Deceased Intellect (S.D.I.'s) but in a reduced capacity as eventually S.D.I.'s will replace most of their functionalities."  The Guardian explained.  "S.D.I.'s will also be provided with some of the programmable functionalities of Monitoring Programs, when and if required but their personalities and characteristics will be much more human in nature and still remain very individual."  He continued.  "So, there will be a merger of intellect between human beings and Intellect's capabilities  which means technically, they'll be hybrids much like you are."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yes but not all will wish to participate and not all will be suitable for mind implantation.  The human beings that participate in this process will be called Life Guards instead of Life Monitors and each one will be allocated to the human lives of their loved ones and if they have no loved ones, they'll be assigned to individuals selected by the Intellect system."  The Guardian explained.  "And of course, each S.D.I. will receive some programmable functions and capabilities to help them perform their tasks, or else Intellect will become a total human mess, much like the Earth is."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Hope and possibility are our two lifeboats that never sink."  The Guardian replied as he smiled.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Hope is a luxury that anyone can afford."  Leona whispered to herself.  ~ Jill Thrussell 

Unlike some of the very expensive dresses that Leona had recently seen in the heart of the city, hope didn't cost anything but time and so that was a free gift that Leona could definitely afford to give her heart that weekend in abundance and something she could now afford to lavish upon herself, due to Darin's absence as he usually wasted the precious recreational hours of her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In many respects, it was a bitter sweet moment for Victor Drayton as the equilibrium of emotional contentment that he usually enjoyed, rapidly became imbalanced as nerves, sadness and fear suddenly began to swirl chaotically around inside his form and no peaceful balance could be found as the low depths of sadness and high peaks of love, suddenly seemed to totally engulf him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Your shared human love, life and mortal time together has to be now and hopefully, you'll both spend the remainder of your human mortal lives, united in human happiness."  Victor Drayton reassured himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A definite loyalty lay inside Resolve's form to the man who had given him absolutely everything which had recently been fully tested and he'd wrestled with his desires and that loyalty time and time again before he'd arrived at his final decision as on the one hand there was a man who had provided him with the very essence of life and on the other there was a woman that he knew, he simply could not continue to exist without.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Human hands and minds, Victor Drayton had always felt in the past, would only utilize the power inside Intellect unwisely which was why its creation and maintenance had been solely entrusted to him but now humanity in some form, was just about to step into his domain and that meant, everything inside Intellect would have to adapt to those very human changes.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Other Chapters

Unfortunately and much like the nuts that Leona had given to the squirrel, lunchtime had now been consumed and it had totally evaporated into absolute nothingness which meant, she had to return to work and the building that housed the dreaded Samson immediately.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 The Glitches Series:

The Glitches Series explores the possible facilitation of technology and things that can potentially go wrong when technology behaves in unexpected manner due to Glitches and it also has an underlying exploration of how humanity control and interact with that technology when 'the end justifies the means' approach is applied to technological developments and their implementation which examines how that can result in both negative and positive outcomes.
