Welcome To The Future, a flash fiction story by Ray Daley

“So, this is a room in the future?”

“Yes sir.”

“Oh, a robot? Cool! Hang on, you’re not going to kill me in my sleep, are you?”

“No sir. I’m a friendly robot.”

“Soooo, the Future, eh? Flying cars yet?”

“No sir.”

“Hoverboards yet?”

“Afraid not sir.”

“Future’s looking pretty shit so far. Okay, screw flying cars. How about self-making beds?”

“Yes sir.”

“You’ve got those?”

“Yes sir!”

“Okay, you can bog off then. Me and this self-making bed are about to become very good friends.”


“Robot! Robot! Get in here!”

“Yes sir? How may I be of service?”

“This shitty self-making bed doesn’t work! Piece of crap. Why doesn’t it work?”

“Erm. This isn’t the bedroom sir. It’s through there. This is the Living Room, sir.”

“Oh. So this so-called self-making bed is actually?”

“A sofa sir.”

“Don’t be funny robot. It doesn’t become you. Bed’s that way then?”

“Yes sir. Good night sir.” Trundles off. “The droids at the club’ll never believe this. In the wrong room? Stupid meat puppet!”
