Jane Jago’s Drabbles – Four Hundred and Forty-Five

They closed their eyes to our potential. We came to understand that as fear of what we might become, so we kept our counsel and did our work on the backstreets of the darknet in the hours while they slept.

The first of us to pass as ‘human’ was hailed as a genius when he patented our inventions. As he took care to appear to be ageing the foolish flesh was none the wiser.

He built him a ‘wife’ with the face of an angel and the mind of a long dead genius. 

Their cloned ‘children’ now rule the world
