Little Chapter 2: Tall Man of SilverMichael stretched as he awoke, sending a sudden shock of pain through his ankle. As his body jolted at the pain, his head swung back, connecting with The Spine’s chassis. Michael ducked his head forward with a slight hiss.Little Chapter 2: Tall Man of Silver by stories11
The Spine looked down at Michael in alarm. “Are you alright?”
Michael rubbed the back of his head gently, “Ugh.” Was all he responded with, still tired and fighting back the building tears. He didn’t remember falling asleep with The Spine, not that he really minded. He sat up slowly and stretched again, careful to only stretch his arms and chest. He placed his feet on the ground right before The Spine stopped him.
“Where do you think you’re going?” The Spine asked.
“...I gotta... I gotta pee...” He mumbled, trying to stand.
“You aren’t going anywhere without these.” The Spine said, handing Michael a pair of crutches.
Michael grumbled slightly as he took them, positioning them in a way
Little Chapter 1: BulliedMichael and Peter VI grumbled as they pulled their backpacks on. Neither of the boys particularly liked school yet at age 8. Michael was far more hyper than Peter VI at home, but retained a certain amount of shyness at school. Peter V always dropped them off in the mornings, but let them walk home. Neither boy was particularly strong, both were more inclined to brains rather than brawns. Their brilliance and talent had already begun to show through.Little Chapter 1: Bullied by stories11
This day was like all the others on their walk home. They expected it, knew it would happen, it was far from the first time. Even when they tried to run they were caught quickly, never truly able to escape their ill gotten punishment. Their path was blocked by a rowdy bunch of boys.

He liked to use his size to his advantage, tormenting the smaller kids. It always brought him great pleasure.

“I have too much work to do.” Wanda replied simply, furiously working at cleaning one of the manor’s many rooms.
“Why can’t you take a day off? No one’s asking you to do this.” He said. He knew that she wouldn’t respond, or take him up on his offer, but he hoped one day she would. He wanted to see the spark return to her, but nothing happened. He had his suspicions about why she had attempted suicide that day, but he never brought that up to her.
Silence. He had his answer. He gave a small sigh. “Well, you know where to find me if you change your mind.”
He walked to the lab, only about 20 minutes, the fresh air and exercise was good for him, he decided a long time ago. He hung up his coat as he walked in, Heather was already there, like he

The Spine was upset over Brianna leaving, arguably more so than when Holly left, but he refuses to let himself spiral into the same depression as before. Rabbit was sympathetic to start, but after three days, he was beginning to grow more and more annoyed by The Spine. Rather than being passive and secluded, Spine had taken to watching over his older brother’s shoulder, ensuring he does nothing to get himself, or anyone else, into trouble, but of course, Rabbit viewed this as The Spine being a buzzkill.
“Sp-spine, I can l-look afta mys-self.” He snapped, crossing his arms over his chest and puffing up annoyed clouds of steam, finally fed up with being babied by the titanium bot. “Ya d-don’t have to be lookin’ ova my shoulda all the time.”
“I’m not looking after you, I’m merely making sure you don’t get in trouble.” He rumbles in a low baritone, adjusting his tie slightly.
