THE ANDROID DIARIES

I am an android phone. Just bought, currently charging, all apps installed and set to go.

I blink and open my eyes to a squinting teenager, or so it seems. He configures his facebook, gmail, whats app and twitter and I get his name..."stefan salvator". I immediately use my resources that include google, true caller and what? I have an IMDB app? hmmm...and was quite taken aback on what I found!

This guy was a VAMPIRE!! well, i might as well get used to it, am not going anywhere.

Me : Hello there, Stefan.


Stefan : Whoa...do androids talk?


Me : HA...do vampires exist?


S: Fair enough.


Me: so, how long have you been around?


S : 163 years, was born in 1846, turned vampire in 1864, been 17 every since... :)


Me: And that makes you a teenager? HA..the first of my ancestors(the telephone) were patented in 1876. you are much older than that!!


s:Can we drop the age topic please?


Me: sure..do you have a dog?


s: no


Me: Maybe we can get you a blood hound...ha ha ha


S: hmmm...


Me: What's your favourite animal...a giraffe? lol


s: will you stop googling for bad vampire jokes!! I will cut off your wifi..


Me: Go ahead..you should have thought about that when you subscribed for a unlimited 3G data plan..he he


S: you talk too much..you need a good scare.

*shows his really scary vampire look with blood shot eyes and fangs et al*


Me: *flashes on screen some screen shots of exorcist, evil dead, friday the 13th and nightmare on elm street*


S:*grows pale and sighs* I give up!!


Me:LOOK BEHIND YOU..THE SUN IS RISING!!!ITS ALMOST DAWN!!


S:*cringes with fear, looks alarmed and then at his watch* WHAT!! its twilight...


Me:Configure the time in my clock will ya!! rofl...you vampires are easy to fool..you are born suckers!! :P


Me: btw...what's with the IMDB app?


S: why not..vampires can't watch movies? What can vampires do? Watch world wars and attend speeches of great world leaders throughout my life?


Me:oh..


S:Oh no...my brother is here..


Me: why the "oh no"?


S: he is not a nice guy like me..


Me:Well...intro please


S: Damon..this is my new android. my dear talkative android...this is my brother Damon Salvatore.


Me *speechless and stunned, my lights burn dim and then brighter again*


Damon: *eyebrows raised*
I thought you said this android could talk..

S: *Smirking* So what's new...!!

Me: *still stunned and not even blinking now*


D: hey, can I borrow your android for the evening..am going out for dinner?


S: Am not sure...I just got it..


Me: Pssssst...*in a whisper* what's your problem? just let me go...or will show him your facebook friends list!!


S: *alarmed*...fine fine..


Me: *clicks a quick picture for my permanent memory*

It rains as we drive and pick up a girl on the way. I silently curse. We keep driving and reach the mountain side and a dark forest. What?

I then hear a shuffle, a push and then a blood curdling scream. Running and more running...then suddenly as it all began all grew quiet. The sight I then saw was one I was never going to forget till someone did a factory reset of my settings. Lying in a pool of blood, was the girl...dead!!

I started trembling. Damon noticed this, raised an eyebrow and asked me, "are you scared?"
I said, "No..I am on vibrate mode..you are getting a call."



P.S : The characters used in my post is based on the books and tv series "The vampire diaries", http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vampire_Diaries.
