SoCs : Deactivated.

Thrown in the  corner all in  bits, only  the  head  left  working, unit 752  was  thinking. Why  after 15 years  of  uninterrupted service  was it  to be subjected to this humiliation. Thrown here and  left  for all the other  units  to  see. Bits  and  pieces shoved in the  corner  only the   head, the  brain  left  here  to  think  and  remember  while  waiting  to be Deactivated!  Defunct! Decommissioned!

Then  it   saw  a work companion,  unit 800 coming into view, shock, fear  and hope hit  all at  once ! Greeting  unit 800 it  was taken aback when the  companion  of ten years just ignored the greeting   and  picked up it’s head  and  walked towards   the  room at  the  end of  the hall . The  last  thing  unit 752  read  was  the  notice on the  door which  said  Unit Deactivation  and De- Assembly  Area.

    You got lots of points for de- and -ed’s! Creepy imagination you have there. But that’s what you need for good writing!
