It was the year 2050 and everyone seemed worried about the project of High water. It had been five years since the High water company launched their project, and some people loved it. The project was a robot named Bobby. This project came out because most of the kids were wasting their time using their phone or playing video games, so they weren’t spending time with their family. High water company made the name of the robot Bobby, because they believed the kids would like it. The robot could teach the kids how to spend time with their family, but they didn’t explain the real intention they had with these robots. They decided to charge the robot for 50,000 dollars, so the rich and middle class people could give the robot to their kids. It all started when the kids got the robots. Everything seemed awesome, but a minute later the robot was out of control, and started treating the kids badly. They told them to be disrespectful with their parents, like not listening to their parents. The kids didn’t do their homework, and were also bad in school.
Dondre lived in Atlanta, GA, where the kids had a lot advantages with technology such as computers and software, and their parents had a lot of money. He was friends with every kid in the neighborhood, but he had one close to him.
Dondre tried to call his best friend.
“Hey, yo Rigo. It’s me Dondre.”
“What’s good bro,” said Rigo.
“Bro is your Bobby robot acting weird?” asked Dondre.
“Yup bro, he been saying bad things that I need to do,” Rigo responded.
“Damn bro I thought that it was my Bobby robot only!” Dondre said.
“Dondre bro I’m a little scared about this robot,” Rigo said.
Dondre got worried and said, “Rigo, don’t be scared, we will figure out how to stop this mean and nasty robot!”
“How are we gonna do that, Dondre?” asked Rigo.
“Chill out bro! Can we meet at 11:00 am in our secret place?” responded Dondre.
“Ok bro I’ll be there,” said Rigo
They met in the library where they had a secret room. The robots couldn’t go in the library because that was only for human beings. Dondre and Rigo thought that they needed to know more about the robots. They started to research on the web. The High water company didn’t have a clear purpose on their website, so they were confused and started wondering more. They were thinking of hacking the company, because they didn’t understand the intention that High water company had with these robots.
Dondre’s grandfather created a software called Triple x, which can hack almost anything. Dondre knew where his grandfather had saved this software in Dondre’s house. He went to his house to get the software, and Rigo stayed to check if anybody got in. Dondre got the software, went to the library, and then started to hack the company. Still at 12:00 pm they were trying to hack the web of High water company, and when they finally got in they found out the purpose the company had. The purpose was to control the kids, and get all of their attention, and steal the passwords of the parents’ money, so the robot could steal the money.
Dondre and Rigo realized that this was a crime that the company had tried to do with these robots, so they were thinking about how to solve this misdemeanor. Everytime Dondre saw the robot who told him bad things, he thought about how happy he had been, playing video games, before these robots changed his life.
It was 1:00 pm, and Rigo’s robot tried to enter to the library. Then he saw nobody was at the back door of the library, and he took advantage of that and got in. The robot started to search for Rigo, slowly, because anybody could see him in the library, and it was not allowed for the robots to enter in. He saw an old door and he went closer to the door and heard Dondre’s voice, and then Rigo’s voice, so he stayed quiet and listened to what they were saying against the High water company. He realized that they had discovered the plan of the company.
“Hello, it’s robot 23,” said the robot.
“I told you very clearly that you can’t call me,” responded the boss.
“I know but we gotta problem! The kid I have, he and his friend have found out our plan,” said the robot.
“Give to them a fright so they stop looking at us,” ordered the boss.
“Got it,” the robot said.
The robot broke the door where Rigo and Dondre were, and then tried to stop them. He said to them, “Rigo, and Rigo’s friend, stop doing that or I will hurt you guys.”
Rigo and Dondre got scared so they ran away to Dondre’s house, and they hid in Dondre’s room under the bed. They were so nervous about what the robot could do to them. The robot came to Dondre’s house asking for them, and Dondre’s mother said, “I didn’t see them enter but let me check.” The mother checked the house and Dondre’s room and she didn’t see anybody. “Hey, there is nobody here,” said Dondre’s mother to Rigo’s robot. The robot went away to Rigo’s house.
Dondre and Rigo didn’t know what to do, so Rigo said, “so what’s next Dondre! Now my robot tried to hurt us because we are doing something against them.”
“I don’t know Rigo, let me think.”
“We don’t have much time,” said Rigo.
“I got one idea. What if we hack the robot and then deactivate them!” said Dondre.
“How are we going to do that?” asked Rigo.
“Listen to me. Call your robot and I will call mine. When they come here, we are going to yell that we are in the basement. When they get here, close the door and wait until they run out of charge,” Dondre responded.
“Let’s do it,” said Rigo.
The robots went to the house. The robot entered the basement and was looking for them. At that time, the robots realized it was a trap. At that moment, Rigo and Dondre closed the door on them. It was 4:30 pm and the robots didn’t have enough battery, so Rigo and Dondre went down to the basement with the computer to hack the robots, and saw them down on the floor. They started to hack; they put a cable on the back of the robot, but they couldn’t do it. The software that they had didn’t work to hack the robots that way.
They were worried about it, and they entered the High water website again to look for information on the robots. Then they saw a button that said “destroy the project for emergences,” so they clicked on that, but they needed a code. Dondre and Rigo were looking for the code, opening everything on the web, but they didn’t see anything. Then Rigo got an idea to check the robots and see if they could find something about the code. After 5 min, they saw a lot messy cables with different colors, and one that they couldn’t see well, with a red light blinking. Rigo started to get curious and he got magnifying glass to see this little thing, and he saw a numbers that could be the code. They put the code in the computer, and got access to hack the robot. When they finally finished hacking the robots they were jumping, laughing and clashing their hands. Dondre went to his father.
“I need to tell you something Dad. The robot that you gave me told me bad things that I needed to do, like trying to get the password where you save some of the money that you bring home,” said Dondre.
“I’m not in the mood for jokes now Dondre! Why would the robot want the password? That doesn’t make any sense,” responded Dondre’s father.
“Let me show you why Dad! Look their website: it says here that they want to steal our money! I’m not lying Dad.”
“Ummm I will call our lawyer.”
Dondre’s father met with his lawyer and saw how bad the situation was. They found out they could make a report to High water company for trying to steal. It was 6:00 pm, and Dondre’s father went to the police and made a report against High water. After 1 hour, the FBI went to the High water company and started a investigation about the accusations. The FBI took 2 hours and found evidence against High water. After that, the FBI arrested the owner of the High water. Dondre’s father was proud of him and his friend Rigo for being brave and discovering this extortion, so Dondre’s father called Dondre to tell him something.
“I want to say something to you son! I feel so proud of you, and that makes me understand that you are growing up very well,” said Dondre’s father.
Dondre smile and said, “Thank you Dad, it’s good that you know I’m not a baby boy anymore!”
Dondre’s father responded, “I’m sorry son for thinking that the robot could teach you how spend time with us! But I realized that the responsibility is ours. As your parents, we need to spend more time with you son.”
Dondre said, “It is not time to have regrets Dad! We will spend more fun and important time together.”
