#Fridayfictioneers: Compromise

“Here you go.”

Holtzman groaned.  “What the hell is that?”

“You said you needed a battery.  This is what we have.”

This is the worst mad scientist lab of all time, Holtzman thought.

“You hired me to build a killbot.  A four-story tall killbot.  You were very specific about four stories.  How do you expect me to power a four story killbot with AAA batteries?”

“I don’t know,” Gilbert sniffed.  “You’re the scientist.  You figure it out.”

Holtzman thought carefully for a few minutes.

“Fine.  I can do three stories.  But you’re going to have to find me a nine-volt.”
