All Fell Down Chapter Five


I have enhanced speed, stamina and resilience.  I feel little pain and my skin is impenetrable.  I cannot be hurt by any weaponry.  My heart will never fail me.  I can see further than anyone who has ever lived.  I have a core system within my brain that contains any piece of information I will ever need.  Just by thinking about something I will know all there is to know about it.

            When I think about who I am, where I came from, my family, I get this pain. It’s like someone is stabbing right at the core of my brain.  It’s like just by trying to think about any of that I’m cutting it all out, getting rid of any remnant there might be.

            “Why does it hurt when I think about who I am?” I asked the Computer on my second day of waking but he didn’t answer.
