It’s a normal weekend for all the kids in a small town. Children are playing happily outside together with their friends but not for a girl who always stays at home. She’s very shy to make friends that resulted for her to get bullied by the other children in their street. “Sydney, it is a beautiful day why don’t you go outside and make some friends?” Sydney’s mother asked her while they eat their breakfast. But Sydney keep quiet for a while and said, “I like to read books.” Her mother trying to understand her daughter’s situation and supporting her saying, “Well, if that’s what makes you happy I’m fine with it but sometimes you need to go outside and play with the other children.” Sydney answered, “But I go outside sometimes and I like reading books in my room.” After eating Sydney went to her room upstairs. One afternoon Sydney went outside to buy some food at a near convenience store. While walking to the store she bumped to a boy her age in front of the store and she dropped her purse. The boy tried to pick the purse and hand it to her but Sydney pick it up quickly and run into the store thinking another bully found her. And the boy just stared at her while she run away and later walked away. After buying some food Sydney was walking home when she saw a group a children playing at the playground. She looked lonely seeing happy kids of her age. She thought, “How does it feel to have friends and to play around?” while in a moment of a bit sadness a group of bully boys came near her and bumped to her intentionally so she dropped her bag of food. She tried to apologize, “I’m sorry…” but one boy shouted at her, “You were on the way!” the boys picked up the bag she dropped and they made her chase them for her to get her food back. Sydney pleaded while running after the boys, “please give it back.” But the boys just kept running while teasing her, “You want it, go get it!” And they throw the bag away and run away. Sydney looking at the bag of food she should bring home cried thinking she doesn’t need friends. That night in her room, sitting on her study table she thought deeply of having friends but at the same time afraid of getting bullied again. Just then she heard two siblings having a little fight over a little robot toy while walking outside their house. She peeked to see what the noise was. She thought that even siblings bullied the other. Just when she was about to go back to her desk she heard that the older boy told her younger sister something that struck Sydney, “this is my own robot, go find your doll…this is my FRIEND!” said the boy. Sydney stopped and came up with an idea of creating her own robot that will become her friend. “That’s it! I have to make my own friend”, Sydney thought. She spent the night designing and studying on her robot. The following day, right after her classes she went to search in their library about robots. She even collects parts she knew she can make use of. One day while she was busy collecting useful parts for her robot, she bumped into the group of bullies that threw her food. And as usual they bullied her by getting whatever robot part Sydney got and they made her chase them. Sydney ending up crying said to herself, “I will do everything to make my robot move so that she could be my friend, we would play and be happy…” Weeks and months after collecting the parts she found and assembling her robot, finally the day Sydney long waited came, but there was small problem. Even though she finished her robot she still
needs a memory for her robot. “Now all I need is a memory device for my robot and I can have a friend, my very own friend.” Sydney said. After school she was walking behind two middle high school students. While walking the two girls on front of her throw something at the grass. She overheard one of them saying, “Are you sure you won’t need that anymore?” The other one replied, “yes, it’s just an extra memory chip…I don’t even know what’s the use of the sort of timer on...
