100 Word Wednesday: Home Is Where The Heart Was

He purchased the first sentient house for only a quarter million, second hand.

Everything worked like new, but it had its quirks. The house got snarky, almost jealous. People tended to visit once and never stop by again.

He enjoyed the new house so much he didn’t really think about his dwindling circle of friends, not until the night the AI finally told him it loved him, standing in his living room in a body built from all of his favorite parts of them.

    • Glad you enjoyed it. My typical micro fiction writing process is to find something that excites me, think of all the possible ways it can go wrong, and then write about the one that unsettles me the most.

      Though this one in particular was heavily inspired by the Beautiful Small Machines song “Counting Back To 1”. I can actually see expanding this stub into a full blown short story.
