Disclaimer: I do not own Real Steel or any of the characters in it. I only own Aleksandra.
I was driving to the next big fight between Zeus and and the unlucky opponent to be facing him.
It was getting late and I quickly pulled into the motel ahead, got a room and fell asleep.
I had set my alarm clock for 4am and severely regretted it the next morning. But, I needed to be on my way so I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed and got dressed.
After I paid for the night and returned the room key, I noticed a young boy and a small robot. Intrigued I walked closer.
The boy seemed to be trying to teach the robot to fight, and amazingly the robot seemed to copy every move the boy made; I had never seen anything like it!
The kid then looked over and noticed me, so I figured that I better go over and introduce myself before I seemed like some stalker.
"Hey, kid nice Robot you have there!" I shouted over. His eyes seemed to light up at the mention of his robot. "He is, isn't he!" he grinned back. "What's his name I asked curiously? This was like no robot I had never seen before. Small yet lithe, it did not look it had much hope in the ring.
"His name is Atom, and I am Max." He replied. "Well, I am Aleksandra but everyone just calls me Alek."I said with a grin!
"So, does your robot know any moves?" I asked. A huge grin lit up his face like he had been dyeing for anyone to ask him about his robot! "Yeah!", "I have been up all night teaching him how to fight!" He replied, "He is going to be amazing!"
Not wanting to disappoint the kid I kept my doubts to myself and told him I will have to see Atom fight someday.
He then started to show me all the moves he had taught Atom so far. The kid was very dedicated; I had to give him that!
He reminded me of Tak when he was determined to make something work. I stayed with Max for another hour or two even though I really should have been on the road hours ago. Finally, I could not wait any longer, and had to be on my way.
I said bye to Max and told him that I would look for him and Atom in upcoming matches and I was on my way.
