机器人的三段英文故事
Introduction of The longest way to Death
The great undead army of the King returns with victory,yet only to receive the King’s words:“Go to hell!” Then,the journey to death for the undead starts.With nothing but the sun supporting them across the boundless kingdom,they wander through city-states,lands they had conquered,faced with people’s fear and scoff,yet steadily sticking to their search over every corner of the world.Far away from life,from civilization,the exploiters leave footprints on freezing glaciers,on plateaus with thin air and bright sunshine,on deserts full of heat waves and phantoms,and on swamplands replete with rotten corpses and bones.They fight against beasts and monsters,they run into lonely ghosts,and finally they decide to go to the other end of the planet.Step by step,they march forth on the snow-covered polar region,yet still fail to find the entrance to hell even at the pole point.Suddenly they are enlightened that to find death,they must find life first.So they give up their search for hell,and begin searching for the significance of life among living humans.
Settling in a village far away from dust,they start life with the villagers.The undead join in working,reading,and even open schools,trying to spread the light of civilization and taste happiness and sadness in life.
A winter fire burns the village to ground,yet shortly after that,the undead,with their wits,bring back carts of food and a company of workers to rebuild a better homeland.The workers leave with fine wine made by the villagers,which sends the whole kingdom into sensation,crazy for this wine.Supported by the army,greedy merchants grasp the villagers’ lands.A peculiar and long-lasting war breaks out,with the undead on the side of the villagers.They take advantage of their undead body to protect the village against the King’s army once and again,until finally comes the King with his strongest armies.
“Absolutely obedient to the King.”
——First law of the undead
“Help your friend when he’s in need.”
——Second law of the undead
“It’s impossible to harmonize all the laws within limited procedures.”
——Law Zero
They would never betray the King,the undead say,yet the villagers are their friends.If the King orders to destroy the village,they’d choose to be against the King for the sake of the second law.
“You must be clearer than anyone else about what would be to fight against me!”
“What is it?”
“Death.”
“That’s what we’ve been dreaming of,Your Majesty.”
A cruel war thus ensues and finishes.
The undead are blasted into dusts by the King’s gigantic light cannons,suffusing the whole human world.They may,after billions of years,return,and may not.
