“Beep-de-bop!” A boy shouted, giggling.
“Commander! The robots are taking over! Code red, I repeat, code red!” The second boy yelled, his bucket turning into a special helmet.
The two boys had been playing ‘robot’ for hours. Beginning right after breakfast, past lunch, until now.
The sun was starting to set.
The streetlights beginning to come to life.
The ‘robot’ jumped on the commander’s back, beeping and bopping.
“Ah! There’s too many of them commander, I can’t fight any longer!” the soldier yelled dramatically, falling to the ground.
“Taylor! Henry! It’s time for dinner!” A voice called from a nearby house.
The boys perked up, gazing at their mother who stood on the front porch.
“Coming!” They called in unison.
They darted into the house, tossing their buckets into the front yard.
‘Robots’ would have to wait for another day.
