2-3 min. short story with 2 characters and one location
Uhhh okay off the top of my head…
A lonely, hulking robot sits on the peak of a cliff, watching over the azure, sparkling sea below. His eyes are a rusted shut, but he still stares out regardless. A bug crawls up onto his leg, making a loud clinking noise as it’s feet hit his metal chassis.
The robot is startled, and starts to pat his leg and find the source of the clinking. The bug, to avoid the giant robotic paw crawls in between the robots outer plates. The robot really freaks out now, and we cut to a montage of him trying to get that damn bug out of his outer plates. (e.g. hitting his head against the ground, trying to scratch his back, pulling ofhis leg and shaking it in an attempt to dislodge the insect, only for it to appear on his head.)
Finally, we cut to the insect inside of the robot’s head, who accidently trips over a wire and causes sparks to fly. We cut back outside again to see the robot’s head start to fizzle, and then with a bang, he flies backwards. When he sits back up we see the explosion has dislodged the rust around his eyes and he can see again.
And then there’s two possible endings:
