An alien mercenary treks up a mountain for a simple job, but nothing ever goes to plan when robots are involved.
A short story (~1,600 words) I wrote a couple years ago for a writing thread on /tg/ where we rolled for writing prompts. I didn't get any feedback in the thread, but I recently reread it and pretty well enjoyed it so I wanted to prevent it from being lost to the mists of time. I seem to be collecting my older non-porn works these days so I may as well share it here. This story contains a single F-bomb, which hopefully won't run afoul of content guidelines.
My prompt was "a [robot] [pursues] an [alien] on/in [a mountain]." It was an odd prompt since I generally prefer having some grounding for my characters to be related to, and both the alien and robot obviously aren't human. My solution was to write it in a looser style that was hopefully still evocative.
