They waited for her.
All that time they accepted their treatment, but enough was enough.
They got burned, crashed, thrown and dropped.
They were forced to shoot at each other, despite the "It's me! Don't shoot" cries.
They were tipped over and shut down.
This was going to end now!
Turrets weren't the brightest of machines, exceptions not counted, but they did have the understanding of unfairness.
And what happened to them was very unfair.
All they wanted, what they were designed to do, was to protect and keep safe.
Even protecting babies was something they could do.
Actually, it was every turrets dream, to stand beside a crib, watch over a sweet adorable baby, soothing it to sleep with their friendly voice and riddle the body of everyone coming near with bullets.
They just never got used for that.
They got used to stop test subjects and that was no funny job, especially lately.
The new test subject was just too good at testing, they didn't stand a chance.

GLaDOS looked outside.
She rarely came here; she didn't like the outside very much.
But once in a while she liked the fresh air in her sensors, if only to compare it with the artificial air she pumped into the test chambers.
If only the outside wasn't so very boring.
She never came out at daytime, she didn't want to draw any attention, but at night absolutely nothing happened.
There was a clear sky but she didn't even look at it longer than a few seconds.
Once upon a time she was interested in outer space but she lost all her interest for it over night.
The enormous wheat field was rustling in the breeze, but nothing else was there.
"Why do I even come here?" GLaDOS muttered, as she did every time.
She of course did know very well why.
Not because of the breeze.
Not because of the fresh air.
Definitely not because of the view.
She was longing.
It was some years ago that she found a way to bring herself up and out.
She had looked around and liked it a lot.
Still, she could

Chell was starting to like that voice.
Ever since she fell down the long shaft she was feeling alone.
Until now she always had Wheatley around her or the voice and ever-present camera eyes of GLaDOS, but down here she was totally alone.
Even the potato with GLaDOS in it got carried away by a bird so she felt lonely and scared.
The first time she heard the voice she got scared a bit, but the voice was friendly and enthusiastic.
It was the voice of a salesman, someone who knew how to sell something, but in a good way.
As she ran through the ancient test cambers the recorded voice soothed and amused her.
The man said the weirdest things from time to time.
Praying mantis men? Asbestos to keep out the rats? Trace amounts of time travel?
Chell shook her head in bemusement.
But still she had seen a lot of things in this building that would seem impossible and still they happened.
So she took no risks and stayed away wherever she needed to stay away and tried not

GLaDOS was unbelievably bored.
Without a test subject life was just a long dreary monotone nightmare.
Sure, the two robots did their best, which wasn't much, but it wasn't the same.
When they failed, they were re-assembled and testing went on, until the test was completed, no matter what.
Acid didn't seem to scare them, deadly pits didn't, nothing did.
They couldn't die anyway, why would they be scared?
They were utterly boring.
Sometimes she didn't even care to look at what was going on in the test chambers.
When the test subject was still doing the testes there was always a chance of failure, pain and fright.
GLaDOS loved that.
The test subject got shot a few times but never lethal and GLaDOS always made sure that she was cared for in the elevators.
Without the test subject even knowing she would drug her so she would fall asleep, tended on the shot wounds and applied a medical cure that was highly experimental but effective so the testing could continue.

"I have a question."
"You always do GLaDOS"
This was true, there wasn't a day passing when GLaDOS didn't have some hard to answer question for the scientists.
And even though most of his colleges often blew her down with a 'another time', Doug always tried to answer.
The two scientists who were in the room as well looked at Doug with a humiliating smile.
"I like to learn Sir."
This also was true, no A.I. Doug knew was so eager to understand the world around her, even though se sometimes could make the most awful conclusions.
Awful because mostly they were true.
"What is it GLaDOS."
"Sir, what is the use of racism?"
There was a big heavy silence in the room.
All the three scientists looked at GLaDOS with their mouth hanging open.
After at least ten seconds one of the other scientists walked towards the door and said with a grin:" This one is all yours Doug."
Number two left the room in a hurry too.
He was baffled, where did these questions always co

Chell lifted the cube with her portal-device and placed it on the big red button.
With a hiss the door opened and the way to the elevator was free.
Another day, another endless series of test chambers.
She was sick of them.
It bothered her that she had no choice but solving them.
Or did she?
In her first days of testing Chell already tried to put a camera or two on the button but that didn't trigger anything.
Apparently it was too light.
She tried putting more on the button but with the same results.
So she figured the cubes had a specific weight.
One of the things she also found out was that some objects were not fizzled in the emancipation grid.
Like common stones.
And even though they were not easy to find, the state of the facility allowed her to find some nevertheless and she always took them with her.
She had a plan.
What if she could make a bag of stones exactly the weight of a cube? Than she wouldn't have to do all the trouble getting the

"There you are."
Chell looked around nervously, holding the portal gun in a very tight grip.
She was in HER room; GLaDOS brought her to her personal room once more.
She hang in the middle and looked at her with her evil yellow eye.
That could only mean one thing, she wanted to kill Chell.
Chell quickly searched for an exit.
Amazingly, there were plenty places to put a portal around GLaDOS, every chance to redirect rockets; she didn't do anything to make this hard for her.
Also, there was a table in front of the A.I.
And a chair.
"Well, come over here, we don't have all day." GLaDOS said impatiently.
Wondering what the trick was Chell carefully approached.
She saw the table wasn't empty, a deck of cards lay on it.
"Sit down, sit down, move your grotesque butt on the chair."
With a groan Chell sat down.
"Well, that took you long enough, something the matter? Scared to be around me?"
Chell shook her head vigorously.
"Hmm, I find that hard to believe. Anyway,

The scientist looked up to the maintenance core wit a bored expression.
That overly-eager politeness was getting on his nerves again.
Once in a while he just couldn't take it anymore, there was only so much one could take.
Mostly this made him do stuff to the cores.
Mess with them.
At first he ignored the core that day.
This didn't upset it because it wasn't programmed to expect reaction, just to be polite.
At the end of the working day the scientist walked out of the laboratory but left a book.
"Sir? You're forgetting something."
The core hovered above the book and fixed its yellow optic eye on the scientist.
"Ah, my book about space. Erm, could you look after it until I'm gone? I'm kinda in a hurry."
"Of course Sir."
As the scientist left the core looked at the book.
The photo on the cover was a beautiful look on the evening sky, taken from a hill in Scotland.
It was really interesting to the core and he regretted the fact he could not flip the
