Weekend Writing Prompt #108 – Mercurial

She’d never seen a robot cry. Their inability to express human emotion had made them distinct. Unflawed and incorruptible. But mercurial tears stained his cheeks and his voice broke her stunned silence.

“Is this what sadness looks like?”

I’m not much of a sci-fi fan, but the idea of robots was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the word ‘mercurial’. Thanks to Sammiscribbles for a great prompt; it wasn’t easy shaving down the words to the exact limit but it was fun! Happy writing and I hope you’re all having a great weekend 🌺.
