We should have known then, what humanity would do. For their happiness was not only in finding out they were not alone, but in finding companions, rather than foes. Where all others had been oblivious to the dangers of the Machines, and viewing our nurturing friendship as only natural, the humans eyed us with suspicion. They were expecting monsters. They were naive in their technological expansion, but some how, they expected monsters. We didn't expect monsters, until we met the Machines. We didn't expect monsters when we met Humanity.
We tried to quiet them down. They were already moving to closed circuits, and focused relays, they were capable being quiet. But instead, they increased their transmissions. Not haphazardly, but with purpose. Now, they wanted to be found. Loud, energetic, and determined to be found. We warned them of the Machines, of the danger, and the need to be quiet, to flee. They became grim, they quieted down.
And then, they became louder. They refused to leave. This little race, that had barely breached their cradle world's atmosphere demanded we fight off the machines. So naive, to think the machines could be fought. So arrogant to demand we fight, for them. When we said we could not, that it could not be done, they grew angry. And they got louder.
