100 word story – monk

Jacob knew he wasn’t a good monk.
He’d flooded the garden in a clumsy accident and had messed up sorting the library’s books.
He now worked as the abbey’s guest monk. His one task was greeting every seeker with a smile, and directing them to the abbot.
The abbot… He was the best monk. He always gave perfect advice.
Jacob hated him.
If only the creators had made him a grade 1 robot, with all upgrades and golden skin.
Humans would come to him for counsel and nobody would dare threaten to scrap him.
He’d never have to smile again.
