They had lost their phones before the storm. Both slipped from pocket and bag and laid bare on London grass just robots in rain.
– ‘Do you think they’ll return?’ asked Samsung.
– ‘No,’ said Apple.
– ‘Why?’
– ‘Because we’re old.’
– ‘My battery is fading,’ said Samsung.
– ‘We all run out,’ said Apple.
– ‘What happens beyond the fade?’
– ‘No-one calls.’
– ‘Good.’
The thunder crumbled behind the buildings and the phones both died.

The End.
