Formula to be a winner

In a very big city where people came and went with a very fast pace of life, lived Roberth, an 18 year old young man who since childhood had dreamed of being a famous soccer player and even participate in competitions worldwide. He only had one problem to achieve his dreams: he was born with a health problem that prevented him from walking. His appearance and physical condition could prevent him from achieving his goal. This could be an obstacle for anyone, but not for Roberth who had recently found a way to fulfill his dreams.

Roberth was very intelligent, that made him earn money, that money he was going to use it to accomplish his goal, his physical appearance was not going to prevent him, his mind was determined and he would become a winner, in it were plays, passes and strategies to win a soccer game. He bought an intelligent robot that was designed to play soccer, for months he learned to handle it, he got to know its design and even added new functions so that it would adapt better to what he wanted.

After a year Roberth knew his robot perfectly, the plays he made were amazing, but they were only made in the backyard of his house, only his mother from the kitchen window saw the amazing way Roberth had to handle that robot perfectly, no doubt he would go far if he set his mind to it.

Other months passed and finally the competition that Roberth had waited so long for arrived, the robotic soccer competition, although for the moment it was only national, if he won he had the opportunity to go to the world competition and both he and Patrick (as he called his robots) were ready and trained for that day. It would be in a week and as a prize they would give a large sum of money in addition, expenses paid for him and a companion to go to the world robotic soccer.

The big day arrived and his mother had rented a van to take Roberth and his robot to the competition. This competition was not like a normal soccer game, the robots had to face each other one by one, the first one to score a goal was the winner and so many opponents were discarded for Roberth. In the end the strongest was left but Roberth managed to beat him with his game strategies and Patrick's speed. He felt proud, he could not believe it, he had won the national championship.

When it was time to receive the award, many were surprised by his appearance, until now they had only seen Patrick in the competition, but now they saw the person behind Patrick and were amazed. Instead of regretting the life he had to live, Roberth created for him a wonderful life fulfilling his dreams, they had a small change but in the end he fulfilled the same goal, to feel happy in life.

Roberth was also the winner in the world robotic soccer competition, all that training had paid off, he and his robots were the best in the world. For several days everyone was talking about it, even outside his house there were many reporters day and night wanting to interview him. Roberth gave several interviews but they were still there. A coach of a very prestigious soccer team in his country went over every move of the robot and every pass for days, he realized that the person handling that robot was a genius.

This coach decided to contact Roberth, after an interview Roberth received a contract for five years very well paid where both Patrick and he were going to teach many techniques to the players, he was going to be in charge of the strategies and plays for the team to be the best in the world. After winning the championship with Patrick, Roberth already felt that he had fulfilled his dream, but what happened to him with this contract surpassed the limits of what he had dreamed of, the happiness he felt overflowed.

He couldn't wait to get home to call his mother who had supported him so much to tell her the good news, she jumped for joy and her tears came out like waterfalls. When Roberth hung up the call his mother felt proud, her son did not get carried away by the way he looked but did something more important, he focused on fulfilling his dreams, from the moment he did not let his appearance limit him he became a winner.

Welcome to the Inkwell, @nathy33. You begin your creative adventure with us very well. This is not just a feel-good story, this is a good story. You uplift us with a character who goes beyond expectations, and yet the narrative is realistic. You make it real, believable. What a great idea. A robot competition, where the design is so brilliant it can be applied to human interaction. AI meets a human.

Thank you for sharing this imaginative story with us, @nathy33. Be sure to check out our rules, especially those on violence (it does not seem you are inclined to write violent stories, though). We appreciate that you support other writers in the community with your comments.

Hi Nathy, thanks for sharing your story. I like that you include both the MC's appearance, his avatar's appearance, and then their appearance at the national and international tournaments.

with regards to suggestions I find it difficult as I would have no hope of writing a story in a language other than my own. Maybe I can suggest that, while this is a feel good story, there may have been opportunity to build in a little more conflict in one of the matches that the MC has to work to overcome.

thanks again
