Freefall 2691

You look tired.

It's been a busy couple of days. I think I've run my reserves past empty.

Well, give me a couple moments and I'll get a bed made up for you.

Or you can skip the wait and curl up in the laundry basket.

Don't you want a bed?

Fine here. Smells like you. Good night.

When you have a canine for a guest, it's not hard to be a good host.

There you are, Beekay. Wake up. We need you out of the guest room.

Wurf? Sniff? Sniff!

Sorry, Captain. He's usually such a well behaved little dog.

That's not a dog! That's a fluffy piranha on legs!

I'll keep Beekay in my room. He won't bother you again.

I'm still locking the door. You're sure he can't get into the air vents?

I'm sure. Good night, Captain.

Good night.

I'm finally on the cusp of greatness. I don't want my obituary to read “Saved the world and was then eaten by a small dog.”

Our guests are tucked in for the night. Time for us to get to bed as well.

Quite the day. People still aren't sure on which way we should go with the robots.

I wonder what the history books will list as the defining event for humanity to have lived through? The threat of nuclear war or artificial intelligence?

Morning, Beekay. You want to go out, don't you?

If everyone was as enthusiastic as you in spreading biological material around, we'd have this planet terraformed in no time.

Okay, let's slow down and try this again. First, I'm a guest in this house. Second, a proper lady does not rush into the kitchen at the sound of kibble hitting the bowl.

Have to watch that. When I'm tired, I don't always act properly. It takes effort to act human.

Though my friends tell me even humans have to expend effort to act human, so I'm in good company.

Good morning.

Morning. Did you sleep all right in the laundry basket?

I slept very well. I don't smell like old laundry, do I?

No, no. You smell fine.

I'm cheating a bit. Humans won't admit it, but on an individual level, they like being around things that smell like them.

Coffee?

Not quite. It's something Dvorak sent over for you.

He said it's canine safe. No theobromine. No caffeine.

It smells like a frightened rabbit.

That does look really effective. However, I have too much invested in coffee to switch over now.
