Chapter 20

The Party (Part 4)

So far, the night was going well. Most people avoided her, and those that didn’t were at least civil about it. Then there was this robot, Galvex. He’d latched on to her for the last hour, just watching her.

“You‘re different from the rest.” he said finally, at the exact moment that Shaela had a large chunk of Granbok meat in her mouth.

“Hmm…” She said as she swallowed the last bit of piping hot meat. “What gave it away?”

The sarcasm wasn’t lost on Galvex, “Well if you must know it’s the way you eat Granbok. With your hands, it’s so… Adorable!”

“Um… Thanks, I think”

“That, and you’re not an idiot.”

Shaela spat out a mouthful of food and roared with laughter. “I’m glad you think so.”

“Can I keep you?”

Shaela just laughed once more and flashed Galvex a radiant smile. “Sure thing Galvy, sure thing.”

“I’ll hold you to that.”
