Chapter 83 - Self Configuring Modular Robot[]


"Your dad's going to be glad to see you, Joshua, trust me." Yvonne Steiner-Davion reassured the young Marik boy. "Your treatments are going well."

"What about your friend?" he asked, "Your dying friend, is she getting better?" Joshua Marik wasn't exactly 'dim'.

"Lizzy's problem is...complicated. BUT!" she smiled, taking his hand, "The research we've been doing on her, has let us help you!"

He looked sad. "I'm sorry she's not getting better, then."

"We've got time." Yvonne assured him. He stopped on the path, and looked at the flowering plants.

"It's not fair." Joshua told her, "I'm fixed and your friend's still broken."

"Lizzie likes to remind me 'life isn't fair' and sometimes there aren't any easy answers." Yvonne confessed. In the distance, she could see the dropships coming to rest at the private port reserved for VIP's. "Your dad's almost here."

"Yeah!" Joshua grinned at her, his hair was growing back, now that the treatments made the chemotherapy and radiation treatments a thing of the past.

"Want to race me back inside?", Yvonne

"Still kinda tired." he said, "Will you walk with me back in?"

"Of course." she offered her arm, and he took it.

Yvonne's first true triumph walked with her back to the medical building. I beat cancer, beating Cholmann's syndrome is the next goal.

It was a hell of a lot better than her father's 'backup plan'. The boy recruited for that one, was now in one of the new 'gifted' classes at NAIS, learning to become a scientist in the engineering field, instead of a doppelganger. gotta remember to check in on Bryan later. she reminded herself. In the distance the official motorcade bearing the Captain-General of the Free Worlds League was just leaving the spaceport.
