Freefall 2121

Off to see the Mayor

Why does the Mayor worry you so much?

She's the alpha female. To have children, I need to be the alpha.

I can't beat her. If I ever want to be a mom, I need to be where she isn't.

You're always doing things the hard way.

Wait until another Bowman's Wolf has puppies, grab one you like, and run!

Maybe I shouldn't be discussing parenthood with a species that gains its family by kidnapping.

kidnapping = похищение людей.

We've got about an hour before the Mayor gets here. How do you like your eggs?

We broke in early so you could eat?

We certainly didn't do it so we could watch television. The Mayor doesn't subscribe to any premium channels.

Kiss the burglar chef.

I am going straight to doggy Hell.

Then you need a good breakfast. It's the most important stolen meal of the day.

It's a big “No!” to take human food without permission.

Ah, but carnivorous crewmembers are supposed to follow orders from their highly edible Captain.

However, if you don't want it…

Rrrr!

Yours enough to growl over, yours enough to eat. Dig in.

One day my brain will be able to take my body out in public without it embarrassing us.

Florence, it's okay to leave a calling card at the scene of the crime, but it should say something like “The Phantom” or “The Creeping Shadow”, not I.O.U.

IOU = I Owe You, FYI

I can hear the Mayor outside. What's the plan?

Improvise.

Improvise? Is there a Plan B?

Yes. If Plan A doesn't work, run! Now hold your arm up like this.

We're doomed.

Nonsense. Improvise is one of the few battle plans that survives contact with the enemy.

I'm so happy! I knew this day would come.

Can't… breathe.

He is dead, isn't he? That sqid has more lives than a bag full of cloned cats.

Let me wave a wallet under his nose.

Nope, only stunned.

Don't be upset. You did very well for a first attempt.

Still can't breathe.

Have the police take Sam to the opposite side of the planet. We're on the outside. Use your imagination.

You still look terrified. Okay, Direct Order. You like me. You trust me. You want to make me happy. End Order.

Better now?

Emotionally, much better. Intellectually, I think I'm screaming.

Вот ведь гнида. (Варг)

Time for my breakfast. I expect you'll want to be on your way.

Well, there is one more thing.

I believe Ecosystems Unlimited is about to release a patch that will severely affect the robots ability to function autonomously.

This could affect the stability of the entire colony.

Look, if you want to stay for breakfast, just say so.

I'll take care of breakfast. My owner's mom was from Italy. She wanted her daughter to be able to cook the old fashioned way, no microwaves or mixes.

Daughter? She considered you family?

Absolutely. And while I use the term “owner” to avoid confusion, Scott always considered me to be his little sister.

That can't have worked out well.

He did have some problems. Mainly his friends who had little sisters that weren't talking wolves kept wanting to trade.
