THE VIEW FROM PLANET 9
I promised George, the Laboratory's R7 Series Robot, that I would visit Planet 9 to see how his brothers were faring. Since completing their project for Peachy Keen Technologies, the Robots had become despondent, even suicidal.
Exiled, they had lost the human companionship they required to fulfil their remit. They no longer had any useful function to perform.
How could I tell George we were too late? The exiled R7s had self destructed before I got here. All that remained of them floated within the hydrogen and nitrogen particles that make up the atmosphere of this beautiful, but lonely planet.
Forgive me, Doug and Fictioneers, my computer met with a terrible catastrophe (marble steps in Athens) and I am trying to use my phone. I could not figure out how to upload your inspiring photo, but I had this one in my phone , so had to substitute. I also can't answer any comments, but they are always welcome.
