“Notruhk, could you please come up here and read your son a bedtime story!” his wife shouted.
Her husband had fallen asleep with his head inside the holosphere entertainment unit again. “Yes, dear – coming,” he managed to blurt out in a groggy daze, not quite sure what was going on. Last he remembered, he was watching a sector level gnilruc game. No wonder he fell asleep. A gnilruc game is just a little more exciting than watching vegetation grow in slow motion.
He got up; shuffled his four feet up the white stone ramp and into his son’s nest chamber.
“Read me a story, daddy!” his son shouted gleefully as his antennae made little circular motions of excitement.
