La Chanson de l'Observation
by Bernard Cox
Node AR1x40 lives his life on Earth as human Javier Flores, observing and reporting on human behavior as part of The Commonality’s sociological study. When he meets Theo Zedek, a pastry chef and owner of the La Chanson Cafe, Node AR1x40 violates the main parameter of the experiment—he falls in love. And their love may ruin far more than his career.
