Liz Ono was looking out her window, and she was amazed at all the people walking down there, when her phone gave a small vibration. "Yes, Liz Ono here," she said and waited for a reply. It was her work buddy Bell Doz that phoned about today's assignment. You have to go to the museum, and meet a George Holt by ten thirty this morning. Okay said Liz and made herself ready. She went outside, and disconnected the cord that had charged her car batteries over the night. Then she drove down to the museum. The man was there waiting for her, and introduced himself as George Holt in a pleasant way.They went into the museum, where George wanted to make a statement about one of the exhibitions. It was Darwin, and George said that in his opinion there were too many robots made today, and they were placed in leading positions too often. Liz agreed, but told George that she had worked with robots quite often, and they had all done their work quickly and accurately. After the museum, George wanted to get lunch for the two, and Liz agreed, and the two had a pleasant lunch together. After the lunch Liz had to go back to the office, but they agreed on seeing each other later. When they met again later this afternoon, George asked if she would like to visit his home. Would you dare? he asked. Not only dare, said Liz. I would love to see your home. George had a beautiful home, and Liz couldn't stop staring. Your home is absolutely wonderful, she said. Yeah answered George, the only thing missing is a woman's touch and some small feet running around. Liz became deeply touched with what he said, and there the interesting part started. Would Liz be interested in children? And with the hate for robots George had expressed, does he has similar hate about other things in life?
You'll have to read the full version to find out who is the robot, or, are both of them mechanical beings well enough made to fool a human being?
