Chapter 1: Preface

All characters in this story are fictitious. Any similarity to persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

Chapter 2: Beth in the Year 2021

The year was 2021. Beth was happier than she had ever been in her life. She had been married for fourteen years to a man who was more interested in other women than herself. It had been a sad and frustrating time for her and she was relieved that the divorce was final.

Things were different now. Technology had progressed by leaps and bounds. One of the unexpected spinoffs of computer development and space research was the creation of androids. They were an extension of the early robots used in the manufacture of autos and appliances. These early manufacturing robots did not remotely resemble humans. Their design was a case of form following function.
