Example text

When we got back to the ship, he would decide that Paul had grown tired of waiting and had gone home, and he would send me home too. He had paid a very small rental for me and had gotten a lot of work done, so he would be satisfied. Hopeless -- but I kept thinking about it. I thought hard as we walked back to the ship, and two things about Captain Becker kept repeating themselves. A hard bargainer. A small rental. These two things were true. He was a hard bargainer, because he had gotten me for a very small rental.

Where's Captain Becker now? " "Yes. " Paul's first hunger gone, he began picking thoughtfully at his food. "Well," he said, "we got on this ship. I wonder what's next. But this is a real break. " "And when we get there -- " "It may be a little rough. Earth is a big planet. It's got more ports than any other. It depends on where we put down. " "Sure. Suppose Captain Becker takes this crate to one of the Arctic or Antarctic ports? Maybe he plans to pick up a cargo of pelts from one of the big polar fur farms.

Mr. Hennings paid a lot of money for me. " I turned to look at him. He had straightened up, and his face was grim. He looked even more like his father as he said, "I didn't jump ship and give up a trip to Earth because I wanted to stick around and admire the Ganymedian landscape. I did it because I refused to leave without my robot. I disobeyed my father because -- well, I did what I did, and I'm not going to run back to the spaceport like a whipped pup. We stay together. " Paul was a human. I was a robot.
