The hungry ones want in…..
It’s 9012, and inside the life-sustaining bio-dome, human men have been extinct for thousands of years. The women have replaced them with sexy robotic male companions, programmed to cook, clean, and satisfy their owners’ most intimate personal requirements.
But there are more creatures left alive outside than anyone ever thought possible.
And some of them want to come in.
A long workbench dominated the low-ceilinged area, and Amy was leaning over it, melting the serial number off a shoulder blade.
"Oh hell," said Tina, "How are you going to get the skin back on that?"
Amy lifted her visor. "There's a patch of skin growing in that tank over there." She nodded toward the corner. "It should take. He's not for show anyway, he's being sold to one of the restaurants."
Tina nodded. The restaurants were usually staffed with underground-market bots. While a handsome Hypton served the main course, it was often prepared behind the scenes by a stripped-down man-bot who'd had his face removed and his numbers melted away to avoid identification.
"I saw something interesting today," said Tina.
"Mmm?" Tina watched as Amy smoothed the melted area where the serial number had been. Serial chips on the newer Hyptons were holographically embedded, and it wouldn't be long before they'd have to come up with new procedures for erasing them.
"A really different bot. Short. Hairy."
"I'm thinking no. Maybe he's an antique?"
"Can you get him?"
"He belongs to a friend."
"No, then." Amy had a rule about not stealing from people you knew.
"She might sell him. For less than he's worth, I mean. She doesn't like him."
"Find out what he is first. I'll take him if there's a profit in it. I do have some clients with unusual tastes."
"I think he's cute."
"Yeah. I mean, he's not hideous or anything. He's just not perfect."
Amy put down the tool she'd been using to smooth out the metal, and pulled an envelope from the pocket of her apron. "Now I'm really curious."
Tina reached out and took the envelope. "She's taking him to the dealership tomorrow. I'm meeting her there. If I can get him alone, I'll try to scan him."
"Good. Pay attention to any new security features they mention. And try to get a tour of the assembly area."
Tina stuffed the envelope down into her boot and let herself out. She didn't need to count it; Amy always paid what they'd agreed on.
She headed home to start going through her clothes. She needed to find something decent to wear to Hypton, Inc. with Lyssa tomorrow.
She needed to look like she belonged there.
I am the author of the futuristic thriller Hypton 14, and I'm writing the sequel next.
