the hidden entrance to the Librare...

///

Seeing no point in delaying its quest to find and enter the Librare, a rumored repository of android tech, mech, and baubles irresistible to a treasure hunter like itself, tritianSix quickly recalibrated several internal modules.  Then, it set three waypoints on the 'map, as well as coding a couple of sentry subroutines, which would stay on high alert, scanning the data from several sensor arrays.

The only thing left to do was put one foot in front of the other, tritianSix 'thought, as it stepped firmly toward the first waypoint, a fair distance to the north-west.  Although not due for sleep simulation and system maintenance for several days, the little android decided to take care of both at the waypoint, if shelter or cover could be found that would decrease the chances of any more unpleasantness.

Remembering a short story it had been told by a fellow 'droid, tritianSix thought about what smugness would feel like, if a 'droid had the capability to experience emotions.  It decided that it would enjoy smugness if, one day, an upgrade was invented that would interface with his existing, somewhat low-tech emotion simulation module...

The End
