"You, Robot" Page 9.


After Stone leaves and night falls, Ada sleeps. You both emerge from hiding and sneak out of the house, into the city. You can see in the dark, and the city is amazing. Buildings stretch into the sky all around. You creep through the streets, avoiding all contact. Soon you come to a fenced warehouse. Alpha cuts an opening with a tool and leads you to the back door, opening it with another tool.

As you both enter, a steel shutter traps you in a cage. Alpha tries to escape, but an electric shock jolts it.

"I deduced your plans," says Stone over a loudspeaker, "and I knew you'd steal more parts to build robots. I wasn't expecting two, but no matter. Now we'll take you apart and find out what's wrong."
