We’ve got Jack, a detective with a bit of a squicky feeling towards androids, in an interrogation room with Adelyn, a state of the art android, who is under suspicion of murder. Moments before this snippet, Jack received the passcode to allow Adelyn to divulge whatever information he asks. Here’s his reaction. And hers.
“I have the code,” Jack wheedled. Adelyn blinked at him. His smile soured at her lack of response. “What do I do with it? Stick it somewhere?”
“As you and several of your officers have already noted, I have no ports. There is nowhere appropriate for you to stick that, detective.”
Jack felt his face heat. He scratched his shaved head. “Do I just say it?”
“That will suffice.”
Now, we’re finally getting somewhere. What’s she got to say to Jack? Well, we’ll see next week where, universe willing, I do just as well as I did this week with remembering. And scheduling.
