Voyage to My Mom"I can't take this anymore," she choked out as she collapsed on the couch. Her robot dog, Sparky, came up to her, nudging her leg with its nose. Syldia wiped her tears on the pillow and sat up, brushing her brown hair out of her face. "I wish Mom was here. She'd be able to help me."
Syldia was seventeen when her mother died in a devastating accident, and even though it had been a year, she still felt the loss every day. Some days were better than others, but today was worse than usual. As far as she was concerned, no kinder being had ever lived on the planet, or ever would again. She lived alone with her father, who was still at work, and wouldn't be home for a couple of hours.

"Sparky, do you want to go on a walk?" The mechanical canine nodded, and gave a recorded bark. Syldia wiped her eyes again, and got herself a glass of water.
Syldia wandered with Sparky to the park. The chains of the swings creaked as they went back and forth, and something went crunch un

Michael Bruce looked around the room at the party he'd hosted to celebrate the coming of the daughter of one of his biggest competitors. He didn't know her business in the United States, just that she'd booked a penthouse in Gale City, and had agreed to come to the shindig. He hoped to make a favorable first impression, especially if she was in town to do some business. It was too early for her to be fashionably late, but the other guests had arrived, and seemed to be enjoying themselves. Melody and Ravenswood were laughing at some joke with another couple in the corner.
When the mid-twenties beauty walked in, she became the Ch
