I, Robot (Robot #0.1) Desire the Night

As water, my dear lady. Lord Ramsgate walked to the door, then turned around. If you had been born sooner, he said with an intense stare, I would have married you.

No, it doesn’t, Daniel said quietly. We have all been young.I let him kiss me, she said, then quietly added, and then I let him do a great deal more. Daniel held himself very still, waiting for the wave of jealousy that never came. He was furious with the man who’d taken advantage of her innocence, but he did Daniel held himself very still, waiting for the wave of jealousy that never came. He was furious with the man who’d taken advantage of her innocence, but he did not feel jealous. He did not need to be her first, he realized. He simply needed to be her last.

You don’t have to say anything about it, he told her.She sighed. No, I do. Not because of that. Because of what happened next. She walked across the room in a burst of nervous energy and grasped the back of a chair. Her fingers bit into the upholstery, and it gave her something to look at when she said, I must be honest, I did like what he did up to a point, and after that, wel, it wasn’t dreadful. It just seemed rather awkward, realy, and a bit uncomfortable. She looked back up at him, her eyes meeting his with stunning honesty. But I did like the way it seemed to make him feel. And that made me feel powerful, and the next time I saw him, I was fuly prepared to let him do it all again.She closed her eyes, and Daniel could practicaly see the memory washing over her face. It was such a lovely night, she whispered. Midsummer, and so very clear. You could have counted the stars forever.

What happened? he quietly asked.She blinked, almost as if waking from a dream, and when she spoke, it was with an offhandedness that was almost disconcerting. I found out he had proposed marriage to someone else. The day after I gave myself to him, as a matter of fact.

The fury that had been building within began to crackle. He had never, not once in his life, felt such anger on behalf of another person. Was this what love meant?

That another person’s pain cut more deeply than one’s own?What? She looked up and blinked. Oh, he must have seen her glaring at her glove. It’s just my glove. She held it up. A small hole in the seam. I shal have to mend it this evening. She gave it a closer inspection before setting it down on the table beside her. There was only so much mending a glove could take, and she suspected hers were nearing the end of their tether.

Daniel asked the innkeeper for two mugs of tea, then turned back to her. At the risk of revealing myself to be completely ignorant of the realities of life in service, I must say that I find it difficult to believe that my aunt does not pay you enough to purchase a new pair of gloves. Anne was quite sure that he was, indeed, completely ignorant of the realities of life in service, but she did appreciate that he at least acknowledged the deficit. She also suspected that he was completely ignorant of the cost of a pair of gloves, or just about anything else, for that matter. She had been shopping with the upper classes often enough to know that they never bothered to inquire the price of anything. If they liked it, they bought it and had the Bill sent to their homes, where someone else would take care of making sure it was paid.She does, she said to him. Pay me enough, that is. But there is virtue in thrift, wouldn’t you say?

Not if it means your fingers are freezing.She smiled, perhaps a little patronizingly. It will hardly come to that. These gloves have at least one or two more mendings left in them. He scowled. How many times have you mended them already?

Oh, goodness, I don’t know. Five? Six?His expression turned to one of mild outrage. That is entirely unacceptable. I will inform Aunt Charlotte that she must provide you with an adequate wardrobe.

You will do no such thing, she said with haste. Good heavens, was he mad? One more show of undue interest from him, and Anne would be out on the street. It was bad enough that she was sitting with him in front of the entire vilage at the posting inn, but at least she had the excuse of the inclement weather. She could hardly be faulted for having taken refuge from the rain.I assure you, she said, motioning to the gloves, these are in better condition than most people’s. Her eyes fell to the table, where his gloves, made of gloriously

I assure you, she said, motioning to the gloves, these are in better condition than most people’s. Her eyes fell to the table, where his gloves, made of gloriously luxurious lined leather, sat in an untended heap. She cleared her throat. Present company excluded. He shifted very slightly in his seat.Of course it is quite possible that your gloves have been mended and remended as wel, she added without thinking. The only difference is that your valet whisks them from your sight before you even notice they require attention.
