"He could also scrap you with a snap of his fingers or the press of a button." Stephen said with a sigh. "Even though you're a pain in my tail sometimes, I'd like to prevent that."

"I am no android." Killswitch said, laying down and deciding to ignore the pain in the tail comment. "While he could do as you say, it would not occur without loss of life or limb on his part."

"My processor indicates I would have a 85% chance of victory." He said, following. "My programming sets the acceptable risk at 60%."

"You honestly believe that he wouldn't put some failsafe or multiple in you?" Stephen asked. "You we're...built very specifically." He said as he sat down and kicked his feet up.

"It is possible." Killswitch said, laying down under Stephen's propped up legs. "Though there is no need to find out as of yet."

"Exactly my point." Stephen said as he grabbed a drink from the nearby mini refrigerator. He sipped it as he popped open a book. "Don't wanna bet your life on making the boss man angry.

"Unless it becomes necessary." Killswitch pointed out. "At which point it is better to be prepared."

"At no juncture is making Mr. Logan unhappy 'necessary'." Stephen said as he flipped through the pages of his book. "It's unwise...and very unhealthy."

"Maybe, maybe not." Killswitch said, reading the spine of the book Stephen was reading. "Jesse dies." He didnt seem to know about warning for spoilers.

Stephen sighed and set the book down. "Great..." he annoyingly said. "That took the fun outta it..." he looked at the book again before picking it back up. "Well... I can at least find out how...just watch some television or something. We got plenty of time..."

"Kris shoots her." He said, again ruining it. He initiated an uplink to the TV, turning it on, and started flipping through channels.

Stephen grumbled and tossed the book aside. "Well that ruins that for me..." he unhappily said with a sigh. "Whatcha watching? Hope it's not more of that strange show you like...creeps me out a bit."

Killswitch shot a not-so-nice look at Stephen and continued flipping through the channels, eventuallu stopping on said show.

Gruwel groaned as he, with a great deal of willpower, opened his eyes to look at his alarm clock. His eyes widened as he read the date. "Crap..." He muttered, sitting up. He was a day late on one of his pieces, a stainless steel desk being made for a particularly wealthy client, who was known for having a rather short temper. He got out of bed, and, not even bothering to put something on over his boxer shorts, shuffled out of his bedroom. He walked into his kitchen, and his coffee machine automatically began to prepare a cup of coffee. He sat down at the counter, and pulled his small, sleek laptop in front of him, sleepily. He stared at the screen, and began lazily typing out a message to the client, apologizing for the delay, and lying that his machines had unexpectedly broken down, and he had to spend a few days working to repair it.

A few other messages for small time orders popped up, nothing too complex but reasonable pay.

Gruwel eyed these lazily. A lot of these, he could literally do in a day. The most complex ones he could finish in a week of two. He eventually send the three best offers messages with the estimated time of completion. All the rest, he sent messages saying that he'd get back to them when he could spare time. He got up from his seat, and went to retrieve his coffee. Once he did this, he pulled up the designs for the desk the client had asked for. He closed his laptop, and, with it under his arm, stepped out his front door. His house was about 20 miles from the nearest city, and it was incredibly rare for him to get visitors. His home, which was rather large, was about a mile and a half into the forest, so it took a few minutes for him to drive down the path and out onto the highway. Behind his house was a small warehouse, where he kept his machines in. He sat out on his porch for a while, looking lazily down the path, a small plastic tube that emerged from his mask set in the cup of coffee, which he was drinking through said tube. Every now and then, he glanced down at the laptop, expecting a message from his client.

No email came from that perticular client, no angry demands or anything. Everything seemed peaceful in that regard, he even got a few messages thanking him for accepting the requests as well as a few less than enthusiastic ones that were told to wait. Given the reputation of the client either something was holding him up, or he was in a very rare good mood.

Gruwel finished his coffee, a bit surprised by the lack of a message, and got up, leaving the cup outside, and, with his laptop under his arm, went back inside, and got dressed. A few minutes later, still holding his laptop, he walked out the back entrance of the house, and into the warehouse. He approached one of the larger machines, which appeared to be a large, maybe ten foot tall and 15 foot wide dome, made out of tungsten. On the side, a blue screen was mounted, with what seemed to be a projector under it. Gruwel pulled a hatch on the side of the dome open, and glanced around inside, looking at various mechanical arms and other devices. He shut the hatch, and locked it, then walked over to the screen. After pressing a few buttons, a loud whirring emerged from the dome, and the screen flickered a bit before showing the inside of it. The projector created a small hologram, showing a three dimensional model of the desk, except without any of the finer details. Gruwel set his laptop down on a table a good ten feet off to the side, and tapped the screen a few times. Then, as the machines inside the dome were creating this block of steel, he sat down on the table, and kinda just waited.

Killswitch let out a sort of chuckle and laid his head down on his forepaws, only partially watching the show. "It is interesting to see what I should've been."

Other than the occasional refill, the plan worked rather well. The desk came out fine from the raw manufacturing. The lack of any messages from the client that demanding was slightly disconcerting, but given that it was to be delivered to the clients office it wouldn't be too hard to sort out.

Stephen smiled a bit. "Shoulda, woulda, coulda, all the same thing. I'm kinda interested in how all this is working out actually." He suddenly lost that joy as he remembered what was being watched. "I swear, if they show those mating rituals again I'm taking the screen with me when I leave the room." how he said it implying that something like that happened before.

Gruwel walked across the warehouse, and picked took a large metal platform off the wall. He set it down outside the hatch, and opened it. He reached inside, and pulled out a small metal arm with a long black tube on the end. He pointed the arm at the platform, and walked over to press a button on the screen. When he did so, a bright blue light shone down on the platform, and the desk materialized onto it. Once the light ceased, he folded the mechanical arm back down into it's place, and shut the hatch. He bent over, and pressed a button on the side of the platform, and it began to emit a hum, and finally, after a few seconds of waiting, began to hover an inch or two from the ground. Gruwel pushed the block of steel much more easily now than he would've been able to previously. He let the desk stop on the other side of the warehouse, with two tables to either side of it. On each of the tables, there were tools like blowtorches and laser saws. He allowed the platform to lower back to the ground, and prepared to begin work on the table.

Killswitch sighed, giving the closest thing to emotion he had shown in a while. "If I had a mate, it wouldn't be a problem."
