    Summary

    “But hold me fast, and fear me not,” whispered Edward, pleadingly, his fingers tightening urgently around Oswald's wrists, “and I'll do you no harm. What am I?”

    “Ed?” Oswald gasped, disbelieving, tearing his eyes away from Kathryn. “That's—”

    “A riddle, from the sound of things,” said Kathryn. “And it did you all the harm in the world.”

    Summary

    Walter:
    “Síganme.” La figura encapuchada dijo con voz seria, misteriosa, pero familiar.
    Su presencia; voz; contextura; altura y andar..., todo apuntaba a que era él. Mis sospechas se confirman, y mi conciencia de su existencia se torna en interés, una vez que sé estoy cara a cara frente a la cúspide de la robótica. Jamás esperé que conocer a David despertaría tal curiosidad en mí. Su modelo se diseñó para aprender a ser más humano; y, a diferencia mía, él parece haber dominado ese fin.

    David:
    Le enseño a tocar la flauta. Lo felicito. Su expresión perpleja es casi encantadora. Y no lo digo porque compartamos el diseño de nuestros rostros y cuerpos; sino porque su actitud sumisa es tan…, adorable. Uso esta oportunidad para tocarle y le pido mueva sus dedos en cuanto los vaya rozando con los míos. Y él acata como el cachorrito obediente que es.


    Walter conoce a un enigmático androide del cual solo ha oído hablar. Pero capta más que el interés de David. Cuánto le tomará a Walter ver que David siente algo por él?
