The Robofox and the Lithium Accumulator


« Tiberius » « What?! » « Would you please tell me a story? » « A story? But I was asleep! » « Come on, just one story and then I’ll go to sleep and won’t bother you again » « Tell a robomouse a story to make it sleep? If my friends knew about this they’d think I’ve gone mad! All right, come on up. But be quiet, or you’ll wake everybody up » BoSMi backed up a bit and, making the slightest noise, jumped on Tiberius’s bed. « What kind of story should I read to you? » « How should I know? A nice one, with a happy ending » answered BoSMi, making itself comfortable amongst the folds of the quilt.

« Are Aesop’s fables ok with you? » said Tiberius, rummaging through the books on his bedside table. « I don’t know any of Aesop’s fables. I know Haexop’s ones » « Haexop? Such as? » « Such as “The Robofox and the Lithium Accumulator”. Do you know it? » « No » smiled Tiberius. « But I think I know where this is going. Go on, tell me! »

The robomouse started whispering: « A robofox with flat batteries saw a lithium accumulator which had just been recharged. It tried to stick it in her battery slot, but the socket was different, it wouldn’t connect: “Old technological rubbish. It would have run out of power immediately anyway!”said the robofox to itself, and off it went »

« Excellent! You’re very good at telling stories » Tiberius smiled. « I know, but you were supposed to be the one telling me a story to make me go to sleep» « You’re right, but tell me another one, come on... » BoSMi agreed: « All right, all right. I’ll tell you just one more. I can’t remember anything about myself, but have tons of fables stored in my memory... let’s look in the files... here it is, you might like this one: “Digisnow and the Seven Robodwarfs” » « Awesome! » exclaimed Tiberius, amused. « Do tell, do tell... » « So... once upon a time... » BoSMi had yet to begin the fable but Tiberius was already sound asleep. That day’s excitement had clearly worn him out. « Tiberius... Tiberius... Tibe! » whispered BoSMi. « Bah, he fell asleep. All right, then » The robomouse bit on the quilt and covered Tiberius up, then moved towards the end of the bed, crouched down and closed its mechatronic eyes, satisfied.
