First - Chapter 2 by suthnmehSo whats in a body? Isnt the soul whats real? What does the body have that makes it inhabitable for a soul? Souls cant inhabit rocks or chairs or clocks any more than they can inhabit a robot? But why not?

Its got more possibilities, we could say.

There aren´t many robots around since this is still a pretty poor district, let alone an advanced robot like this one.
But Mr.Shags, the grocery store owner, won a small lottery last month and has retired soon, leaving an expe
