Return to Miss Broulliard with breakfast. I inquire as to which of her NAP bio-suits she would like to wear. She requests pearl. I lay this out on the aqueous mattress and complete a systems check on the bioware sensing of the suit. Diaphoresis sensors are not functioning properly. Diagnostic reveals that axillary nodes require replacement.
Replacement nodes are replicated and replaced while Miss Broulliard stretches and does yoga routine. Observe.
Prepare steam bath for Miss Broulliard.
Towel Miss Broulliard and help her into her bio-suit.
System check for mag shuttle. No delays this morning.
Miss Broulliard asked about the success of Chloe’s trip to the Luminous Implants store with me on 07.10.2159. I told her that Chloe was shy at first but the Sales ESS put her at ease and the installation took only a few minutes. Chloe was surprise because it didn’t hurt. Later that day we practices the hand gestures from the infusion program. Chloe knew all the child programs. I told her she would be very proud.
Miss Broulliard enters Chloe’s bedroom and wakes Chloe. They talk about Chloe’s trip to the Luminous Implants store. Chloe shows Miss Broulliard her new implants. They talk for several minutes. Chloe tells Miss Broulliard that I replaced the eye on Mr. Hall the teddy bear. Miss Broulliard and Chloe agree that Marie-D is, “the best”.
System check for mag shuttle. An accident is reported at the Old Bailey Station and there is an 8 minute delay on the Charter Road Line. Miss Broulliard mumbles, “Another suicide,” and says she should get started for Police Headquarters because of the delay.
Miss Broulliard leaves for work.
I inquire as to what Chloe would like for breakfast.
