Alpha and Beta both powered up and popped to life. They both went to go into the tent, but were greatly surprised to see a new machine.
The squid robot let out a strong yawn and stretched its arms out. It then moved upward, hovering a few feet above the ground. Edward and Melissa looked at it with fascination.
Said the machine excitedly.
"My name is Delta. I have been sent by the goddess of knowledge Pian Ya. My purpose is to assist in the care of little Melissa."
"Wait a minute. Pian Ya sent you?"
Edward asked, very skeptical.
"Yes, the one and only. And you must be Edward. I've heard many things about you."
Edward asked, now surprised.
"Oh most certainly. She went on and on and on about you while she created me. She sends her warmest regards."
Melissa turned to Edward.
"Oh can I keep him dad! Please!"
She said excitedly.
As much as he didn't trust the robot, Edward caved.
"Alright, fine. You can stay. But I'm keeping my eye on you."
"Oh splendid! You won't be disappointed, I promise."
