Nikala squinted, making sure the beam was straight. It was important to be certain everything lined up properly. It’s nice, she mused as she assembled the walking assembly and started to weld the first connection, to be able to use your schooling for something. While others were putting up fancy woodwork upstairs, she was building hydraulics in the sub-basement. Next would come the sub-atomic particle accelerator. It would work as a low-functioning brain, thus making the inn partially self-aware. If danger ever threatened the inn again, it would be able to stand up and walk to safety on long stork-like legs. Nikala already had the route and temporary landing spot programmed. Just a couple more days and all would be complete – the world’s first bionic inn. What could possibly go wrong?
