“Eggbert, we have one; we don’t need another!”
“Don’t you see, Lou, we can learn so much by having two.” He looked down to the scene below.
“But, but they’re not the same. Well, not entirely. We could be gone by now, your obsession is going to get us caught! ”
“You didn’t study them as I did. Why have one without the other? We could find out so much more. I’m not talking about resell or trade value. I want to see how they grow together, I want to know what they would do for each other.” Eggbert would not take his hand off of the console. They must land to capture the other, and they must do it now.
“You’re right, Eggbert. I don’t understand; I’ll never understand your fascination with them.”
Eggbert smiled, the lines in his face almost cracking, and guided their craft to land in pursuit of the second human, who was, as Lou would never understand, a sibling to the first capture locked in their storeroom. To leave one and not take the other could possibly break one of them, and that would not do.
