The ballad of Shannon Gogarsneacht

Shannon Gogarsneacht always gets what she wants.

‘Relinquish your riches‘, ordered the robot.

Shannon was furious. Not just at being mugged by a robot. She was also four feet tall.

Which came as a disappointment.

And I got the blame.

‘I’ll leave this story unless ya triple my height’, she’d threatened.

‘And make me out of steel’, she continued, ‘with rockets that can shoot from my eyes. And chainsaws for teeth. And the ability fuse hydrogen.’

There was nothing else for it. Shannon is a very pushy woman. The robot (for the brief remainder of its existence) knew that too.
