Valon was right, unfortunately.

The glowing ball flashed white for a moment, then changed colour to brown tinged with blue. “I am not a glowing ball!” it screeched. “I am a Value 1.0 Drone, you freak of nature!”
Navare, who shielded his eyes from the flash with his arm, sighed. “Amris, calm down. Kala, wasn’t it? That wasn’t very polite. It might be bloodthirsty, sardonic and annoying, but Amris is a person. Not a Shoot Barret.”

          “Both of you — cut it.” Navare’s voice brooked no argument even as he shot a confused look at Valon’s back. “You, Kala — apologise. Amris is not a ball of light. Amris — you too. That was impolite,... more

                Kala sighed again. "I guess have no choice. Even in our RC, I just kinda drape over the couch." She looked around. "Seriously, where'd Valon run off to? He's six and a half feet tall and pale as... more

                      “I’m from the Culture ,” Amris noted. It settled on the table, its fields turning rainbow-coloured. “‘Communicating by effector’...? Who is it communicating with…?” wondered Navare. “But I forget... more
