“Alright, say it back to me.”
“Stay in Crop Co, no going anywhere I’m not allowed, no bothering the other employees, no breaking things, no going into the fusion labs.”
“... Be nice?”
Ima let out a small sigh. She was almost afraid to relay her earlier instructions just in case that gave the younger android the idea to break said rules in the first place. After a moment to consider her options, she decided to let it go, giving the smaller bot a gentle pat on their shoulder.
“Good! As long as you are well behaved I think this will be just fine!” After their previous lone encounter with Bloom and the recent resurgence of Van-80, both he and Ima thought it was time to give little Zer0 a chance to go out more on their own. This was more than even their actual mother ever gave them. According to them, said parent had never let the bot out of her sight. She kept a watchful eye on them at all times. Being the motherly android she was, Ima thought that since they had proven themselves trustworthy, it would be perfectly fine to let them have some freedom. Of course, she had sat them down in her office to go over some ground rules.
With those under their belt, Zer0 happily bounded from the office, hopping over to the elevators in record time. Finally, they would get the chance to see all of Crop Co. Or rather, most of it. The fusion labs were off-limits, and the plexroid garage was just dangerous. But that still left an entire sky-scrapers’ worth of corporation to explore. Unfortunately, most of it was offices. Cubicles, board rooms, a few projector rooms. Those were fun, but they were busy having serious adult meetings in there. Some of the testing rooms were cool. Zer0 watched in amazement whenever they reached the Plexbit testing labs. Watching the cute little robots blip to life made them wish they had one as a pet. They would have gone in to ask about taking one, but with the rules laid down by Ima and their shyness, the once prideful android was scared they would be bothering them.
All in all, it was a slow roller coaster with moments of excitement. It didn’t take long for them to feel horribly out of place though. There was no one around their own age. A little downtrodden, Zer0 made their way down to the main lobby, taking a seat in the luxurious waiting room cough, kicking their feet idly in the air. Crop Co was just too much to explore all at once. Especially on their own. It was clear they were going to need a helping hand.
