    Summary

    They should have had a nice, uneventful, survey after they beat the Corporate lawyers and got out of having to contract a SecUnit for this endeavor. But then the haunting started. It's been twenty-seven hours and several minutes since Gurathin first heard The Scratching. And—it's hard to say, exactly — probably close to the same amount of time he's gone completely without sleep now. You'd think he'd be pleased, sleeping in his own private quarters with the security cameras disa-bled. Something they could only do because there were no Corporate spy-bots here to object. Yet for the first time, Gurathin is beginning to regret their decision. Having some kind of monster burrowing straight under his bed would be a lot less scary if they had had an overarmed Security-bot they could have sent out to deal with it.
    If it’s even a worm, like Dr Ratthi suggested.
    The other option is… worse.

    Summary

    The kids were up to something.

    I knew it. All the other adults knew it. Even the older children noticed.

    I considered doing something about it, but then Amena pulled me aside and asked me to let them be. “It’s nothing bad,” she said with a smile. “It’s actually quite funny if you think about it.”

    So, I let them be.

    -------------
    Murderbot is well-loved by the kids it shares media with, so they make it a gift for when it stops by Preservation during a cargo run.
