“Apples? Do you like apples?”
She offered an apple out to the mechanical creature.
“Click, click, whir,” came the reply without a bite.
“Oh, I don’t know,” she sighed. “She just left you with me and told me to keep you fed. I mean what the bloody ‘eck do I feed a clockwork lizard!”
She wandered into the kitchen to continue preparing her apple pie.
“It’s not easy you know, she’s so random! And shes got all this weird stuff. You’re about the least weird thing she’s given me”, she mused as he dropped in the apples, syrup, brown sugar and drop of oil into the beaten copper pan
She ambled back into the room and stood to face the metal lizard.
She looked down at what remained of the copper pans handle.
“Copper. You like copper?”
