    "Alright Proxy~ You do that! I hope you like those two genres. And the books themselves of course." Kev said eagerly. "Do you do anything like swimming just for pleasure? Well, you are a robot so you can't swim.....but you know what I mean."

    "Ah, you mean other hobbies." He had to take a moment to contemplate it. "Well, I help Creator-Josephine with her work at Stark Corps," he said, tapping his fingers together. What else...?

    "I wouldn't know about recreational hobbies like swimming and cooking, but I do like crossword puzzles and sudoku," he admitted.

    "And what about you, Kev-Mak-Tarr?" he asked. "What hobbies do you have?"

    "I've never heard of Sudoku, but I have heard of crossword puzzles! Those are fun, yet confusing. I still have yet to complete a whole puzzle." Kev said. He had found some crossword puzzles in the Church, and wow, he surely sucked at them.

    "Hmm....well, I do some gardening~ If hanging around here is a hobby, then there's that too. I swim sometimes......huh, I should find some new hobbies...is sky-watching a hobby?"

    "I like all kinds of puzzles," the robot admitted. "I find some challenging, while others are more simple," he confessed.

    "Ah, gardening. Creator-Josephine mentioned giving you a plant once as a gift. You must be very close." His voice almost sounded wistful besides the mechanical overtones. "And I am not sure about hanging around and sky-watching, but perhaps," Proxy mused.

    "Simple ones are good as a nice break from challenging ones!" Kev said happily. He grinned mentally when Proxy mentioned the Aloe Vera plant Jo had given him. It was still planted in its spot in front of the church!~

    "Yeah....I guess we are really close~ Not as close as her and Zurg though." Kev snickered. "Somewhat amusing how close we are despite how we first met....our first meeting became a humiliating fight!! And then I let my temper get ahead of me and we actually had a fight!! I won too." Kev explained, snickering even more at the memories.

    "Yep, I REALLY need to get some new hobbies...but I have NO CLUE what to do."

    "Ah yes," Proxy said. "Zurg-Emperor." He fell silent, his single eyes flickering slightly.

    But he said nothing else on Zurg, instead, catching onto Kev's story. "You were not initially on good terms?" he asked curiously. "Could you tell me more about it?"

    Kev nodded, searching through his memory to remember the encounter.

    "Hmm......well, when we first met, we were trying to use Zurg as a shield. Neither of us wanted to give him up either.....what were we shielding ourselves against.....THINK it was OV, I THINK she was sucking Red's blood.....I THINK, not too sure. Anyways, neither of us were going to give up that spot, so there was one altercation. She went to leave, and I said "Farewell, male" or man, something masculine, and she got offended. I hadn't spent much time with her, OR Earth females in the first place, so I was still working out the sexual dimorphism, but I didn't act much better either."

    "She got angry and shoved her breasts in my face, and I kept calling her male, telling her she looked like a male. Like I said, I wasn't acting any better. She kept shoving them in my face, and hitting me with her wrench, and she even shoved her mating parts in my face! It was so disgusting!" Kev explained, shuddering a bit as he remembered. The HORROR. THE HOORRROOORRR.

    "After she left, I...somewhat overdramatically....vowed revenge. I found her in the wastelands and challenged her to a fight. It was a pretty even fight, but I beat her! And then red and Zurg took us to a hospital...and that lead to an even MORE insane encounter....but that's a story for a different day~" Kev finished, a little exhausted from remembering and retelling that memory. It seemed to be so far away! And yet it was only a few Earth months ago. Time sure flied by when you were having fun.

    It took several moments for Proxy to digest it all. There were still several things he did not quite comprehend, but he decided in the end that it was due to his absence of knowledge in certain areas. "How.... curious," he finally decided. "I had always known that Creator-Josephine was the rowdy type, but... I had never envisioned her to be quite this aggressive." What a story indeed! He would have to remember to ask her more about it.

    "Then how did you become friends?" he ventured. "Judging by your story, it seemed more like you were enemies than friends."

    Kev pondered that question for a few minutes. He wasn't really sure, he had actually wonder that himself a few times before.

    "...I am actually not sure...I guess the more we hung out, the more we just naturally clicked, and bonded......I think this uh...one experience with X did help to make her warm up to Zurg and myself though, because it was after that that she gave me the Aloe Vera plant!" Kev gushed. That Aloe Vera plant was STILL growing in front of the church.

    "An experience with Portal-X?" the robot asked. "What experience was that?"

    Kev fiddled with his hands a bit as he thought on that last question. He wasn't totally sure it was his place to tell Proxy, it was something personal to Jo and all. In the end, he figured he might as well tell him. The robot himself seemed close to Jo, and maybe Jo wouldn't mind.

    "Well........X kept making Jo's parents appear before her, and then die...he did it a number of times. Once, he made her father say "I love you" before making him exploded all over her. Naturally, she was pretty frightened by that. Zurg yelled at X to stop and leave her alone, and now that I think about it, Hanna also made her feel better afterwards."

    "....I see," Proxy mused. "Creator-Josephine had told me about the incident once, though she left out the finer details...."

    The robot actually felt slightly embarrassed at his intrusiveness now, having been chided for that aspect of his new personality once before. Gathering his books into a pile on the table, he tapped his fingers together again.

    "I think I should be on my way. It has gotten late, and Creator-Josephine will be worried. If you don't mind, that is," Proxy added quickly, not wanting to sound rude.

    Kev nodded and waved his hand at Proxy dismissively.

    "Oh, go ahead Proxy!~ I'll be heading back soon anyway, you go ahead, before Jo whips your robot bruuka~" Kev snickered, patting Proxy's arm before waving him off.

    "It was very nice meeting you." Proxy got up, carrying his books in one large arm. "I hope I run across you some other time."

    With a lumbering wave, he left, muttering, "Robot bruuka....?" to himself.

    It seemed like he still had a lot to learn!
