SF Drabble #89 “Discretion”

I was originally built for high-risk environments: mining on Venus, Mercury, Io. Water reclamation on Europa, Ganymede. When my model became obsolescent I was repurposed for waste management duties on one of the L5 colonies. Now I’ve been given a personal service refit, and sold to a family.

It’s all the same to me. In my spare time I like to think about the shape of the universe. I figured out a way to go faster than light, but apparently humans don’t know it.

I’m certainly not telling them. I don’t want to end up shoveling antimatter on some ship…
