[1.1] LyonsPride; Claptrap Difficulties [8.1]
In one day of struggling effort, the sprawling convoy travelled a whole 1.5 kilometres. After that a way was found to send the Wildtraps into a semiconscious state of controlled action. The result was that the next day they got halfway to the SteelCitadel and the day after that they reached the heavily altered-augmented fortress.
It was raining, clean cool water, as they settled in with the Wildtraps being returned to normal activity. So far it had gone from light, to moderate, but was getting steadily heavier.
The Wildtraps were surprisingly passive, at least in their own terms being 'semiwild'.
The Magnificent1234567 were sticking close to Sarah, much to her mixed feeling in the matter, but she did not push them away; this was partly due to the fact that she had a subduing influence on them. Duskin grinsmiled as Sleepitrap lay against her, perhaps thinking about how her heavy sniperifle could blow holes in that claptrap. Yet she made no efforts to push the robot away though her twin sister, Dawnin, kept giving her annoying looks. Both used identical type sniperifles with devastating effect.
Lordtrap hunkered down close to Sarah as she 2wayed with her father, PrimeElder Owen Lyons. The ElderCouncil had already agreed, in principle, to taking on the Ordertraps as a new SteelOrder. As for the Wildtraps, much thinking had to be done as best to handle them. Already rejected, as ideas, were scrapping them for recycling, using them as moving targets for shooting practice and sending them out to trigger off landmines.
Sarah shook her head in wonder even as her scientific genius, of a sister, walked in and stopped to watch the semiwild Wildtraps in action. Sella shook her head in wonder and then tapped out some notes on her PTC (palmtop computer). She had the kind of intense look, on her face, showing that she was interested enough to focus at least a short project on the single wheeled robots; she would work with the claptraps with out causing any of them harm.
