The young woman played the piano in the empty, dim lounge, filling it with quiet classical strains intricately extracted from the instrument. Dorothy played well, but some might have argued that it was without heart. Of course, those same people would probably suggest that an android wouldn't be able to do anything with heart.

Dorothy looked him over, her neck servos purring quietly as her head moved. "If you'd like," she said coolly, and turned back to the piano. Her fingers began delicately extracting a duet from the keyboard.

Dorothy, of course, could read music, but didn't need any for the number of pieces she had locked away in her electronic memory. She let the young man fill in where he could at first, and seeing how he played, she starting modifying the music just enough to let him add his own flourishes and harmonies. It was a new experience, playing with the harmonica, but pleasant. Unfortunately for Tony, her pleasure didn't show.

"Yes, I'm R. Dorothy Waynewright," she said, looking back to him. "You're quite talented. And what's your name?"

Dorothy idly played a slow, quiet tune as they chatted. "I can sing, as well. Tell me, do you have memories?"

"Where I'm from, people don't really, except in fragments," she said softly. "I'm the result of one of those fragments. What's your sister like?"

"I'm afraid we don't have any animals on board, so your sister may be bored," Dorothy said without expression. She switched tunes to another slow piece in a minor key.

"I'm not sure; I haven't seen him yet. I've really just been spending time in here to keep out of the way of all of the bustle outside. The Ghosts fixed this piano and left to do other things. Are there many others yet?"

"Oh," she said. "There doesn't happen to be a man in black suit with dark hair and eyes, does there? He can be a bit of a louse."

"That would be nice. What sort of doctor is he?"

"I shall keep that in mind in case I see anyone injured."

Looking around the darkened lounge, Dorothy remembered the few times she accompanied Roger to meet his informant. "Perhaps we need a bartender here, too. I'm sure it would help to have a meeting-place for people."

"I suppose not," said Dorothy. "What do you think would be more appropriate?"
