"What did he want to talk to you about?" Alex demanded when the android returned.
"Your brother gave me a new entry for handling a social situation," she responded.
"Roger?" he frowned. "I thought my father wanted to speak to you."
"I think it was arranged for your brother to do it because the problem involved him," she explained.
"Problem? What problem?" he snapped impatiently.
"You noticed that your brother was avoiding me, didn't you?" her voice was soft, as always. "I was unsure of the appropriate method to handle the situation. He gave me a new way to do it."
"Really," Alex's interest was piqued. "And what was that?"
"Leave him alone," she said simply.
Alex laughed out loud. He saw some potential for mischief here that he simply could not pass up. "I want you to pay extra attention to my brother Roger. Do you understand?"
"Yes," she filed the command. "What sort of attention do you want me to give him?"
"I want you to flirt with him," he said. "I want you to follow him around and make puppy eyes at him. The more he avoids you, the more I want you to pursue him. Do you understand?"
A trace of a frown crossed her face, then her expression smoothed. "I understand," she said obediently. "When do you want me to begin?"
Alex laughed again, tugging at the zipper of her dress and sliding it from her shoulders. "Whenever you're not busy with me."
