In this scene from FOR WOMEN ONLY, Khyff has just walked in the door after a month away working. Like many of us, he’s not the best at using tech, so when his electronic security system greets him, humor ensues.
“Welcome home, Mr. Antonello.”
Khyffen Antonello flinched at the disembodied android voice. He let out a frustrated sigh. “I am never going to get used to that. IdBot?”
The home security system pinged in response.
“Didn’t I ask you to call me Khyff?”
“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Would you like to know the dates of your requests at this time?”
“No, I would not. Just change the greeting. Call me Khyff.”
“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Greetings and welcome protocols are found in the home security system settings in the main system. Would you like to adjust them at this time?”
“No.” His shoulders sagged. “Remind me later. I’ve been away for a month, okay? I’m a little tired.”
“Yes, Mr. Antonello. A reminder has been scheduled.” Locks activated with an audible click, and a slight increase in pressure on his ears told Khyff the flat had been sealed. “Premises secure.”
Khyff dropped his travel bag. The long commute had left him stiff, and he rolled his shoulders. In the living area, he swiped two fingers across a table and frowned at the dust. The cleaning droids had been skimping again. Not every machine was as efficient as idBot.
“Might be a good thing.” Khyff stretched, working out kinks. “IdBot, play music.” The blare of hard rock made Khyff jump. He clamped both hands over his ears. Drums thundered and boomed behind a wailing voice he’d heard on tour every day for the past month as security liaison for Wind and Thunder. “End music.”
The silence made him groan with pleasure. “That’s better.” He lowered his hands. “IdBot, how did that music get on my setup?”
“Music added by roommate Senth Antonello.”
“My brother is back.”
That meant trouble.
“You could’ve warned me my brother was home when I got in the door.”
“Yes, Mr. Antonello. Greetings and welcome protocols are found in the home security system–”
“Never mind.” Khyff rubbed his temples.
