For the time being though, while his assistant’s schedule was crammed up with meetings and administrative bores, Timothy was taking a break from it all. He was looking forward to relaxing with his family, his loved ones. He was keeping himself busy with a whole other series of events that mattered to him just as much as his professional duties – getting everything ready on the home front to celebrate Christmas and New Years the way it deserved to be. With lots of love, lots of food and a touch of liquor.
His sister had arrived at the family lake house earlier that day. She had given him the cold eye for a second or two – she firmly opposed some of his late career choices, especially the domestic release of his brand new creation. She was persuaded this would lead to a disaster of some form or another. Despite their opposite views, she loved her brother so much she could not resist him and his angelic traits. Predictably, she gave him a tender hug a moment later.
Timothy felt safe around his family. It was a no nonsense territory, where everybody was free to speak their minds and voice their concerns whatever those could be. They had always been there for each other whenever it mattered. Nothing was more precious to him than his bubble of love and unconditional support. That was another reason why he was so keen on creating able humanoids. He wanted to offer the same kind of resting and gathering he was currently enjoying to all of mankind.
