Capítulo 5: The cat and the soldiercopyright protection4PENANAKMpH2jNKwB

Hello friends, in case you don't remember, a girl with so few clothes named Hailey had just discovered that I, Vladimir, come from the past. The friend in question surrounds me and looks at me with eyes like plates.copyright protection4PENANAqqwlQPW0kg

“Look, if you keep looking at me like that, I'm gonna have to charge you.”copyright protection4PENANAFqSra8x6tw

“Oh, I'm sorry, but this is so amazing.”copyright protection4PENANASdihVlAI57

“Don't worry, by the way, do you have any more sandwiches? I'm starving to death.”copyright protection4PENANAkwxRSnHPo1

“Of course we're going to Laura's.”copyright protection4PENANA64rZvC73JA

“Excuse me, is this another jargon used in the future?”copyright protection4PENANAzBNSSIetrj

“No fool, the Laura is a machine that acts as a food processor by cloning biological cells.”copyright protection4PENANAAMQ8EIwlxU

“A food processor of the future, like those of Star Trek?”copyright protection4PENANAnEZPDusKxb

“What's all this about Star Trek?”copyright protection4PENANAl7N80FRe8j

“Hey, a very popular TV series in my time, a lot of movies were made of it.”copyright protection4PENANAyJ5oSJ7o5F

“I've never heard of it before.”copyright protection4PENANAjtjiiWNKHl

Wow, I wonder what the hell has happened in the past that Hailey hasn't heard of Star Trek.copyright protection4PENANAW2tJatp2Ix

No friends, don't believe that crap they show in The Big Bang Theory, the girls also see science fiction and the female fans of that series are legion. And even if Hailey didn't like that show, she should have at least heard of it.copyright protection4PENANAlghqF9aMyg

My new friend showed me the strange washing machine a while ago.copyright protection4PENANArRJKa1GXMn

“This model of Laura's is basic. It can generate several bars of meat and vegetable that you can then cook, and it can even generate purified water and fabric fibers.”copyright protection4PENANAiJpLsAfRCX

“Impressive.”copyright protection4PENANApXeHoTRzFp

“Not at all, you should see the Laura's in very fancy restaurants, those things are the size of this room and instead of food bars, they can reproduce a dead animal in a matter of minutes, including bones and nerves.”copyright protection4PENANAP7hzRrByon

“Whoa, hey, can you show me?”copyright protection4PENANAWH6mtzWJrz

  “Sure," Hailey said to me, and then she showed me the side of the machine. It opened and I could see how there were several small rectangular samples similar in size and thickness to semitransparent stamps. Next to these were small test tubes that were very thin and smaller than my little finger.copyright protection4PENANAHQxVxWPovv

“The rectangular samples are meat from different animals and birds; there are also samples from different fruits, vegetables, tubers, whatever you like; what looks like test tubes contain water, or juices from different fruits or similar.”copyright protection4PENANAOlC5Utxv2W

Hailey started the machine with the movement of her eyes and opened a panel through which after a couple of seconds a tray with a piece of raw meat that was apparently fish came out.copyright protection4PENANATYD0k7AhQ1

“Ta-da!” My friend said happily as she showed me the bar of meat that was rectangular and the size and thickness of a compact brick.copyright protection4PENANAQxRntpjiOP

Then the machine produced a juice of something green that looked disgusting, sure was something nutritious with celery and spinach that was poured into a kind of blender glass.copyright protection4PENANANCbqI6TfCW

“Gosh, hey, you said something about fabrics, too.”copyright protection4PENANAbvUPwfW6wN

“Yes, look” the young lady activated the Laura and on the other side a light pink ball appeared, it was sheep's wool ready to weave.copyright protection4PENANA7mlZKPp47d

“I've never seen anything so incredible before, but now what I remember in my time they were already experimenting with this technology.”copyright protection4PENANATVQ5lybfON

“Really?”copyright protection4PENANAbZj6PPlLWR

“Yes, they called it the process of growing meat for stem cells. They say the hamburger they made that time cost about $200 to $300,000 and tasted like a horse's ass, but the potential was phenomenal. In other words, at first the light bulbs were so expensive that only the rich could buy them, and the same thing happened with cell phones.”copyright protection4PENANAz4eV4YKt2S

“You're right, Vladimir, before the Laura's were very expensive, now everyone has them.”copyright protection4PENANAGWOw1a5cqT

“And in this day and age there are machines that prepare your food?”copyright protection4PENANA0BTjII93u5

“I wish, no machine could do that. There used to be androids that could do that, but they were banned long ago.”copyright protection4PENANAU3a8Ze7KH9

“Androids?”copyright protection4PENANACn6rU7B0k1

“Yes, they were very similar in shape to human, no, in fact, they were identical. There were several problems and the government of the United Space Earth had to suppress its manufacture.”copyright protection4PENANATkDMEluNpZ

“The government of the United Space Earth, what is that?”copyright protection4PENANATk23t2hAMY

“It’s the government that controls the entire planet along with the space bases surrounding the planet and the scientific bases on the Moon, Mars and in Europe, the moon of Jupiter.”copyright protection4PENANAKpmQQhYshj

"Hey, are you all right?” Hailey asked me with a funny smile on her face. It was clear that everyday life for her was incredible from my perspective, and she was enjoying it a lot.copyright protection4PENANAubE7Yitt5S

“Yes, I'm fine. In fact, in my time there were already plans to colonize Mars, so are there already cities on the Moon and Mars?”copyright protection4PENANAsZcu2Fxjgj

“Not at all, it is impossible to have cities on other planets. The gigantic space stations orbiting the planet alone are home to thousands of people. On Mars, the Moon and Europe, there are only a few scientific research stations with few people living there.”copyright protection4PENANAi0JFQzWP2e

“And why is that?”copyright protection4PENANA8wqMEo57Rb

“For many reasons, but mainly economic. That it can be done, but it would not be profitable or self-sufficient.”copyright protection4PENANA0jacOcSlw8

At that moment I remembered the words of an old song that my father liked, about colonizing the Moon and living with beautiful Selenites. Space cities are just a dream in the past or in the future.copyright protection4PENANAFP9ouZYrP0

Suddenly I saw a cat coming at me and Hailey grabbed him.copyright protection4PENANAGXx6KbuPil

“That's your cat, what's his name?”copyright protection4PENANA1jFbvtnoPU

“Well, his name is... Vladimir.”copyright protection4PENANAxuJGTdGRFv

“Like me, not fuc....!”copyright protection4PENANASltpreAW4T

“Don't you like cats?”copyright protection4PENANAi5cXgIrE6g

“I love them, but I was surprised that his name is Vladimir.”copyright protection4PENANAyELikEw1vb

Vladimir Simeon Mininof Gato, that's his full name," Hailey said to me as she looked tenderly at the cat and he looked at me with a surprised expression, well I guess it was a surprised expression. Cats' faces are hard to read.copyright protection4PENANAxox1NZfnVj
