Part 2

Ten pairs of boots. One pair escaping, nine chasing.  The chasers closer.  Closer.  Built in navigation, fly by wire muscles.  Thirty hour days; six extra for street cleansing.  You need some luck not to be cleansed.  Did central programmers include a luck utility function when those first AI  installations were tested?  It seems probably not.  Ten pairs of boots.  One tiring.  An alley opposite a brightly lit neon sign hanging over a Sino cafe.  No point hiding.  The first felt the worse.  The second was the best.  The third knocked unconscious.  They are trained not to kill, but to instill.
