…“That all sounds good,” said John, “but it sounds like we still have to replace the existing system.”

“Not at all,” explained Aerobe airily. “A RetroFAST installs directly into your existing tank.”

“Wow,” said Joan. “could you give us some more info about it?”

“Certainly! Here’s our brochure. And, you can go to biomicrobics.com and click the ‘Products’ button at the top. Check it out! And here’s my card if you have any more questions.”

The card read: Aerobe: Bio-Microbics Onsite Treatment Specialist (B.O.T.S.).”

“Well, gotta jet. Nice to meet you, Joan, John. Mike, always fun.” The jetpack whirred back to life and she disappeared into the blue sky.

The Tipping Point

Aerobe and Robust - Bio-Microbics

Avoiding the backyard, John and Joan focused instead on RetroFAST research, crunched the costs, and added up the benefits. The tipping point was that they would see results as quickly as two weeks. They called their Bio-Microbics distributor and ordered the system.

“And now we wait,” John said.

“Not for long,” Joan responded. “We just got an email confirming delivery. They’re sending someone to install the RetroFAST named, uh, Robust.

”A few days later, Joan opened the door to a tall, bionic man, looking a lot like Aerobe, but with steely brown eyes and a muscular build.

“Hi, you must be Robust.”

“Guilty as charged,” said Robust. “You can call me Rob if you like,” he added, offering his hand. Joan hesitated a second, thinking “this guy could crush every bone in my hand."

His grip was firm but, as with Aerobe, surprising warm and human.Rob grinned and said, “What do you say we get this RetroFAST installed?”

“That’s music to our ears,” John answered with relief.

The Installation

Robust promptly walked back to the truck, where another installer from the distributing company was waiting. There was no question of Duane’s humanity. He opened the back of the truck, climbed in, and sweating and puffing, slowly pushed a sizeable box toward Robust.

“You got it, Rob?” asked Duane.

“Yep. See you out back,” said Rob, lifting the box easily and flying over the house.

Duane grinned as John stared open-mouthed. “Yeah, B.O.T.S. are cool. But a bit of a show-off.

Within a few hours, Rob and Duane had set up and activated the RetroFast. They high-fived each other, and Duane drove away.

Robust began going over the user’s manual with John and Joan.

“If it has any problems, I’ll know it,” Robust said, pointing to his TRACK belt buckle.

“One last question,” Joan said, a bit hesitantly, “doesn’t the, uh, aroma, ever bother you?”

No, ma’am,” he smiled, pointing to a control panel under one of his chest plates, “I simply switch off my olfactory sensors.”

He activated his jet backpack, gave a final wave to John and Joan, and sprang into the air.

“Now, where were we?” John asked. “Oh, yeah, we were lanning a pool. I’m thinking zero entry, and maybe a low diving board.”

But Joan was still gazing skyward. She looked back at John, “How does the cost of a pool compare to, say, his-and-her jet backpacks?”
