A prequel to The Robot.
Mark walks up to Greg's house and sees him in the garage.

"Hey, Greg, oh wow. Are you feeling all right? You don't look so good," Mark asked Greg.

"No, I am not," said Greg.

"What is wrong?" said Mark.

"My back is a little sore. I pulled it by lifting more than I could, while cleaning my garage. This place is a mess. I was trying to do some spring cleaning. But, now that my back is sore, I cannot move well. That means other chores will pile up, like the lawn," said Greg.

"Well, I can help you until you feel better," said Mark.

"You would do that?"

"Yea, it is no problem."

"Thank you so much."

"Anytime," said Mark.

As Greg went inside the house to rest, Mark helped clean the garage a little more. Then mowed the lawn for Mark. When done he went in to check on Greg for a while then he went home.

After Mark was gone, Greg started to think about what he could do in the future. If only he could have someone help all the time like Mark. Or even better, if he had a robot that could do things for him. Now there is an interesting idea. Greg grabbed a piece of paper and got to work on a design.
