Prompts = Insidious, Placate, Put

Boris was contemplating this insidious feeling when Neelix the cat-shaped robot/therapist called him.

“… You didn’t show up for the treatment session today”

“Oh, I forgot!”

“Ok, I can put you for tomorrow morning at 7 am”

“Neelix, to be honest, I don’t think it’s working”

“I know you started the treatment in order to please your wife, but you need to keep at it”

“That’s the point. She left me indefinitely. I don’t need to placate her anymore!”
