Keko vs Neko: Epic Staring Contest

Keko vs Neko: Epic Staring Contest

What started out as a happenstance encounter has amplified into a full on battle of wits. Watery eyes or fried circuits are a possibility.

Keko: a charming Lego Robot designed by Peter Ried (Designer of Lego Ideas set – Exo Suit 21109)

Neko: Japanese for Cat (Cat designed by Schleich)

The first encounter: Early morning. Blue hues. Staring ensues.

Does this provide narrative? It is up to you to decide.
