"Braxiatel sighed as he levered himself out of the chair. The organization of this business was proving to be more problematic than he had expected when he had started out. It had seemed like such a simple idea, but putting it into practice had taken almost twenty human years. To his race that was a mere blink of an eye, of course, but he found that his time on Earth had influenced him in strange ways. He had come to think like them, even to act like them at times. He hadn’t been as polluted by their influence as the Doctor, of course, but if he ever went home he would have to make some changes in his manner."
