Hello! Welcome to another #sixsunday snippet and thanks for stopping by. I'm continuing with my sfr short story Terms & Conditions Apply - now available on Smashwords and Amazon - and Marie has just tried to give the avatar Soren his marching orders. But he wants to put her straight about her misconceptions over him first...
His comment sparked a sudden pang of guilt. “You mean you’re not just a machine?”
He gazed at her, as if considering the question. “We are artificial constructs, built to serve the AI, to be an extension of it and to ensure that everyone on Venus Ascendant is happy. But that doesn’t make us mere ciphers. Each of us carries memories from a real person, one who either chose this existence in preference to the many kinds of death they were facing, or as penance for a crime.”
