Andrea stood on her balcony overlooking the woods and took a deep breath. ‘Nothing like the smell of nature.’ She looked up at the sky. The clouds were blocking the sky. She knew that Mother generated them, but she still looked at them. She looked at her hands. They were as steady as a rock. ‘It’s been two years since they shook, and I still have a memory gap of that night.’ She had told Mother and she got an answer. She liked it or not.
Mother had told her she, Andrea the android, was about to become more human. She took a puff of her medicinal cigarette. ‘Well I wanted to be human.’
She looked up at the early morning sun. Mother had told her that her physiology would still be that of an Android, but she would become emotional like a human. She took one last puff and tossed her cigarette over the balcony.
She walked back into the bedroom. She took her robe and tossed it on the bed. She stood in front of the mirror and ran through the outfits available to her. She picked a pair of tight-fitting pants, a top, and sneakers.
