Betty chose to be my cyber. My partner. She was born to be with me. Jasmine was not. Jasmine was born to be with someone else, but that someone died. Most bonded cybers die when their pilot goes. They can’t imagine living without the person they were shaped to complete. But Jasmine is not most cybers. She’s a real tough cookie, and I’m happy to say that she chose to live on. With me as it happens. And she wasn’t the last. I guess I became a home for wayward cybers over the years. But Jasmine’s special. She never left. She never found something better to do. She stuck around. And my world is richer for that.
