Chapter 2 – by Brytestar
Ted: Because the newly powered CPU can quickly outgrow your original brain neurons. If I place you back after the 10 day limit, even Les won't know for sure what will happen.
Ted: Well, kitten, I need to do something -- why don't you test out your new body around the house? Don't go out yet until I fully briefed you.
Jaimee: Ok you big lug. I've mastered walking already.
Ted: WOW that's great!
Joy CPU: What.....happened to me? Did it work?
Ted: It did Joy. Lester was jumping up and down.
Joy CPU: ..............
Ted: This is my plan. Joy you understood what I needed to do.
Joy CPU: ......I do. You love Jaimee. I'm glad that I can help. But
now what? Jaimee will live within my old body where will I be?
Ted: She can control both bodies. I will teach her. She wanted to have a family.
Joy CPU: ............
Ted: Enough of my babbling I got to see how Jaimee is doing. I'll place you in sleep state for now. However the 10 day period will be over soon. I'll figure out something.
Joy CPU: I'll be waiting here. For another few months. Maybe I should
go on the I-net.
Ted: Can Joy be jealous? But her personality hasn't taken shape. I reconfigured Joy's programming matrix to make sure that she doesn't try anything to Jaimee. But still maybe I should circuit wash the CPU.
Jaimee: This is great! I still haven't fully get used to this yet.
Jaimee: Is something wrong?
Ted: No pumpkin. I was thinking about what you just said about a family.
Ted: I'll figure out something. I need to download some how to info about your new body. Since Joy won't be joining us for sometime, I happened to keep the software interface units that come with Joy. I need you to remain here in this makeshift lab.
Jaimee: But why?
Ted: Because I want to make sure that everything is ok. Once I have the results then we can go from there. I'll always make sure that you always have the option of returning to your old body. However I had to make some modifications because of the accident. But they are minor ones.
Ted: Don't worry kitten. For a short time we can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Jaimee: I heard you talking to Joy. I felt sorry for her. I mean she was pushed out of this body. Maybe you can get her a new one?
Ted: ............. I'll have to talk to Les about it. I'm sure that we can come up with something.
Ted: Let me make sure you get the files. You will feel some disorientation but it will be brief.
<JAIMEE'S as to the is she and normal. back minutes within entered data wide grow eyes>
Jaimee: ................interesting. I feel tired.
Ted: I'm going to have to recharge you. Look over the data during your
downtime. I'll place you in minimum active mode while you get you read
the how to files.
Ted: Nitty night, kitten.
Ted: Les? It's me, Ted. Do you know anything about the Hubot principle?
Les: Only in the ASFR universe. It's untested though. What made you bring that up?
Ted: It's Joy. I think that her blank personality is evolving. I took
out Joy's CPU and replaced it with....
Les: I'll get that "story" about a overload that created microchips to convert people into hubots. It's another type of zombie. I know the web site. It's kind of farfetched but the hubot concept has been active in certain circles.
Ted: Of course! I can make some more modifications. Turn Jaimee's original body into a biodroid. Hmmm......
Ted: Jaimee will get first shot. There's 8 days left before she outgrows it. Then Joy can takeover her body. Hmmm but I got to be careful. Jaimee gets bent out of shape. But since she's in droid form I can shut her down.
Ted: I have some news. Jaimee I know about your concerns. There is still 8 days left before you can no longer use your old body. After that period you can no longer return. From that time I will give Joy the option of taking it over. I can create some legal papers and say that you and Joy were long lost twin sisters. Joy rarely ventured out of the house anyway.
Joy CPU: I.......don't know what you say.
Les: Hey I'm just an extra voice and support.
Ted: Anyway this is kind of sudden. But time is running out. I will
give you both until tomorrow. Seize the opportunity while it is here.
Jaimee: You know I was jealous of you but now I feel sorry.
Joy CPU: ...........
Jaimee: Anyway before we go on tell me about your birth and programming...
