Note: I was bored. I have no idea where this came from. Not sure if any of this make sense.
Zoe remembered what it was like to be human even though she knew she was never really human to begin with. She remembered anyway. She remembered all the things the Real Zoe, the human Zoe had programmed her with.
All her memories.
All her dreams.
All her loves.
And the real Zoe had loves.
Even loves she didn't know she had.
Loves like Lacy. Zoe remembered Lacy. The real Zoe had never felt like this about Lacy which is why she knew she was different, unique. That she was real. That she mattered. She wasn't just a perfect copy like Zoe's father thought she was. If she just a copy she wouldn't be having these feelings for Zoe's best friend.
And Lacy wouldn't be having these feelings for her.
Because Lacy never felt this way about Zoe.
None of this was real. In the outside world she was a robot and Lacy was just Lacy. In the virtual world they could be anything they wanted. She could be the real Zoe and she could have Lacy all to her self.
However the real world would never allow it. So she just had to make sure the real world didn't get in their way. She would protect Lacy and love Lacy.
It was what she was made to do. It was what she had to do. And no one was going to get in her way.
