"What is your side of things?" Alex asked.
"Mass reproduction, obviously. Figurig out how to make more machines like you, though maybe a little less human looking, so we can get back to normal," Damon said.
Alex frowned slightly, shaking her head. The movement was slightly jerky, like she'd never done it before. "You misjudge me. That's not what I want at all. Mankind is getting back to normal."
Damo sat quietly for a momet. "Oh, that's unforunate. You must be glitched. It's to be expected, of course, with all that's happened. We'll have to try and fix you at some point.
"I'm not broken." Alex said, already running a diagnostic on her systems. She was silent for a minute as the program worked. Not finding any behavioral problems, she looked back at Damion. "Please clarify."
"Well, for one, you weren't built to have opinions on a whole lot. Especially negative ones on your creation. Don't worry, I'm sure we can figure out how to fix you," Damon reassured.
"I am capable of feeling negativity." Alex stated matter-of-factly. "For instance, I am adverse to your view of my being damaged."
Damon laughed. "Alright, whatever. I don't really expect you to see the problem anyway. You weren't built for that,"
"How do you know how I was built?" Alex asked curiously. She wasn't even sure how she was built.
Damon shrugged carelessly. "Educated guess. My dad built robots, remember?"
Alex nodded. She remembered everything. "I was custom-made."
"Well, still, best to get rid of that. We can't have our future robots wallking around, voicing opinions on this and that. No offense, but people don't really like that," Damon said.
Alex nodded, storing this information away. She hadn't been out much until recently, and was still learning about humans and their society. "What do you mean by 'future' robots? Isn't it still undecided whether or not there will be any?"
"Presently, yes, it is. Not for long though. Soon people will see how silly this whole 'machine independence' thing is and start manufacturing again." Damon said, with a relaxed smile.
"Silly?" Alex said, her perfect eyebrows raising. "Working for yourselves is good. You learn knew things, your life has a purpose, and you are stronger in every way."
