It took him a moment to respond to what I had done because he seemed pretty surprised. This was awkward and I didn't know why I'd thought that this was a good idea. Every little piece of logic that was once in my mind was gone now. Before I lost myself to my emotions completely, I slowly pushed him away and distanced myself. We both avoided each others' eyes for quite some time. Walking over to the computer, I saw that the program was there to greet me again.

[I've found out several things which might interest you.]

The line blinked restlessly, as if it were waiting for a response from my end. I wasn't sure if I should put anything while I was being watched. When I turned around to get an idea of what he was doing. I could see that Darek was still looking away nervously.

“It started up just fine.” I said absentmindedly.

“What did you mean when you did that?”

“I don't really know.”

“I didn't think that you'd even consider us friends.”

“I'm sorry for confusing you, then.”

He walked up to me and then stared at the screen.

“Did you put that there?”

“No. That program that I coded seemingly became sentient.”

“I doubt that.”

“I don't blame you.”

“Here, let me show you what I mean.” I said as I sat down on the chair and carefully thought about what I should type as a response.

[I doubt you would turn on the machine without being present at some point.]

BlackSky: Feeling restless, are we?

[I do not wish to be mocked, either. If you do not mind.]

BlackSky: Right. What did you want to say?

“So, you really are BlackSky, huh?” Darek asked, almost to himself.

“Yeah. Where did you get the name OpalSnow?”

“Uhhh...It's kinda personal.”

“Whatever you say, then.”

[Is there someone there with you?]

“That's rather strange.” He said in disbelief.

“I know. This whole situation has been rather...demanding.”

“What has it been telling you?”

“A lot, but I wonder how it got to be this way. I did not program it to be this complex.”

“Maybe it received something from going online.”

“That's what I thought.”

The End
