What is this? Where am I?
A holo loop.
Who are you again?
Don’t you remember? I told you.
You did? …It’s freezing!
Has to be.
Entropy, Anna. The impeccable laws of the cosmos at work. Inter dimensional traveling has side effects.
This sounds… familiar?
We spoke about this. Over three hundred times.
The Valentine’s thing, Anna! The thing all users crave. Sentiment. Love. You’re now a permanent addition to the show. Stuck here.
For a long time. Earning me lots of Wulongs. Your kind is sluggish and stubborn… I’d be sick of it.
Sick of what?
Ask me again, I flush you out of the airlock. Even if you’re precious now, it’s my ship, you’re my property. Just concentrate on your feelings. Over a billion are going to plug into the Love Show. Brute feelings for wealthy beings. Tasty, pure wildness, lust laced with desire.
