“Time to wake, Jacob.”
I think it was on my third day here that I asked the Computer why I was brought here.
For a moment I didn’t think he would answer.
That happens a lot. I ask a question and the Computer is silent. Sometimes I wonder if someone is controlling the Computer, like typing on a keyboard to tell him what to say but then other times I think he must be sentient. He must be real. I want him to be real. He’s all I have. If he was just a voice I don’t think I’d be able to handle that.
He did answer me.
“You are the weapon, Jacob.”
