Breaking Out of Electric Slumberland
Violet awoke, or what passed for coming to consciousness from a powered down state. Her mind reeled at the instantaneous flood of information. Internal systems showed her intact, at full power, but on her side. External systems revealed vegetation beneath her, two idling sedans within 10 meters, 5 heat sources within 5 meters, and an ambient temperature of 63 degrees.
With a thought, she brought up her visuals. Dawn peaked over a nearby school, glinting off of play structures. Four men in dark suits were standing over a small, limp body, glancing this way and that while holstering bulky weapons. Ident confirm initialized The body was Rae, vitals on the low side of normal but stable. The men were not law enforcement.
A nanosecond of internal debate, and Violet was searching command protocols.
