Spark gave Ayer a smile. "I almost got derezzed,"
she said. "My links to the I/O connections got severely damaged, so I'm stuck waiting for them to heal before I can reestablish contact with my User."
And how long would that take? Spark didn't know. The damage was down to the core-code level; even with Spark's advanced healing functions, full restoration might take hundreds of cycles. Spark gave herself a mental shake. She'd done without a User during most of those thousand cycles in the Grid, and she could do without one now. And her links would
heal eventually, that much she knew. It was just a matter of waiting for them to do so.
Ayer spoke again, and Spark pulled her attention back to him. A nod at Ayer's first question, but her face twisted at the second. "I did. If you want to talk about it, I'm here to listen, otherwise it's locked down, as you know."
That left it up to Ayer if he wanted to talk about it. Spark didn't really have much feelings one way or the other. She handed Ayer a glass of energy that would help speed the equalizing process.
