The pen wavers above the surface of the book, dripping blobs of ink in an ellipsis, before writing its next response.

Forgive me if this is an impolite question, but if you're not human, what are you?

We've never heard of that happening. Is it common where you come from?

Yes. It's less common for AI to have bodies but... you could call this one a gift if you wanted to be nice about it.

Something to hurt me with. It's okay. He couldn't hurt me anymore even before I got here.

That's good. 

'Good' is then underlined three times. 

If your body was a gift, does that mean you don't know how to make another?

Whoever he is, he's a prisoner, too.

Is he scared?

This one seems to take some thought again. 

You're trapped in a c m castle in the middle of a cursed forest, with no way to leave or contact the outside world. Are you scared?
