Re: NYC: Hannah & Hugh
She noticed that he didn't say if he liked Theodore the way she'd meant, but she wasn't going to push it. All that mattered was that Hugh had found someone he could talk to and be himself with, and that person wasn't always a lover or a romantic interest. But she thought it was so important to have those people, and she was happy for him. "I think he's really smart if he's realized what a great person you are, Hugh. Anyone would be lucky to have you in their life." She said it earnestly, and she meant it very much.
She let go of his fingers after the squeeze, and she dipped her final mozzarella stick in sauce as he began to pay attention to his food. "I had already told him I wasn't Amy months ago, and that Amy was dead, and that I had her memories but wasn't her. I thought he knew I was an AI? I told him he could talk about what I was with you, or Si, or Mars, and this was back then. I thought everything was okay, but it's not." Which was a simple way to explain it, but she thought simple was best sometimes.
As for what she felt, she fell silent a little. She took bites of the mozzarella stick, and she took a sip of the water she hadn't touched yet. "I feel... angry. He told someone else, someone I barely know, and that was my thing. I get to decide who knows. It's dangerous!" She lowered her voice again. "It's dangerous, and it's also mine. I promised I wouldn't say anything to him about it, and I know he probably needed to talk to someone about it, but there are some things you just don't tell. Private and personal things. Things like this. It's mine, not his."
