[Sabel] Have you ever given something up, only to spend the rest of your life trying to get it back?
[Clerk] “It looks as though payment has gone through. Congratulations, Mr. Artimus!”
[Artimus] "OK. Good.”
[Clerk] “I do apologize for the delay. With a custom job like this, it takes time, and of course, money.”
[Artimus] “Sure.” I didn’t tell him I had to mortgage my apartment for this purchase.
[Clerk] “Well, what do you think?”
[Artimus] I sat and stared for a few moments, and tried not to give away that this moment was the only thing I'd thought about in months, and that I’d sat awake at night both dreading and yearning for it. That it had smothered and consumed me and fuelled that void inside until there was nothing else left. It had distilled my life down to just one simple question: “Can you really replace a human with something that just looks like one?”

I had to believe you could.
