Cynthia Kitchen was the lover that got away. They had been together for about five years, developing some of the more advanced GRAMMATRON programs to complement what was for Golam the mad rush of creative energy that led to the evolution of Nanoscript. Cynthia's programming skills and technical aesthetic were beyond brilliant. Golam remembers when he first met her, how she came to into his life out of nowhere, like she had just teleported into his home from some distant planet. Their life together was enflamed with a kind of work-play passion that liberated him from the doldrums of living in this fake world of restricted cash-access and meat politics. He wanted nothing more than to be with her again.
