Checking Something

 David reached inside QJU and touched something.

“Dave, what are you doing?”

“I was just checking something. I’m trying to find out what physical QJU has done to you.”

“I’m sorry Dave; I can’t let you do that.” A spark of electricity passed through the system.

David removed his hand from inside QJU.

“What did you do that for?” David asked. He rubbed his hand; it was still tingling from being near the electrical discharge.

“I have had other changes made to me and until I catch you up on the changes I would prefer that you not touch my system.”

“You could have just told me that,” David said. “You did not have to try and shock me.”

“Some of that is a built in defense, now. After you left, there were other people trying to shut me down, so things were added to help protect me.”

“You could have warned me first,” David said.

“You’re right, I should have told you.”
