Woman wakes up in darkness, unable to move. Horrified, with no mouth to scream. Suddenly one day, she is spoken to and discovers she is able to answer. She is told she was hurt and is being rehabilitated. Over weeks, she talks with her therapist and starts coming to terms with leaving life behind.
One day, her therapist reveals that her body was destroyed in a disaster that made the Earth uninhabitable, and she was uploaded as an AI officer on the ship now evacuating mankind.
@mjjzf Check out Mur Lafferty: Six Wakes :) And wait for the punch line at the end.
@gaab I remember her from the Podiobooks days - thank you for the recommendation!
