Notations: Vaguely het.
Disclaimer: I own nothing.


He calls himself "Handsome" Alvin, but to Vansen he's just another fucking AI, like the ones who killed her parents.

His touch makes her skin crawl. His touch makes her

He fascinates her, and even through her shame Vansen can feel his cool gaze on her body, on her skin, and she knows that one of these leaves she'd going to find out if he was programmed for more than pool sharking.
