Trueborn scholars pinpoint what the s.h.i.+p did next as its first step toward independent sentience. In its memoirs, the s.h.i.+p credits the children with teaching it to misbehave.

Owen coughed uncertainly. "Umm, already?"

She squawked and pushed him off her. "Not for that." She sifted his hair through her hands. "To be with you forever."
