Rogue Protocol (2018) Martha Wells (The Murderbot Diaries)

Rogue Protocol

Being a SecUnit sucked. I couldn’t wait to get back to my wild rogue rampage of hitching rides on bot-piloted transports and watching my serials.

Or Miki was a bot who had never been abused or lied to or treated with anything but indulgent kindness. It really thought its humans were its friends, because that’s how they treated it.

I signaled Miki I would be withdrawing for one minute. I needed to have an emotion in private.

In my feed, Miki said, I never talked to a bot like me before. I have human friends, but I never had a friend like me.

Miki told her, Priority is to protect my friends.
Priority change, Abene sent. Priority is to protect yourself.
That priority change is rejected, Miki told her.

Parts of this one really stuck with me.
