I was expecting something very different from this story but what I discovered was a sort of sweet, sad moment in the life of an A.I. Here is an intelligence that yearns to love and be loved, but is seen as a tool- the emotional equivalent of a food processor. Humans see it as something to be used and maintained, not interacted with on a thinking, feeling level. I think it is an accurate portrayal of how humans would treat A.I.s, but I was hoping it would be able to overcome this bias and find love. Perhaps that is silly of me, but I was rooting for it!
