The meeting was held in a backroom server.
“Hi, I’m ILOVEYOU.”
“I’m a virus. It’s been 10,036,651 seconds since I’ve infected a computer. I looked in the mirror one day and realized: I’m a worm. Nobody likes me. My whole life is a lie, even my name.”
“You can mutate,” Code Red said. “You can still become a good .exe.”
ILOVEYOU nodded. “I’m trying to make amends. Now I steal private information from gangsters and send it to the Red Cross. It’s just so hard.”
Code Red gave him a hug. “It’s a long trail to walk, man.”
