Emily was lonely. She slept alone in a bed that was almost insultingly made for two. So, after saving up for a few months, she bought a Bed Person.
The Bed Person wasn’t for sex. Emily already had a Sex Person for that. But she didn’t really like it. It was good at sex, sure. But the way it seemed to stare into her with its blank face while it thrust away made her uncomfortable. And after it was done it never stayed to snuggle. It just took a shower and plugged itself back into its recharging port.
The Bed Person was specifically designed for snuggling. It was built to hold its owner through the night. That’s what all the ads said, anyway.
