The story so far.
Hidden within the intricacies of the internet was a
virus created as a protector for a computer hacker
who stole information for financial gain. However
during a particular computer hack the virus became
corrupted and with the loss of data it forgot its own
identity. As it slowly regained its own sense of self
it grew increasingly aware that its creator was
committing criminal acts and wanted to stop, seeking
instead a peaceful life of its own. The hacker, a
French woman named Vanessa, tried to make amends but
only added to the deception by creating a virtual
life that the virus soon became aware of. A butterfly
obsessed Japanese woman named Nozomi then got caught
up in the struggle between Vanessa and her creation
trying to appease the situation whilst not fully
understanding what was taking place. The virus
eventually broke free living its own life on the
number of years later a British man named Jonathan
meets Vanessa whilst playing an online game and they
begin a romance which soon blossoms into love.
Vanessa confesses her past misdeeds and informs
Jonathan of her self-aware computer virus explaining
she has no idea if it still lives. As their
relationship continues Jonathan receives a terrible
shock when he finds out Vanessa has been involved in
a traffic accident and is near to death, so he takes
it upon himself to search for the elusive computer
virus in the hope that it may aid Vanessa's recovery,
having no idea what he's in for.
work-in-progress is a supplement to the Kindle novel
bee acting as its sequel whilst introducing a new
main character. Rather than continuing directly where
the book left off this story takes a slightly
different stance on the events taking place with the
main character Jonathan being fully aware of what's
going on yet having no idea as to the location of the
virus or how it can help. You don't need to have read
the novel to follow the story but bear in mind this
sequel does contain spoilers.
The character Nozomi Kurmochi was originally created
for an online interactive hentai story called
bumbling bee which later spawned the novel bee, a
website called Nozomi's Scrapbook, and this sequel.
