What if all my fears are right? What if everything that people have been hinting at

that my mind has been hinting at

is true? I have to know for sure. Am I a Cylon? One way or the other, I'll take that frakking test of Dr. Baltar's, and he'll tell me the truth. Then, I can go back to my Raptor, go back to Chief, go back to my life that I had and just fight off those toasters like I'm supposed to do. All I have to do is sit here and wait.

Why is he taking so long?

Gods, I want to ask him what's wrong, but what if the reason Dr. Baltar is taking forever is me? I'm a Cylon and he's scared to tell me or something like that? I wouldn't hurt him. Fine, he's not one of my favorite people in the fleet right now because his presence forced me to leave Helo behind on Caprica, and Helo was a good friend and a great ECO. I wouldn't hurt him, though. I couldn't hurt him.

Why is he looking at me strangely?

Gods, please, please just let the test be negative. It has to be green, he said. Just green, and my life will go back to being normal.

"Congratulations, it's green! It's very bright green. You're not Cylon!"

Thank the Gods.

"100% human and-- and very, very bright green, as well."

A deep breath and a slight smile, but my life will be okay now. I'm not a Cylon. The test said so. Dr. Baltar said so. I'm fine.

"Well-- well, there's nothing to be worried about anymore. Yeah, you couldn't be more human if you tried."

I'm going to be fine.

((Locked to Baltar and to all Cylons))

I would want to know the truth.

I couldn't believe that I was a Cylon. I know my mind, the part of me that was "Sharon", which refused to listen to the part of me that was "Eight", kept trying to help me out. Small messages, like the writing on my mirror, or the way that I found water when the Fleet needed it even though it took a couple of tries… that part of my mind was stronger. Not by much, but it kept me going for awhile. Long enough for me to fool myself into thinking that I really was Sharon.

That the apartment on Caprica was mine. That the pictures of my family were real. That my life wasn't a lie.

I was used as a tool and left behind in the dust )

If I had known from the beginning what I was, without the implanted memories of "Sharon" stuck in me, then at least I would know my place in the galaxy. I would have been a Cylon, pure and true, instead of fighting my programming. I wouldn't have bothered with humans, or Chief, or Adama… I wouldn't have hurt people accidentally.

"Sharon" might not have existed, but then again, that would mean the plan to conceive wouldn't have worked, either. There would be no Helo and Hera living happily on Galactica, there would be no sadness over my "death" as I told Chief how much I loved him, there would just be me.

Whatever I am.
