Taking a Mile by J. Kathleen Cheney

Writers of the Future XXIV

Viviana Fuentes waits in a cemetery to die. She is an avatar-- uploarded from her original and downloaded into a new body, designed to senesce or die within a certain timeframe or if told to do so--a being that the Pope is unsure if it has a soul, and Viviana had been a Catholic. When she bumps into another avatar, she is given the choice to run and become independent of the Rand company that built her although it’s hard to hide from the company.
