Bill.

Another bill.

Coupons for the local pizza place - nice.

Another bill.

Application response.

In earnest, you drop the remainder of the mail onto the floor as you shut the door to the veritable box you live in - your apartment is so small that it's hardly worth the two-fifty you pay per month, and that's saying something. The unopened letters join the graveyard of newspapers and collection agency statements you've let build up in the doorway.

You'll look through them. Later.

You're too busy ripping open the letter - it's not your first choice of college, but at this rate, you'll take what you can get. It's been four years since you graduated high school, and - looking back - you weren't that bad of a student. Okay, so there were the sick days to account for...and the blank tests...

Oh, and that one essay, where you just wrote out the lyrics to 'Hotel California' rather than explain the themes found in blah-blah-blah...

Still. Maybe this college will-...

"Mr. Heron, we thank you for your application, however we regret to..."

You don't read much past that. In disgust, you let the rejection letter join the bills. Fuck that letter.

Your name is Alexander Heron. You had a busy day running the cash at the local grocery store, you've just read your third college rejection letter in the past two weeks, and you're in serious need of some stress relief.

Your computer is already on, your VR headset is never unplugged, and your game is calling to you.

What are you going to do first?

You're a growing boy of twenty-two. You always need to eat.

You go inspect the fridge, ignoring the dishes piled up by the sink. You don't exactly have a kitchen - more, a mini-fridge, a toaster oven, a microwave (but you can't use both at the same time, not enough outlets) and a sink to clean up afterwards.

In your fridge, you have a half-empty tupperware container of pasta. Your mother dropped it off last week.

Still looks good, though. You think. You're pretty sure.

There are also three sodas (one's half-empty and flat, by now, but you can still drink it) and your last bottle of beer.

Oh yeah. You're living the high life, that's for sure.

You grab the container and flat soda and go sit in the only chair there is - your desk chair, at your computer. Automatically, you slip on the VR headset and jiggle your mouse to awaken the monitor.

About a month ago, a free copy of this game was delivered to your doorstep. A small, independent gaming company produced an MMO along with their own accompanying virtual reality technology; they're local, apparently, and basically everyone in the city got the exact same bundle on their doorstep.

It hasn't even gone on sale, yet. It's 'still in beta', is what they're saying, and you've all essentially been given the chance to be the ones to test it. You don't think anyone outside the city has even heard of it, yet.

You're no idiot. You know it was a suspiciously awesome thing to happen to you.

But, hey, you've been playing it for a month, and so far...it's pretty fucking cool.

PAUSE.

Proceeding.

The VR headset seems to take over everything as you open up the game, and within moments -

You're in.

Ping.

"Hey, want to chat?"

"Are you a girl IRL?"

"Heals plz : )"

"You roleplay?"

"Up for a sex chat? ; P"

"Buffs?"

"A/S/L?"

Okay, that last one was just stupid. You all know you're within the same city.

"Fuck off," you say, and voice regulator program makes it sound distinctly female. That's the last communication you give before you quickly switch off group chat - way too noisy for you to tolerate.

Part of you regrets making your character a girl. Still, people are more helpful towards you when you pretend to be a chick. It's the way of the gaming world. You've come to terms.

You're staring out into a variation of the modern world. It's almost Steampunk - given the craze over it lately, you're guessing that's why they made the gaming world that way.

You're able to bring up pretty much any screen just by thinking about it. Automatically open, to start with, is your group list and chat windows.

Your group is:

Gunmetal
Hellblazer
Knifebaby
Newts
Whiteflower


Of that list, all of them but Hellblazer are currently online.

You message each one and get an immediate reply from Newts.

Newts: God, yes, please.
Newts: I've been farming for the past fifteen minutes.
Newts: G is trying to help W level.

Thank god for that. Whiteflower is about ten levels behind you all. She started gaming the same time the rest of you did...she just seems to be slower at it.

Being a Healer is no excuse. You're a Healer, and you've leveled just fine.

"I'll meet you," you reply to Newts, and get an immediate message back.

Newts: I'm in the sewers.

"Ugh," you start heading towards the nearest underground entrance. "Farming crystals?"

Newts: Worst quest aspect ever.
Newts: But you just know we'll need loads of them for any crafting we do.

"The entire group will owe you big time."

Newts: That's the whole point. : D

Let's go help newts.

Also, discreetly hit on him while we're in the sewers. Nothing brings out the romance like virtual cisterns. <3
