Blurred gray blobs greet me as I blink my eyes open. An odd floating feeling encompasses me. I look down and discover that I am lying on butcher paper on top of a rigid bed made of some sort of composite material.

Above me is a screen. Strange, as I am sure it wasn’t there when I went to bed this night. Come to think of it, I don’t remember going to bed. My most recent memory is leaving the house for a morning jog. Everything else is a blank.

He aimed the reticule directly at his heart. Headshots are more ostentatious but less accurate and the high powered sniper rifle in his hands would ensure a quick death no matter where the bullet landed.

“I dreamt of her again, Dirk,” Mark said.

“Jesus, really?” Stan replied.

Mark proceeded to tell his best friend of his latest dream of the young petite Asian woman he constantly dreamed of with her auburn eyes and thick jet black hair wrapped into a ponytail.
