3. Chapter Two

Mindtrap. The computer whirred as the results came up. The search didn't leave Pim disappointed.  

The best in virtual reality.

Video game of the century.

 Pim clicked into the most promising site as she looked for further insight to what it really was about this game that was shaking the popular crowd's world. 

And, from the looks of things, everyone else's.

A virtual reality games console, with graphics so intense it was hard to believe they weren't real. After the user had strapped themself into the light, nylon play suit, and attached various different contraptions to the head, elbows and knees which communicated with the device, they were ready play.

And oh, how Pim wanted to play!

A desire burned inside her, refusing to go out, no matter how hard she attempted to restrain her thoughts - craving to lovingly stroke the game's box as she held it in her hands, about to tear it open and play it for the first time. Though how she'd get the money to play it, she couldn't even fathom. 

But what was the game about? Every website she'd been to had spoken of it's complex designs and stories, yet each one was equally different. One told of a simulated Red Riding Hood, although a rather more macabre version, another of the user being put into the shoes of the infamous Celtic hero, the great Boudicca. 

Adding to the bitter sweet taste of longing, was the game's slogan, "Once you're in, you'll never get out". 

At that moment, Pim couldn't think of anywhere she'd more like to be trapped.

How wrong she was.

No matter what she might have thought with foresight though, Pim yearned to play the game, to become as addicted to it's breath taking graphics as her tormentor, Shannon Timmons. 

She just had to find a way to do it.
