The internet is huge. But not huge enough for Ava to never meet her soul-mate. When Ava comes across the blog of someone with the pen-name 'retrac', somehow her life is transformed. With one simple message, a new love begins to blossom between two very different people. But whilst these two internet-crossed lovers exchange messages, a normal family gets along with their everyday life, just down the street. But behind every perfect scene, is a fault. What hides behind the darkness of the computer screen?


1. Ava


A page pops up.

Bright multi-coloured letters reading ‘retrac’ cover the screen.

Nothing else.


I enter the first blog.

I’m retrac, ask me a question on chat and I’ll answer it for you on my blog.


Scanning the page, there are a few blog posts based upon people’s questions.
Blog posts with no comments.
Blog posts with no likes.
Blog posts just…ignored.


My eyes flick upon the flashing icon on the top of the page.
*Chat here!*
*Chat here!*
*Chat here!*
The words draw me in each time, as if there’s an invisible string pulling me closer and closer to the screen.

There’s no turning back.

Pick a username.
It doesn’t take long to remind myself of my own name.
My fingers hover over the keyboard, thinking of something to say.

Ava: Hi.
It only takes a second before I receive a reply.
retrac: hi.
