Episode 10

“Now I know how a guinea pig feels,” I say as I step into the long thick transparent transport tube.

“To enjoy your ride and not fall on your face, it is suggested you sit,” a computer voice says.

I listen to that voice.

Squatting to a sitting position I feel a current of air below me. It’s kind of refreshing.

“Your ride will begin now,” a reassuring computer voice tells me.

I start floating through the tube. I resist the urge to yell, “weeeeeeeee”.

So this is what it felt like to be an office memo in the 1950s,” I think to HARV.

I could look that reference up but I choose not to…”

I sat back and enjoyed the ride through the tube. Normally I’m not a fan of heights but for some reason that didn’t bother me as I glide at least 20 stories above the ground.

“Prepare for arrival into the clearance area…” the computer voice tells me.

I feel my speed slowing down. I see an opening in front of me. The next thing I know I’m standing in a round room surrounded by blue uniformed guards.

“Nice to see you back, Ms. Sexy!” a guard says with a smile.

I smile at him and point to my throat. I mime a few words.

The guard grins. “Poor Sexy, cat got your tongue…”

In fact all the guards are smiling and waving and winking. Yep, Sexy has a way with people and near people.

A round drone floats over to me. “Please prepare for random scan. No need to talk, Ms. Sexy…”

HARV can you hack this drone to make it think I’m not wearing a hologram…”


Well if not, I’m going to have a lot of explaining to do….”

Yeah plus you’ll probably get shocked a lot…” Vote below on what will happen next or if reading in email click Take our Poll.
