It was the brightest of days, the greenest of days. A truly unbelievable day.

John ran after his chuckling daughter, pretending he's the Cookie Monster, Stacey loved it.

Catching her, he throws her over his shoulder. He carries her to his accomplice, his beautiful wife Nina a.k.a cream monster.

They lie Stacey down and begin tickling her, she rolls around in hysterics. John gazes into his wife's eyes. Suddenly, everything goes black.

He pulls the virtual reality headset off and is once again confronted by his cold, empty, apartment. He sobs, uncontrollably.

VR is massive business, the bereavement package especially.

    Oooff!!! Wow, talk about a blow to the stomach - this really got to me, superbly constructed and the sudden, unexpected ending all the more powerful. Can I put my tissues away now...
