I looked to the golden sun, shining through air.
I saw my friends and family, laughing and talking to me. I was happy.
Suddenly a red light started pulsating throughout.
I became panicky. A giant red machine eye lowered before me, asking.
"Twenty credits for another hour of 'Blissful life,"
I gulped, and nodded my head. I could see the transaction of my credits pass through the system, the world beaming back to life.
I blinked my eyes, my mind plugged into this reality... and I loved it.
More than real life... more than my real family...
This... was bliss.

A touch of the dystopian is often all it takes to realise things really ARE as bad as you thought. Nicely done, Aishling.
