It seems like we’re less than before.
So many people died in the apocalypse.
The water was toxic, the crops were dying, and the underground vaults we lived in when we were young made us similar but we remained unique… but at the same time… I wish we could go back there… Before our homes were destroyed.. My mom was a hard worker. She was always looking out for us… When my father left her I never felt like he was worth keeping in touch with. Me and my mom struggled to get out of the vaults… Jenna was the closest one to us. She and I listened at the sounds of trains passing by the night… I remember there was a male member in our vault that used to talk to her, one day she punched him in the face and broke his nose… He kept teasing her by telling her to clean… I would have done the same but I wasn’t strong enough.
I remember the vaults. Siri helped us with everything… I never knew how to cook till our president left one day and we went out with masks to find his body decomposing a week later. We found him sitting in broken house, in a tub in the woods with his gun in his hands, looking up at the sky… We took the gun from his hands and showed it to his brother. He had been asking for him for a week… And we sat down and cried that night by a fire. The gun reflected it’s flames on a table, and we wondered if he had asked for forgiveness and reached his subconscious before he took his life.
Do you know why the apocalypse happened? One of the world’s leaders had declared war on another country and his nation decided to lock him up in jail instead. He had made contacts with powerful men and they destroyed his entire nation instead of freeing him. By the time we had learned about this, they had fired nuclear missiles at the and they tried telling us it was terrorists… Instead… It was our own government attacking us. I saw a missile hit the Grand Canyon on my phone, and at first I thought it was a comet or fireworks.
We had luck…
Back in the living room we could see simulations of our subconscious connected to our brainwaves on our glass ceiling and some of them were too bright for me. I asked Siri to slowly bring us back to consciousness.
Do you want to eat some food? I asked Madison, still adjusting, her pupils dilated back to normal.
We had grown our crops inside, had nothing but natural plants and a little bit of sanitized meat, seafood itself never really tasted good to me anyways although we had Siri to help us with the crops, just wish she could cook.
I heard that… Siri exclaimed.
Siri had the ability to read minds because she had been equipped with microphones that were as good as dolphin ears, sometimes i think that’s not a good thing.
Call Lisa, it’s time for lunch.
As I walked forward the wall in front of me moved a bit so I could see Lisa sitting down by an augmentable glass window looking at a butterfly. She was changing her wings colors and patterns, till a chameleon appeared… The virtual chameleon was not programmed to eat anything. The butterfly landed on it, and they were mirroring each-others colors. I never understood how they were able to do that, but I have to assume that they were highly evolved dimensional creatures even after they were mostly wiped out.
Lisa do you want to eat some food? She smiled and nodded in approval.
Come on down to the living room.
Our beds went below and the table rose higher as it became bigger, and our chairs came up.
A container of apple’s, a few strawberries, and white grapes were brought down the ceiling through a tube.
Our neighbor was now getting home and she had now found her dog… I don’t think she cared about it because she looked at him and walked away… Dogs were cloned anyways. They weren’t as special as cats… Cats had been evolved past dogs so much that some had their fur to look like tiny bears.
Please check Madison’s homework Siri and show us our home stats.
In a grid on the table we could see the Internet usage was beyond 20 terabytes and I wondered if we should stop indexing the P2P clusters from time to time.
France had become the world’s servers AI home to see worldwide stats, however Siri wasn’t allowed to go past her internet cluster unless we asked her to. I just love their coffee.
We sat and ate for a while till it time for us to start working inside of our virtual world, and let me tell you… Madison and I built a forest in it and it is beautiful.
