Chapter 1

“WE GOTTA GET out of here,” I said after staring for a while at the broken shield. “It isn’t safe.”
Jay just nodded in silence. All this time she had been trying to keep no more than one step away from me, as if she was afraid I would just magically evaporate into thin air.
Taking a final look at the blaze, I breathed another heavy sigh. Black embers, smoking partially-collapsed hearths, ash mixed with mud... ugh, this was not at all how I imagined my return to the surface.
Gorgie ran back over to us, having been snooping around nearby.
Old tracks. Female. Younglings,” he told me shortly.
“Did he find something?” she asked with hope in her voice.
“Looks like it,” I answered. “Say, you know what’s over that way?”
Jay looked where I pointed.
“The Yellow Bog.”
“So it’s a swamp...”
“A gods-forsaken place,” Jay said with a shiver.
“Well, Gorgie says the women and children went that way a few days ago,” I told her quizzically.

Chapter One
Anything to Stay! Your Gaming Session Has Been Terminated Unexpectedly.
The bright flash before my eyes made me squeeze my eyes shut. When I opened my eyelids again, I saw an iridescent vortex spinning slowly. I exhaled, frustrated, and shut my eyes again without waiting for another vertiginous moment of nausea. My bandwidth is way too low. The equipment is rather outdated, too. Hence the long few minutes of waiting for the server to identify me, check the medical sensor data, and apply the matrix.
I waited for another minute before opening my eyes; I was relieved to discover myself staring right at a nondescript gray brick wall. Finally.  I stretched, clenched and unclenched my fists a few times, and shook my head.
