Read: A Date Night in Mars
Lana and Kee are riding a dragon together. What a terrific view of the landscape from up here. The dragon is flying with full force over the green mountains and sometimes even flipping in the air just like a fighter jet.
Lana is controlling the dragon. Kee asks as loudly as he can, “So what’s the point of flipping the dragon?”
Lana shouts back, “Haha… I just thought you might like it.”
Kee screams, “Ah! I was almost falling off…”
Kee adds, “Don’t burn anything Dany!”
They were heading towards Kings’ Landing. Kee and Lana played Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen respectively.
Lana’s phone rings. She needs to go back to work. She takes out the wifi/Bluetooth enabled virtual reality gear from her head which connects through the bio-chip in her head.
Kee says, “Oh! no. You have to go now?”
Both of them step outside the game room. The red Martian landscape is seen from the glass windows. The virtual game that they were playing is made after a famous 21st-century television series from earth named Game of Thrones.
Virtual reality is a day-to-day thing now. People used to watch games and movies. Now they have become parts of it.
A lot of things are virtual now including virtual dating and hookups. People live longer now, there is no need to increase the population. Human babies are born in labs out of test-tube embryos from parents they don’t know. There is no need for traditional marriages, having kids and raising a family.
Plus, simulation is better than reality anyway. Everyone is a pro in simulation. There is no need to be a physical expert in anything. It’s mostly in the brain anyway.
