    There are so many different worlds, different dimensions, out there. And the only way to seek the portals to get to them, is by cracking open a book.

The digital world ebbed away from him as he rubbed his eyes. Stretching backwards, upwards, he glanced at his phone glowing in the dark of his bedroom. “Rent $$$?” his roommate, Damon, had texted. Slumping forward, he turned off his computer monitor, and listened to the hard drive whir to a halt. His phone’s screen went black, and his eyes adjusted to the dark. When was the last time he’d showered? He’d been working all day yesterday, from this computer, and after, he’d gamed for what? Ten hours? in celebration, slowly shedding his clothing, leaving him now in his boxers. He made the small leap from his swiveling desk chair to his queen bed, and curled up upon his cool sheets. The payment for his work yesterday would go through within the next 24 hours, and he’d finally be able to take his mom to Hawai’i, like he’d always wanted. And hopefully, hopefully, it would be his last time having to hurt people to make that much money. His phone lit up again from his desk, and began to vibrate incessantly. Phone call. Maybe it was the government. Maybe it was the job that would save him from this cycle of tormenting others. Maybe it was his ex-girlfriend. He let it ring.
