Cyberfantasy: Episode 4

Hello, readers!

We're back from our hiatus! Hope you all have had a lovely July. Now, to start us back into our blogging groove, how about another episode of Cyberfantasy? :)

Episode 4

Well, for a fact, I was not equipped for any type of travel. I seldom like to leave my comfortable apartment except to go to work, and even then, I try to get home as soon as possible. I’m definitely an introvert.

And now Sona wanted to know if I was ready for extensive travel. I wondered how much money was in my bank account, and how much I could actually spend on a crazy journey. 

“Sona... I’m, uh... well, not exactly poor,” I said out loud, “but I’m not rich either. Where will we have to go? How much money will I need?”

By extensive travel, I mean that you will be required to exert a considerable amount of physical energy.  
As for money, you will only require enough to reach the bus station. One of my human assistants will be waiting in the empty lot nearby.

“Oh, well - that makes it easy,” said Chloe. “When shall we start?”

However, it is vital that you leave any electronics behind. They are dangerous and unpredictable in this situation.

 “How will we speak to you if I don’t bring my laptop or phone?” I asked, at the same time trying to suppress my sense of alarm at the mention of “exerting considerable amounts of physical energy”. What was I getting myself into?

My assistant Bria is able to communicate with me without the use of electronics. Once you have met up with her, you should have no trouble. 
I hope this is all satisfactory.
There was that sarcasm again.

“Sounds good. We’ll leave as soon as we can,” said Chloe, getting up and beginning to clear the plates and napkins off the table. 

After putting the remains of the pizza into the fridge, I found my backpack and stuffed it with granola bars and a few waterbottles. I really had no idea what I was doing - the only other “adventure” I had ever been on was a hike with Chloe. That hadn’t turned out so well, because I’d forgotten to bring myself any provisions. 
Yeah... not fun.

“What about Tanuki?” said my friend suddenly. “You can’t just leave him here.”

Surprisingly, I had already thought of this. “Oh, I’m going to ask the neighbor next door if she can watch him. We’re acquaintances, and she’s offered to watch him before.” 

Chloe nodded. “All right. Let's go bring him over."

I opened the door and we stepped outside.
It felt strange to be leaving the house without my phone - it was almost like it had become a part of me. Uncomfortable thought.

Chloe waited while I locked the door.

My neighbor was more than happy to care for Tanuki... I think she really likes cats. 
Anyway, I shouldered my backpack, put the apartment key in my pocket, and looked at Chloe.

“Are we really doing this?”

“Yes, we are,” she replied, taking a deep breath.

Then, side by side, we headed out into the busy city to find Bria.

Ahhhhh... it's so good to be back. :) Have a lovely day!
