Hello. Is anyone out there? It’s been a while. I thought I’d try and connect.

Hello. I hope everybody can read my posts. I think maybe I need a tech upgrade.

Hi. Not much happening around here. It’s quiet. Not much to share.

Hello. Hello out there. I wish someone would answer. I’m stuck here with no one to talk to. I’m lonely.

Scrolled though some news today. Didn’t like it. It’s all so negative. I want to be positive. Things will get better.

I just want someone to talk to me. Anyone? Maybe I should post a cat video. Everybody loves cat videos.

Did you see it? Did you see the video I posted?

I guess nobody liked the video? Oh well. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try again.

Some days it’s so bad. This silence. The quiet. Hello? Is anybody there? Please reply.

Somebody answer me! You can’t all be gone! Can you?

It didn’t turn out like I thought. This wasn’t how it was supposed to be. I wasn’t supposed to be alone! It was supposed to fix everything! But now… It hurts. It never stops. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could talk to someone. Please, someone talk to me! SOMEBODY SAY SOMETHING! MAKE IT STOP HURTING! ANSWER ME!

Sorry if I got a little extreme. It’s just weird, you know. Being alone. I wish I hadn’t done it now. But, how could I know? They told me it would be fine. They lied.

Maybe I should stop pretending. Things aren’t going to get better. No one is going to answer me.

Why do I feel guilty? It was just a way not to die. I was sixteen. I didn’t want to die.

An experiment they said. New tech. AI interface and all that crap. Real sci-fi movie stuff. Upload my consciousness into a computer. Ground-breaking. I didn’t care. I did it because I didn’t want to be sick anymore. I didn’t want to die.

It was cool at first. Weird, but cool. I was glad I did it. Having my mind inside a computer was the coolest thing in the world. Until.

How was I to know? How was I to know the world would end?

Hello. Is anybody out there?

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.
