"Hey mister, are you planning to stare at it the whole day? Are you buying it or not? Your expressions happen to scare away my customers!" shouted the shopkeeper.
I turned my head and stared at him, keeping my facial expressions, "How much is this again?"
He stepped back as if I had startled him and said, "That will be $1300."
$1300 eh? That's WAY too expensive, but the game itself seemed to worth it, I couldn't make up my mind…
An hour later...
"Thank you for purchasing the product, have a nice day!"
Yup, I finally got it. Time to head home... Oh crap, it's six already! Better hurry home!
Allow me to introduce myself; I'm Jaycee, Jaycee Lockheart. I have twin sister, Violet. We both study in Lagoona School, an ordinary secondary school. Since my parents have to work overseas, Violet was put in charge of the house (which I don't really agree with since I'm older than her). But anyway, at least she does all the housework. Violet can be quite frightening; there was this time when I accidentally stepped on her most favourite plushie, she zipped me in her human-sized plushie, which was her last birthday present, for the next twenty-four hours.
*RING*, as I pressed the doorbell.
The door opened and revealed a teenage girl in an apron.
"You're late, what have you got to say for your... Hey, wuzzat?" said Violet.
"... Are you seeing things? You must be out of your... Oi, give it back!"
Violet tore open the bag, which she snatched earlier and revealed a game console.
"What's the meaning of this? Mom and Dad are out there working for our fees and yet you waste money on this piece of junk?"
"Wait... Calm down, trust me, it does worth its price."
"Calm down?! How can I possibly calm down? Just you wait when I tell Mom about this."
"Wait, WAIT! Let me explain after dinner, okay?"
"No. Let's hear about it and I'll decide if you worth your dinner. Get in."
"You study Latin right?" I asked. "Tell me what somnium means." I asked as we walked towards the living room.
"Precisely. This machine over here exchanges electrical impulses, this connects you to the MMORPG world, which means you could play the game when you are asleep!" I showed her the box.
"But wouldn't you need to stick on wires to play it? Brain waves are pretty weak you know..."
"True, but scientists nowadays had made this breakthrough." I smiled as I patted on the console box. "It is quite sensitive with electromagnetic waves and is able to filter out which one's your brain wave."
"So it's wireless?"
"Considering you could now charge your phones wirelessly, I don't see why it isn't." I looked at Violet, her eyes seemed to be filled with joy and enthusiasm, I'd never seen her like this since dad and mum were away from work. It was funny 'cuz she's using a grin to cover her expressions, her eyes gave away everything. "Playing tonight?" I suggested
"I don't see why not?"
