Everything suddenly goes black. Alani knows that someone hat someday told her what to do in case of a system failure. At least she assumes this is a system failure as it had never occurred before. Her hands fly about uselessly and she tries to remember the steps to exit the VR* even though she can’t imagine what lies outside of it. Her finger finally finds the button and she presses it slowly while drawing her mind out of the connection between user and interface. There is a high screeching sound. Light floods her vision. Reality is actually quite disappointing.
* VR = virtual reality, falls das nicht klar ist
