30 Stories in 30 Days #7 – “Give it Time”

Give it Time


As Champ67 selected which of the cows in his herd would be transferred to his T-Rex pen, he heard a buzz.  It took him a moment to realize it was the bell to his virtual door.  Who the hell still uses doors? he wondered.  In a blink he was at his door, which open to reveal the avatars of two, plain women.  “Who are you?” Champ67 asked.

The one on the left smiled and replied, “I am Gamma 015282, and this is Beta 005879.  We are here to ask if you’ve ever considered joining the Humbold Hive Mind?”

“Ah, no.”

Before the two could say anything else, Champ67 added, “And no thanks.” He then shut the door on them.


Far away – in the real world – James Rivkin, aka Champ67, shivered in his VR suit.

  1. This idea came to me just as I went to bed the other night. At first I thought I would need to work out their spiel about all the benefits of joining the hive mind, but then I was a few stories behind and I wanted to do something quick. So I figured out how to make this one nice and short.
