System Online - Shutdown
George cannot sleep, so he logs onto his computer from his home office and continues to compose code for the program he is writing for his client. The customer has requested an online system that detects deleterious bugs in software, a field that George is somewhat of a legend in. Just a few more lines of code and his script will be complete, but then suddenly, his monitor begins to flicker and black screens. George panics and smashes CTRL , ALT and DELETE to try and regain life and salvage his digital creation. Nothing happens. He tries a second time, but then the lights in his home office begin to quiver. The luminance oscillates like a lung breathing in and out excelling in speed on every swell, as the brightness increases to the point where the whole environment burns a clean, crisp white. George is blinded and feels his body being compressed into a vacuum state as his bones begin to condense to a quantum level. Silence falls as he plunges into near darkness, the only light being emitted is from a single, red blinking LED. He scans his red strobe lit surroundings with puzzling eyes. The floor is covered in unnatural digital paths that angle off between large cylindrical towers and large spikes and beads of molten metal protrude around them, like trees around a meandering river. His heart drops and he realises the strange event that happened just moments before, he has been engulfed inside his own computer. Suddenly, a deafening buzz radiates from a large central, square structure and as he looks down, the cybernated arteries beneath his feet begin to glow. He looks up, and standing in front of him is a despicable, ghastly ball of energy, it’s every existence one of complete corruption and malfeasance. A sudden sense of irony floods George’s quantum being as he is now face to face with the very bug he had been out to destroy. Error 2759 - this is system online.
