FICTION: VIRTUALLY TRUE

SUMMARY

The story is a science fiction and the story line is very difficult to believe but it is virtually true or at least it may be true in near future.

The narrator of the story, a young child named Michael, comes across a news item related to miraculous recovery of a boy, named Sebastian, to life from the state of coma.

The narrator is puzzled as he believes that he has met Michael somewhere.

He recalls that he has met him while playing different ‘psycho drive games’, he knows him to be a computer character so how can that computer character ‘Michael’ be a real man.

The narrator also recalls that his computer ‘nutty’ dad had brought several psycho-drive computer games a few months back and it was in those games like- Wild west, Dragon quest, Jailbreak and War Zone that he had met this boy requesting him to rescue him.

The narrator is also reminded of the fact that he could not rescue the boy in different computer games as he was not allowed to control the games.

He again recalls that while he was attempting ‘War Zone’, he could rescue the computer character named Sebastian the previous day.

The narrator finds everything mysterious about Sebastian and his recovery.

He tries to unfold the mystery by surfing the internet and finally his curiosity is addressed.

The narrator comes to know that Sebastian is a real character and his memory had got transported to the computer memory of his lap top on which he was playing the same psycho-drive games when an accident took place and when the narrator found the same games from a computer fair he came across Sebastian Shultz- the computer character.

He realises that by cracking the last psycho-drive game War Zone, actually he has been able to bring out Sebastian from the state of ‘coma’.

The mystery is unfolded for the narrator and he receives a mail from the real Sebastian who thanks him for rescuing him and wishes to meet him.
