I’ve been starring into the space for a split of a second … maybe …
i really cannot tell
holding on to the emptiness in front of me
then I felt the gravity pulling me back towards the surface
my heart sank like a stone and that’s probably when I was pulled towards the automated recovery unit.
i assume it must have arrived after being alerted by the surge in power usage caused by the contact with the defensive layer
no i certainly did not call for it nor asked for assistance
the next thing I was crouching with my hands on the floor and vomiting violently …
the medical staff was already there although i don’t remember seeing them
I don’t remember the exact time but it should be within my log files.
yes I aproved access to all my files and my primary interface.
no I don’t know who was on the rescue team or what model of the construct was used.
I remember blond female avatar but that must have been because I was still hooked to my gear and since it is via patch i was still fully on-line.
no I can’t
yes i do. i still feel a bit shaken when i switch on the full sensory interface but i am fine to conduct the work without any further accidents.
I even felt a touch of hope i thought she’s going to be okay … and then I realised she was gone.
i let her slip.
i couldn’t hold on to her and she just … let go
and i knew i have nothing left of her
not a single bit of live data will ever reach me again
nor i will ever be able to trace her.
this was the end
the archive and my memory is all that I have left and I knew all too well i will have to remove most of it for my own sake soon
I felt …
I really can’t describe it ….
no, i cannot. I really only remember my hand pointing into the darkness
trying to touch her but she wasn’t there anymore
