The 7 entries were all on point but so very varied, I’m impressed by the different take everyone had on my prompt. It’s hard to narrow my selections down, but I can only pick 2.  My favourites are both fiction, although I learned a lot from the thought-provoking posts.

Real Virtual Dreamers by Alex Gibbons

In this world he has perfect blue eyes that have all the expensive extras man can buy.

He holds his hands out as wide as my chest, then puts one flat on his desk and raises the other to my neck height. “About yay big?”


Over to May…
