Extract of a Élode ~ Aeterna text

Since this is an extract from a work in progress, it's possible that some changes will occur in the meantime.

"The only personn sitting in front of you is a teenager wearing a red bob hat, a black sleeveless jacket and a wide black pants with pockets. Under the jacket, a white T-shirt sports the initials of the last trendy band : I.K.

He seems to watch a clip on a holographic screen projected by two metal bars. With one glance, you know that his device is one of the latest ones compatible with the Gen'Com, the futuristic-looking earbud in his left ear.

In fact, the teenager is holding it horizontally, almost on his lap, one hand holding only the left bar, letting the other one in the air thanks to the "current" between them. The secondary projectors have taken over and display now the 3D silhouette of an exotic woman dancer, which seems to dance on the "flat screen" created by the first projectors.

The quality of the hologram is far from perfect. Its color is dull while the contours flicker from time to time due to the imperfect technology. Still, the illusion is pretty convincing thanks to the volume effect.

Far from worrying about the other passagers, exhausted by a long day of work, the young man has put the sound of the "video" – the last I.K clip – loud enough to be heard across the whole wagon.

You decide to:

  • Enjoy the music. I also love this band!
  • Do nothing. It's late, there's only thirty minutes left before my arrival and I don't want to get in trouble. Hopefully, he will get out at the next station.
  • Why should I worry about a guy like that? Let him listen his bloody music.
  • Ask him to use his Gen'Com as a earbud, politely but firmly.
  • Ask him to use his Gen'Com as a earbud, shyly.
  • Find the best cutting remark to throw. Let's see who can get more on the other's nerves.
  • Diplomacy? Who cares about diplomacy with that kind of guy! I ask him bluntly to turn off his screen or to use his earbud.
  • Turn off mercilessly his screen. There are people trying to rest here!
  • Get up and punch him in the face."
