Complicated (1/22)

An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o


How did I reach this point? My life has become complicated in the last few months.

Wow. Understatement of epic proportions.

And I have no one to talk to about it. I could probably go to a psychiatrist about it, but that would mean admitting that I'm... broken. I'm not. Am I?

I met her online, through a game. I immediately thought she was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I became enchanted. Then obses...

No! It's not an obsession. Sure, I have a few pictures of her. A few dozen. Hundred. Fine, my folder is pushing 3 gig. I've memorized every line and curve of the face. Her brilliant blue eyes, long black hair, and those dimples!.

And it's not like I've spent hours and hours looking for every last scrap of information I could find on her. It was barely 2. Or 3, I can't remember.

The worst part of it, though, is this. I'm married. Happily. My wife 'gets' me, for the most part. But...

How do I tell her that I'm in love with someone else?

And how do I explain that my love doesn't really exist?

Fantasy. Fantasy loves only help enhance the reality.

What if she DID exist?

Here's the conversation I picture between the main character and his wife.

Wife: How old is she?

MC: Well, officially, she's 19, but...

W: 19?! You're leaving me for a teenager?!

MC: Well, not quite, because she was only added in with the March 15th patch, so...

W: Wait... What?

Wow the main character should definitely see a therapist. Great piece - I love how you introduce an entire sci-fi universe through this tiny bit of introspection. I'd read a sequel for sure (hint hint)

Oh, yes, Abby. This boy definitely needs help. XD Sure, I bet most people have developed a crush on a fictional character at some point or other in their lives, but this is... a tad extreme. ;-)
