Simulating Crumble: A Very Short Story

Inspired by five random words from Issue 64 of ‘mslexia’: ‘exposing’, ‘limping’, ‘simulations’,  ‘performance’ and ‘speciality’.



Simulations being her thing, her speciality, she gears herself up for the final performance. She types in a name, his name, sits back and watches.

Watches him limping towards his destination, watches him exposing himself, watches as all that is fraudulent, all that is him, is transformed into crumble.


Stepping into the virtual, she picks up a spoon, and eats.
