Tynan was still tinkering with the G-phone that he pried apart when Laura knocked on his door. Even after meeting Laura in person and getting her parents' approval to settle down together, the programmer didn't want to give up on restoring the G-phone. He wanted to find clues to the mysterious system that trapped Laura's spirit and Laura didn't stop him. She was also curious and that system hadn't been a lie, no matter how ridiculous it sounded. In the event that Tynan still couldn't find anything from the phone, they decided to still keep it for memories. For others, their first meeting could be from an online site or a commonplace but for them, it was through this particular phone."I have your papers ready for signing," she told him in an all too innocent voice. Tynan didn't suspect anything out of the ordinary and the dirt biker felt her heart racing.It wa
It took Laura two weeks with the help of her mother to get her father's approval for her to live together with Tynan. Tynan didn't know if it was a good or bad thing that he had to move apartments again to somewhere of Mr Helvig's choosing. That was not up for compromise and Tynan wasn't allowed to pay a single cent for the rent. Laura didn't have the heart to tell her unofficial husband that he couldn't pay rent because this was a building that her family owned.It was difficult to gain her father's approval to live together but Mrs Helvig was terrifying when she wanted to be. After her mother's intervention, Mr Helvig reluctantly agreed but he was still petty and claimed that he had the final say to where they were going to live. As a doting father, he ensured that it was the best location with the best view and security that his precious daughter would enjoy. Also, the petty CEO made sure to include two
The tension at dinner made Mr Helvig and Tynan very meek. With every scraping sound of the knife, they swallowed hard. Mrs Helvig asked if any of them wanted a second helping of mashed potatoes when she noticed how neither of them touched the chicken. In fact, they were sitting rather stiffly as Laura stabbed at her food with more force than required.Laura knew what she was doing. It felt slightly childish to behave in this manner but she was mad. How could her father and Tynan do this to her?! If it wasn't for her mother, she would have spent hours chewing them out for not telling her anything. Imagine if she never met Tynan by chance today, would her father have kept Tynan away forever? Also, why didn't her silly husband bypass her parents to look for her? Surely it wouldn't be that difficult, right?Mrs Helvig said nothing and only watched as her daughter t
Tough. Papa Helvig was a tough nut to convince and crack.Ever since Tynan flew to Berlin and found a place to settle down, he had been fighting an invisible wall. The only thing standing in his way between him and his wife was her father. True, they might have skipped a few steps to get to where they were in the relationship. However, Tynan felt wronged. Why did her father think that he was a creepy stalker when he had evidence that he knew her on a personal level that stalkers wouldn't?Mrs Helvig found the passive-aggressive battle between her husband and her future son-in-law amusing. Call it a woman's intuition but she had a feeling that Tynan wasn't lying. In fact, she didn't think he was a stalker even though it unnerved her slightly by how much he knew their baby girl. It wouldn't hurt to let him see Laura but her husband was dead set against it. Laura'
Everything felt unfamiliar to her, including herself. The first thing she felt when she opened her eyes was a strange and uncomfortable sense of heaviness. She couldn't move and nothing made sense. She wanted to cry or scream or do something but everything was too blurry and she didn't have the strength. The only thing on her mind was how awfully annoying the sound of beeping beside her felt before she was pulled back to the darkness.The second time Laura awoke, she heard the continuous buzz by her ear that she couldn't get rid of. She was still unable to move anything but at least now, she could see something other than a painfully bright stab to her eyes. There were blobs of colours that moved even if she couldn't understand what they were saying. This time, she was awake for a slightly longer time and she heard more things like the sounds of people walking and various machines before she fell back asle
This time, there was no grand farewell party or well wishes for his future endeavours. The team he had been working with finally launched the game and the sales department were busy monitoring the download figures. Within the first twenty-four hours, they should be able to tell if the game would be well received within the community but by that time, Tynan wouldn't be around to celebrate."You're going?" his boss of half a year asked and Tynan smiled. His desk was cleaned and he only had one small briefcase with him to clear out the things in his locker. He dropped the keys by his boss' table and signed the papers."Yes. I'm leaving."The Creative Director sighed. It wasn't a rare thing that talented people left as quickly as they came. Tynan was exceptional at his job and while it was a huge loss for Lizard Games,
The second phase for the game project was starting and Tynan couldn't afford to take any leave for his honeymoon after the unofficial wedding, not that Laura minded. In fact, the e-ghost seemed to already know that her time was approaching. As suddenly as she came into Tynan's life, she left.For two whole days, Tynan didn't realise that Laura was gone. He was busy with work and only realised that his wife wasn't responding when he tried to offer her his lunch. Laura was offline and this time, there was a strange silent calmness that came over Tynan. His mind blanked out and everything became white noise as if he had forgotten everything he once knew. The world seemed to lack colours, the job seemed to lack meaning, his apartment seemed to be missing a person."Is there something wrong?" his project teammate asked.
Two weeks. Tynan was so relieved that she had returned online and cried when she did. He didn't care if he was at work, he was just so relieved that Laura was back. His colleagues gave him worried looks but Tynan told them he was fine. The game project director looked a lot better after he cried and nobody could understand why. They just left him as he was because all geniuses had some kind of quirk. It was better to leave them to their devices and not judge them. After all, Tynan was very good at what he did at work so what he did in his private time was no concern of theirs.Laura felt as if she just woke up from a very long dream. She didn't know how much time had passed since she last saw Tynan and her memories were hazy at best. She no longer remembered a lot of things but the e-ghost knew that she was starting to fade. This might just be her limits. Who knew if she would be able to wake up the next t
