Hans lives a modest life. Using his various sources and insights, he amasses wealth by buying and selling a variety of things. This allowed him to stay sheltered in his home. An ideal life in his mind.
It wasn't until one day he had a strange urge. Questioning his sanity he had no choice but to indulge it. One thing leads to another and now he's trapped an odd cycle, reminiscent of slavery.
This is a short story. It's very short. Adult themes but nothing explicit.
And while the story is tagged Virtual reality, there is not much 'gaming' content.
I'm focusing on "Not another zombie apocalypse game." at the moment so I consider this short story over.
