Holographic women are all the rage. Easier than humans to be around. No talking back or gorging on chocolates to ruin their figures.

Only costs a thousand a minute, for a rich guy like me it's nothing. Won't be long before the price will be cheap so everyone will have them.

Dating agencies will be redundant as everyone will have their own virtual mate, eager to please. With the headgear it feels like you are with a real live woman.

Today I had a shock. Mirabelle somehow changed into a man, mistake in the software I guess, but until much later I didn't seem to notice.

Enjoyed it.

Wondering what that means.

Should I be worried?

Trying not to hope that one day soon the software will malfunction again.

Trying not to feel guilty.

that was awesome! Really well written, paints a bleak picture of the future. Love the use of imagery in describing third paragraph. Last line hits the reader where it hurts.

Six minute story is brilliant as a daily mental excercise to write on a variety of topics. It involves a lot of trial and error before I finish in the given time.

I am often surprised which of my stories receive the most views, often those I planned to delete.
