Simular Beings

In a predacious, corporate world of advanced cybernetics, the life of a young boy is put to the test. What kind of test?

A Turing test.

And the only reason being that he was born within the confines of a simulated reality.

His plan is to escape. But escape isn’t all that easy within a world where anything is possible. Especially not when his examiner is the all-seeing creator. And while he suffers through it all, a burning question starts to smolder within his young mind—why does he have to go through with this in the first place?

Little does he know… escape is the least of his concerns.

Um, hello. Since I'm running out of time for the contest, I'll be posting two chapters daily until the end of my story.

Also, the cover art's been done by my friend, @_jamslee. Check him out! Seriously!
