December 31st, 1949, everyone is drinking and having fun preparing themselves for a New year. But for Mary it was different, she got engaged to her love of her life Alex Adams. Alex was the ideal average white man at the time. He is a charming, loving, handsome, young man. A man every woman will die for. Spending the New Year’s Eve with the neighborhood and with her fiancé Alex. He was such a gentleman.
“Hey Mary and Alex come over here the countdown is about to start,” said Georgia. Since it was such a small neighborhood there weren’t as much people as expected. “5, 4, 3, 2,1 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!” Everyone shouted . Kisses and hugs were shared around. And as the New Year has just begun a new chapter was heading beyond everyone’s life.
It was the morning of the New year. Mary woke up bright and early to make some breakfast for Alex. Alex walked in once Mary was done packing his lunch . “Why you look handsome as usual honey” Said Mary. “ Thank you, my love,” replied Alex. He sat down and ate the breakfast Mary made for him. “Then you love breakfast was lovely, but I have to go to work now boss said it’s a big day today,” said Alex. “Alright have fun at work today and be safe” replied Mary. Alex was heading out the door leaving for work with the rest of the Mens in the neighborhood and head to the same job.
As then Mens left for work all the wives began to tidy up the house and make dinner while their husband went to work. Mary began to do her job as an average household wife. She began to play Elvis on her record player as she cleaned up her house and prepared dinner for Alex.
While cleaning the windows Mary started to have trouble breathing. All of a sudden she sees the wall coming closer to her slowly. They came closer and closer by the second crushing Mary almost to her death. Mary started to panic and screaming for help gasping for air. No one was coming. Was this an end to Mary?
Georgia busted through the door shouting “MARY ! MARY!”. Georgia followed Mary’s scream. “ MARY I’M HER-.” Georgia took a pause. She sees Mary leaning towards the window. She looked are here confused . “Uhm what are you doing sweetie” asked Georgia. Mary looked at her frantically . “The wall…. It almost crushed me to death…it was coming towards me crushing me against to the window with no escape.” replied Mary
Georgia gave Mary are concerned look .“ Mary you were probably just got dizzy from the cleaning products. Because the wall is still in the same spot,” said Georgia. “ You’re right Georgia I will get some fresh air” replied Mary. They gave each other a hug and said goodbye. Mary decided to take a break and catch the bus and to get some fresh air.
She got on the bus . “ Where are you heading to young lady?” ask the bus driver. “Oh nowhere. Would you mind just driving me around? I just wanted to get some fresh air.” Replied Mary. “of course young lady” replied the bus driver And the bus took off. Everything was going well. Mary is relaxed and breathing the fresh air, which makes her feel a lot better. Everything was going perfectly well until Mary looked being her shoulder and sees a plane come crashing down high speed with a huge explosion “Hey hey stop the bus stop the bus!” shouted Mary. The driver slammed on his brakes causing Mary to fall over. “ My goodness lady are you insane!” shouted the bus driver. “ Did you not just see the plane crash and hear the huge explosion!” Shouted Mary at the driver. “ What are you talking about there are no planes in this area?” replied the furious driver. “What are you insane? I literally saw it with my own eyes. You must take me over to that area! “ Replied Mary. “ I’m sorry young lady but it’s forbidden to go over there. And look who’s talking you’re the insane one here now get off my bus” replied the furious driver. “Fine, I’ll just take myself” replied Mary. She got out of the bus and started to walk furiously towards the crash and see if anyone is alive
Mary hiked up the hills to see if there were any survivors .But when she reached to the top of the hills her mind was blown. There were no planes or there were no people. “What the heck? What is happening I swear I just saw a plane coming down.?” . As she continued to move forward until she saw a strange building labeling “no trespassing” and “hazards” signs. It was a building with advanced technology she had never seen before .Some sort of building that had some sort of network and computers.
Mary was curious and decided to look for herself. As she took a closer look she was confused. There was a lot of advanced technology there, utilized computers you may say. She tried to open the door nearby, but it was locked shut. So, she just looked through the window. As soon she looked through the window it sucked her in. Taking her visions and showing her a glimpse of the outside world. The only thing she saw was a hospital bed, and then everything went completely dark.
A voice was coming “Mary? Mary? wake up”. Mary starts to rise from the sofa to see Alex with a bouquet of flowers. “ Hey Mary, are you okay?” asked Alex. Mary was so confused to question how the hell she ended up on the sofa. Were the events that happened just a dream? “ Yeah, sorry I just had the strangest dream but it felt so real.” Replied Mary. Alex handed her the bouquet of flowers and gave her a peck on her head. “Let’s prepare dinner together love,” said Alex. Mary gave a smile to Alex “of course” replied Mary.
After a lovely dinner it was late, and they went to bed. Alex passed out asleep while Mary struggled to sleep after that terrible “dream”. Mary couldn’t concentrate and decided for herself to take a night walk. So she got herself ready to go on a walk. As time went by Mary started to hear strange noises coming over the hills. She wanted to take a look for herself but got told that area was restricted. But since no one was awake at the time she decided to look for herself to see why that area is restricted. As she started to hike over the hill she was in disbelief. She saw that exact same building that she saw in her dream. “Maybe it wasn’t a dream after all” she told herself. She started to head in that direction to take a closer look at the building she had dreamed about. And it had everything that she had in her dream. She tried to open the door, but it looked as expected. She saw a strange blinking thing so she decided to move closer to it. It was connected to a window. Was this a sign to look at this specific window? Either way she looked through the window and suddenly everything went dark.
“Okay everything looks great just make sure they get plenty of rest” said surgeon Mary. “Thank you, Mary you have a great night.” Replied the nurse. Mary left the hospital after a successful surgery and went home. As a women many hours as a surgeon she barleys get any relaxing time. She has arrived home and instead of seeing a clean house she sees Alex in pajamas playing video games and in a mess. “ Its 2 in the morning and you’re home late,” said Alex. This Alex is different, he is a mess, sloppy, unorganized, smelly, and not the ideal man you want to have in your life. “ The surgery was longer than I expected its not my fault” replied Mary. “Well since you’re here now I’m hungry can you make me some food pizza?” said Alex. “what no are you crazy?! I’m tired, why didn’t you order food or made some yourself?” replied Mary. “ Because I was expecting you to come early.” Replied Alex. ‘you’re crazy I’m going to bed” Alex stared at her and went to bed with her. Once they went to bed Alex handed Mary her medicine. Once she took it something was off. She began to feel dizzy and have trouble breathing next thing you know she fainted
“I’m sorry Mary but I want you to rest,” said Alex. Alex grabbed Mary and took her to his car and drove away. They arrived in an abandoned hospital and took her back. There was a strange man standing at a desk.” Alex Adams, I came here for the session” said Alex to the front man. “Room 17 they should get you guys equipped.” Replied the front desk man. Alex nodded and headed to the room to get equipped with Mary who is still passed out. “okay the time is set to 1950s as the man of the house and her being the average housewife’s correct Mr. Adams” said the scientist “yes that’s perfect” replied Alex “ Alight just get into this bed and I get you guys hooked up.” Said the scientist. The scientist starts to wrap them both into place and put all sorts of wires to them that connect to the computer which Alex has in control of. “Okay all set up the only thing I have to say is Mary has to never know about her actual life or know that this world you are entering is made up and which you get the life you always wanted for yourself and her or else you or her or both may die in both realities.” Said the scientist. Alex nodded his head as soon as the scientist began his procedure and then suddenly everything turned black.
(Back to the virtual world) Mary begins to open her eyes and got up quickly is still dark outside “It wasn’t fake it was true, this life here is virtually, Alex held me hostage in this world I can’t believe it.” Said Mary. She was in disbelief but instead of crying and being miserable she was mad and wanted to get her actual life back. To go back into her old life, she had to be inside the building but since she had nothing with her at the time she went back home and try again later.
It was 6 in the morning, the sun was rising, then the minute she entered the door Alex was standing there furious. “Where the hell have you been,” said Alex. Mary ignored him and was going back to bed. He grabbed her by the arm “ Don’t ignore me where have you been?!” Alex was being so aggressive, which has never happened before. Mary looked at Alex in eyes full of hate. “ Leave me alone I know,” said Mary. “What are you talking about?” replied Alex. “Everything! Your job, the project, and that area we are forbidden to enter!” shouted Mary. Alex couldn’t believe what he had just heard. And was silent for a minute. “ I didn’t do it just for me I did it for you for us Mary.” Said Alex. “It was my life Alex MY LIFE! You can’t just take that away from me” yelled Mary. “I didn’t take anything for you I gave you this life every day you will comeback from work exhausted and never gave me any attention!” yelled Alex. Mary had enough of Alex “ You know what were done I’m leaving goodbye” replied Mary
As Mary began to exit Alex clutched her by the waist. “No don’t leave me I need you im sorry” he began to hold her tighter causing her to have trouble breathing. “Alex- let me go… I can’t breathe.” said Mary. She looks around to make Alex let go until she spots an empty wine bottle. She tried to reach for it but was struggling but then eventually grabbed it. “Mary I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m so-”. Then suddenly everything goes dark.
There was blood dripping from the broken wine bottle. Mary has killed Alex, and this is her time to escape
“Hey what’s up with all the yelling are you guys ok-”. And before you know it Kevin, Georgia husband walked in seeing Alex dead body and Mary with a glass bottle on her hand. “What have you done Mary?” yelled Kevin. Alex grunted on his last few words “Get here she knows -” then there goes Alex last breath. Kevin just stared at Mary. The mayor knew all along about this virtual world. He was the one who created this virtual world. “So you know huh, You know what this means.” Said Kevin. He holds up a gun and before he could pull the trigger something hits him from behind causing him to fall. Who was behind him? It was Georgia. “ MARY RUN” yelled Georgia.
Mary nodded and began to sprint for her life . She was on the search by the whole neighborhood by the Mens who also know about this reality world. As she was running she managed to get into a getaway car. As she was driving as fast as she could, 5 other cars started to follow. Bumping into her car trying to grab her. Luckily there was a shortcut Mary could take. Mary takes a sharp right turn making some of the cars collide. As she was getting closer the card ran out of gas “No c’mon please why” cried Mary. At this point she got out of her car and started to make a run for it. As she was running Mary tripped over a rock rolling her ankle badly. As she lay there struggling to get up she saw 10 men in a red suit with weapons ready to take her in getting closer to her. “Oh, Mary you can’t escape from us. Give up now,” Shouted Kevin. Mary saw them even though she was in pain, she knew she had to escape this world. As she was limping the guys were nearby. “c’mon Mary think” she looked around her area. There was a big rock near the ledge about to fall over. Maybe if Mary timed it right, she might be able to squish the guys in the red suit. Mary crawled over to the rock. Even with the pain she was in she was ready to push over the rock. As soon as the guys wore beneath the rock, she pulled her best Pushing the rock. She was pushing off it so hard that her bones were sticking out of her broken ankle. Then finally the rock fell. “Mary you can’t hide from us-” shouted Kevin as the Rock crushed his army of men. Mary was relieved but in pain not being able to move her foot. She saw Keving from a distance running towards her with a weapon. “ You may have killed my guys and Alex, but you can’t escape from me” shouted Kevin in a furious look. Mary was frantic being close to the building Mary gets up and starts to limp her way up the stair to the lever. As soon as she got up the stairs, she was about to head to the lever to escape Kevin. As soon Mary was about the pull the lever Kevin comes around the corner
“So, you really thought you could escape from me” smirked Kevin. Mary was lying on the floor with pain in her foot. Kevin got closer to Mary by stepping on her broken foot. “Stop hurting me,” cried Mary. “What do you think I’m going to stop after what you done” Kevin replied. “You’re a terrible person,” cried Mary. “I don’t care, you really think you can take this away from me. I created this world so all men can work and can be in control of their life and their wife’s lifestyle,” said Kevin. “So, you did this for yourself and every man around here. Do you even care for Georgia” replied Mary while in pain.
Kevin got close to Mary face “Georgia will never know because since I’m now going to kill you, she will never find out. ‘Oh, I know everything Kevin. I know all your dirty little secrets.” Said Georgia from behind “The button by that window is the only way to go back to our life,” said Mary. “Don’t listen to her Georgia she’s being insane,” said Kevin. He went towards Georgia letting Mary’s ankle be free. Kevin was hugging Georgia telling her that it’s a lie Mary is saying. “Save it, leave me alone I’m going to Mary and help her,” said Georgia. As Georgia pushed Kevin out of the way to help out Mary but as soon, she got close to Kevin he stabbed her right in the back. “GEORGIA NO ” cried Mary. Georgia lay there on the floor dying and gasping for air. “Well sorry but since you were obeying me you must face the consequences honey. Now that’s done it’s your turn” said Kevin, As Mary starts to cry helplessly trying to reach for the lever Kevin got closer to Mary “say goodbye blond-”BANG! There was a gunshot. But the thing is that Mary was perfectly fine, who else could’ve gotten shot. Mary looked up at Kevin gasping for air falling to the ground. Georgia has shot Kevin right in the chest. “Mary goes save yourself-” and that was the last world of Georgia.
As Mary struggled to get up, she managed to get close to the window button. Mary just stared at Kevin with a face full of hate and then took a glace of Georgia dead body She crawled up to the window with the button and smashed it with a rock that was nearby and crawled in and the moment she stepped in everything went black. She was free. Her old life was back for a new start.
