A joyride has a different meaning in the future.

Jamie has played every VR car simulation he has ever come across, but the cars in VR are nothing like the ones on the road. VR doesn’t have autopilot, and rumbles with a gas engine, something that’s been harder to come by. He has never been able to sit in a real car, feel the rumble, or smell the exhaust. He’d give almost anything if he could.

Maybe if he snuck into Mr Millen’s old abandoned shed there might be something waiting for him. But there’s a price. There’s always a price.

A short story about exploration, and the excitement of finding something awesome hidden in the shadows. And maybe a touch of nostalgia for what came before us.
