|It looked kinda like this.|
I pulled into an underground parking garage and the car disappeared. Everything became slightly pixelated as well, like a late 90s PC game. There, I met a friend and an acquaintance. Let's call 'em MDK-girl and K-girl, respectively. I don't think they even know each other IRL. ╮(╯_╰)╭
Nevertheless, they were chatting amicably. I looked at K-girl and said, "I'm looking for a friend."
They laughed and MDK said to her, "Aww, guess you'll have to find your last card somewhere else." Then an alarm klaxon went off. Someone had activated the self-destruct sequence.
I went down the halls toward the elevator. There I met another friend, J-boy, dressed in a suit of European knight armor. He paused, looked at me and said, "I have to stop them" before stepping on to the lift and closing the doors.
That one was strange.
There was because an acquaintance was in it!
That hasn't happened before. It's always been strangers and friends.
No one in between.
