THE ADVENTURION a sci/fi-fantasy thrill ride for boys of all ages

The Adventurion
Ebook Price: $3.88 USD. 31730 words. YA Fiction by M. R. Mathias on August 18, 2010
Fizz and Rodger, two adolescent boys, get caught up in a cutting edge, virtual reality experiment. They are thrust into the surreal Ethernet where websites and internet game worlds actually exist. A dangerous on-line dragon hunt, and a gripping space battle are but a few of the thrills they find there. Rodger pushes his luck and gets caught by ethereal aliens and Fizz tries to save the day.

Snippet
Fizz only counted up to six before the first of the bright crimson spotted antelope came leaping out of the trees to cross the stream. The creatures resembled mountain goats, but some of them had a single spiraled horn that was about a foot long sticking out from in-between their eyes. They had dirty white fur with a big splash of bright red on their backs. It looked like someone had poured a half a bucket of paint over each of them. It wasn’t paint though. It was the randomly chosen color pattern that some computer had given the species. There were dozens of them. More than that, there were hundreds of the swiftly leaping deer. They jumped alertly with their front legs drawn in and sailed twenty to thirty feet with each leaping bound. Agile and fleet, they leapt right past, and even directly over, the boys where they stood.

The passing of the huge herd of computer formed creatures sounded like an actual stampede might sound. Dan was screaming over the din to the people in the control room, “We’re okay! Do not abort yet! I repeat: DO! NOT! ABORT!”

For some reason, Rodger was pulling franticly, yanking at Dan’s belt, and shaking his head no. Fizz would have wondered more about it, but he was frozen stiff because he had just seen something big and dark out in the forest. He suddenly knew why Rodger was going crazy trying to get Dan’s attention. The herd of red and white goat-deer weren’t just running through the forest; they were being chased, or hunted. They were running away from something.

“No I didn’t see that,” Dan yelled to the control room. “I’m looking, I—”

A powerfully large harmonic roar blasted through the forest, causing all three of them to tremble with fear. It sounded like that Dolby stereo thing that they play really loudly at the beginning of movies, only this was louder and all rough and angry. It sounded again and Fizz felt the low rumbling part of the growl vibrate through his whole chest.

“Come on boys! Whatever made that sound could be dangerous!” Dan knelt between them and pulled them both into a hug. “We’re aborting in five… four…”

“There it is!” Rodger yelled.

“Three… two…”

Fizz turned to see a big, dark green, tiger-striped bear, or maybe it was an extra-furry, over sized tiger. He wasn’t really sure if it was either. All he knew was that it was big and dark with red glowing eyes. It was charging toward them now, and Fizz saw that its slobbery razor sharp teeth were as big and long as his father’s fingers.

Then, Dan said, “One. Abort!” and vanished from in between them, leaving them alone in virtuality with the raving computer evolved beast.
