Sneak Peak at ~Finding Home~ By: Beth Wright

Main Character is Georgia. Georgia's father finds an epic gaming computer for sale at the local flea market. He was told the couples son moved out unexpected after his father yelled at him about all his gaming he has been doing lately. He decides to buy it for Georgia. They take it home and hook it up. Deciding instantly, she wants to see what the gamer world is made of and what all of the excitement is about, Georgia turns it on. The computer starts to ask her questions, then does some odd things. Things turn for a wild loop when the computer takes on a mind of it's own and portals Georgia not into the computer itself..............but into an online multiplayer game.
Now Georgia is trapped within the game as a mage character. She is now learning how to play games, but not in the way she thought she would be. Game on! The computer throws her into different character bodies of her own and shows her how to survive and make new online friends. Things start to go crazy, wild, darker and even somewhat romantic as she starts to meet characters who have an unusual gamer tag just like hers....(One the computer created for her. Which at first none of them even think about it.) Who are these gamers?? Are they trapped in the game too? How many have this computer captured, and how will she ever get out????
Bending over to examine the dead chicken, she finds no way to take the liver without cutting it open. As she lifts the wing up to look at it's side, something happens, but she is not sure what happened. It's just a knowing feeling. Like she has done something right, but what did she do? Standing back up to stare down at the dead bird, a feeling of accomplishment covers her thoughts. Why? All of a sudden the dead chicken vanishes into thin air. What?! No, wait, I didn't get to get the liver yet?!?!?! OH MY GOD!!! How am I ever going to get this quest done if the chickens vanish before I can take their livers?!

Fine! I guess I just have to find another chicken. This is becoming more of a challenge then I think it should be. Searching around her, she soon notices another chicken. This time the chicken was standing near a small stream. Busy pecking at the dirt near the water he didn't realize Georgia was aiming her fire bolt right at him. With a fast flick of the wrist, her bolt shoots out across the ground and strikes it target. “Yes!” I think I'm getting the hang of this.

Excitement gone and anger building by the minute. Georgia watches as the fifteenth dead chicken vanishes before her eyes. “Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong here!”

A very faint touch makes her jump and turn to see who the hand belongs to. To her surprise it is not another hot male character, but a very gorgeous female character. Great! Now the female characters are going to be hot as well! What else does this game have in store for me, and when the hell am I going to wake up?!?! The beautiful silver-haired elven woman smiles at her before asking, “Do you need help?”

Amazed by what she is seeing has Georgia speechless. After a few silent minutes, she finally gains her words and whispers in a hushed voice, “I can see your name above your head...” Still amazed by this finding, she starts to look around for other characters to see if they too have their names above their heads and she just never noticed it till now. Sadly no one was in sight, except this one sexy woman. Now what? Staring back at the beautiful woman, she finally asks, “How do I get a liver?” Then realizes how dumb that sounded. She starts to babble on some more, “I mean from them.” Yup and of course, no chicken in sight, “I mean from............”
The silver-haired woman chuckles softly as she lightly grabs Georgia's arm, “I know what you mean.” Her eyes twinkle with beautiful shades of violet as she speaks again, “You have all ten chicken livers in your inventory.”

What! Inventory, where is my inventory? Searching her back for a bag she ends up with nothing in sight. As her eyes scan her dress she finally notices a small bag hanging from her belt on her right side. No way, where did that come from? Touching the small bag she starts to wonder if that was what is considered her inventory. As she opens the bag slowly she soon horrifically discovers. Yup, this has to be my inventory, “Ewww, gross! There is blood and chicken parts in my bag.” Dancing around with her bloody fingertips waving in the air, she screams out, “This is the grossest thing ever.”
The beautiful female is now laughing out loud. Georgia stops and looks to her as the woman states, “Don't worry about it. Just turn in the quest and sell the other stuff for some spending money. You probably have some armor and possibly some low level weapons in there as well. All you have to do is search your bag.”
“I am not touching anything in that bag ever again. I do not want chicken blood all over me.”

“Then turn in the quest first. Once all of the chicken livers are gone, go and sell the other chicken parts.” With a big smile she finishes off by saying, “Then your bag will be clean of all chicken stuff.”

Does it really work that way? One way to find out I guess. Georgia slowly edges closer to the man at the tower. As she nears him, her eyes take notice of his name above his head. With a sarcastic twist to her words, she tells him, “I have your disgusting chicken livers. Can I have my reward now?”

As his eyes connect with Georgia's, he starts to talk, “Thanks for all of the help, AnnieGMRfive, here is your reward.” Before she can even ask the question within her mind, he states, “Thomas needs your aid as well. Report to him for your next quest.” Then silence as he turns to stare at nothing.
