Avatar Secrets

CHAPTER 1: CHANGE
An Unexpected Turn of Events

Themes: Entering the virtual world for the first time and creating an avatar.

After learning that her mother is sick, Ramona movies back to the family home. She leaves behind a great job in New York City and a great boyfriend, who just days later breaks up with her — right when she needs him the most. Stuck at home and dealing with the breakup, Ramona ventures online and into the world of MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games). There, she creates an avatar — a healer named ‘Tristanova’. Outside, she hears the sounds of families laughing at the beach, and questions her decision to stay inside, logged into the game world. But in this moment, the virtual world offers the promise of something that is missing from her life.
