Act 2 Scene 5
Sim: “Alright, do you remember where the others said they were going?”
Lisonse: “Santi at Joe’s. Ted at the Copy Center. Rob at a sandwich shop. Something about fruit. Where’s the closest one?”
Sim: “Unfortunately, we need to visit another directory.”
There is the faint sound of police car sirens in the distance.
Lisonse climbs back down and looks for Joe’s, Copy Center, and any sandwich shops close to fruit shops.
The Copy Center is closest. Lisonse climbs back up and begins running across building tops.
Act 2 Scene 4
Lisonse is traveling across the roof tops, doing some minor damage because of speed. After a while he stops.
Sim: “Did not expect that.”
Lisonse: “Why could I talk to her?”
Lisonse looks at her.
Sim: “Fair enough. Brainwashing? You got a significant amount of pre-learning and learned an insignificant amount of stuff.”
Lisonse: “This complicates things. Hold on.”
Lisonse drops down and hops back up with a dirty piece of paper and a broken red crayon. He places it on the roof and writes, “the crayon is
Act 2 Scene 3
Lisonse lands on the roof top and looks around.
Lisonse: “This is it, I think. How do we find her?”
Sim: “Find an open window and we’ll start from there.”
Lisonse finds one , looks in, and crawls through. He opens the door and peaks quickly. There are a few people at the end of the hall talking. He closes the door and looks around the office. Lisonse checks through the phone list and find the reporters’ name and number. He dials it.
Reporter1: “Hello Tracy.”
Lisonse: “Can I talk to you in my office?”
Reporter1: “You’re not Tracy.”

Night approaches when Lisonse enters slowly. He keeps to the walls. He peeks around the corner, seeing public cameras.
Sim: “There’s less chance of being spotted higher up.”
Lisonse jumps a significant distance before quickly climbing the rest of the way up.
Sim: “You’re not as heavy I’d imagine.”
Lisonse: “Thanks, I try to keep my figure.”
Sim looks at him.
Lisosnse: “After the whole ‘don’t ask what you know’, you kinda walked right into that one. If it’d been super heavy or something, it’ve probably broken. I get it.”
Act 2 Scene 1
Lisonse is running very fast through the woods and breathing very hard.
Lisonse screeches to a halt and tries to catch his breath.
Sim: “We need to think about this. Also, stop breathing.”
Lisonse: “I hardly think that’s going to help the situation.”
Sim: “This isn’t your body and you’re not actually breathing. You’re just making noise and pushing your chest in and out. It’s loud and annoying. Stop.”
Lisonse stops for a moment, then restarts.
Lisonse: “It’s an uncomfortable feeling. I’ll just be quite.”
Act 1 Scene 24
Lisonse wakes up. He takes out his cell phone, switches it to voice record mode, and puts it back in his jacket pocket. Lisonse finds Mr.Walson in the same room as last time.
Mr.Walson: “Ready to have your mind blown?”
Lisonse: “I guess.”
Mr.Walson takes Lisonse down the hall and into an elevator. Once they exit, they walk down another hall with a display.
Act1 Scene 23
Mr.Walson: “You’re early. Something up? I thought I heard you talking to someone.”
Lisonse: “Going over tactical stuff.”
Mr.Walson: “Is everything in order?”
Lisonse: “I think so.”
Mr.Walson: “You seem kinda down. Still sad over the little dead simulation girl thing?””
Mr.Walson: “Alright. That’s good; I wouldn’t have known how to deal with orphan stuff.”
Lisonse: “You know it’s actually been a while since I’ve thought about them.”
Act 1 Scene 22
Lisonse arrives at the facility and goes in the Simulation Room. He loads the stealth program and puts the helmet on. He follows the prior route and eventually finds simulation Sim. She screams and sets off the alarm and armed men burst into the room.
Lisonse: “I'm sorry I killed you last time.”
The men aim at him and fire. Lisonse takes off the helmet to find Sim standing beside him.
Lisonse: “Figured that wouldn't work.”
Sim: “I'm only based on her.”
Lisonse: “So I’m just stuck with you?”

Lisonse wakes up in the tub. After peeking from the curtain, he walks out, slips on his vomit, and hits his head on the tub. He gets up and rinses his mouth out.
He checks the clock. It's only 4:30 AM. Lisonse showers again, cleans off his tooth brush, and brushes his teeth. Then he cleans up the mess from earlier and dresses himself. He opens the refrigerator while making sure he's looking over door. Lisonse constantly looks in all directions as he eats breakfast. The clock reads 7:00AM. After hitting the rest room, he looks around the corners and then grabs his bike.
Act 1 Scene 20
Lisonse jumps and falls off bed.
Sim: “You knew you were predisposed for VR addiction and went in anyways.”
Lisonse: “You’re not real.”
Sim: “That’s hardly a factor.”
Lisonse: “I'm ignoring you.”
Sim: “Ignoring yourself?”
Lisonse: “No, I’m ignoring you.”
Sim: “It's not ignoring if you reply.”
Lisonse: “I'm ignoring you after this reply.”
Lisonse: “I’m …”
Lisonse glares at Sim, and then
closes his eyes to find himself alone. Lisonse wakes to the sound of his alarm clock.
