Jonathan Grimshaw: Space Tourist
|Jonathan Grimshaw: Space Tourist|
How It Begins
You have been lucky enought to win one of 5 luxury cabins on the Earth's first Space Cruiser the Cittian. This will be all-expenses paid, in a luxury cabin, with three Michelin-starred meals every day. It should be the best 13 weeks of your life.
After arriving you trek through the bowels of the ship, searching for your room. Plush corridors give way to slightly less plush corridors which in turn give way to much less plush corridors and then, finally, you're there. Room B015. You turn the key in the lock, and the door swings open.
After switching on the light you find that the room is lit by the glow of a single low-watt lightbulb. Wooden floorboards poke through the threadbare carpet, and the ramshackle furniture looks like it has been put together from the leftover trimmings of other, even more ramshackle furniture. A thin blanket covers the single bed wedged in the corner of the room.
The door shuts firmly behind you. There is a loud clacking as the door locks itself, trapping you in the room. The ship lurches suddenly, and you stumble against a wall.
