The Best Ghosts 24/7

State Fair - Puyallup, WA

PUYALLUP, WA - He'd read that fifty-one percent of The Fairground VR population are ghosts - the oldest accounts have been dead for a decade. When Kara went offline, her perfect ghost just kept on riding the carousel and eating pink cotton candy.

A unique sunset plays every hundred-eighty minutes. In blue hours, he'd log-in to take her slight hand and to walk together. He'd wave to her there on the carousel. Then she would lead him to the fireworks show, or to the piglet race sometimes.

If she were alive, maybe she'd turn tired of all this - too old for neon-glow tiaras, teacup rides, and piglets. Here her silent enthusiasm for the fair, and for him, is fixed. For that, he feels fortunate.
