Back in the days of combustion engines, when individuals who hooked up in Cyberia, there were the pesky, often-expensive details of traveling in various vehicles to connect with the other person physically. Things called cars, trains, planes, buses, Ubers, and hovercrafts.
Since the development of PlasmaTran (i.e. plasmatronic wave transmission) it was a matter of pushing the diamond-shaped key on the keyboard. The webcam lens shot out a pulsing lime green light that one simply stepped into and was instantaneously sent to the requested destination.
Some individuals took their time in getting to know others for days/weeks/months before reaching for the diamond, but there will always be Tinderites who go for the Mr./Miss Right Now. But who wants a virtual stranger popping into your house? All hotels have rooms now set up with untraceable PlasmaTran wifi for Tinderites.

Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a relatively short flash fiction piece inspired by the photo. While there are no definitive style or word limits, I suggest trying to keep your posts to under 300 words.
