The Speed of Dream

“It’s literally unbelievable how fast I can run.”

“Uh huh. Sure. Are you as fast as a car?”

“I’m faster than that.”

“As fast as a jet?”

“Faster than that.”

“As fast as Usain Bolt?”

“Faster than that.”

“Pfff. Maybe in your dreams.”

“…Isn’t that what we were talking about?”

This story was based on the TypeTrigger prompt “faster than that.”

Kraig drove off the lot with the fastest street-legal sports car available, the Chevrolexus Landjet XII, and he felt good about it.

His wife wasn’t quite so enthusiastic.

The problem wasn’t that it was unsafe or expensive: it was just impractical, in 2049, to drive a car on the ground.
