Tainy sits in his chair in the warehouse and puts on his headphones. He presses enter on the computer. A twentysomething woman lies in a bed, wires attached to her head. A monitor reads: “memory uploading.” Julieta Venegas plays piano on the sand near the mountains.
A blue monster walks across the street. A car almost runs him over. Bad Bunny dances within the blue monster. He sits on a rock and gazes at the ocean. A second twentysomething woman sits next to him. They walk together on the road and the sand. He pushes her on the swing. She disappears as they walk in his neighborhood.
He bangs his head on the wall of the tunnel and knocks over a garbage can on the sidewalk. He walks into the hospital and sits with the second twentysomething woman in bed. She smiles and places her hand on his paw as she lies in bed. A flatline occurs on Tainy’s computer and he takes off his headphones.
The twentysomething woman wanders on the beach. She asks if a fortysomething man if he’d seen a blue monster walking. The fortysomething man tells her the blue monster hasn’t been around in a year. She slumps her shoulders and continues to walk. There was nothing else for her to do.
She remembers the blue monster as kind and honest. He wouldn’t let her pass alone. She spots a twentysomething woman with metal features and says it’s so nice to meet them. The twentysomething woman side-eyes her and walks into line.
Sweat beading down her forehead, she continues to dance. She wasn’t even tired. The human version of her would’ve been home, sleeping on the couch. An electrical shock moves through her as she sees a thirtysomething man standing at the bar. As she talks with him, she realizes he was like her and assures him she’s a friend. They talk about their lives. She tells him about the blue monster and says she hopes to see him again. The thirtysomething man says he can’t hear and fades. She closes her eyes and weeps in the bar. In the bathroom, she dries her eyes and starts to search for him. She calls out for help and demands to know about the others. There had to be a way to save him.
