We Only Live Once, But He Got To Relive A Friendship Over And Over Again



Kang has never met Linda, his upstairs neighbour, but they got along well chatting through the ‘Old Friend’ device each room was hooked up with.

They were both widowed, quarantined in their rooms, and had plenty of time to spend.


Linda showed some interested in the Petanque, a game where two opponents try to toss a set of metal balls closest to a target.

After a game, and feeling spirited by the bonding, Kang makes his next move and suggests they meet that night.


But an unexpected system blackout sends Kang into a panic, and he tries to leave his room to find out what happened to Linda.


He arrives upstairs to find that life had thrown him a curveball, once again.
