There was I, having a morning shower as usual, before a school day. "Modern Times has started!!" Informed my brother by yelling through the bathroom door. I was excited. It was 8.25AM, the first school bell was just 25 minutes away, and I had yet to pack my bag. I quickly opened my laptop, and navigated to Airwaysim.com, the coolest site on the net. Within moments I had found the game, and was trying to locate an airport with no-one else based at it. I had to cross some of my favourites of the list. Auckland already had 6 people based at it. I eventually found the one I wanted, and set up base. I checked the demand on it's major routes. Good, 3000 passengers a day on one route, and 2000 on another, and not another soul based at this airport.
So with everything flowing smoothly my way, I hit up the used planes market. "please be A320s", I muttered under my breath as the page loaded. "Yes!" there was 3 A320-200s available for lease. I was just viewing the time until next D-check, when I saw mum stood at my door. "JAKE*! It's 8.35, I don't want to hear from school that you're late again!" I immidiately closed the laptop, and shoved it into my school bag. I put in my maths book, and some pens. As I walked to school, my hair still damp, I thought about how great things would be in the modern times with my A320s. My first class of the day was in the library, so as I arrived (Just in the nick of time), I brought out my laptop, and configured Firefox for the school's network. I refreshed the Page. They were gone.
