The 5th G
For as long as they could remember there had been 3 G's. The 3 G's helped them communicate, share and co-ordinate. The 3 G's were useful.
Having 3 G's was good. But it wasn't enough.
Then the 4th G came.
The 4th G lit up their eyes. It lit up their emotionless faces as they sat on the train or lay in bed next to their loved one, or alone. The 4th G was charged with more than they had ever had before.
Having 4 G's was good. But it wasn't enough.
Then the 5th G came.
The 5th G was the bad G. The 5th G was the Dark G. The Devil's G. The 5th G brought a rift to hell. A vortex that sucked the souls of all who dabbled with it. It really sucked.
Having 5 G's sucked. But it wasn't enough.
Then the 6th G came and things were ok again.
And when the 7th G came the people transcended. The heavens opened and they were enlightened. The 7th G was the holy G. The 7th G was the golden G, the G of all good things. The G of love and the G of beauty.
The 7th G was the best thing that ever happened.
But it wasn't enough.
