I really lucked out with my Cupcakes theme. Whodathunk, in the middle of a video game dystopian thriller, there would be a bear serving cupcakes? Thanks James Dashner! It was the one thing that made The Eye of Minds worth the read! Haha.
And in case you think I’m kidding. Here’s the quote:
“To Michael’s right, a huge black bear, bald spots covering its chest, was leaning over to pick up a tray of cupcakes from a serving window that led into a kitchen. A bear. With a tray. Of cupcakes. Michael had to remind himself that it was okay–anything was possible inside the VirtNet.”
See–even the protagonist didn’t believe it!
