"See you on the other side," he said, and put the gun into his mouth and pulled the trigger.

The explosion was louder than she expected and the blood and brain splatter on the walls of the motel room was impressive.

It would take more than a wipe down and a lick of paint to get of the stains, she thought.

Quickly she activated the SoulSearch App and located his soul as it shrieked its way out of his body. She managed to put it into the container and began the upload process. He would be on the cloud with the others within a few minutes. She tapped nervously while the upload bar moved so slowly.

This was the dangerous time.

The motel was chosen well, but all it took was a nervous newcomer and the police would be on their way. It wasn't getting caught that worried her, she could blag her way out of this, and she had enough contacts high up in politics and law enforcement to get any ridiculous charges dropped. Not it was the danger of losing his soul that concerned her.

If the upload process was interrupted then everything was lost: he was lost forever.

I hope she didn't have spotty WiFi. 🙏

Sounds like a compelling movie script!
Soul transfer sounds/feels like that crypto experience before you hear the ka-ching in your wallet :)

Indeed! That moment of panic! That key was right. Right? And for the right coin... shit... just need to check!

Fantastic little story! (And it does read like a movie scene...)
