"It's your choice," Orpheus said to Leo, holding out his hands. There was a pill in each hand; one red, one blue.
"Take the red pill and you join us. Take the blue and you return to reality."
Leo accepted the pills, but they fell through the gaps between his dainty fingers.
"Oh, shucks," Leo muttered and leaned down to find the pills. They'd fallen on the woolly rug under the table. Leo looked under the table and saw a pill. He didn't really remember which pill did what, but since he'd found one... He reached out and grabbed it.
This pill was neither red nor blue. Instead it was off-white and had a little bicycle etched on it. What the hell, Leo thought, and swallowed the pill.
Suddenly, he was engulfed by intense sound and colors. Wonderful colors. Orpheus' voice was distant, "Hey! Hey, stop tripping out!"
