When Parzival arrived in history class, the students appeared motionless with their eyes closed. meaning they were currently engaged, either on phone calls, browsing the Web, or logged into chat rooms.
Wade is positive he knows where the first key is hidden on the planet Ludus. He can not afford to travel to the location but he finds out that his school football team plays nearby and decides to use a school voucher for free transportation to get closer.
After finding the first key, Parzival is exiting the Tomb of Horrors and all of a sudden hears someone talking and sees a silhouette. He soon finds out that it is Art3mis.
Parzival, Aech, Shoto, and Art3mis get invited to stay at Ogden Morrow's house to stay safe from the IOI. He has the best of the best rigs and haptic systems for them to use. Parzival and Aech arrive together.
After Wade/Parzival wins the hunt for the egg, his first thought is about meeting Art3mis. He comes out of his bay to find Og. He asks where Art3mis is and he tells him she is outside at the end of the maze waiting for him.
Wade finds Art3mis (Samantha) and is immediately stunned, she looks just like he imagined her, beautiful. They talk and things begin to look up for Wade.
