Another writing experiment

I don't know what I'll do with it but I tried a little more experimentation today.

Jason was peering into the PC case at the parts he just replaced. His unkempt short hair was askew at strange angles from the top of his head. Plugging in the power cord he made sure that he could hear the power supply fan begin to whir softly for the couple of moments.

"Okay, let's see what you can do", Jason said to the formerly dead machine. Double-checking the wiring first by pulling them to the sides to see better. Satisfied that all was right he hit the power button on the front of the case. The little fan on the processor caught and began spinning.

Now he turned his attention to the monitor to watch the boot up sequence as it progressed. Absent-mindedly, he ran his hands through his hair and contributed to making his hair even more askew than it already was.

When the boot sequence reached the operating system screen he turned from the screen and grabbed the cover for the case. He began to put it on to protect the electronics when he noticed some little moving lights inside. A look of puzzlement and a frown began to be displayed by Jason as he leaned closer in to see better.

More and more of the little lights began to appear inside the computer case. Still befuddled, he dropped the cover to the side on the bench. "What in the hell is happening with you?" Jason asked the computer.

Some of the lights began to escape the case and were shooting past Jason. He turned quickly trying to follow a few of them along to where they were going. He was too slow though and more darted on by. Then, a couple of the lights hit him and he felt like he was stretching one way and then the other.

Another couple of the lights entered him and his vision began to shift and warp. All of his body began to feel different as the room began to fade away. All of the lights became larger as were the parts in the computer case. The lights became clearer to his vision unlike the computer parts which also became faded and less solid.
