Prompt: shangri-la

"I don't understand. No one ever turns down our offer."

"He didn't turn it down... exactly."

"What do you mean? He either did or he didn't. You were supposed to offer him the ideal version of his life, no strings attached."

"I did."

"What happened? Nothing's changed."

"I know. That's what I've been trying to tell you."

"So he did turn us down."


"Don't make me scatter your atoms to the solar winds! If you don't give me a straight answer--"

"He accepted the offer."

"Then where's his ideal life?"

"That's the thing. Apparently he was already living it."
