“Okay this is the plan, we go to the museum, we wait till a buyer purchases the clock. Mrs. Brooks you will confront and confuse the buyer and his crew, if he or she has one”“Why me, why should I do that?” Mrs. Brooks asked Eunice.“Because you are pregnant, they won’t hurt you”“You sure about that?”“It will be fine mum, just trust the process” Matilda joined.“Okay” Mrs. Brooks sighed slowly.“Then, I and Matilda will join in like emergency cross stuff or as full hospital nurse and help you up after you pretend to be sick after having a jam with the buyer”“What?”“So… we could have a chance to grab the clock”“Is that all? Is that the plan?” Mrs. Brooks asked Eunice.“What?”“That doesn’t sound like a plan at all” “Okay tell us yours then” Eunice stared at Mrs. Brooks and Matilda.“Sick” Matilda sighed.“Look, what if… what if we just borrow 10,000 bucks from a bank or any rich business man and buy the clock ourselves from the museum instead”“Mum?”“What? It’s a great ide
Dustin followed Molly after a long stare at Steve and met her sitting on a little chair in the secret room which leads to the underground. He sighed and breathed down heavily after putting his hands in his trouser pockets. He quietly sat on the ground besides Molly and cleared his throat. Molly looked at him and focused on the picture she was watching.“You know you can talk to me about anything anytime right?” he looked at her.“We didn’t grow up well like other kids” Molly said slowly.“What? Why’d you say that?” “You said I can talk to you about anything anytime”“That’s not what I meant”“I know” she chuckled and Dustin joined her.“I’m sorry” she said and Dustin looked at her.“About what?”“For not telling you about Cebus. Cebus… Cebus is like, my lifetime dream. I could even meet Billie Eillish there or more celebrities there” she added and sighed down.“Yeah”“I couldn’t have done what I did… I could have told you first before dad. You could have told me not to tell
Steve and Dustin came to the parlor and met Molly drinking and watching television.“Is that vodka?” Dustin was surprised.“Uhmmm” she sighed and took a short sip.“When did you start… uh ‘Scream?” Dustin eyes caught the television.“Yeah, the first one was really great, the rest sucks” she replied with a soft breath.“We found something” he said to her and she looked at him, then to Steve who was standing beside Dustin, holding the device.“What?” she said to Dustin.“I said we found something… something in some underground warehouse in one of the room in…”“Dust what? I ain’t seeing anything that is worth finding and telling me. Are you tryna ruin my mood or what? Is that it?” Molly stared aggressively at Dustin.“Oh my God Molly” Dustin scoffed confusedly.“Yeah I thought so”“No Molly!” Dustin exclaimed.“That’s possible”“It’s liturgical and annoying”“It’s what?” Molly stared at him.“No… we… we really did find something… useful” Steve stammered. Molly and Steve glance
“Ok fine, I am fed up already” Molly exclaimed, packing her purple hair with a purple rose bow.“They have gone for a long time now” Dustin stared at her, standing at akimbo.“They? Matilda’s been kidnapped and you… who are they actually… you are talking about?” Steve turned to Dustin.“My mum, my past mum”“She’s fine. Even if she… she’s… she’s just fine”“Time travel is crazy” Molly added and sighed slowly.“Where are your parents after all?” Molly asked and stared at Steve.“Ion know” Steve answered weakly and relaxed comfortably on the sofa.“Tired of this shit… no video games?” Dustin asked Steve.“Lemme check” he stood up from the sofa and headed to one of the rooms in the house.“I’mma… follow him and go check something with him… maybe a clue or maybe ummmm…”“Whatever” Molly said and interrupted Dustin who was standing and ready to follow Steve. They got to one of the closed rooms and Steve opened it’s door.“What is this place?” Steve asked.“What? I don’t know, I s
Eunice arrived at the Brooks family and gave a loud and annoying knock on the door. But before coming, she ran to the lab to check if the time machine that brought Matilda and Dr. Peter to 2005 is still in the lab but to her surprise, the machine was gone. She was disappointed and annoyed. She waited for few seconds and repeated the knock.‘Hello!’ she called loudly and the door opened immediately.‘Eunice?’ Mrs. Brooks was surprised to see her.‘What happened to you? Did you age in one night?’‘I time travelled’ she replied and headed inside.‘You time traveled?’ Mrs. Eunice asked confusedly, closed the door and followed her.‘Yeah I did… wait are you always pregnant?’ Eunice asked her and the little Matilda met them. Eunice stared at her for a while and took her stare to Mrs. Brooks face.‘Is that… is that Matilda?’ she asked her.‘You can tell’‘Where’s the adult Matilda?’‘What do you mean… where’s the adult Matilda?’’ Mrs. Brooks stared at her, confused.‘Yeah… where’s
‘Bitch’ Eunice sighed heavily when she realized that she has travelled back to 2005. First, she rushed to her closet to check if the box could be there, it wasn’t.‘Eunice is that you?’ Dr. Peter asked her and was startled, scared.‘I have been waiting for you for the past forty minutes, I knew you would come back’ he said with a faint smile on his face.‘Are you kidding me?’‘No I’m not, you know… some things are just meant to happen and we all, I mean.. you and I knows that’‘Give me the clock Peter’‘You look old Eunice, did you switch with your past self?’‘Peter’‘That’s very smart of you. At least I have tasted the past and I’m gonna taste the future you too’ he chuckled.‘The kids needs to get back, this… this was all a mistake’ Eunice said to him with a snort.‘Yeah I don’t doubt that but I like such mistake, it was a great start for me and I’m really enjoying it’ Peter chuckled again while Eunice was staring at him.‘Why are you doing this Peter?’‘What happened to the sweet
“I don’t need any explanation from you both, I need an explanation from you” future Eunice said, pointing at her past self. Molly and Dustin stared at each other.“Seriously?”“Do I look like I’m joking? What the fuck are you doing here?”“I don’t know what the fuck you are asking me and besides you should know why I’m here or did you become forty and traded your brains for something else? What? More beauty? Look at your eyes, they are now a little bit… did you do surgery?”“Hey! I am the fucking senior here. I am forty-three and you might just be twenty- six or whatever. So I think you should pull out some respect for me”“I am you, you know that right?”“What are you doing here?”“What? Are you still asking me that?”“Don’t tell me the kids are still there”“The kids are still there”“Shit”“Yeah that’s what you gonna say” past Eunice said.“Mom” Molly and Dustin called.“You failed?”“What? I just came” past Eunice replied.“Mum” the twins called together again.“What about the Bro
Mrs. Eunice found herself in same kitchen. She looked around her and noticed some changes in the kitchen. “Wow’ she was surprised, still looking around.‘Mum’ a voice interrupted her and she looked towards the door immediately, it was Dustin.‘Oh my God, Dustin is that you?’ she asked him, surprised.‘I thought you are in the car already. I saw you in the car before coming in’ Dustin said, grabbing some cans of sprite from the fridge.‘Oh no… that… that wasn’t, that wasn’t me’ she chuckled confusedly.‘Off course we don’t have two you in this house and’ he chuckled with her and kick closed the fridge.‘Maybe we do’ she said slowly.‘What year is this?’ she asked him.‘2022 mum’‘And I guess this is January?’ she asked and Dustin stared at her.‘Aren’t you coming? You said we are late’ he looked at her, struggling with the drinks in his hands.“By the way you look younger today, what cream is that?”‘Cream? Where’s your dad?’‘Might be in his lab. He said to go without him.
