She filled the tiny cup with the contents of the teapot. Still, in her bathrobe, she slowly walked to the sofa with the cup in her hands. She sat down and took a sip.The room was dimly lit, it was quiet. The sun had set and the night was still young.She heard as the door gently opened. She wasn't expecting anyone. Her husband was upstairs and Katy was still missing.The silhouette of a dark hooded figure encompassed the room as he helped himself. Mrs. Smith didn't flinch. She watched as this individual made his way to a nearby sofa and sat slowly.She took a sip from the cup."Been a while, Eric, what brings you here?"He slowly took off the hood.He looked unkempt."You're looking good."She said,"How are you doing Erica?"He asked."Well, everything that happened while we were kids is happening right now. Except I'm the only one here to experience it.""I'm sorry about that. But you already know how all these play out.""Easy for you to say. You were not stuck in the past."She s
"Everything is until it isn't""Everything is until it isn't""Everything is until it isn't"Dr. Norton muttered as he stared at his whiteboard while fiddling with the marker held between his fingers."Two universes, infinite timelines all tied together in an eternal causal loop. Every attempt to end the loop has led to this very moment. I've already done this an infinite number of times, I'm doing it right now and I'll do it again. But if everything I'm doing has already been done, this means I've already ended the loop. But if I'd ended the loop, I wouldn't still be here doing all these. None of this would even exist. This doesn't make any sense."Dr. Norton said to himself as he pondered on the equations he had written on the whiteboard."LUCY said we're in the process of ending the loop, but all processes within the loop have already happened. Unless......."He gave a long pause as the look of realization possessed his face."Holy Shit."He said as he got out of the chair in haste
Dr. Norton sat on a sofa as he examined the book given to him by Mr. Luthor. He read in detail, page to page as he waited for LUCY to completely go offline. He didn't expect it would take this long.The book was a journal kept by Dr. Norton throughout his journey in both realities."Wow.... I really lived a life. A record of things I've done, things I'm doing, and things I'm going to do....this is fascinating. I wonder how it ends."Dr. Norton said."My core functions are still operative, I can engage in conversations. You don't have to speak to yourself.""Thanks for that. But I wasn't really talking to you.""This might be your last chance to really connect with me.""Stop being a crybaby.""20% through the shutdown."LUCY said."Why is this taking so long? I can just choose to not carry you around with me.""You don't seem to understand.""Clarify then.""The nucleus is recording this shutdown process right now, everything we've done and everywhere we've been have already been reco
There was a light buzz accompanied by a beep. The sound wasn’t loud or disturbing, but it was sufficient to disrupt his sleep. The look on his face wasn’t that of disturbance, it was of comfort and euphoria.He pulled his arm from under her as she unconsciously adjusted her body while she slept. It was a glorious night of ecstatic passion between the two.He gently slid through blankets, stood tall, and walked toward the direction of the sound. Standing tall, he had broad shoulders, massive arms, a huge chest, chiseled abs with a V-shaped torso. He had a tiny waist, muscular legs, and a towering physique. He had the body of a Greek god, perfectly carved.With a physically imposing physique and a physically appealing body, he was a man in every sense of the word. His appearance alone was enough to get any girl excited, or boy....if they’re into that kind of stuff.He graciously went to the table displaying the holographic images, touched a particular surface of the table, and said,Yes
Walking through the halls of the research building, Dr. Tyrell carefully analyzed the plans sent to him on his mobile communication device. The plan was about the team’s journey to the other universe regarding the death of Katy and the disappearance of her murderer; Dr. Norton.Although he was initially reluctant, he now sees it as a horrible plan for reasons he was going to confront Evelyn about.He arrived at her office door and walked in after being urged in by her.“I don’t understand your fascination with the gravity suit.”Dr. Tyrell said as he met Evelyn.She was levitating at the center of her office wearing the gravity suit. The suit was skin-tight special clothing that had the tech to manipulate gravitons in the local environment. This feature of the suit made it possible to alter the geometry of the local gravitational field, enabling flight, levitation, suspension, and other feats that free one from the constraints of gravity. The suit was an embodiment of the success of q
There was a heavy mist in the atmosphere, the methane lakes were glistening with the ambient light from the nearby estate. There were bubbles in closed-up ponds separated from the massive lakes. A brownish-orange appearance dominated the scenery, giving Titan a look of perpetual twilight. A light-bluish reflection off the floor tiles followed a gushing sound. "I'm back." But there was no one around. She walked cautiously around the house, placing a very tiny chip on a nearby table. A Series of holographic images popped out immediately. It was like a disco of information proliferating the room. "You've done well, Katy. I trust you didn't encounter any difficulty?" "Following your guidance, of course not." "Good! I'll be with you shortly." "Where exactly are you?" Katy asked, hearing the voice echoing throughout the room without a physical presence. "It doesn't concern you." He asserted. "Ok, then. Whatever you say." There was a long silence as she waited, she just stood th
"So nice of you to join us, Erica.""Whatever, what is it this time?""Where's your boyfriend, Erica?""I called him, he got stuff to do. He might come over when he is done.""I don't think he's that important to our mission.""Excuse me?"Erica protested."I'm not wrong. He is the only one who doesn't have any ties or complicated connections with the guys on the other side."Vicki asserted."And how are you sure of this?""Well, Katy's Mom is your future self, Dr. Norton might be Eric or your Father.... we don't know much about Tyrell.""Who the fuck is Dr. Norton and how do you know about Mrs. Smith?""I told her."Eric interrupted."Really?! You trust her now?"She was fuming...."Is her vagina so great it formatted your brain? Or your dick now does all the thinking?""Look, Erica, I know you don't like me.....but..""And how are you connected to all these, huh?""Her father is the leader of a generational cult who definitely knows a lot about all these.""Stay out of this Eric.""
The music played on, people conversed as they moved their bodies to the rhythm of the sounds coming from the instruments of the performers. The room was filled with life, exhilaration, and sophistication.As they danced and moved across the room, his wristwatch made a slight beeping sound."It appears we're close to the quantum relay station."LUCY told Dr. Norton through the earpiece. A pathway of communication only known and accessible to them."Hello everyone, if I can just have your attention for a few moments...."Mr. Luthor said, hitting his wine glass with a dining knife."I do apologize for turning down your music, I know you must be mad at me."They all chuckled."Worry not, this is going to be brief...I promise.""I'd like to once again appreciate all of you for honoring my invitation. It's been a tradition of the Luthors - as the founding fathers of this town to invite and honor the dwellers of Loja every five years. We've been doing it for centuries''They clapped."Why is
