As the youths lined up in an organized way in five lines, each had fifty students. The groups were determined before they came here, so everyone knew which group he belonged to.
The three little gang were in one group, group two. Each group had a certain direction in time, with group two being determined to go back two hundred years before the apocalypse to witness a great calamity during the great war that was spread all over the planet.
They were going to witness the attack of a nuclear bomb on an old country called Japan. The attack came from an old country called the USA. This attack killed and devastated a city called Hiroshima, and this journey was part of the educational program to let the students realize how fortunate they were.
However the three had another opinion.
“I want you two to create a scene when we enter the room,” Dan whispered softly as they began to move. This was their first time coming here, but the Drill was the old Drill they used before.
The old Drill had only one room, where there were many capsules and one main CPU controlling the whole operation. These capsules were the means that allowed the students to go back in time, however the main CPU unit was the one responsible for controlling everything.
And Dan’s goal was to mess up with this unit.
Luckily for them, the CPU unit was located just next to the door, so Dan could easily access it provided that he got the suitable cover.
And his two lovers decided to make a big scene so everyone would be focused over them, while Dan would do his magic.
Dan’s mother was part of the engineer team that built this facility and was responsible for its maintenance. So, he managed to steal the codes of orders that would enable him to change the determined date of their journey.
As the three agreed before, they chose a date one day earlier than the date of the apocalypse. They wanted to see by themselves what really happened back then.
So, when their group reached their designated room, John and Laiyla exchanged silent glances with each other before they moved to the opposite side of the main CPU.
They wanted to attract everyone’s attention, and so they had to do this away from the CPU. Their move managed to alert everyone, who looked towards the two with questions in their eyes.
“Announcement: Love is eternal,” James said these words when everyone was focused on them. saying that wasn’t enough, so he moved closer from Laiyla as he circled her slim waist with one arm, and touched her soft neck skin with the other.
Then the two kissed each other slowly and passionately in front of everyone. This was out of Dan’s expectations as he got himself stunned when he saw the two doing this, but then he overcame his shock as he moved towards the main CPU.
“Order: date change.”
“Order invalid, invalid permission.”
Dan knew he had no permission to do so, but he came prepared as he said:
“Code,” the machine voice said.
“001201420001 code X.”
This was Dan’s mother's special code, and this was the highest permission he had found in her work. He didn’t know if this permission would be enough to change the date, however he hoped it would.
“Permission granted,” the machine said after a few moments of pause that made Dan’s heartbeat accelerate.
“Order: date change,” he said again.
“Order valid. Date is changed, order new date,” the machine said.
“October fifteen, two thousand two hundred and twelve,” he said.
This was one day before the start of the apocalypse according to Layila’s research. Although the apocalypse was a major event that everyone knew about, no one knew the exact date for that.
So Laiyla had to do her part of the job and started an extensive research about it. She determined the date of the apocalypse, which was heavily hidden inside the main data bank in the city.
The three didn’t know why such an important date was kept hidden. What made them even more shocked was the fact this date was one whole month earlier than the historical date.
John was so suspicious about everything, so he wasn’t sure the historical date was the date of the apocalypse. That made Laiyla start digging about the truth, and finally the three realized how right John was.
One month and one dark year, this apocalypse was full of mysteries. That is what the three thought of when Laiyla found the real date of the apocalypse.
“Order valid. Date changed,” the machine sound came to announce the change of date which made Dan sigh out of relief. He then moved back to join the group watching John and Laiyla passionately kissing each other.
Romantic relations weren’t forbidden in society, however doing this in public was a first. That made even their teacher not know what to do for a while. Dan looked towards the two lovers as pain squeezed his heart.
Involuntary he stole a glance over his love, Gina, who stood coldly watching the two kissing each other with some loss in her eyes. He hoped there was no one already in her life, as he wanted to own her heart before the AI determined their fate.
He sighed as he looked again towards the two who were stopping their kiss slowly with fiery looks over their faces. Dan knew if these two were left like this, they wouldn’t finish even after days, so he cleared his throat loudly as he said:
His words attracted everyone’s attention, which made him tense. He wasn’t used to being the focus of eyes like this. John and Laiyla looked at him with a wide grin as they knew he had changed the date. They would be sent to the day before the start of the apocalypse, which made the two let each other go.
They were lovers, but the thrill of the new adventure got all their attention. They wanted to enter their capsules now and start their time travel at once.
The group of youths moved towards their capsules as the scene that happened just now was still lurking in their minds. Love affairs were something not common here, so the first thing they thought of was what punishment John and Laiyla would face when they return?“Thanks buddy, you did it great,” John leaned to the side as he
Everyone got the message of the date as they didn’t yet understand what was going on to be all transferred back in time. When they opened their eyes, they found themselves standing like usual, in a semi-translucent condition, the well known soul condition of the Drill.“What the hell?!” Dan suddenly muttered as he was t
“Hmm, so you noticed this small flaw and started to dig for more,” Gina softly muttered as she was thinking to herself.“Now it’s our turn to ask questions,” John rushed up to cut the route on his friend. Gina looked at him deeply before she said:
Her words made the three friends think about what mysteries they could unveil by being here, however John had another opinion as he said:“I think you know more secrets than us, then why waste our time and not tell directly what you know?”
Three hours flashed by in a blink of an eye. At the same spot, the four regrouped again with mixed feelings over their faces. They didn’t find an empty table so they chose to walk randomly as they started to exchange their knowledge.“Do you know which city we are at right now?” John started the talk with this question.
Gina understood why he was feeling like that as she said:“Yes I knew, but would you believe me if I told you so? You needed to know by yourselves, not to be taught and deny the truth.” This sound came loud and clear, and the most important thing was that it was directed to them. the four instantly turned to look at who spoke, to find a twenty-five, twenty-six years old lady standing at the entrance of that abandoned street.She wasn’t alone, but that wasn’t the big issue.

John’s eyes widened as he cursed those weak witted students and their stupidity. Now this mad lady was thinking they were the apocalypse, or at least related to it.“We aren’t here to do you any harm, we are here for a field trip, that’s all,” John tried to evade answering this topic as he tried to start ano
