Bright Idea

“Very cool.”

“It is, isn’t it?

“Yeah.”

“So you did it…”

“Well, yeah.  Sort of pissed-off about my hand.  Still have most of my fingers, though.”

“Yeah.”

“You know, time travel… It wasn’t what I thought it’d be.”

“For a minute there, I thought you’d be pulled apart.  You’re not doing it again, right?”

“If I do, it’s with more protection.  Shit.”

“Keep your hands inside next time.”

“Yeah.”

“Did you… ever find her?”

“Found her – she looks the same.  More beautiful because she’s 50 years younger.  I could have stayed – I was really tempted.”

“Why did you come back?”

“I had this idea… I need to test it out.  If it works, it could make all the difference.  Save what’s left of this planet.”

“That’s some frelling idea.”

“Yeah.  But I have to try.”

“Sorry you had to lose the girl, man.”

“You can’t imagine.  But maybe… Maybe I can still go back.  If I live.”

“Then live.”

Narrowing eyes.  “That’s the plan.”
