Stuck In Time


It's 2139 and Charles Stimatra, head of the ITEDRC (International Time Exploration and
Defense Research Company), has figured out a formula and machine enabling one person at a
time to be transported to another time.


The glitch he is working on is the person can only be estimated where he will be when he
gets transported. The closest they can get is three kilometers within the configured
destination. Seven out of twenty three men have been lost and killed because one ended up
inside a rock, another 300 feet in the air and the last got stuck in another person
causing a time malfunction and creating an explosive object. The others whereabouts are
unknown.


The other men went back again and tried to save as many from dying as they could because
it could cause a chain reaction through history and completely change everything.


The future is a whole different matter. Since the future can always be changed, sending
someone to the future could change the past.


Charles and his associates are not the only ones experimenting in time travel. These
people are called hackers, which is why there are Time Police. They devote their lives to
protecting the past. For example, if someone went back and killed Hitler, it could change
everything. The Time Police stop these people from doing so.


Captain of the Time Police used to be Sergeant Carl Lamberg. He was one of the many that
had to erase their identity and lives so they could protect the future of the human race.
Which brings us to the story of how Carl died. How do I know? Because I am Carl Lamberg.


“Control, I’m ready to transmit. Confirm safety for time transport.”

I let go of the intercom button and waited for the confirmation.

“This is Control, we confirm transport. You have the go ahead.”

This is my thirteenth time and I still get nervous. I reach for the bottom of my shirt to
wipe my forehead but the chair starts to shake and I end up in 1642 five feet above the
ground. I drop and absorb the impact with my knees.
