I met him in a bar.He was sitting alone in a corner,looking lost and depressed.His beer was untouched and his eyes were travelling light years
I was with friends ,as usual,but from the moment i saw him,it was like i was alone.No matter the chat,the loud music,the laughter,everything seemed so
distant,like i was inside a bubble.Just me and him.For a moment i thought i was falling in love.
And then the song started and like magic,when he heard the words,he came out of the trance and started looking around,like he was afraid that everyone
knew his deepest secret.
"Two thousand years they stand behind us
Are we just travellers in time
We face the phantoms of our future
They face destruction of their kind"
Saxon were singing "are we just travellers in time" and my only thought was:"cool he likes heavy metal".And with that thought i sent him a whiskey
shot.I went to him.Now before you think anything,i'm not that kind of girl.Never make the first move.But this time something was telling me to go to
him.Talk to him.
"Nice song ehh?"
"First time here?I'm a regular and i don't remember seeing you around before."
"I don't belong here"
"You mean you don't like the place?The music?"
"No i mean here"
"Okay...so where do you belong?"
Great.For once more,i'm attracted to the weirdo.But then he started talking.
"You wanna hear a story?You wanna know why i don't belong anywhere?Why you should stay away from me?"
This was getting more weird,than usual,so i decided to leave him alone.As i turned to leave,he grabbed me by the hand and whispered:this song is about
That got my attention.
"What do you mean?" i asked.
And then he started talking.Like he opened a box and noone in the world could close it.
"I was born on June 16,2365.Humanity has survived many wars and natural distasters.Our society,is not what you call a free one.To ensure that there
will be no more wars and crime,the goverment developed a technic,to avoid anything criminal.They tell you what to think,when to think it,who to love
and what to like.Any form of art is illegal,because art can create passions and feelings.To make sure that everyone follows the rules,every
night,before we go to sleep,we are scanned,by a device we all have in our houses,that can literally read our thoughts.
I failed that scan one day.I dreamt the previous night,that i was having an affair with a woman i know.She is married.The entire day i was thinking
about her and how would it be possible for me to approach her.
20 minutes after the scan,the police arrived.They took me to the jail,because such thoughts could trigger a number of different violent crimes.Next
day the trial and the verdict.GUILTY.
In 2405 there are no prisons.Those who commit a violent crime,they die.Those with illegal thoughts they are banished.My punishment was no
different.The doctors installed inside my heart the CPTM.That is a tiny piece of machinery,that every time my heart beats faster,due to adrenaline
rise,it sents me to a different time and space in the past or future.When or where it will take you is random.The faster the heart beats,the further
it takes you from your time.
After i recovered from the procedure,they gave me an adrenaline shot and my first stop was the moment of my birth.I saw my mother in the clinic,giving
birth to me,while due to a genetic defect lost hers.the scene was too strong and my adrenaline hit the roof,so i relocated again.This time i was in a
jungle.The air smelled different and then i heard a huge noise coming my way.I turned around and i saw it.The buggest creature ever walked on earth.A
dinosaur.I started running and the next thing i know i was in a desert.I heard voices from the distance and i went to see what was going on.Right
there in front of me thousand of slaves were building the great pyramid.Although i was in awe,i was cool and i stayed there for a few days,until one
of the guards found me and in my attempt to escape i triggered CPTM.
For the past five years i travel back and forth in time.I have witnessed major events in human history,but usually i prefer to go somewhere
insignificant,quiet.But even there i can't make contact with people.Happiness,sorrow or a strong feeling will send me somewhere else.
I was sentenced to time travel for 15 years,after that the CPTM will go dormant and i will stay to that year for the remaining of my life.I just hope
that i will not end up with the dinosaurs again.
You don't believe me.Right?Well i wouldn't believe it myself.But if i kiss you right now,i will disappear before your eyes."
I didn't know what to say.The guy was either crazy or ,if this was real,the lonliest man in the world.Every logical person in my position would get
away from him instead i asked him.
"Can you take someone else with you?I mean the moment that the CPTM is starting to transfer you if i grab myself on you will i come with you?"
"I don't know."
"I know it sounds crazy,but i want to come with you."And with that i grabbed him and i kissed him like i have never kissed anyone before.
The first feeling i got was like i was elecrecuted.I tried to get away,but he was holding me tight.Everything around us became blurry and then
nothing.Next thing i saw was the sun and him over me trying to revive me.I passed out.My head and my entire body was in pain.
"Don't worry,you'll get used to it.First time always sucks"
For the last two years we travel together.I saw things that i wouldn't even dream about.From ancient civilazations,lost and forgotten,to the last
moments of earth,before the sun go supernova.Everything is so amazing,but i look forward to the end of his punishment.In 8 years we will be able to
settle down and do the thing we both dream about,since the beginning of our journey together.
