A little magic (Friday Fictioneers)

May 10, 2018



All I could see was the yellow spire, calling me, urging me on.

He wouldn’t be here. His ship had disappeared into that black hole and my heart had gone with it. Never again would I see his smile, hear his laugh. But he’d promised.

“Meet you under the spire thirty years ago.”

Time travel. Huh, what good was it when you couldn’t undo… I swallowed hard. Don’t think it. Go… for him… for us…

For me.

I stared up at the night sky, stars hidden by neon lights.


“Hello stranger.”

I spun around, my heart in my throat.




This is a Friday Fictioneers Prompt

A little story for my mum. She loves a good time travel romance story.

Happy mother’s day in Australia for this Sunday, Mum.

  1. I’m not sure I fully understand what’s happening here, but I think they both travelled back in time to meet. Right?

  2. Great story. So much said in so few words.

  3. It would be great to travel back now and again. Nice one.

    Welcome to Keith’s Ramblings!

  4. Dear Laurie

    Time travel stories always boggle my mind, but I love them just the same. Nicely done.



  5. Awe, so”An Affair to Remember” with a time travel twist. You made me smile.

  6. What a terrific story, Laurie. (I’m a hopeless romantic)

  7. Lovely, romantic story with a twist. I enjoyed your take on the photo prompt.

  8. Guess you hit it on the head with all of us romantics!

  9. A chance to relive it all again 🙂

  10. I love me a time travel love story. But I have this theory that time travel, in all probability, would be positively useless.

  11. Great time travel story. Too bad that they can’t turn ageing back with the time travel.

  12. True love conquers everything, even time! Nice story, Laurie!

  13. I love a good time-travel romance, too. I just worry about whose time they’re going to end up in!

  14. Love this! Made me think of An Affair to Remember as well!

  15. Aw, so romantic.

  16. There is more to this story. I would like to know more. Interesting take.

    • Oooo yes indeed Jilly. Thank you. Torn apart by fate perhaps… is it all in her mind I wonder?

  17. I think it would work if you are willing to meet at the right place at the right time. … at least you know a few things that will happen..

  18. Lovely, to know time travel works and they found each other again. Really enjoyed reading this.

  19. Very romantic and what’s it matter if they can’t undo their time travel if they are together, any time’s as good as another
