A place to breathe (Friday Fictioneers)

Her leap through the portal was taken without checking the landing zone. She landed in a crouch, her laser pistol gripped tight in her hand. Sod it. She hated jumping without proper preparation. She breathed through the nausea and examined the alley she’d landed in. Her digital glasses immediately burst to life spitting out date and time zone. Earth. Early Autumn. A Wednesday. Early afternoon. Okay. She could work with that. Year: 2021.


She’d have to find a mask and a place to hide. It would make it easier to spot any hunters coming after her, that was something.

  1. The interesting thing about that is how we know exactly what’s happening. The hunted, sure, that’s eternal. But the portal, the laser pistol, the digital glasses? Yup, know them like the back of my hand. Which is why the mask is so clever

  2. Time travellers will do well to avoid 2021 in the future!

  3. Find a mask. Yeah 2021 brings back memories. Great piece of sci-fi literature.

  4. Definitely, a year to forget 2021 if you are thinking of time-traveling 😮

  5. Action packed as usual. Maybe she can get a mask at Happly.

  6. Dear Laurie,

    The digital glasses are a nice touch. At least she’s equipped and ready.



  7. I have never given such travel enough thought. Of course one must be fully prepared. Excellent, Laurie.

  8. I love your character’s adaptability.
