I was over at my best friend’s house after school one Friday afternoon. We heard strange beeping sounds coming from the basement. We walked downstairs to investigate.
My friend and I saw a large machine in the middle of the basement, with lots of flashing lights and buttons. We ducked to enter the small door of the machine.
We saw one knob, angled to the left and pointing to the word TODAY. To the right of that setting were the words FIVE YEARS LATER.
Confused, I looked at my friend. She looked right back at me.
My friend reached for the knob and turned it to the right… FIVE YEARS LATER…
