Which road should I take? Does it make a difference? I’ve never been to any of these places before. I don’t even know what country I’m in! I was just laying on my couch, thinking of where I would like to visit, and woke up here! Am I in England, Scotland, Wales? I have no idea. I was watching PBS Masterpiece Mystery and thinking I would love to visit Sussex, or Oxford. I must be dreaming!
I walked up to the signpost, touched it, it was real! The smell of green grass was real, as I bent down to feel it. What miracle is this? Is this time travel? What year is it? The sign looks old and weathered. Oh, my god, where is everyone?
I decided to take the road on the left. It was easy to walk on, and, it looks like there might be a house up a ways. I looked down to notice my slippers had changed to laced up boots. And my clothes, they weren’t mine! It was an old Army uniform from the First World War. I knew because it was the same uniform my grandfather wore in a picture I had. Oh, my god, what’s happening? It must be a dream…..time travel, me? No, it can’t be!
I walked down the road and noticed a house on the left. Maybe I could use their phone. I cautiously walked up the path and a door opened. Out flew a woman in an old dress, apron, and long hair flowing. She ran and threw her arms around me. I was shocked and tried to step back, but her grip had me tight. The shock of her around me was nothing compared to what I saw in the doorway. The man standing in the doorway looked as stunned as I felt. It was my grandfather!
