IT WAS TIME FOR US to prepare for out first time travel. Linda looked very anxious about going. We headed back to our room to prepare for this adventure. We put on clothing that fit this place in time. We spent the next couple of hours reading over the information about 1950. Butterflies were making their way inside of my stomach. We sat on the bed, held hands, and concentrated on the year 1950. Suddenly we left the room and were inside a tunnel. On each side, we could see different things in history happening before our eyes. I could tell that we were going back in history because the events were occurring in reverse. Linda noticed light cascading on each side of us. The colours looked like a rainbow. Linda clasped my hand tight as we arrived at the end of the tunnel. We were back inside of the room that we just came in.
"Are we in the year 1950?"
"I don't know; turn on the radio and television."
There was no television. The radio was a big wooden cabinet. The songs on the radio fit those of the times. Linda looked on the table and found a newspaper.
"The date on the paper is November 16, 1950."
"So we have answered the question when, the next question is, where are they?"
My wife sat there very quiet and sad. My mind told me to fly back to Palm Cove Island. Suddenly, Linda and I were home on Palm Cove Island. I think that my father had something to do with that. She looked very surprised but knew that it could help with this mystery.
While standing outside something told me to go to the chemical plant on the east side of the island. In the future, the plant was closed down and condemned. The only thing for us to do would be to take one of the jeeps that were parked outside the Parker mansion. While doing this, Linda saw her father walking around on the estate. He looked very young and handsome with a suit on. Linda wanted to talk to him; however, it would be dangerous for future events. After Ted went back into the mansion, Linda and I left in the jeep. It took us about twenty minutes to get there. Linda appeared to be very nervous about going into the plant. Luckily for us, it was closed. We parked the jeep and climbed a nearby fence. My gut was telling me to go to the big silver building. In the future, this is where they stored dangerous chemicals. It was getting dark, so we had to act quickly. Walking very briskly, we made it to the building. To our luck, we found Hank tied up and gagged. Linda and I quickly untied him so he could speak.
"Sir William's plan is to put us in different parts of history. By doing this, none of us could be found. Ted Jr. and Victoria have gone into a different time in history. He left me here hoping that your father would find me here to give him a message."
"What is the message?"
"You will never see your grand kids again unless you return yourself alone so that they could have a duel. He said that he needs some closure. Sir William only wants to return to England, however, because of what your father did, he cannot. The time spectrum is locked and cannot be accessed. In other words, he wants your father to return him to where he came from."
"My father will not do that because he would go back to killing harlots like he did before. We will have to find another way of getting them back. I know from what my father has put into my memory that Sir William is a mere mortal. This means that he can be killed."
"Is that your intention?"
"No, but I will do everything possible to get our children back and to eliminate him from causing havoc with anyone else."
My father appeared in spirit form to tell us that we needed to get back to the future. We all joined hands and concentrated on returning to the present. Hank, Linda, and I were in the tunnel again. This time the events were occurring in correct sequence. Before we knew it, we were back in our room at the cottage. Hank quickly made his way back to his wife. They kissed and embraced while we watched them.
For a trial run on time travel, this trip seemed to go smoothly. I had hoped that we could find out where the kids were. Hank could not do any more time travel because of his responsibilities to Swan Cove. That Left Linda and me to figure out a way out of this mess. We were both glad that Hank was back with his family. She and I went back to our room to figure out our next move. Linda seemed to be very sad about not having the kids back with us. I decided to seek counsel from my father. Within seconds, my mom and dad appeared to us in the room.
"We brought Hank back and he had a message for you."
"I know, son. That man is going to be delivered to your hands by the Creator. When your mom and I did time travel, we followed our hearts. Know that your mother and I have gone to higher work; we are not allowed to give you much guidance. Michael, I can only give you the advice that David gave me. Test your powers and once you obtain the knowledge, use it wisely, otherwise, your creator will take it from you."
"By testing this gift, does that mean that you can change into different animals or objects?"
"Seek and ye shall find; knock and the door shall be opened to you." Dad humbly said to me.
"Son, I have seen your father obtain his experience the same way he is telling you to. We both love you very much and know that you will figure it out." Mom said with a smile her face.
Soon after, they disappeared from the room. Linda and I sat and pondered on what my parents said. Since my father was very wise and gave sound advice, the only thing to do was test this gift.
"If you wanted to go to any place in time in the history of the world, where would you want to go?"
"I would go to the Last Supper that the Saviour of the world had with his disciples."
"Close your eyes and hold my hand. So we are not noticed, we are going to change to the smoke of the fire that they had their last meal with."
Instead of going through the tunnel, we suddenly appeared at a very humble dwelling still in human form. The spirit of God could be felt very strongly outside of this building.
"Well, are you ready?"
"Yeah, ready as I will ever be."
With the snap of my fingers, we changed to smoke that beamed out of the fire. In amazement, we watched a man with long brown hair and eyes that could pierce through ones soul look right into the fire. Linda looked around and saw all of his disciples feasting upon every word of the Saviour. Peter, one of the disciples sitting next to saviour asked which two would deny him.
"The one who dips his bread the same time I do. He shall deny me three times before the cock crows."
Peter wept and grasped the Saviour's cloth. Since we saw this occurrence, I knew that my gift was limitless. I had to use it wisely and safely.
Within seconds, she and I were back in our room at Swan Cove. I did not feel that no more testing was necessary. The next step was to figure out where the kids were. Linda and I had some dinner by candle light. My mother spoke of my father sometimes using his mind to speak with her. I figured if he had the gift so must I.
Being very anxious, I closed my eyes and talked with Ted Jr. with my mind. I felt like a naive child trying this, however, I had faith that it would work. Seconds later, I heard Ted's voice. Using my mind, I projected his image in the room. Luckily, my wife could hear him, which gave her hope.
"Daddy is that you?"
"Yes it son, where are you kids? You have to be somewhere in the history of the world. Your mother and I have been extremely worried about you."
"He left Hank in the year 1950. Victoria and I are in the year 3120. I am very afraid of Victoria's safety. He has teased her with his knives at her throat. This shows me that he is going to kill her. You must get here soon Dad. Please bring her back first."
"We were able to save Hank. He is with his family. Your mother and I are going to come there and save you. Try and keep your sister safe."
"Son, I love you very much and your sister also. Do the best that you can. I have faith that you will protect your sister will every ounce of ability that you have." Linda lovingly said.
"What state or country are you in?"
"Sir William's time travel ability is very limited. He can only travel on Swan Cove and Palm Cove Island. He uses a little electronic box to travel. Victoria and I are on Palm Cove Island. He is holding us at what used to be our high school. They are now using it as a storage unit for bodies that are being used for cloning. Normal reproduction has been prohibited by the United World of America. The whole world has become one nation."
"We will be there as soon as we can. We need to get some information from your grandfather before we come there."
"Okay Dad, I will talk to you later."
Moments later, Ted's image faded and we sat there embracing each other. Clothes and information about the customs in the year 3120 appeared on the table for us. This made it very easy. My father seemed to be going the extra mile in trying to help us with our problem. We spent the rest of the night reading over the information provided.
It got late. Linda and I had denied ourselves sleep. A hot shower looked very inviting as my wife and I got in. The steam beamed out of shower stall. My wife's body looked very inviting to me. I lathered her back as she washed her hair. We stood in the shower kissing until the hot water ran out. Suddenly, the phone rang from the other room. Linda quickly wrapped a towel around her and went to answer it.
"Hello, can I help you?"
"Yeah honey this is your papa, how you had any luck in getting the kids back? Hank's wife called and told me that Victoria and Ted Jr. were taken by some madman from the past. Michaels' father told me all about his son's gift of time travel. I understand that you are going with him. Please be very careful and bring yourselves back in one piece. Is there anything that I can do for you kids?" Ted said with sorrow in this heart.
"My husband and I were able to get Hank back from the year 1950. We have found out that Victoria and Ted Jr. are in the year 3120. In the morning, we are going to try and bring the kids back."
"Let me talk to your hubby for a spell."
"How are things going for you today?"
"Just fine, as your boss, I order you to bring Sir William back for trial in my court. I want him to be charged with kidnapping and child endangerment."
"Are you aware of whom Sir William really is?"
"No but I have the feeling you're going to tell me."
"Do you remember the story of Jack the Ripper? He is the man that murdered many women in England. Do you remember the trial of the clone of Adolf Hitler?"
"Yes I do, whatever happened to him?"
"He was found guilty and sent to a special top secret prison. Sir William is going to be sent there also. The evidence in this case will convict him. If he kills anyone in the past, future, or present, you are to place him under arrest at any cost. You have the responsibility to uphold the oath of your badge."
"Yes sir, I will do the very best. How is everything going at my practice and at the hotel on Moko?"
"I have appointed a detective in your absence and he is doing fine. The hotel on Moko is doing just fine in Linda's absence. Her mother is helping with the management. Well, I am very tired and need some sleep. Let me talk with Linda for a spell, goodbye Michael."
"Hey sweetie, papa is getting old and needs his rest. You take care of that husband of yours. Your mother sends her love to you both."
After the phone call ended, we went to bed and got some quality sleep. The biggest fear that I had was Sir William taking my daughter's life away from her. I was sure that my father would not lead me astray.
