Future Sam

Sam grabbed his lighter and torched his “enchanted notebook”. It was bad enough he had to take orders from his boss. He didn’t need some spiral bound chieftain telling him how to lead his life. It would be hours before he found the notebook with the words “Nice try tubby” written on the first page. Turns out Future Sam has a sense of humor.

Sam was able to acquire the device for $1501 as there’s little demand for a $1500 time machine, even one touted as being in “Good Condition”. Sam wasn’t sure how he was going to pay his credit card bill in a month, but figured that was Future Sam’s problem.

Upon winning the auction, Sam received an email from the machine’s owner asking him to pick the time machine “as soon as possible”. Sam knew from the address listed that the mysterious man lived only a half hour away so Sam replied that he would pick up the device later that day.

Sam climbed into the Neon, turned the key, and opened the garage door. Blocking his way was Amy. “We need to talk now,” she said.
