Time Starts Now. Joe. Please. I want you to get out of NY and head straight for the Grand Canyon. Right now.

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Time Starts Now 7:00 AM ?Hello, Joe....Jamie here?, a petrified voice shot out of the receiver. ?Dude, just chill!? , 17 year old Joe replied agitatedly as he was now wide awake hearing the urgency in his brother?s voice. ?So how are you doing??, Joe asked Jamie casually. ?No time for that baby brother. Listen to me carefully.? ?Aw shucks......Stop your big brother lecturing, Jamie. You know how much I hate.....? ?Joe. Please. I want you to get out of NY and head straight for the Grand Canyon. Right now. In two hours time.? ?You?re joking?, the angry blue eyed youth protested. ?You?re time starts now.? And the line went dead... A flaxen haired youth with earphones dangling from his curls got out of his waterfront villa. It had been about two years ago since he and his brother bought that place since the sad demise of their parents, who died in a plane crash. ...read more.


It was lucky the cops didn?t get to him but he needed to be careful now or he?d land up in jail or be trampled into mincemeat by other vehicles. ?Jamie?, he thought, ?I?m coming. Another 350 km to go.? Joe was so overwhelmed in his mission that he hardly noticed the blare of sirens behind him. ?Gosh!?, he swore under his breath, ?Now this is going to get ugly? and slammed his foot down on the accelerator in rage. The next half an hour was a blur. Hair streaming all over his eyes and sweat trickling under his sweatshirt, even though the A.C. was doing its best, Joe could never remember what stunts he?d tried that day. He was jolted, swirled by other drivers and he surely must have spun a 360 at least thrice but he thanked his lucky stars that he was alive in one piece and that his beloved car was still surging ahead, although he hated to know its present condition. ...read more.


Waves devoured everything that lay beneath them mercilessly, sparing not even the hugest of trees or staunchest of boulders. The earth did seem like a blue planet today only it was too overwhelmingly sad to comment about it just then. Joe?s blue eyes met his brother?s green ones as if searching for an explanation. ?A tsunami.? he gasped ?Only hours ago did I discover some unusual behaviour in the Pacific when I went out to collect some algae samples. I reported it to the department but all of them ignored me. Yet I persisted and strongly recommended them to check out this unnatural thing but he too dismissed me and told me not to unnecessarily cause panic in the masses. But I had that instinct in me, warning me to flee. That?s when I called you up, Joe. I know it would have sounded mad, as always, to you and would have caused you to panic therefore I didn?t tell anything at that time. Sorry.? Joe didn?t hesitate this time. He lunged ahead and both brothers fell into a tearful embrace. THE END.......TADAAA ...read more.
