When Time was forgotten.

Extracts from this document...


"We have finished it!" cried Mr John and Mr Adam. We have finally created the biggest scam of the century! Andrew Smyth and his family were living in absolute poverty; all they had was a pre 2010 terraced house and an ancient colour television. In a time when electronics and gadgets had become part of everyday life, this was not much. The family only made a small income too. Granny Smyth was lucky as she was old enough to claim an OAP, but America managed to conquer the world and the Republican's were the leaders. They kept OAP's to a bare minimum and banned the over 60's from working. Time was going forward, but freewill was going back. It was a time when everyone had to speak fluent American-dialect and all other languages were permanently aborted. The electric chair had returned and was worse than ever. Andrew was working in the family orchard, which was doing terribly. They had several months of drought, making the apple yield very small. The only thing that kept them alive was the Universal lotto. It was a lottery that all of the countries in the world had to contribute to, so the Jackpots were always ridiculous. This week though was even more ridiculous, the Jackpot was a staggering $40 billion. ...read more.


A week later when Andrew bought everything he wanted, he decided to go to the local market, as he wanted to find something else to buy. The market was filled with beautifully shaped coloured bottles, useless but useful junk and a large wall where all of the men were. The wall leads to Andrew's old orchard (the family sold it as they didn't need it). Andrew now knew why his garden smelt so badly. There were many sellers of all different shapes and sizes, but they could all speak the same language: business. They knew what people wanted and stocked it. The stalls were all very similar. Place after place sold exactly the same things. It wasn't for Andrew though. He wanted something different. New, exciting, adventurous, something that he could enjoy for years to come, and he had found it. It was a small stall but had a lot of space. No items, just people and a middle-aged man who seemed to know every trick in the book. A trust worthy face, red jacket, silver pants (trousers) and a keen eye for the wealthy. Andrew was carrying lots of shopping bags from places in London: Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty's and even Macy's. He was also wearing his fine real leather jacket and a pair of Armani suit trousers. ...read more.


Andrew presumed that he was the inventor of this time machine "What is your chosen year?" "2002, I want to see freewill." Replied Andrew "Ok, 2002, it is. Anywhere in particular?" "The old UN, I want to see what it was like before a single country of power!" By this point, the con-man had mysteriously disappeared The inventor and Andrew stepped inside the massive egg. The inventor, pressed on a load of buttons, yet he didn't seem to know what he was doing. He felt like he was falling "Wow!" He thought. "I never knew that the past was underground. "We're here!" cried the inventor. Andrew felt like he was in the UN building, but there was something not quite right. There were all the representatives from all the countries debating war but still something did not feel just quite right. He was there at the back listening to all the speeches made by the figureheads of countries but the language seemed to be quite cluttered. For example all the representatives spoke English and he could have sworn that the British representatives spoke American-dialect. 4hrs later, after Andrew understood the debate, he returned to the warehouse but did not feel like his money went a long way. He decided though to ask for their names encase he felt like going again one day though. Andrew decided to ask the inventor: "I am Mr John and he is Mr Adam" He replied. 1 Oliver Wand 11.2 ...read more.
