Excerpt from The Time Traveler’s Children
Hi, my name’s Kyle Brixton. My mom, Sophie, is a time traveler, and guess what? She decided to travel through time while pregnant with me. To give her credit, she didn’t do it on purpose and hadn’t known she was expecting. However, it resulted in me going from an embryo to ready-to-be-born inside the time stream. To me, the process took seconds, actually a couple of minutes of my personal time, but nine months of real time elapsed. It resulted in me being born with old memories, and the ability to see my entire life as a road with multiple junctions and major intersections.
I can choose when I want to live, except I was scared by what I saw. Humanity was heading for disaster. It didn’t matter what time junction I tried—the result didn’t change. Two pandemics, followed by the Land Wars would whittle the worldwide population down from multiple billions to just a few million. Life would be tough for my generation and even tougher for the next. Humanity was doomed, there weren’t enough survivors to maintain critical mass. Slowly but surely, each bastion of civilized life would succumb to food shortages and mutations—then, a strange thing happened, the junctions started to move.
I discovered it was Mom.
She tried her best, but what can one person achieve in a single lifetime? Not much, but she got on her spinning bike, slash time-machine, and peddled back in time for another attempt. She was relentless, and like a spider didn’t give up. Her web would break, but she struggled on, endeavoring again and again against formidable odds. A little push here, an insertion of funding there, always using future knowledge to mankind’s advantage.
Persistence won. She often thought an older-version of herself was coming back in time to leave hints. That was only partially true. Most times, I was the change agent. With my help, Mom threaded the needle through two pandemics, discovering cures and vaccines with the effective result of limiting the outbreaks to specific geographic areas and downgrading them to epidemics. Only I understand the heartache she endured in saving billions of lives only to see them die in the following Land Wars.
Global warming was awful, setting community against community and highlighting humanity’s appetite for self-destruction. Over a third of the planet’s habitable land became unlivable, creating food shortages and a mass migration to higher ground. Sadly, the people living there fought to protect the little they had.
I remember all the timelines Mom created. Don’t know how, just do. You’d think your brain would overload, but it doesn’t. She worked wonders and frequently used her time-machine to rewrite recent history. I studied and learned from all those possibilities to such an extent that it’s easy to get lost and not realize which is the one you’re currently living inside. A time traveler’s curse, is life an alternate memory or reality?
Kyle moved to live in the past...rediscovers reading as there is no texting, only real conversation.
Kyle also has the ability to relive the happy moments...why would you live in the present?
He longs to be surprised and will do almost anything to get it.
