I’ve had a long day and need to wake up at four in the morning, so I alms skipped today all together. But I did jot this down. So at least I’ve written!
Time Travelers, Witches, and Saints: A Compendium of Lesser Known Time Travelers and Other Horrors.
Minerva Baines didn’t immediately understand what she was seeing. She blinked and steadied herself against the open cabinet door.
“Don’t worry, dear,” Mrs. Fellinghast said. “We knew you were coming.”
A young girl poked her head around from Mrs. Feillinghast’s skirts. “April Mae,” Minerva whispered.
“That’s right, miss.”
“But…” Minerva looked back over her shoulder into the darkness of the cabinet. “You were just there.”
“200 years ago, miss. Like you.”
They stood outside and the sun burn bright directly overhead. Minerva raised her hand to shade her eyes. “I don’t understand.”
“Of course you don’t, dear,” Mrs. Fellinghast replied. “But you didn’t think we’d dump you just anywhere, did you? I run the best time travel anywhere. And even a silver ticket deserves quality.”
Minerva was finally taking in her surroundings. “Yes, ma’am. I could never afford a gold ticket…” she said, her voice trailing off. Everything was strange and inexplicable.
“Quite all right, dear. Don’t fret. I’ve not lost a traveler yet. Not even one with just a silver ticket.”
Thanks for reading!
