“Okay then,have a good day.”
I took my coffee and walked towards the table near the window and sat on the chair.i rested my scorching cup on the table and took out my phone.it notified me that i had only 15 percent battery left,i sighed and returned it to my pocket.I took a sip from the cup and burned my tongue a little bit on the lava java.I gazed out of the window,people were rushing on the streets ,talking on their phones checking their emails on those small screens.My eyes scanned the outside and landed on him.There he was again.I kept seeing this man every day ,he had a very peculiar sense of fashion ,always wore a dark black jumpsuit and donned a fedora.I have been seeing this gentleman for past 2 weeks,even if he is not there, there will always be someone with the same getup,they seem like something out of a popular dance group.As i looked at him he immediately slinked away into the alleyway behind .My panic levels started rising.I got up from the table,took my coffee and headed towards the door.As i was about to open it,a girl sitting next to the door blocked it with her leg and stopped it from opening.
“What the hell are you doing?.” i demanded.
“You can leave now but you’ll be dead in the next twenty minutes,unless you let me help you.”she replied.
“What are you talking about”i questioned her.
“You saw the jumpsuits right?”she asked me.
“Jumpsuits?”i replied with a puzzled look.
“Yeah ,you can’t tell me that you haven’t noticed them,i mean they are getting pretty brave with their methods.” she explained.
I let go of the door handle and walked towards her table,i sat in front of her and took a sip of the sweet black nectar that bestowed me a instantaneous calming effect.
“OK,you are right, i have seen them and they always seem to be where i am, at work,shops, even the fucking dog park.You know something about this” i said.
“Those people you see are travelers” she replied.
“Travelers …as in” i asked her.
“Time travelers” she replied in a ‘matter of factly’ way.
Time travelers? Is this a prank ,or is she the local psycho.I was about to interrupt her but then i realized why not listen to this ,it may be some good entertainment.
“I’m not some kind of psycho if you are wondering,nor I’m a crazy person”She read my mind.
“I didn’t say you were” i tried to save myself
“Aah but you thought of it.”she said with a smile on her face.
“Okay you know what just tell me what you were going to tell me or let me leave” i thought giving her this ultimatum would speed things up.
“Im just going to cut through the chase ,those people or “Jumpsuits” as we call them in our time,are hired assassins ,they specialize in trans dimensional murder,they even have a big organization which help some extremely rich people get rid of someone in the past.” she explained.
“You said ‘our time’ that means you are also from that time, how am i supposed to believe that?” i asked her as i took a sip from the cup.
“Well do you believe this?”
She pulled out a rectangular glass and kept it on the table.She then touched the glass and a hologram appeared on the table.It had a news article which stated “Kate Jervaston is the new president of the united republic of Karmania.” Jervaston,that was my last name who is this person, i searched for the date it was dated 26 January 2118. That was roughly 100 years from now i looked at the girl “What does all of this mean?”i asked her.
“Well you see the president in this news article is your granddaughter,i was appointed to protect the president at all costs,I received a very disturbing call which stated that the president’s existence was in jeopardy and i should hurry solving this mess before it was too late.”
I started to process all this information.
”I know how all of this sounds ,you don’t have to take a decision right now,just come with me,we have to pick up one more person.”
“One more person? who?”
Wife? i didn’t even have a girlfriend let alone a wife.she got up started to leave.
“Hey wait a minute.”i followed her out of the shop.
