Hey there, friends and followers. Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors, for another eight sentence snippet of ‘Time Bubble Blues.’ Jack is reminiscing again about why he went to the TimeBubble building.
Once Andrew stopped arguing over the premise, there was a lot of negotiation over Jack’s schedule. When he’d first started talking to the people at TimeBubble, he’d imagined that he could stretch out his five months for years and years, until his youngest grand-daughter got married. With only five months to spend, he’d have to be very stingy with his time: graduations, weddings, a few other once-in-a-lifetime events, and Christmas every year of course.
But Melissa had tempted him on the subject of birthdays, and he’d shown weakness. The family replied with a united front. It would be unfair, they said, to pick and choose different birthdays. There would be resentments and hurt feelings, and Jack wouldn’t be the one to bear the brunt of them. Either he had to swear off their birthdays entirely, or make it to every one.
