Weekend Writing Warriors – Time Bubble Blues 10

Good morning! I was so busy this week that I forgot about signing up early for Weekend Writing Warriors, so I didn’t nab a great spot near the top of the linky list, but I’m still hangin’ in there. So I’ve got eight more sentences from ‘Time Bubble Blues.’ Jack’s still struggling with a computer that he hopes holds the key to find a way out of this TimeBubble room.


First snippet Second snippet Third snippet Fourth snippet Fifth snippet Sixth snippet Seventh snippet Eighth snippet Ninth snippet

In the hopes of calming down, he looked at the ‘frequently asked questions’ file:

“Just how does my panic button work?”

“There are many panic buttons in your TimeBubble room. All of them send a signal to the same Master Panic Button circuit. The job of the Master Panic Button circuit is to make sure that the TimeBubble field around your room is collapsed safely. Once the bubble field comes down, the computer in charge of your TimeBubble will unseal your room and let you out.”

“What would happen if my Panic Button malfunctions?”

“You don’t need to worry about that: All our Panic Buttons are designed to be so redundant and fool-proof that we don’t expect a failure for ten thousand years.”
