It’s my greatest triumph.
I travelled 500 years back in time. I’m famous now and drunk with pride after having worked so long and hard.
As I wander the primitive streets, I inhale the feeling of the past. An antique store full of knick-knacks grabs my attention. Faded images of people proudly posing with their ancient vehicles or archaic machines seem to have come right out of curiosity collections. Bizarre!
My pride evaporates.
Future generations will look at pictures of me posing with my time-bike with condescending smiles, too.
My mastery of time is an illusion.
It’s time’s eternal triumph.
I wish I had more time…
