Crystal was breathing heavily. “Our only hope is the university’s new time machine. Pretty amazing it was just completed, huh?”
Mark gazed at the machine, a simple gray pod with a control area inside. “And it’ll be even more amazing when we use it to rescue our friends,” he said, much more calmly and confidently. “Quick--there’s not much time.”
The two entered the machine and frantically pushed buttons, hoping for a miracle rescue.
