The lovely and clever Linda G Hill at Life in Progress said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “second.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun.
Fly high like the wind
Make this your life choice and run
Come first not second.
Press the Button : Part 12
The second I pushed that button I realized that I had started something I had to finish and I really believed that I could . The screen went dead and this time it stayed that way.
John motioned to me for the second time that day but this time he was beckoning me to follow him. I removed the glasses and followed him. I asked him where the children, who had brought me here, had gone? He just smiled and told me not to worry they were safe.
We walked back into the hanger and went up the second staircase to the second floor and entered the second office. There were computers, books and maps all over the place. At the end of the room sat woman her face hidden by a computer monitor ! “Okay ” smile John , “Traya meet Traya ” he turned on his heel and was gone out the door . Leaving me me with the woman . She moved away from the screen and for the second time today I came face to face with myself.
“Hi” smiled my older self smiled, “Shall we get to work , are you ready Traya” I nodded and I honestly felt safe in my older self’s presence . “Right we need to get to work then, do you trust me”she asked. Yes I did trust her with my life but I wanted some answers and given the rate that things were moving at I wanted them immediately! “Traya can you please push the button for me , that one on the wall” The older Traya asked me. I took a deep and said ” Just a second, I want some answers first!

It is just one tick
Sixtyth of a minute
A tock of the clock
