K.L.Caley’s # writephoto: Blue

This week in K. L. Caley’s#writephoto Morgarna , Merlin and Gail sort out a broken time line the Merlin gives Morgarna another task!


“Well Morgarna” The captain said, “My name is Tony and my crew and I have been tasked by Admiral Whiteley to take this ship back to December 1943 where it played an important role in the Battle of North Cape, assisting in the destruction of the German warship Scharnhorst. ” Tony stopped to take a sip of his scotch while Morgarna poured herself another and lit another cigarette.
“The thing is we are caught in a loop and only seem able to jump between London, where you arrived, Scarpa Flow and here at HQLTS (Headquarters, London, Time Shifts).
Now Whiteley just won’t listen to us and is just insisting we have to make it to North Cape to sink the Scharnhorst!”
Morgarna stubbed her cigarette out and looked at Tony…”Now last time I saw your Admiral Whiteley ” she stopped and sucked her lip in, scratched her head then continued. “In 3026 you guys had your timeshifts perfect….Merlin helped your guys perfect it as I recall”
” That’s right we did and it’s even been improved on since. The trouble is this is not one of our ships, Morgarna this is the original HMS Belfast and she, due to some error is stuck in a pointless loop. ” Tony shrugged his shoulders “So that’s why Whitely called you in …. we’ve got to get this ship back to it’s own time to sort the time line”

“I see, Merlin said it was a tricky situation! Looks like we need to slip the loop” Morgarna said smiling at Tony. “Now let’s get this in the right time order, which crew have you got here? ….”
” My own thank God, Captain Scott’s crew would be worse than useless to me !”
“Right” said Morgarna, “So tell me exactly how you all ended up on here and jumped… sorry I mean timeshiftrd in the wrong ship? Surely this Belfast has not got the capability to jump?”
Tony got and walked around the desk to face Morgarna, “No it hasn’t but somehow when we realised we’d missshifed we somehow merged with the original Belfast, when the shift button was hit the crews were moved and the original jumped…. So we are struggling with an antiquated ship and the 1940’s crew is being flummoxed by a ship that’s so far from their comprehension …
It’s crazy. “
“So how is this ship timeshifting , if it hasn’t got the capability ? ” Morgarna asked.
“The last time Merlin visited he show us a way of using an anomaly but it is not as advanced as your anomaly so we can’t quite seem to get things sorted… Are you getting the picture Morgarna?”
” I am Tony that’s very Merlin , give you part of the whole…and then he can step in and save the day or send me in” Morgarna poured them both another scotch.
Taking her Time and Space Mobile Communicator out of bag she rang Merlin.

Back at the house Merlin was in the lab busy on his laptop, Gail was sitting at another laptop opposite him .
Merlin’s mobile vibrated, he looked across at it and said, “Babes how are you doing ” he asked with a guilty smile on his face….
“Don’t give me that” snapped Morgarna “you know exactly what the problem is don’t you? “
“I do Morgs , I do and I have a solution too!”.
Morgarna lit a cigarette took a drag and demanded ” well what is it time is of the essence!”
“Okay hunnybum” Morgarna opened her mouth to say something but bit it back to save time.
Merlin continued, ” Right I have spent the last twenty four hours sorting this mess out and I now I have the answer.”
Tony looked up and chimed in …”yes Mate we are on the clock here.”

Gail and Merlin stood on the bridge of HMS New Belfast surrounded by a very confused crew of officers and men…not a woman among them…. Just staring at the glass consoles that moved if you moved you hands or eyes.
“Are you sure they can’t see us” asked Gail.
“Definitely not but even if they could they are so confused by their surroundings I don’t think they’d really notice us. “
Just then the original Belfast landed alongside, a perfect timeshift, but still Morgarna felt sick this time she said “I hope your normal vessel timeshifts are soother”
“Don’t worry” Tony replied “they are.”

Gail and Morgarna got the original crew of the Belfast back on their ship, with the help of a teeny weeny spell from Morgarna everyone was totally compliant. Once back in their right places the crew stood at their posts frozen momentarily in time.
Gail made her way back to the New Belfast by way of a rope swing which she enjoyed immensely.
Once she was back she watched the crew preparing to timeshift, it was so calm all the consoles were controlled by the movement of an eye or a hand, Gail was enthralled.
The ship jumped it was incredibly smooth, no implosion or expansion and no nausea!

Morgarna stood quietly watching captain Scott and his men coming back to life.
Flicking a switch she addressed the ships company.
“Now hear this, Now hear this, you all need to be at posts you are about to be part of the Battle of North Cape , you will be instrumental in the sinking of The Scharnhorst you will be stretched to your limmets by weather and cruel seas…. You will forget the last twenty four hours … You are now back escorting a British convey. As you were before ” Morgarna walked away from the bridge and on to the rolling deck. It was dark and freezing. Two sailors looked at her as she climbed on to the hand rails…”bye bye sailors” she smiled flashing her legs to them….With a click of her fingers she shouted as you were no one will remember this! She jumped into the anomaly and was gone…. The rest is as they say history.

Back in the wardroom on HMS New Belfast Gail, Merlin, Morgarna and Tony were just finishing a magnificent meal. All history timelines had been restored to normal .
Morgarna was relaxing with a large glass of Shiraz and a cigarette she was happy that once again all was well.
Merlin reached across the table and handed her a slip of paper and a photo of a door..
“Morgs babe I need you to investigate this tomorrow it’s here in London 3023 there is something that is definitely not right! Here’s a photo “

Morgarna looked at the photo and the postcode, it was of a blue door covered with shiny gold stars. In the lower part of the door was what looked like a cat flap.

” 0h!” said Morgarna so you two are clearing off and leaving me to sort it out.”
“Indeed we are babe, Gail Hun are you ready”

After Merlin and Gail had left Tony asked Morgarna if she’d like to see his quarters . “I thought you’d ever ask Hun” she said grabbing his hand …”show me NOW! “

In the morning Morgarna woke up feeling invigorated … Tony was fast asleep and actually stayed that way for two days and nights.
Morgarna stepped off the gangway and headed into London 3023, looking around Morgarna was struck by how different the air was, clean and fresh… Looking up she saw why, the whole of London was under a dome…the sky above the dome was black!.
Morgarna followed the satnav on her phone until she found the post code and the blue door with stars on.

Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and hopefully in to light ?? I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well. I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.
