Love Across Time: Chapter 42 by Jim Dunaway

Colin’s facial expression and body language had Ryan freaking. Colin never let anything bother him. “Colin, you’re scaring me a little. What’s going on?”

Colin practically threw a beacon at him. “We need you to come back. The timeline’s all over the place. Thank God no paradoxes. It’s a good thing the building is protected by the chronometric cocoon. Liam thinks it might be because you’re here in the past.”

“I can’t go back. The tribunal will reinstate the death penalty.” Ryan stated matter-of-factly.

At Full Speed #9 by Chris T. Kat

They ate breakfast in companionable silence. Jake leaned back in the booth, patting his stomach after finishing his meal. “That was really good.”

Bruce’s eyes crinkled. “It looked like you were enjoying yourself. I’m glad you liked breakfast.”

“I’m stuffed.” Jake grinned. When the waitress came by to collect their plates, she topped off their coffees. Jake’s good mood deflated as he considered what he’d promised Bruce earlier.

I thought I knew everyone who worked for the TPC. I don’t recognize this man at all the head Magistrate thought. “Who are you and what is your business here?

Not knowing how to address the head Magistrate, Ethan thought better safe than sorry. “Your Honor, my name is Ethan Evans.” A low murmur broke out among those witnessing the proceedings. Everyone in the Timeline Preservation Commission knew that name, but few had ever met him.

Aesthetics of Invention: Part 22 by Ravon Silvius

Thorn’s heart began to pound, his blood buzzing in his ears even as the realization hit him, despair replacing the shock.

 George had seen them both at the fair. He had seen them at the mess hall, after Thorn had placed his bag back in his room.

 Surely he wouldn’t. It was petty, stupid, something only the most mean-spirited person would do. A boy at the orphanage had been like that, angry and vengeful to the other children. Thorn had never learned why.
