Chapter 3 – A Guiding Light, A Gentle Hand

The Saki stared at one another in silence.  The original Sako was unsure what was running through the mind of her younger self, but all seven of her senses were on high alert.  After the unfortunate betrayal that unexpectedly occurred earlier in life, she was not about to take any chances on this blowing up.  What if her father was home in the past?  She’d be dead, at least if discovered like this.  No, this would take all of the wile and subterfuge she could muster.

“I’ve been sent down here to earth to watch over you,”

“I can’t believe that dad didn’t believe me,” Sako said as she sulked overtop her lunch. “I mean, when have I ever lied to him? Why would I just, like, completely lose his handsaw that I’ve never touched before and make up a story about it?” “There was that one time you told him you […]


Prologue – Meeting Oneself for the First Time

The first time Sako met herself, she was twelve and twenty eight years old. But that hasn’t happened yet. The backyard was aglow with early evening sunlight.  Though small there was nothing but untidy grass ringing a small stone walkway and a wooden shed in the otherwise empty plot.  Green Converse sneakers slapped on the […]
