The Time Machine!
“Mom, you sure this is a good idea?”
“Yep, I’m sure! You wanted to see the world from the 18th Century, now we can experience it firsthand!”
“How? I mean, will this thing actually work?”
“It’s not a thing, it’s called a Time Machine, Adi”
“Yea, the Time Machine or whatever, is it really going to work? It just looks like an hourglass structure to me”
“Trust me, I know! It’s going to work!”
Adi stopped to think and then spoke quickly “Mom, what if we’re unable to come back?”
“Then, as always, we continue to live for the moment!”
This 100 words story was written as a part of the Friday Fictioneers Writing Challenge by Rochelle.

Thanks a ton!! 🙂
Inspiration can come from any corner..you just proved it. I particularly liked the message…live for the moment. Great story in 100 words.
Thank you, Vandana. Glad to know that you liked the message in the story 🙂
You just inspired in a mere 100 words! Great work!! 🙂
Thank you Swapnil! 🙂
Is that the time slot you want to go to? I can arrange that with my time machine, you know! 😛
Cool! Looking forward to it!
Haha! Sure! 😀
Loved the ending line- “we continue to live for the moment”. No matter where the time machine will take them, this will always hold true.
Absolutely! We could live for the moment wherever are and whenever we want. The only thing we have to do is to ‘decide’ to do it!
Thank you, Jahnavi 🙂
I think that was not such a bad time to be stuck in. Better than stone age 😉
Haha! That’s why we carefully selected the 18th century 😉
Ahh! A well thought out plan.
Very nice. Love to your son. No one is coming to rescue me dear.
I will come, Maasi 🙂
You just tell me when you want to be rescued! 😀
