Stories around my fantasy trilogy - Breaking the Tranquillity of Solitude.Book of Souls (An Excerpt from Chapter 9)
He calls it Naturom Demonto or Necronomicon Ex-Mortis and I believe he can use it to destroy all the other phases of natural reality in preference to where he chooses to finally settle!” Brody hardly paused for breath, wanting to get out as much as possible before being stopped by his understandably sceptical but currently only ally.
“You see, I, in the future that is, have helped to develop phasic transportation and somehow we met in an accidentally created phase where he was trapped and now I’m trapped… Oh, shit! Forget it, it’s too ridiculous; the more I listen to myself the more I’m convinced that I’m just dreaming it all. Just give me a fucking detention for wasting your time and I’ll go home!”
“Mmmmmmm, I don’t appreciate the language, but… OK… let me cogitate this a little… So, you believe this, but think that I won’t believe you, right?” he didn’t wait for Brody to respond.
“And you think the new Mr Zzirrah is your man, come back to hunt you down like Kyle Reece?”
“Errrr… Yeeerrraguessso, that’s about the size of it… Sorry!” Brody, embarrassed, averted eye contact and stared at his shoes just like an apologetic student might do
Still trapped as an 11 year old him, Brody organises a meeting up with his school professor whom he had much synergy with as a child in the hopes that he might understand or believe his predicament. Explaining time travel and interphasic alternate timelines isn’t easy but he is surprised at the professors reaction.
Incidentally for those who have read the book, did you suss my reasoning for calling the professor “Barnhardt”? – Check out an all time classic black and white film called The Day the Earth Stood Still !
If you want to find out what happens next and how the aging professor has a massive bearing on the outcome of the story why not grab a copy of Breaking the Tranquillity of Solitude Part 2 from Amazon and dive in ! Part 1 is pretty decent too 😊.
