“History Has Changed”



Ben grunted as his assistant strapped him tightly into the time machine. Rain hammered the beach, streaked his glasses. Time was short.

“Hancock should not have died on the fourth, Martin. He should have signed the Declaration! History has changed!”

“How do you know, sir?” The assistant winced as lightning stabbed the sea.

Franklin smiled. “Because I do. Now, step away.”

Martin made it to a protective dune just in time. A silver-white bolt struck the cage Benjamin Franklin, Time Agent had carefully built. The machine glowed, then disappeared in a shower of fiery pyrotechnics better than any fireworks display.
