Good Girls Go to Heaven, Jenny Goes Everywhere

“Doc,” Jenny said, gesturing at the missile that hung frozen inches away, “we don’t got time.”

“What was your name again?” Gates asked.

“Jenny. Jenny Everywhere.”

“Well, Jenny Jenny Everywhere, I’m a time traveler. You’ll find that time is something I’ve got loads of. How did you do that?” he said, indicating the missile.

“Oh. With this,” Jenny said, showing Gates a device that looked like an old chrome mechanical egg timer. “It’s a ChronoLock. It projects a stasis bubble that locks down local space-time…"

“I know what it does,” Gates interrupted. “I invented it. Except the only working prototype is in my lab. How did you get it?”

“Er…someone you know gave it to me?”

“Jenny Jenny Everywhere, somehow I rather doubt that.”

“Look Doc,” Jenny said, poking Gates in the chest. “If you built this gizmo, then you know that the stasis bubble only remains stable for six minutes. So, unless you want a face full of missile, I suggest you come with me. Now.”

Gates smiled. “Yes Ma’am,” he said with a salute.

    That’s the end of the reruns. I kind of have an idea for where I want it to go, but please don’t hesitate to sequel if you want.

    I love the title (Meat Loaf reference?), and the story itself doesn’t disappoint. This was a great place to stop the self-sequels, and I’m glad someone else picked up on the story with what happens next.

    It’s a great detail that the ChronoLock looks like “an old chrome mechanical egg timer.”

    I like the forward movement on this, and the great mysteries laid out — how did something that he invented get into the hands of this woman he’s never met?

    Tell you what, I’ve been re-reading these recently and I never truly appreciated how terrific your chapter titles are.

Jenny laughed. “You guys are all the same.” “Trust me love,” Gates replied, sporting the infamous grin that had made knickers drop from here ...
