Time Traveling Mix-Up!

Dia duit! Welcome to my blog! Last Tuesday was my very last day of school! It was a half day, so I decided to meet Ivy and Julie at their house after they finished moving all of their belongings back to their homes in California.

When I arrived at the Southern MTTB, I made my way through the winding 1900s branch and hopped into a time machine that was supposed to take me to a TTB in 1974. When I stepped out, however, it was obvious that I was NOT in a Time Traveling Base.

I stood in shock as my bare feet touched grass, not the cold and unfriendly floor of a Time Traveling Base. I glanced around to see there were no buildings in sight. It took me a moment to realize that I must have been dropped off at an emergency time machine in a lonely location.

I turned around to head back the way I came when the time machine began sinking into the ground. "Uimh! Fan le haghaidh dom!" I screeched. Once it was entirely consumed by the earth, I remembered Daid telling me that emergency time machines are one-use-only. But, he told me, where there's one there are bound to be more.

As I began my search for another time machine, I noticed a small figure in the distance. As I got closer, I realized that it was none other than my best friend Dani!

"Dani!" I squealed as I ran to meet her.

"Saoirse!" She yelped in surprise. "What are you doing here?"

"Um...I'm not sure really. I was SUPPOSED to be meeting Ivy and Julie at a TTB in California, but was dropped off here instead." I explained. "But there should be another time machine around here somewhere. Let's go explore!"

Dani and I made our way into a mysterious garden. It was full of plants that were much taller than both of us, and flowers the size of our heads! 

After gaping at the exotic plants, I noticed a bush of blueish flowers that particularly caught my attention. "There's so fuzzy!" I squealed as I rubbed the petals between my fingers.

"And the flower is as big as your hand!" Dani giggled. "I wonder why someone would need flowers that huge?"

Suddenly, everything clicked into place. "I think I know where another time machine is, Dani! Help me move these flowers out of the way!" We both began frantically pushing our way through the plant. Sure enough, I felt a large metal box in the center of the bush.

Dani and I quickly hopped into the time machine, fearing that it may disappear at any moment. We took it to the Midcoast MTTB, where I said bye to Dani and took yet another time machine to meet up with Julie and Ivy. 

Even though it was short-lived, I was so happy I got to see Dani again! Have you ever found something positive in a horrible mix-up?



  1. Hi Saoirse!

    It was really great to see you, even under the circumstances! I hope you're enjoying your summer so far, and that we can see each other again (maybe with more planning next time, though)!

    ~Dani ^_^

  2. Salut Saorise,
    I'm glad things did work out!
    I always try to look for positives, but sometimes, it's hard for me to do that, especially if my family is involved...
