Teleportation Activated

If you could zoom through space in the speed of light, what place would you go to right now?

The freshly-cut green grass, the blooming red and yellow roses, the passion-fruit plant and the strawberries were all part of our little garden in Ethiopia. I grew up playing all kinds of games in that garden. Football (soccer), volleyball, tennis, badminton, and hide and seek to name a few. In between games, my older brother and I would take breaks to eat a few strawberries from our little garden. Thinking back now, they were the smallest strawberries, but for us, they were quite satisfying and we loved them. We drank from the garden hose to quench our thirst and ran straight back onto the grass to continue whatever we had begun. I loved that little green space and I would definitely teleport there today, but I’d also take my son with me. Is that breaking the rules of time travel?

Coming back to the present, we live in an apartment, which means we have to go to the park or playground for my son to run around and experience greenery. In the future, I’d like this to change, but that will be another story.

  1. I don’t think it breaks the rules of time travel to have your son go too. After all, there is zero chance of him running into a younger version of himself in your past.

    I think it should read…”we had begun” towards the end of the first paragraph, but I’m not a stickler for grammar, so it’s entirely possible I am wrong on that. Maybe someone else knows?


    • haha, I was thinking more on the lines of him growing old when we return to present time.

      Thanks for the grammar correction, I think you are right. If it is past tense, it should be begun not began.
