The Brittle Universe
The Brittle Universe
This was 29 January 2020. A student asked a Physics Teacher,” If we increase the speed of two cars to infinity, how can we come to know which one is slower or faster when speed tells us which object is faster or slower? “. The teacher was out of an answer. She said,” Jones, find it out yourself.”. The bell rang and the school got over. Albert got jealous and got into a fight with Jones that day.
This student, Jones, grew up and became an astronaut. This was 23 January 2049. He worked with an engineer, Joseph. They both had invented a time machine.
They decided to travel 50 years ahead. So, they sat in a pod. Now let us know a what pod is.
Time Travel requires two portals and a pod. A pod was a very oval figure, in which there are 5 seats. It is 2 buttons. A green ( start ) button and a red ( end ) button. It also has a number pad to enter the year the user wants to go into.
There are 2 portals. Portal ‘A’ and ‘B’ are those 2. Through A one would go in and through B one could get out.
Joseph sat in and typed 23 January 2099. Jones pressed the green button. The pod moved in. Oops! Something wrong went and a Spark came out through A.
They pressed the red button but it didn’t work.
They went in through A but came out through some other place.
A Parallel Universe
The pod came out through a deep lake.
“What is this place?”, exclaimed Joseph after getting out.
Jones was so astonished that he didn’t even move his lips a bit.
The atmosphere was purple, filled with binary digits and space rovers flying like aircrafts. It all seemed like night. Joseph was scared. He pinched himself. It was reality.
Jones was mentally back to life. He answered Joseph,”I don’t literally know that!”. This astonished him (Joseph).
They started wandering and wondering. It was sick for them to see an airplane on a road and a car in the sky!
The citezens had clay instead of gold and silver. For them gold was as cheap as dirt.
It had been two days since they were lost ( according to the Earth date and time ) on this new awkward planet. Jones decided to first get settled and then get some things to reassemble these things and make a ‘C’ portal. This C portal would teleport them to the D portal on Earth. So they began.
Joseph had got training in the Boy Scouts and thus, learnt some survival techniques. Therefore, he decided to follow the river coming out from the lake. Then, they started following the river. The river was a long journey covering 5 miles. They were too hungry to walk ahead so they stopped at a point near a electric fence at a distance of about 50 meters.
Jones found something. He cried,”Joseph! I have found a settlement!”. Joseph ran as fast as he could and as soon as he came, the hard luck came out.
A flying camel with a security guard came gliding over and gave Joseph a electric shock! Jones was caught and was taken along with the guard leading to like base of army (a giant castle sized!).
Jones as a prisoner is kept locked up in cell no. EM001367. This is a quite embarrassing moment for a famous astronaut who is locked in the jail of a planet he doesn’t even know.
Joseph came back conscious when it was 19 September 2057, 4 pm according to the Earth.
A punch onto the security guard and Jones was pulled out by a man with a covered face. He said,”Don’t be scared.
Jones was astonished to see that the man was using his hand to make things ‘BRITTLE’.
Jones asked him how did he do that.
The man unveiled his face and turned out to be Albert, the person who was quite jealous to Joseph on Earth.
He gave him a kick so hard that he punctured two walls and went straight to the point where Joseph was lying dead.
Jones was killed within himself on seeing his friend leave him! Jones camouflaged himself and became exile for the next week.
Then, Jones decided to take revenge.
When you have a person who has your man killed, it is your time for REVENGE!
It was heard that by Jones that a portal could only send him back to portal B but before that he decided to defeat Albert.
Jones had been a successful engineer and he knew what to do there. “ I’m smart enough to figure that out….”, he said to himself.
He went to a hardware shop. He saw a shopkeeper with a mask on his face. He saw that the shopkeeper’s voice was a bit familiar to him. The shopkeeper said, “ I know you. I know the person all about your pod. I know that you’re lost here.” Jones was astonished to hear that. The person tapped on a light bulb and it became powder. Jones exclaimed,”Albert! Isn’t that you?!”
But the reply was nothing.
Introduction by The Shopkeeper
The shopkeeper pressed asked Jones to press a button. No sooner than he pushed the button he was pushed straight down to a room with a projector’s film stopped. Jones looked around and found a remote with a START button. He touched the remote, it got into flames. The shopkeeper bounced down. The lights turned on. Jones was ready for a fight when the shopkeeper removed his mask and it turned out to be Albert!
Jones was just mad with anger and he decided to kill him!
Before he did something, he said to him that he knew where he was. Jones said,”I’d love to listen to your last words! Speak up!”.
Albert told him that it was the future Mars of 2057, where they could live in peace and go to the past for telling them that time travel would be possible in the future. Before Albert could say anything to Jones, he give Albert a massive blow of fire. Albert vanished.
Jones flew and went up until he could see the binary below him. He looked up and saw Albert coming in to punch him. This was a tough decision because if he punched him, there wouldn’t be anyone who could stop him from reaching back to 1986. Jones got aside and followed him with a continuation of fireballs on him till Albert dodged himself.
Albert didn’t realised when he fell into a coal mine on fire. He was on fire when Jones made the biggest ball of fire he could make and smashed it right into the deep mine.
This was the end of Albert.
