Sci-Fi with a Twist Story List
The Cave - A teenager enters a cave and emerges decades earlier
running into his younger father living in the 1980's.
It was a summer like most any
other in Harrison, Tennessee. It was so hot and humid that if you
ventured outside, you felt like you were wearing a blanket over your
head. To say the conditions were miserable would be putting it
Most modern-day kids didnít feel the need to brave what Jasonís
father called the hillbilly jungle during those hot wretched summer
months. Too many ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, and too hot to go outside
these days when there are so many indoor distractions to be had
under a nice cool air conditioner. Even swimming around here isnít
much fun, not with all the pollution in the lakes. One trip into the
water will make a kid or adult sick for a week.
But, July 4th was just around the corner, the one time of the summer
when kids would venture out to shoot fireworks, and Jason Lewis,
aged fourteen, was getting sick and bored with spending his entire
life indoors. Besides, his dad was off work this week, and despite
loving his father, Jason couldnít relax with his dad around.
Heíd more than likely ask Jason to help him work on one of the cars,
which would inevitably lead to Jason getting yelled at, or heíd be
sure to put Jason to work doing various chores around the house, at
the very least. Either way, Jason would have to suffer the outdoor
hell of the hillbilly jungle, so he might as well get out and do
something. Jasonís dad was not what youíd call a patient man. He
meant well, but when it came to raising a boy, he referred to
lessons he had learned from his own dear old dad growing up Ė that
boys should be tough. Jason didnít have an issue with that concept,
necessarily, but his idea of being tough and his dadís didnít seem
to coincide. Apparently, Jason believed that toughness was related
to how many wizards, monsters, or zombies you could kill during one
sitting of one of his many video games. His dad, however, believed a
man should be able to work without sleep or food for hours on end,
eat anything to survive, hunt, fish, and most certainly be able to
work on anything mechanical. You werenít really working until you
drew blood. Jasonís dad would routinely bleed everywhere anytime he
stuck in his hand under the hood of a car. You would think cars were
put together with razor blades under the hood, but his dad would
force his hands into any nook or cranny to reach whatever was
necessary, until the job was done, bloody mess or not.
