Sci-Fi with a Twist Story List
2. The Robber - An old thief goes
back in time to finally obtain his much sought after big score, only
to discover a family secret that could have changed his life
It all began one day when
I was casing a few houses, looking for a quick buck, when I
happened upon this nutty professor's domicile. The guy had a
basement that looked like it was something out of J.C.
Wells, H.C, G.H., or whatever his name is. I mean, the man
literally had a time machine. Of course, I didn't know what
it was at first.
I was carefully turning the joint over, when the professor
unexpectedly came home early. Lucky for me, I found a place
to hide in a nearby closet where I was able to see the
professor work from behind a cracked door.
I watched as the bald headed old geezer walked into his
crazy contraption with all its blinking lights and rotating
thingamabobs and then just disappear. On the top of the
machine was a counter. It said 1926. I was like, there ain't
no way, did this guy do what I think he just did? Then the
good old professor came back out of the machine about thirty
seconds later with his hands full of junk that he brought
back from the 20's. It looked like mostly old magazines and
newspapers. What a waste. I got to thinking, you know, I got
a revolver in my coat, why don't I just take advantage of
the situation, here and now, but then I thought, wait a
minute…maybe, I can figure out how the doc operated the
machine after he leaves…better to use a little stealth and
avoid a murder or kidnapping rap.
So, I snuck back out after the professor went upstairs. I
crawled through one of the basement windows with the skill
of a cat…ok, a fat cat with arthritis, but at least I got
out of there in one piece. I went back to my hideout and
began scheming…err…plotting my next brilliant move.
