Title: Going deeper (Part four)
Characters: Jack, Emily Holroyd
Challenge: 441 - Underground at tw100
Notes: Jack has to convince Emily that he's needed in the future.
'Emily, listen to me, please,' he implored. 'I was taken back in time two thousand years and buried here. I'm still over a hundred years from the future where I'm meant to be found. I can't be here now.'
'Shall I have Alice put you back underground where she found you? I think she'd rather like that.'
That's when the idea hit him.
'Put me in the morgue. Set the timer to wake me again where I intersect with my current timeline a hundred years in the future.'
'And why would I do that?'
'Because the future depends on it.'
