Mark, a pizza delivery driver in the year 2016, receives a message in his inbox, sent from his own email address, claiming to be himself from 30 years in the future.
It’s you…from the future.
I know what you’re thinking—”BULLSHIT”—but I swear it’s really me. I’m you.
I’m contacting you through TimeMail (time travel email). This is the first time I’ve tried it, and I’m not even sure if it actually works, but I have some really important things to tell you about your future—my past—our life. So I thought I’d give it a try.
Anyway, if you (I) receive this message, email me (yourself) back. And tell me something only we would know, so I can confirm it’s really you—or me. Once I know this is legit, we can proceed from there.
TimeMail: Time Travel Email is an interactive short story created with Twine. It is available to read for free at https://timemail.neocities.org/. Or if you prefer an offline version, it’s available in ebook format on Amazon and Smashwords.
Is “Future Mark” really who he says he is? Is time travel through email possible? Read the rest of the TimeMails yourself to be the judge.
