A Twist in Time
Lorene Holderfield
 
Holderfield/A Twist in Time/2
Loud, frantic knocks reverberated in Mr. CharlesBadon's workroom. He rolled his eyes in frustration as hedropped a wrench. "Why can I not have peace? I never havepeace in this bloody century. I hate it. I hate everything about it 
—this choking air, the greedy people, the innocent suffering…

"It'snothing.""N-Nothing? Do not throw that at me, sir! I won't buy it,you know.""Truly," he said with a charming smile, "it's nothing youneed to concern yourself with. I'm just creating an inventionthat will
