Two weeks pass and nothing more happens. He tries repeatedly to move out of historyclass, to move anywhere at any time, he even tries numerous variations of what hethought he did to move through space, he even went so far as to close his eyes and relaxtotally causing himself to fall asleep and get in trouble for it, but no more moving, nomore disappearing through time.
Two years pass and Jensen has no more incidents with time travel as he likes to refer toit. He tries many times to repeat his process, to rekindle that one time spark he had begunto think was nothing more than a figment of his own imagination or just a dream butnothing, so he decides he won’t think of it again.Fifteen is a fresh start for him, no more childish dreams and his Superman poster has been replaced with a poster of Cindy Crawford in a bikini from A Sports Illustrated thathis brother Jeff has forced on him claiming it’s a coming of age thing. Personally Jensenlikes his poster of Joe Lando from Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman much better but he’dnever let Jeff know that.Jensen’s parents have rented the local bowling alley for his party so he invited a group of friends from his baseball team and school to attend. Sandy is the first to show up.“Thanks for inviting me Jensen,” she says shyly.Jensen smiles as he puts on his rented shoes. “Glad you could make it Sandy.”Jensen helps Sandy pick a ball off the back wall rack. “This should be a good weight for you.” He says holding it in her hands from behind. She smiles blushing red.“I’ve really never bowled; I’ll probably make rain gutter balls all night.” She says.Jensen laughs. “It’s just gutter balls Sandy and don’t worry before anyone gets here I’llshow you how.” He leads her to one of the lanes they have rented for the day.Jensen starts to show Sandy how to hold the ball, he stands behind her and puts the ballon her hand, positions the ball just right and walks her up the lane before swinging her arm back and showing her how to release the ball. Sandy lets it go, it rolls down the alleyat a slow speed but hits seven pins and knocks them over. Jensen smiles at her. “Theresee no rain gutter balls for you.” Jensen flashes her a smile that is all teeth and lips.Sandy claps her hands and jumps excitedly. “Yay!” She cheers.The party is a success, everyone shows up, has a good time, eats, bowls and is gettingready to leave when Sandy walks over to Jensen who is putting on his sneakers and sitsdown next to him on the bench.“Jensen?” She says shakily.Jensen looks up. “Yeah Sandy?”“I... I...” She stammers on the word.“You what, Sandy?” Jensen looks in her wide eyes.’“Oh, I just wanted to say thanks for inviting me.” She smiles shyly.
