I Came for the Sugar
“What the…?” The waitress was staring at Nise’s sleeve. Panic exploded in my mind.
Nise’s laugh sounded natural as he pulled the worm out. “This is my pet, Mirai.” Nise sprinkled sugar on the table. “He loves this stuff.”
The waitress looked ready to vomit.
I rushed home and let Nise collapse on the couch. I crawled out of his pocket, exhausted from controlling the huge body.
That was too close. I had to get out of this Neanderthal era and back to my own civilized time.
I manned the chrono-communicator. Again. “Mirai to anyone. Get me out of here.”
