Mrs. Bellweather Inquired of Lucy

Lucy’s current assignment was in 1849.

“You’ve lost your husband, my dear?” Mrs. Bellweather inquired of Lucy.

“I haven’t seen him for a very long time.”

“I’m so sorry. How can you stand it?

Lucy sighed. “Not very well.”

The motto of the Agency sounded so exciting — Time Travel! Preserving the past to secure the future.

Mike and Lucy didn’t find out the truth until it was too late.

“One of you must stay behind as anchor for the other,” the director said. “But don’t worry, it’ll only be for a few thousand years, objective time.”

It seemed far longer.
