    @beth20 I’m Timothy, the only one on the site. Which is good, since I’m not going to give out my last name here. 😄

    I didn’t read the mirror part, but I think the basic idea. People are going up and seeing their personalities, more or less?

    “Get back Libby!”

    Isaac heard the man. American English. How long had it been since he had heard anyone from home. Three years? Four years?

    Suddenly, he saw a black blur. Moving too slow, he felt the object strike his chest. Coughing, he heard the clang. He was going to feel this one. Falling to the ground, he felt the area. There was a dent below his shirt collar. Isaac was lucky. His vest had caught the blow. Good thing he had chosen to put metal plate in it for stab protection.

    Rising from the ground, he drew the pistol. He was not going to risk a second hit. Taking aim, Isaac saw the two. The man was older than him, in his twenties. He was holding a poker from a fireplace. That would work as a basic weapon. Not a problem anymore. The girl was kid with glasses, early teens maximum. She held a brightly colored dart gun. The man stepped in front of the girl. He was shielding her with his body.

    “Who are you?” asked Isaac in English.

    for those who don’t know what his gun looks like, here’s a URL https://www.pinterest.com/pin/242279654941363680/

    @rusted-knight Good part! I’m hoping to write Libby’s next part in a minute.

    Also, I really love the gun. I’m don’t know a lot about guns, but I wish I knew more, because I’ll probably get one in the future.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    “Mr. Teagan!” Libby shouted. Someone was trying to open the door in the wall. “Someone is…”   There was a crunch, and the door flew open. Libby got a glimpse of someone’s fist, and a face behind it. She raised her Nerf gun and pulled the trigger.

    “Get back, Libby!” Teagan yanked Libby’s shoulder from behind. She landed on her side, clutching her Nerf gun against her chest.

    Her elbow banged on the floor. “Ouch!” She looked up in time to see Teagan jam a fire poker through the doorway. He looked like someone in a movie, with his brown hair falling over his forehead and his jaw in a firm line.

    Someone on the other side grunted, someone else exclaimed.

    Libby climbed to her feet. Teagan was standing right in front of her.

    “Get out of the way.” She peered out from under his arm and saw the barrel of a pistol looking back at her.

    “Who are you?” A man’s voice asked.

    Libby looked up at Teagan’s face. He was tense.

    He turned his head slowly, and met her wide eyes. “Run.” He mouthed.

    Libby glanced back at the door leading to the hallway. Her fingers tightened on the gun.

    “Don’t move.” The man on the other side of the wall commanded.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    “Who are you?” A man’s voice asked.

    Teagen felt like lifting his hands, as he had every other time when facing a gun. But he would have to drop his weapon. He wasn’t willing to do that. Then there was Libby.

    He glanced to the girl’s face, and mother, ‘Run.’

    Then the barrel faced her head, “Don’t move.”

    Reagent straightened his chest. “I’m Teagen Math, this, this is, we’ll, that doesn’t matter.” The man shook his head, tempted to lift his poker but knowing better. “Who are you sir?” His tone was mocking. “Where are we? I doubt you own this place, I mean, why destroy your own wall? But,” Teagen’s nose flared, he knew he was doing this terribly wrong… He licked his lips. How to remedy this? 

    “I’m sorry I jabbed you. But, but who did you think we were stabbing that hatch and punching it from the wall?”

    @everyone

    Re-write of the last thing. Sorry.

     

    “Who are you?” A man’s voice asked.

    Teagen almost lifted his hands above his head, as he had every other time when facing a gun. But he would have to drop his weapon. He wasn’t willing to do that. Then there was Libby…

    He glanced to the girl’s face, and mouthed, ‘Run.’

    Then the barrel faced her head, “Don’t move.”

    Teagen straightened his chest. “I’m Teagen Jath, this, this is, well, that doesn’t matter.” Teagen shook his head, tempted to lift his poker and take another jab at the man, but even for him that would be foolish. “Who are you sir?” His tone was mocking. “Where are we? I doubt you own this place, why destroy your own wall? But, who do you think we are that you would destroy a perfectly good wall to get to us?” Teagen’s nose flared, He was doing this terribly wrong… He licked his lips. How to remedy this? 

    “If you just back off, we’ll leave you be.”

    Isaac looked at the two. Teagan was a fighter. The only reason he stopped was because of the gun and the threat it posed to the girl. It would be wise to make him an ally rather than a foe. The more allies, the better off they would be. Holstering the gun, Isaac backed away from the window.

    “Personally, I don’t know where we are. I doubt any of us does. If I had to bet, it is a wormhole that has cut through time and universal space.”

    “Yeah. Right. I’m not buying it.” said Teagan

    “There is a way to prove it. What is the date, specifically? Where I can from it is July 6, 1944, A.D.”

    The Devil saw me with my head down and got excited. Then I said Amen

    “There is a way to prove it. What is the date, specifically? Where I came from it is July 6, 1944, A.D.”

    Teagen’s brows nearly jumped to the ceiling, “What?”

    “July 6, 1944 A.D.”

    Teagen’s Adam’s Apple bobbed, and he glanced to Libby face. Her eyes were giant, and her shoulders slouched.

    The man flicked his gaze back to the stranger. “June, 2020.” Teagen shook his head, mind racing. Then his eyes fastened back onto the other man’s for a second. “A.D. mind.” What in the world?!!! This was impossible? It had to be a joke.

    Teagen’s jaw set as his narrow eyes ran over the man from history, “How can you prove you’re from the 1900s?”

    “How can you prove you’re from the 1900s?” asked Teagan.

    How could Isaac prove he was? He had knowledge of the future because of his time travel and he had knowledge of the past from living there. What existed then but not now? Then he remembered something. When he had been in Norway helping the Resistance blow up a shipment of heavy water, he had seen some comics smuggled in from America. One of the passwords was from the comic.

    “Have your read the Phantom comics?”

    The Devil saw me with my head down and got excited. Then I said Amen

    Checking on those comics…seeing if Teagen would have read them…

    What do you want him to say? You probably know a lot more about comics than I do.
