Micro Fiction: The Future

Posted by

A man invents a time machine. He is from 1861 to get away from the Civil War. “I will go to the future where there is peace and harmony,” he said. He travels to the year 1898 and sees that there is a war going on. So, he decides to travel further. He ends up in the year 1914 and there is another war going on. So, he goes further and ends up to the year 1939 and sees that there is a war going on. Then, he travels further and ends up in the year 1950 and sees that there is a war still happening. He goes a little further to the future in the year 1975, and there is another war going on. So, he starts to get agitated and goes one more time in the future and ends up in the year 1990 and sees there is still war going on in the world. He gets angry and pushes the button one last time to travel into the future. He ends up in the year 2001 and there is another war going on. He loses his temper and grabs a random person off the street and shouts, “Does the future consist of wars! What the hell has humanity done! It just keeps getting worse and worse!” A desperate man trying to get away from wars expects the future to be peaceful, but ends up in a future of warfare…

  1. “I will go to the future where there is peace and harmony,” Boy was he wrong! I think I might go back to the 1500s. News flash! In 1509 to 1512 was the Ottoman Civil War! Just cant get away from war!!!
    Nice job Daniel. Even a time machine cant help.
